Jim Jefferies continues to take America by storm, selling out theatres and clubs alike with his third world tour, Jim Jefferies: Fully Functional. One of the most sought-after comedians, his shows sell out at comedy festivals and have proven to be coveted tickets at Montreal’s Just For Laughs and Edinburgh’s Fringe Comedy Festival for almost a decade running. One of this generation’s brightest stars of comedy, Jefferies challenges people’s beliefs and routine behavior while taking on his favorite subjects of religion, politics and sex, all with his signature charm and wit. He is best known for his living-on-the-edge, true life stories in which he usually has good intentions wrapped up in deviant behaviour.
In August, Jefferies headlined a Showtime one-hour comedy special Alcoholocaust which garnered record-breaking ratings. His HBO debut, Jim Jefferies: I Swear to God was met with rave reviews - his bold and painfully honest commentary captivated all who tuned in. Jefferies has also been seen on HBO’s Down and Dirty with Jim Norton and he hosted Live at Gotham for Comedy Central. He shot his third one-hour comedy special this summer.
Jefferies is currently working on the new FX Network comedy series, Legit, slated to debut in January 2013. In addition to starring, he also writes and produces the show, which is based on Jim’s outrageous life experiences.
