The Jim Jefferies Show 

Review of "The Jim Jefferies Show" 6/14/17 by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays 10:30/9:30c on Comedy Central

I loved Jim Jefferies in his FX show "Legit." He's very funny. I'm glad to see he has a new show. It's very funny as well. Instead of a sitcom, it's a comedy news show, like "The Daily Show."  Jim is Australian, and he puts his own unique spin on what's going on in the world. He's very liberal, much like Trevor Noah. However, he's not very politically correct. He might remind you more of Bill Maher with some of his more tasteless jokes. I find him to be hilarious.

Besides just talking about what's going on in the world, he has taped bits where he goes places and interviews people. Those are very funny as well.

Finally, if you see the cute guy who's playing his weatherman... it's Brad Pitt! That is hilarious, too. I was like, who is that cute guy that looks kind of like Brad Pitt? LOL!

Check it out.

JIM JEFFERIES BRINGS HIS INQUISITIVE AND INTERNATIONAL POINT OF VIEW TO COMEDY CENTRAL® IN NEW WEEKLY, LATE NIGHT SERIES

  • Executive Produced by Jefferies, Scott Zabielski and Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ Alex Murray and Tim Sarkes
  • 10-Episode Weekly Series Set to Debut This Summer

We’re in the midst of some intense and dividing times in America and Australian comedian Jim Jefferies is here to cue the laughs and cut through the bullshit with his new weekly, late night series for Comedy Central, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central. The half-hour series is executive produced by Jefferies, Scott Zabielski, and Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ Alex Murray and Tim Sarkes. Jason Reich (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee) is co-executive producer and head writer. The 10-episode season is scheduled to premiere this Summer.

“I’d like to thank Comedy Central for this incredible opportunity,” said Jefferies. “It’s always been a dream of mine to do a show in this arena and I can’t wait for everyone to see what we’ve got planned.”

“Jim has a huge comedic voice on the global stage,” said Alterman. “During development, we also learned his talent is only surpassed by his incredible work ethic.”

Australian comic, Jim Jefferies moves behind the desk to take on culture and politics in his new (untitled) Comedy Central weekly, late night series. Fresh off a series of blockbuster comedy specials, Jefferies travels around the globe to tackle the week’s top stories and most controversial issues. Plus, he’ll talk about Donald Trump because, unfortunately, there’s no way he can avoid it. Monika Zielinska and Adam Londy are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.

A comedian, actor and writer, Jim Jefferies has established himself as one of the most respected comics of his generation with a controversial and belief-challenging stand-up style that continues to surprise and entertain audiences around the globe. He recently wrapped an international stand-up tour, “The Unusual Punishment Tour,” to rave reviews which came on the heels of releasing his second Netflix special Freedumb last summer. Jefferies burst onto the U.S. comedy scene in 2009 with his popular HBO special I Swear to God, the first of seven specials, including his debut Netflix special, Jim Jefferies: BARE, which garnered attention for an iconic set focused on guns and gun control in the United States.

He has appeared on Comedy Central’s @midnight with Chris Hardwick and The Comedy Jam special that aired last August. Jefferies has also found critical success as an actor where he played the role of “Charlie” in the feature film And Punching the Clown, that premiered at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival and he created, wrote, produced and starred in the critically-acclaimed series Legit, which ran for two season on FX.
