Jim Jeffries is an Australian stand-up comedian, actor and writer.
He first achieved international popularity after he was attacked onstage while performing at the Manchester Comedy Store. At one time, Jefferies incorporated the incident, including its video recording, into his act: this can be seen on his 2008 DVD Contraband. He became well known in the US after his popular debut stand-up special on HBO.
Jefferies has performed at numerous festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe, Montreal Comedy Festival (Just for Laughs), South African Comedy Festival Cape Town, Reading and Leeds Festivals and the Glastonbury Festival. He has appeared on British comedy panel shows such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Have I Got News for You, The Heaven and Earth Show and 8 Out of 10 Cats. Jefferies has also performed spots on The World Stands Up,Comedy Blue and Edinburgh and Beyond for Comedy Central.
He has also been featured on various radio programmes, including BBC Radio 5 Live’s Saturday morning sports show, Fighting Talk.
Jefferies ran a podcast, Jim and Eddie Talkin’ Shit, twice a week with his fellow comedian and friend Eddie Ifft. It was recorded from Ifft’s home in Los Angeles. In December 2012, Jefferies left the podcast due to his work schedule filming his television series, Legit.
Jefferies’s comedy series Legit premiered on 17 January 2013 on FX. A second season premiered on 26 February 2014, having been moved to FXX. The series has received positive attention for its portrayal of people with mental and physical handicaps.
In February 2014 he starred in a low budget Australian feature film called Me and My Mates vs the Zombie Apocalypse with Australian comedians Greg Fleet and Alex Williamson, set for release in 2015.
