Jim Jefferies has firmly established himself as one of the most popular and respected comedians of his generation, with a controversial and belief-challenging standup style that continues to surprise and entertain audiences across the globe.

Jim Jefferies is from Australia, but much like those aforementioned Australian staples, Jefferies has gone global. Actually, we’re not completely sure if Vegemite is really a thing in any other part of the world. Jefferies has been makin’ blokes and sheilas laugh since 2007, but it wasn’t until 2009 that his comedy reached international audiences here in the states. Since then he’s performed at too many festivals and famous venues to count. He’s even had an HBO special and has had two of his own network TV shows (Legit on FX and The Jim Jefferies Show on Comedy Central).
