Jim Jefferies is an Australian comedian who has achieved international popularity after he was attacked onstage while performing at the Manchester Comedy Store. At one time, Jefferies even incorporated the incident (and its video recording) into his act.
He quickly became a friend of the show, and has been compared to Jim Norton in terms of his perverted sexual habits, such as coming in a woman's mouth and having her spit it into his mouth - revealed during his appearance on April 3, 2008.
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 BBC Television 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 the Comedy Central.
Jefferies was on a podcast Jim and Eddie Talkin' Shit twice a week, with his fellow comedian and friend Eddie Ifft. It is recorded from Ifft's home in Los Angeles. In December 2012, Jefferies left the podcast, citing his work schedule because of filming his new television series, Legit.
Jefferies' new comedy series Legit premiered on 17 January 2013 on FX, and thirteen episodes are scheduled to air. The series has received positive attention for its portrayal of people with mental and physical handicaps
