Australian born Jim Jeffries is a headline performer in countries including USA,
Canada, India, Bahrain, Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, South Africa, Sweden,
Singapore, Dubai, Norway, France, Holland and the UK. Regarded as one of
comedy’s fastest rising stars for stage and screen, his brash confrontational
style has made him one of the most sought after comics on the world stage.
Jim succeeds with jokes that most comedians wouldn’t touch with an ability to
both charm and offend the crowd in equal measure.
In 2005 Jim wowed audiences at The Montreal ’Just for Laughs’ Festival where he
performed in the highly acclaimed ’Nasty Show’ and garnered one of the biggest
press articles at the festival and was asked to return back in 2007 with his
solo show ‘THE SECOND COMING’ which sold out EVERY night and had ticket touts
selling his tickets at 3 times face value.
In 2007 Jim turned 30 and it wasn’t an easy year. He has narrowly avoided bombs
in Iraq (where he was performing), punched in the face at The Comedy Store in
Manchester (with the video clip being seen by over 8 million people over the
Internet). If that’s not enough he also had a cancerous tumor removed from his
penis and this year notoriously took on the Obsournes.
Off the back of two very successful Montreal and Edinburgh shows Jim is now
touring the US (LA, San Francisco, Kansas City, Miami, Arlington, Chicago,
Boston, Sacramento, Cleveland, Philadelphia and also opened for Dennis Leary at
the 2800 capacity Beacon Theatre during the New York Comedy Festival).
It’s not all about live work though. Jim is in demand for TV and panel TV shows
alike and you can catch Jim on ‘Have I Got News For You’ (BBC1 & 2) ’Never Mind
the Buzzcocks’ (BBC2), ‘Comedy Cuts 1 & 2’ (ITV2) and ‘Comedy Blue’ (Paramount).
