Initially announced hot off the heels of his 2017 smash hit Netflix special Freedumb, The Night Talker Tour has taken Los Angeles-based Jim across the USA and Canada. The prolific comic’s most recent hit is the brutally hilarious This Is Me Now, filmed at London’s iconic Eventim Apollo Theatre (formerly the Hammersmith Apollo) in early 2018, and dropped on Netflix globally in July to resounding critical acclaim.
The indefatigable wordsmith famously has an hour-plus of new material every time he hits the road, and the sheer expectant energy from a Jim Jefferies audience is always electric.
A smash hit in the USA, Jim has hosted Comedy Central’s The Jim Jefferies Show since 2017, the initial 10-episode run renewed for a further 20 episodes before the first season had even wrapped. His acclaimed 2013 sit‐com Legit (written, directed by and starring Jim) aired for two seasons to a diehard fanbase.
Jim has a background in musical theatre, ballet and classical music. Awarded scholarships from the Sydney Opera House and the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), throat nodules forced him to prematurely retire his burgeoning singing career. In 2007, Jim was punched by a stage-invading heckler during a set at the Manchester Comedy Store. The incident was captured on the venue’s in-house video, and the footage became one of YouTube’s earliest viral videos – quickly accruing almost two million views. Suddenly everyone wanted to see Jim Jefferies live!
