An Australian comic that has performed around the world throughout the United States, South Africa and Asia, Jefferies and his caustic, brutally frank sense of humor has also been viewed by legions of fans worldwide on a series of HBO, Epix, Comedy Central and Netflix comedy specials.
Never afraid to court controversy, and not big on political correctness, Jefferies' forthright and opinionated shows have sometimes divided audiences, and even led to a violent outburst at the Manchester Comedy Store (now seen by over 20 million people on the internet). But no one ever said being a comedian was easy, even if Jefferies makes it look that way.
His latest Netflix special “BARE” filmed at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre recently grabbed top honors at the 2015 Comedy Awards for “Comedy Special of the Year”. Jefferies’ previous comedy specials also include “Fully Functional”, “Alcoholocaust”, “I Swear to God” & “Contraband". In 2013, Jefferies starred in his own comedy series on FX titled “Legit”.
He’s also been on numerous chat shows, panel shows and has even starred in a movie opposite The Hoff and Justin Bieber.
