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. Jefferies is currently at work on Freedumb, his fifth major standup special in seven years. The show was filmed in Nashville and will premiere on Netflix later this year.
Freedumb will be Jefferies’ second special to air on Netflix after the huge success of Jim Jefferies: BARE, which Uproxx called one of “the 15 best stand-up specials on Netflix.” In BARE, Jefferies delivered a now iconic set that focused on guns and gun control in the United States.
Jefferies burst on to the scene in the US after his popular debut HBO special I Swear to God. His additional successful comedy specials include Contraband, Alcoholocaust, and Fully Functional.
Jefferies is not only one of the best-selling touring comics but has also found critical success in his acting endeavors. He was most recently seen as “Charlie” in And Punching the Clown, which was shown as part of the 2016 SXSW Film Festival. He also created, wrote, produced, and starred in the critically acclaimed FX series Legit, which ran for two seasons and has since gained a cult following.
He currently lives in Los Angeles.
