The Jim Jefferies Show is an American late-night talk and news satire television program hosted by comedian Jim Jefferies. The show airs Tuesdays on Comedy Central, and tackles the week’s top stories and most controversial issues. In March 2017, Comedy Central ordered ten half-hour episodes. The series premiered on June 6, 2017,[1] and was later extended with ten additional episodes, that began airing after a five-week hiatus.[2] As of October 17, 2017, 15 episodes of The Jim Jefferies Show have aired.

Background

 Jefferies in 2012
Jefferies in 2012

Prior to his foray into late night television, Jefferies starred in the comedy series Legit, which ran for two seasons between 2013 and 2014 on FX and FXX.[3] Early in his stand-up career, Jefferies was well known for his off-color humor. In his Netflix special Bare (2014), Jefferies performed a routine on gun control,[4] which was previously used in his stand-up and on Legit.[5][6] The Bare routine has gone viral, especially after mass shootings in the United States.[7][8] Jefferies revisited the topic in his Netflix special Freedumb (2016),[9] in which he also criticized then-Republican candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.[10] Jefferies has since become a commentator, often speaking to newspapers and appearing on television programs to discuss his political opinions.[11]

In late 2016, Comedy Central ordered a pilot for the show, which was taped on December 7.[12] The network picked up the show as a weekly half-hour series in March 2017, with ten episodes set to air in the summer.[13]

Actor Brad Pitt became a fan of Jefferies after seeing clips of his standup, and called him to ask if he could be part of his new show. He was enthusiastic when Jefferies suggested he be the show's weatherman. Pitt, who is only referred to generically as "Jim Jefferies Show Weatherman", is paid the SAG minimum salary of $400 per episode.[14]

Promotion

In anticipation of the program's premiere, an online presence was launched for The Jim Jefferies Show in May 2017, including social media accounts. Jefferies introduced a fictional goldfish for the family of Donald Trump named Dave, who is dubbed the first goldfish of the United States.[15] In June, Jefferies appeared as a guest on Unmasked,[16] The Daily Show,[17] CBS This Morning,[18] Off Camera[19] and Conan.[20] Jefferies will continue performing stand-up gigs in between show tapings and media appearances.[21]

Production

The Jim Jefferies Show is taped on Tuesdays around 12:00 p.m. Pacific time at Sunset Las Palmas Studios in Hollywood, California.[22]

Broadcast

In Australia, The Jim Jefferies Show airs Thursdays on Foxtel's Comedy Channel and Fetch TV's Comedy Central Australia.[23][24][25]

In Canada, The Jim Jefferies Show airs Tuesdays on The Comedy Network.[23][26]

In the United Kingdom, The Jim Jefferies Show airs Fridays on Comedy Central UK.[23][27]

Podcast

A podcast co-hosted by Jefferies and Forrest Shaw[28] is released on Wednesdays,[29] and serves as an aftershow for the television program.[30] Each podcast features detailed commentary on news and politics, segments featured in the latest television episode, and jokes that were unused or too mature for television.[31] It premiered on September 20, 2017 as the first series of a new podcast network for Comedy Central.[32]

Reception

In a mixed review of the show for the Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Fienberg wrote that "What The Jim Jefferies Show needs is to stop trying to be like the other kids and to start trying to be like Jim Jefferies."[33] Mike Hale of the New York Times also gave the show a mixed review, writing that "As a late-night host, Mr. Jefferies can appear to be doing nothing much, but there’s a tricky balancing act going on between his ordinary-bloke persona and his sometimes savagely raunchy punch lines. The results are hit and miss, and sometimes it’s a long while between hits." However, Hale also praised Jefferies for occasionally delivering "explosive" lines in the show.[34]
