Jim Jefferies to Perform at Lincoln Theatre, July 11th

Aussie sensation Jim Jefferies is coming to the nation's capital, July 11th for two shows at the historic Lincoln Theatre. You might know Jefferies from his HBO and Showtime specials and/or FXX's series Legit. He's one funny dude; and his live stand-up is equal parts hilarious and irreverent. Check out the video below to see what Jim's willing to do, just to get a fair shake when the check comes.

“Day Streaming” is Jefferies’ first full North American tour! Jefferies is the creator and star of “Legit,” an edgy, controversial original comedy series which returned to FXX for a second season in January. Jefferies portrays a heightened version of himself as a comedian from Australia who realizes there's more to life (and his career) than the rock-and-roll lifestyle of stand-up comedy. Prior to “Legit,” Jefferies has appeared on numerous TV shows in England including Channel 4's “The History of Offensive Humor,” BBC1's “Heaven and Earth,” and ITV2's “Comedy Cults.” U.S. audiences got their first taste of Jefferies when he appeared on HBO's “Down and Dirty with Jim Norton,” which in turn led to his critically-acclaimed and international hit one-hour HBO special, “I Swear to God.” He followed that up with a Showtime special titled “Alchoholocaust and Fully Functional” on the EPIX Network.
