After 5 sold out shows in Toronto The Dark Comedy Festival is bringing Austrailian Comedian Jim Jefferies to the west coast.
Australian born Jim Jefferies is a headline performer in countries such as America, Canada, Asia, South Africa, Europe and the UK. Regarded as one of the fastest rising stars in the comedy world, his shockingly charming style has made him one of the most sought after comics on the world stage. Jim gets away with jokes that most comedians wouldn't touch due to his ability to both charm and offend the crowd in equal measure.
Jim returned to the Edinburgh Festival last summer, where he performed a month-long, sold-out run of his critically acclaimed, smash-hit new solo show "Hammered." As one of the most successful acts at Edinburgh several years running, Jim performed for over 5,000 people. Jim was the talk of the Montreal's Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in 2007, wowing audiences with his performances in the "Nasty Show," and most notably, his one-hour solo show. Jim first appeared at the Just for Laughs Festival in 2005, where he performed in the highly acclaimed "Nasty Show," and garnered one of the biggest press articles at the festival.
In America, Jim has been seen in his own one-hour HBO special, "I Swear To God," as well as "Down and Dirty with Jim Norton." In England, he has appeared on such shows as ITV2's "Comedy Cuts" and "If.Com Eddies," as well as on BBC1's "Heaven & Earth" and BBC2's "Never Mind the Buzzcocks." Jim was also on Channel 4's "The History of Offensive Humor," as well as "The World Stands Up" and "Edinburgh and Beyond" for the Paramount Comedy Channel.
