Comedy Central Orders Jim Jefferies Late-Night Series


Jim Jefferies, ‘Bare’

This summer, Australian comedian Jim Jefferies will be on our late-night screens thanks to Comedy Central.

The network ordered a 10-episode half-hour series where Jefferies will travel around the world to tackle the week’s top stories and most controversial issues. Jefferies is just coming off an international stand-up tour, “The Unusual Punishment Tour,” which came on the heels of releasing his second Netflix special Freedumb last summer.

The show is executive produced by Jefferies, Scott Zabielski, and Brillstein Entertainment Partners’ Alex Murray and Tim Sarkes. Jason Reich, a former writer for The Daily Show With Jon Stewart is returning to Comedy Central as co-executive producer and head writer for Jefferies’ show.
