THE JIM JEF­FERIES SHOW 9PM, WED­NES­DAY, COM­EDY CHAN­NEL

FOR those who haven’t heard of Jim Jef­feries, he’s an Aus­tralian comic and sav­age po­lit­i­cal com­men­ta­tor, liv­ing in the US. He made a name for him­self with his stand-up rou­tine about US gun con­trol (Google it); a break­through with what re­mains a very di­vi­sive sub­ject. It earned him rave re­views for his hon­est, straight-talk­ing ap­proach. But he has just as many crit­ics for be­ing foul-mouthed, provoca­tive and not ev­ery­one’s cup of tea. Still, it’s his tim­ing that can let him down – be­ly­ing the acute aware­ness of this sur­pris­ingly savvy ob­server.
