LAST WEEK TONIGHT WITH JOHN OLIVER
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.
