Having sold out arenas worldwide – including iconic venues such as Madison Square Garden and London’s O2 Arena – Jefferies stands out as one of the most provocative and respected comedians of our generation.

His previous 2022 Antipodean tour was a massive success.

Now, it’s time for this boundary-pushing comedian and political commentator to head back down under.

Having graced some of the world’s best comedy stages, including Edinburgh Fringe, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Reading and Leeds and Glastonbury, Jefferies was awarded ‘Stand-Up Comedian of the Year’ at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Festival in 2019.

He is currently the host of runaway hit game show The 1% Club, which continues to receive phenomenal ratings, reaching a total national audience of 1,520,000 in February.

His ability to tackle controversial topics with intelligence and humour has earned him a huge global following and critical acclaim, making him one the most successful, arena selling comedians on the planet.

With nine Netflix comedy specials to his name including 2017’s highly-praised Freedumb, 2018’s brutally hilarious This Is Me Now and 2020’s Intolerant, Jeffries also hosts popular podcast I Don’t Know About That.

His early sitcom Legit aired for two seasons to a diehard US fanbase, while his late-night satirical program for Comedy Central, The Jim Jefferies Show, became one of the most talked-about shows worldwide for three years running following its 2017 debut.

Even Brad Pitt asked to make a guest appearance.
