Plot Synopsis

Executive produced and hosted by Australian comedian Jim Jefferies, THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW is a weekly, half-hour series in which Jefferies takes on culture and politics with an unapologetic, honest and international approach. Each week, Jefferies tackles the week's top stories from behind his desk and travels the globe to far-off locations to provide an eye opening look at hypocrisy around the world. Featuring interviews, international field pieces, and man-on-the-ground investigations, Jefferies covers the most controversial issues, all through the lens of his distinctive brand of comedy. On the series premiere, Jim tackles the tricky subject of racism. On Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at 10:30pm ET/PT, Comedy Central debuted the fall premiere of THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW. Season 2 of THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW premiered on Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 10:30pm ET/PT. This season, Jim continues to shake up the humdrum formula of the political late-night show, as he attacks current events and travels around the globe for a firsthand look at the world's most pressing issues. After a three-week break, THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW returned with new episodes on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 10:30pm ET/PT on Comedy Central.

After nearly a four-month break, THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW returned with new episodes on Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 10:30pm ET/PT on Comedy Central. The return of new episodes will feature guest interviews with legendary athlete, activist, Presidential Medal of Freedom winner and writer, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (airs 10/16) and actor/comedian Ty Burell, with more to be announced.

Jim sat down with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to talk about his feud with Trump, his feelings on Colin Kaepernick's protest, and what the future of America looks like. With Ty Burrell, Jim spent time with him discussing his charity which focuses on working with foster children.

The field piece to air in the premiere episode is a "Ride Along with the Amsterdam Police." California is the latest US state to legalize marijuana and critics claim that it will lead to more serious drug use, traffic deaths and a rise in crime. Meanwhile, Amsterdam, famous for its Red Light District, was just named one of the safest cities in the world. Jefferies rides with two cops in Europe's den of depravity to find out how bad crime really is in a city where prostitution and drugs are legal.

Upcoming field pieces and investigations to be highlighted in future episodes include:

Conservative vs Liberal Parenting: One Trump supporter wants to Make Parenting Great Again by bringing back spanking. And he's offering to spank other people's kids, too. Jim sits down with him, and with a liberal child development expert, to pick the ideal parenting style.

Hawaii -- Nudism Is my Religion: A group of nudists have been evicted from their wild Honolulu party house. But they claim they're being persecuted for simply practicing their religion, which includes Nude Yoga and Naked Taco Tuesdays. Is it ridiculous, or could this finally be a religion Jim can get behind?

Chicago Gun Violence: Jim visits the South Side of Chicago to meet people whose daily lives are affected by a flood of illegal guns, explore how local gun control laws are working, and see how people are fighting to reclaim their neighborhood.
