Executive Produced by Jim Jefferies, Scott Zabielski, and Brillstein Entertainment Partners' Alex Murray and Tim Sarkes

PASADENA, CA, January 15, 2018 - Comedy Central has picked-up late night series The Jim Jefferies Show for a twenty episode second season, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Comedy Central. The weekly, late night series features the Australian comedian's unapologetic, honest and international approach to culture and politics. The Jim Jefferies Show is currently nominated for a Writers Guild Award in the Comedy/Variety Talk Series category.

"You'd think I'd stop being surprised at how smart and funny Jim is about everything," said Alterman. "I'm just glad we're still giving visas to people from whatever shithole country he comes from."

"I'm very happy that The Jim Jefferies Show will be coming back for a second season," said Jefferies. "Thank you so much to Kent Alterman and everyone else at Comedy Central that makes this show possible. We have great things planned for this season including field pieces in Europe and Israel that I'm recording right now. I have missed being on air during the hiatus but luckily the President hasn't said or done anything stupid worth talking about."

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. Jefferies sharp take on topics such as gun control, big game hunting, the National Anthem protests and sexual harassment have pushed the host into the mainstream late night conversation.

The Jim Jefferies Show ranks as Comedy Central's #1 freshman series this year among P18-49.*

Jefferies, Scott Zabielski, Jason Reich and Brillstein Entertainment Partners' Alex Murray and Tim Sarkes are the Executive Producers of The Jim Jefferies Show. Adam Londy and Daniel Wolfberg are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.
