Get ready for Schumer’s trademark concoction of self-depreciating jabs and all-so-inappropriate insights that is sure to have you high from uncontrollable laughter!
The Jim Jefferies Show is here to shake up the humdrum formula of the political late-night show by bringing piercing insight and a uniquely Aussie viewpoint to the scene with a fresh no-bullshit candor.
