–THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW Season 3 premieres Tuesday, March 19 at 10:30 p.m. ET–
THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW returns for season three with a focus on diversity and culture from across the globe. The Australian late-night host will take viewers to multiple countries for segments that highlight unique and thought-provoking international experiences. THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW debuts on Tuesday, March 19 at 10:30 p.m. ET following the 11th season premiere of TOSH.0.
In the upcoming season, THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW expands its international scope featuring segments where Jim will explore themes like immigration, gambling and racism. Not content to leave the investigating to a team of correspondents, Jim is one of the few late-night hosts who sends himself around the globe to learn more about the world we live in. No other host travels so far or so frequently, to explore such a wide range of topics. This year, Jim visits Hong Kong to find out if shark fins really give you sexual powers; fakes his own funeral with some South Koreans; spends a night with the “ladyboys” of Thailand; learns why millennials in Japan are too scared to date each other; strains diplomatic relations with North Korea at the DMZ; goes on an African safari with a team of badass female rangers; and finds out why his jokes could land him in jail in Singapore.
In its past two seasons, the series has filmed segments in the Netherlands, Slovenia, Azerbaijan, Australia, United Kingdom, Ireland, Israel, and Canada.
Leading up to the third season premiere, Comedy Central has launched today THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOWYouTube channel featuring the most up-to-date show clips, extended content and digital exclusives.
THE JIM JEFFERIES SHOW is a weekly, topical, late night series which premiered on June 6, 2017 and received a Writers Guild Award nomination in the Comedy/Variety Talk Series Category in its first season. The show features the Australian comedian’s unapologetic, honest and international approach to culture and politics. Jefferies tackles the week’s top stories from behind the desk and travels the globe to far-off locations to provide an eye-opening look at hypocrisy around the world. His sharp take on topics such as immigration, gun control, big game hunting, the National Anthem protests and sexual harassment have pushed the host into the mainstream late night conversation.
