Jim Jefferies has really began to find a niche in the US comedy market. Particularly because he’s an Australian living in the US. And, let’s be honest, nothing fires up people more than a foreigner saying somewhat tough ideas about American culture and American politics. In fact, the timing of his new Netflix special, Freedumb works out as Jefferies has the unfortunate fortunality of being the writer of a bit that gets circulated on social media whenever the gun control debate heats up. As we too often find ourselves in said situation, the byproduct of such events have allowed for more people to become acquainted with Jefferies.
Now, on July 1st Jefferies will follow up his 2014 special BARE with Freedumb on Netflix. Judging by the first look trailer Jefferies is doubling down on his efforts and tackling more things American like the Presidential race, politics, marriage, and as the title of the special suggests, our obsession with Freedom.
