What's the story?
LEGIT stars Australian comedian Jim Jefferies, a thirtysomething Australian stand-up comedian struggling to make a living in Los Angeles. Self-centered and foul-mouthed, he decides to embark on a road of self-improvement by embracing a philosophy of helping others. Encouraging him to improve his ways is his friend Steve (Dan Bakkedahl), a neurotic salesman in the midst of a divorce, and who is committed to helping his disabled brother Billy (DJ Qualls) enjoy what remains of his life. But despite his best efforts, Jim finds the process of making his life more "legit" difficult and uncomfortable, especially when his misguided ideas for helping others includes some wild and outrageous activities.
Is it any good?
Legit is a vehicle for Jim Jefferies' comedy, which is both smart and unapologetically rude. And like his stand-up routines, he uses the show to offer some of this trademark over-the-top ideas about life.
It's definitely edgy, but it also features funny moments thanks to some good writing and well-timed gags. However, show's the mature content is best left for older viewers to enjoy.
