not as bad as some people make it seem

The Jim Jeffries show does have quite a bit of cursing, but I promise your kid has heard it before. He talks about s*x, but again, if your kid is 14+, he's heard it all before.

This title has:

Too much swearing
age 18+

Absolutely brilliant humor, delivery, and wit

To the other reviewer, I hope you understand that this is a LATE show on COMEDY central. Jim Jeffries is absolutely hilarious, not one sided at all! (He teases both sides equally), so engaging and I have watched all of his episodes on demand because i simply cannot get enough. I wish he can replace that uninteresting failure on the daily show. It will bring the show life again. But I'm happy the way things are. If you want a great laugh with wonderful wit, watch his show. South park and his show are the only reasons I watch CC anymore.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This news-driven comedy looks at a wide range of social, economic, and political issues from an unapologetically irreverent point of view. The topics are timely, and there are some funny lines and quirky field segments. However, it lacks the sharp, smart wit that similar shows like Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and Full Frontal with Samantha Bee are known for.

The host offers some interesting insight, but thanks to some bad timing and unimaginative political discussions, the Jim Jefferies Show sometimes feels unbalanced and unoriginal. As a result, there are some chuckle-worthy moments and moments when you just can't help but feel that you've heard it all before. Nonetheless, if you're a Jim Jefferies' fan, or like his style of humor, you might find it worth watching.
