Over the last few years, there has been one comedian that has pushed the boundaries of comedy. His crass style is a breath of fresh air in a world filled with fart jokes and regurgitated bullshit. Jim Jeffries has been stirring up a ton of attention with his outlandish wit and controversial topics. He gained international recognition when a video of an audience memeber walking up and slugging him in the face during a set went viral. Here is the video if you are interested:
Over the past few years he has risen up the ranks and truly built a name for himself in the line of dark comedians. I personally find his humor to be amazing. He delivers his jokes like a steam roller, and doesn’t give a fuck if you laugh or not. He conveys this macho demeanor that leaves him looking more like an asshole story teller than a comedian. But alas this is all part of the act, he has mastered his stage personae.
On October 22nd, 2011 he will be visiting our fair city at the Rickshaw Theater, as part of the Dark Comedy Festival tour. The bill will also contain David Andrew Brent and Rob Mailloux for some added darkness. I would suggest everyone buy a ticket tot his show. It will be an epic night of hilarity. Jim Jeffries is walking up the ranks quickly, the next time he comes to town ti will surely be to sell out the Queen E or Orpheum. Time to rush out and see him before the fame takes over. If you need some more reasoning as to why to see him, check this little video out.
