- chosen by our readers as the Comedian of the Year in 2016 is already off to a gigantic 2017. His new Comedy Central late night series debuted on June 6, and just a few days before the premiere, it already looks like it’s going to be a tremendous hit. Just days before the debut of his exciting new Comedy Central late night talk show, sat down with to tape his second hour as part of the Unmasked series and it’s an instant classic. Jefferies will be covering a lot of current events weekly for his new series, so in this episode of Unmasked he covers plenty of current ground giving his thoughts on Kathy Griffin, his fight with Piers Morgan, and he discusses the President and his family. He also gets personal, joking about his hemorrhoid surgery, talking about getting ready for his new show, and changes in his career, getting older, and meeting changing audience expectations.

The episode was taped on June 1, 2017 in front of a live audience at SiriusXM’s headquarters in their “Fishbowl” performance studio.

Jefferies had previously appeared on Unmasked in 2013 to promote his IFC series- Legit– and that hour instantly became on of our favorites (in fact you can hear it on this podcast!). In the first Unmasked, Jefferies shares behind the scenes stories from his sitcom, Legit, his stand up, his family, and his demons and addictions, and gives away a few trade secrets including how he got to be so good at telling long-form stories.

This year our readers voted Jim Jefferies the Comedian of the Year for 2016, and the honor is well deserved. We call Jefferies the quiet giant in comedy right now because he doesn’t chase media attention, so not everyone is aware what a force he has become in the comedy world. But that’s all about to change with his new Comedy Central series. He just released his 8th hour special in just 7 years and it’s as brilliant as the last. He tours worldwide with a fanbase that is as passionate about Jefferies, as Jefferies is about everything he talks about. He is one of the smartest and funniest comics working today.

We think he’s just brilliant, so we’re proud to present the second Jim Jefferies Unmasked episode, taped on June 1, 2017 in the SiriusXM Fishbowl.

Enjoy.
