TAMPA, Fla. (March 26, 2019) – Tampa Theatre and AEG Presents are proud to announce that Jim Jefferies is coming BACK to Tampa Theatre, bringing his The Night Talker Tour LIVE to the majestic landmark Theatre at 8:00 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13.

Jim Jefferies is one of the most popular and respected comedians of his generation, entertaining audiences across the globe with his controversial, belief-challenging, and thought-provoking comedy. He was recently named one of the top five touring comedians in the world. Currently, you can see Jim starring in his third Netflix comedy special Jim Jefferies: This Is Me Now. Performing at the Eventim Apollo in London, he unapologetically keeps it real when he opens up about the challenges of being a single father, reflects on the time someone tried to unsuccessfully extort him for money with a sex tape and the weirdest gig he’s ever played.

Additionally, March 2018 marked the premiere of season 2 of Jim’s eponymous Comedy Central series, The Jim Jefferies Show. As a strong voice in late night, the weekly series features Jim traveling across the globe to tackle the top news stories and controversial issues of the day. In addition to the series, Jim also continues to head up the weekly podcast series, The Jim Jefferies Show Podcast, co-hosted by Forrest Shaw. The podcast, from Comedy Central’s Podcast Network, includes interviews and discussions with a variety of guests discussing current news and politics, as well as providing a more in-depth focus on the topics and opinions featured on the television series – with less filters.

In addition, Jim created, wrote, produced, and starred in the critically acclaimed FX series Legit, which ran for two seasons and has since gained a cult following. He has also appeared in the films Killing Hasselhoff and Punching Henry.

Jim currently lives in Los Angeles.

Franklin Street, and online at TampaTheatre.org. Standard tickets are $53.00 (plus applicable fees); Platinum prices are variable.
