1.) Geoff Nugent (born 14 February 1977), known professionally as Jim Jefferies, is an Australian stand-up comedian, actor and writer.

2.) He first achieved international popularity after he was attacked onstage while performing at the Manchester Comedy Store. At one time, Jefferies incorporated the incident, including its video recording, into his act: this can be seen on his 2008 DVD Contraband. He is well known in the US after his popular debut stand-up special on HBO.

3.) Jefferies has performed at numerous festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe, Montreal Comedy Festival (Just for Laughs), South African Comedy Festival Cape Town, Reading and Leeds Festivals and the Glastonbury Festival. He has appeared on BBC Television shows, such as Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Have I Got News for You, The Heaven and Earth Show, and 8 out of 10 Cats. Jefferies has also performed spots on The World Stands Up, Comedy Blue and Edinburgh and Beyond for the Comedy Central.

5.) Jefferies was on a podcast Jim and Eddie Talkin' Shit twice a week, with his fellow comedian and friend Eddie Ifft. It is recorded from Ifft's home in Los Angeles. In December 2012, Jefferies left the podcast due to his work schedule filming his television series, Legit.
