Jim Jefferies NZ
KICKS OFF HIS MUCH-ANTICIPATED NEW ZEALAND TOUR THIS MONTH
Stand-up heavyweight Jim Jefferies’ hotly anticipated 11-date New Zealand tour begins this Wednesday 11 January at Invercargill’s Civic Theatre, after being postponed in 2016 due to the filming of his own brand-new major US TV pilot.
With four shows across Christchurch and Auckland already sold out - including additional shows which were added to meet public demand - and the rest of the tour selling fast, it’s clear that the Kiwis can’t get enough of Jim Jefferies!
This will be Jim’s largest New Zealand tour to date; playing 11 dates throughout Invercargill, Dunedin, Christchurch, Auckland, Wellington, Palmerston North, New Plymouth, Hamilton and Napier.
★★★★★ - The List (UK)
★★★★★ - Edinburgh Evening News (UK)
The Australian-born, US-based comic was last in the country for two sold out shows at Auckland Town Hall and Wellington Opera House for the 2016 New Zealand Comedy Festival, and previously in 2014 for his sold-out debut NZ show at Auckland’s ASB Theatre.
★★★★ ‘The ultimate rock star...insanely entertaining and incessantly unremorseful.’ - Beat Magazine (AUS)
‘Jefferies is one of the most exciting comics to watch in a live setting’ - LaughSpin (USA)
‘A gifted, word-class comic’ - NewsHub
With more than 200 million online views and a total of 50,000 tickets sold on his 2016 Australian tour, Jim is one of the biggest comedy stars in the world. He was recently named 2016 Stand Up Comedian Of The Year in The Interrobang’s readers poll in which over 10,000 people voted:
‘Jim Jefferies is a comedy powerhouse. He aims to kill and he succeeds every time. A comedy sledgehammer in some moments, and a rapier in others, Jefferies is the big winner in this year’s vote.
If there was a Mt Rushmore for comics performing today, Jim Jefferies would have to be considered. He's released eight hour specials in just seven years, and his latest, Freedumb is just brilliant. Jefferies’ The Unusual Punishment Tour was wildly successful, and we hear he is developing a late night style talk show with Comedy Central.
Jefferies is both shocking and smart, and unbelievably fast and his fans are hardcore and loyal. Because he isn’t a self promoter you might not be aware just how gigantic he is, but show up at any of his theater shows and you’ll see what a force he is and continues to be, in the US and around the world. Jim Jefferies is 100% here to stay and he is your readers pick for 2016 stand up comedian of the year.’
Don’t miss your chance to see him on his biggest New Zealand tour yet - every past show Jim has performed in the country has sold out - get in quick!
