Get your affairs in order because Sydney-born comedian Jim Jefferies has released more dates for his yet-again extended “Give ‘Em What They Want” tour! This international production first launched towards the end of 2022, hopping from North America to Europe to Asia, establishing Jim as one of the Top 5 touring comedians of his generation.

“This man is passing a kidney stone and still put on one of the funniest performances I've seen to date. Can't recommend a more relatable and honest comic that checks the boxes at every level. What a beast!”
Jim Jefferies is your go-to guy for masterfully crafted comedy that will leave you equally deep in thought and howling in fits of laughter! Though Jim debuted in the stand-up scene as a one-liner spitting act, he eventually moved on to quirky anecdotal humor to fit his hour-long sets. Funnily enough, he owes his initial international fame after getting attacked during his gig at the 2007 Manchester Comedy Festival. Not one to waste the humor in being at the receiving end of violence, Jim incorporated footage from the incident in his first stand-up special “Contraband.” The success of the show spawned three more in the following years: “I Swear to God,” “Alcoholocaust,” and “Fully Functional.” His most recent special is 2023’s “High & Dry,” a strange collection of stoned koala stories and middle-aged man problems.
Jim also co-created and starred in the hit FX sitcom “Legit” and Comedy Central’s “The Jim Jefferies Show,” which was nominated in the 2018 Writers Guild of America Awards for Best Comedy/Variety Series. In 2019, the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival honored him with a Stand-Up Comedian of the Year award.
Recognized as one of Boston’s most culturally significant landmarks, the historic Wang Theatre exudes the vaudevillian splendor of the Roaring ‘20s. Its gorgeous Renaissance backdrop makes a compelling contrast to Jim’s contemporary humor, with stellar acoustics and interior lighting to boot.
