‘Legit’ Season 1 — 2013 TV Preview

Jim Jefferies - 'Legit' 2013 FX
Legit, Facebook

Australian comedian Jim Jefferies brings his hilarious, binge-drinking antics to FX in the new series ‘Legit,’ which premieres Thursday, January 17th.

Jim Jefferies may not be a household name in America yet, but if his new show ‘Legit’ is even a third as funny as his stand-up routine — he will be soon enough. Jefferies first caught our attention in his 2009 HBO special ‘I Swear to God,’ where the Aussie deconstructs everything from religion to the useless nature of “No Smoking” signs. Hopefully, the show can follow in the footsteps of other great TV shows led by stellar comedians like ‘Louie,’ ‘Chappelle’s Show’ and ‘Seinfeld.’

‘Legit’ follows Jefferies, portraying a somewhat fictionalized version of himself, as he continuously tries to “legitimize” his life, which sounds like a pretty vague description. As long as he brings his crude, yet surprisingly brilliant on stage persona to the small screen, there probably isn’t much need for a plot, really. In fact, those who’ve seen his 2010 stand up special ‘Alcoholocaust’ may recognize the plot of the series premiere, where he takes a disabled friend to a brothel.

‘Legit’ also features DJ Qualls (best known as the “You guys want to smoke some drugs?” dude from ‘Road Trip’) and kicks off its 13-episode run January 17th.
