Prior to “Legit,” Jefferies appeared on numerous TV shows in England including Channel 4’s “The History of Offensive Humor,” BBC1’s “Heaven and Earth,” and ITV2’s “Comedy Cults.” U.S. audiences got their first taste of Jefferies when he appeared on HBO’s “Down and Dirty with Jim Norton,” which in turn lead to his critically acclaimed and international hit, one-hour HBO special, “I Swear to God.” He followed that up with a Showtime special titled “Alchoholocaust” and “Fully Functional” on the EPIX network.
