Jefferies went on to create LEGIT, a sitcom for FX, which he wrote, produce and starred for the last two years.
Jefferies’s third one hour special, “Fully Functional,” premiered on EPIX in the fall of 2012 and can currently been seen on Netflix, ITunes and is available on DVD.
His most recent original comedy special, BARE, recently premiered exclusively on Netflix. In BARE, Jim exceeds our expectations with his side-splitting stories of sex and drugs, as well as taking on the Second Amendment, having a relationship, and being a father.

The Comic Strippers

​Presented by SHantero Productions

October 22, 2015
Showtimes:
7:30pm

The Comic Strippers are a fictitious male stripper troupe, played  by a cast of some of Canada’s best improvisational comedians. These guys try to be sexy… it just comes out funny. Constantly grooving and gyrating, in between scenes they banter with the crowd and perform their sexylarious twist on improv sketches. They sing, they “dance;” these guys are oiled up and ready to make you laugh. Women often say the most attractive thing about a man is his sense of humour - so ladies, these stripped-down comedians are sure to make your head explode. And not to worry, gentlemen, this is definitely a parody of male strippers. Some of the performers have what’s called 'Comedy Bodies' - they will make you look fabulous by comparison!

 
Semi-undressed and completely unscripted, The Comic Strippers take off their shirts and take on your suggestions to create a whole new genre of comedy.
