TV show description:
Jim Jefferies (playing a fictional version of himself) is an edgy and foul-mouthed stand-up comedian from Australia. He’s in his mid-thirties and is living in Los Angeles, struggling to make his life and career more “legit.” He finds that it’s a difficult, uncomfortable and uphill struggle — every step of the way.
Jim is encouraged in his quest by his neurotic best friend and roommate, Steve Nugent (Dan Bakkedahl) — a cyberlaw library salesman who struggles to stay on his feet in the wake of a divorce.
He’s also supported by Steve’s brother, Billy (DJ Qualls), who suffers from advanced staged Muscular Dystrophy and is confined to a wheelchair.
Other characters include Steve and Billy’s parents, Janice and Walter Nugent (Mindy Sterling and John Ratzenberger), and Billy’s nurse, Ramona (Sonya Eddy).
Episode #26 — “Honesty”
Jim deals with the fall out of being shot by a heckler and considers quitting comedy. Billy goes to a video game tournament.
First aired: May 14, 2014.
