Netflix recently released another comedy special with Jim Jefferies titled Jim Jefferies: Intolerant. It is the comedian’s fourth original stand-up special for Netflix and it won’t be wrong to say that it is not a dream collaboration redone. It is intolerable and the question is does he sh*t himself? Well, yes he does.
Jim Jefferies: Intolerant of Everything and Everyone!
“Here’s a thing about millennials, you’re the worst people to ever exist“– Jim Jefferies
The main theme of the stand-up is Jim Jefferies’ food problem — he’s lactose intolerant, yes. He ironically tells the audience that cheese and ice cream happen to be one of his favourites, meaning he’s legit f*cked.
The initial part of the standup made me think that Jefferies is commenting on homophobic and transphobic rural citizens is a subtle way (people like his father). He even manages to slightly do that by balancing jokes in the same context.
Jefferies explains to his audience a date he went on at a fancy, Michelin-star restaurant, for the entire long routine but the question he keeps as suspense till the very end is — did Jim Jefferies sh*t himself at the end of the date? It changes from talking about the date to calling Italian-American c*nts for their accent for a huge part of the set real quick!
For almost the whole set the 42-years old comedian successfully rants about people – for being millennials, for being woke, for being allergic to peanuts, for being French, for calling cheese Fromage and for a number of reasons that keep getting weird.
It’s still all okay and understandable till the time you try to add misogynist jokes and be equally proud of them! And criticize the audiences for pointing you out. Well, Jim, if you made a misogynist joke years back it’ll still be a misogynist joke no matter how you portray it. Yes, people are oversensitive on jokes because it is wrong.
Stream It or Skip It
SKIP IT! Jim Jefferies: Intolerant also manages to validate fat-shaming saying that to fat-shame people is to force them to stay fit (Whaaaaa..t!!) Jefferies tried to convince people with his not-so-good set this time and you might as well just not watch it. The only thing you can take away from this standup is the ease with which he switches between his jokes.
