Jim Jefferies the thirty five years old Australian comedian will perform this Friday at Club Nokia. Jefferies made headlines around the globe this year with his most recent tour self-titled simply Jim Jefferies.  

Jim likes to  take on topics such as fatherhood, love and education as well as his favorites: religion, porn and politics.

He first achieved international popularity after he was attacked onstage while performing at the Manchester Comedy Store. At one time, Jefferies even incorporated the incident (and its video recording) into his act. This can be seen on his 2008 UK home video release, Contraband. He is now well known in the USA after his popular debut stand-up special on HBO.

Jefferies has performed at numerous festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe, Montreal Comedy Festival (Just for Laughs), South African Comedy Festival Cape Town, Reading and Leeds Festivals and the Glastonbury Festival.

He has also appeared on BBC Television shows, such as Never Mind…

Each year, the Super Bowl enthralls Americans. So, 24/7 Wall St. wanted to pull together some factoids about Super Bowl XLVII.
The game will be a boon to New Orleans, but the raw dollars spent elsewhere in the United States for the big game by the public, by teams and by companies come to an astronomical sum when you start to add them up.
