Regarded as one of the fastest rising stars in the comedy world, his brash, confrontational style has made him one of the most sought after comics on the world stage. Jim gets away with jokes that most comedians wouldn't touch due to his ability to both charm and offend the crowd in equal measures. The Herald wrote of Jim, "The Australian doesn't care who he offends, badgering those who resist until they capitulate and join in the laughter, hard hitting and expertly delivered".
Jim returned to the Montreal "Just for Laughs" Comedy Festival this year, wowing audiences with his performances in the Nasty Show, and most notably, his one-hour solo show, fittingly titled "The Second Coming." Jim first appeared at the "Just for Laughs" Festival in 2005, where he performed in the highly acclaimed "Nasty Show," and garnered one of the biggest press articles at the festival. In 2006, Jim made his return to the Edinburgh Festival where "The Second Coming" sold out the entire run.
