Jamie Stubbs reviews Jim Jefferies: Alcoholocaust.
Andrew Dipper caught up with Australian comic Jim Jefferies. He’s a nice guy.
From the moment the camera roles, the measured anarchism of Jim Jefferies is evident. On the surface Jefferies is a misogynistic comic who acts without thought or care – but behind the overtly masculine persona that underpins his ‘Alcoholocaust’ show is a genius with a wealth of brave, superbly delivered material. His show is about so much more than giving up drinking.
The newly refurbished Playhouse is centred in right in the middle of Whitley Bay’s culture section just off Spanish city and the coast, the theatre itself is a lovely, spacious, modern venue seating around 600 and has hosted many comedy nights since its rebirth from newer, more cutting edge and thought provoking comics such as Chris Addison and Jim Jefferies to old favourites such as Jethro and Ken Dodd.
