Laughs from the Abyss
Comedians like Jim Jefferies always seem to be living a life that’s slowly spiraling toward some dark abyss, much like how he recently described the cast of characters on his FXX show Legit. And yet, they have fame, fortune and a massive audience that hang on their every dark, brooding word about life, the universe and everything. It feels like watching a man trying to drown himself with a chain and an anchor only to experience the weird fun of watching him change his mind at the last second and try to wriggle out of it. The Australian comic and star of Legit will deliver his latest observations, presumably created through a haze of whiskey and other assorted adult beverages, at the Majestic Theater, 1925 Elm St., at 8 p.m. Saturday as part of his new 31-city “Day Streaming” Tour. Tickets are available at majestic-theater.com and range from $54 to $132.
Sat., March 8, 8 p.m., 2014
