Foul-mouthed Australian comedian Jim Jefferies puts everything out there in this raunchy EPIX comedy special -- and shows off his skill for skewering sacred cows and virtually everything else with brutal honesty.

The air is fast escaping from the funny balloon...
Granted I haven't really been a fanboy here, but I have watched some of Jim Jefferies previous shows, and yes I have been quite amused by those. So when I found this 2018 "This Is Me Now" on Netflix, I did of course give it a chance.
Well, I must start right off by saying that the spark is fading. This show was nowhere near his previous shows in intensity, in humor, in stage presence, or even in enjoyment. It felt like he was running on auto-pilot and was doing a half-hearted attempt at delivering jokes based on material which wasn't all that funny to begin with.
I was only laughing twice throughout the entire show. Those times was during the scene with the son and the toilet, and the second time was with the Al Pacino segment.
Aside from that, then this was a very bland experience. And I must admit that I was actually sitting with my phone and playing Uno on Facebook during the show, and just listening to him stumble about on the stage. Yeah, the show had that little appeal.
