FX premiered the first episode of Jim Jefferies' new comedy series Legit, which stars the Australian comedian as an Australian comedian living in Los Angeles and determined to legitimize his life. For those of you who missed it, the full episode is now online to watch in its entirety. Check it out ahead!
Joining Jefferies in the series are Dan Bakkedahl, playing JIm's best friend Steve, and D.J. Qualls, Steve's wheelchair-bound brother Billy. As you'll see in the first episode, Jim's the kind of guy who complains about how high-maintenance a terminally ill woman might be as a girlfriend, but he's also the kind of guy who goes out of his way to help someone in need, like helping Billy have sex by taking him to a Vegas brothel…
As we mentioned in our review, Legit is crass and raunchy and just the right amount of funny, though I expect it'll be a bit much for some. But those who are already used to tuning in to FX's Thursday night comedy line-up are likely to appreciate it. There's also a sort of sweet side to the series that kind of sneaks up on you. If you liked the first episode, be sure to tune in for more because - based on the first few episodes - it only gets better.
Legit airs Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET on FX.
