R-Rated Raunch at Hilarites

When: Thu., Aug. 4 2011

Consider yourself warned: Australian comedian Jim Jeffries' humor is not for the faint of heart. He's vulgar, raunchy, controversial — and absolutely hilarious. His brutal takes on religion, drinking, and sex have earned him comparisons to George Carlin — and helped him sell out shows worldwide, including the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Canada and the Edinburgh Comedy Festival in Scotland. Americans may know him best from his comedy specials: HBO's Jim Jeffries: I Swear to God and Showtime's Alcoholocaust. And you can get to know him better still during this weekend's string of appearances at Hilarities. The R-rated shows promise to reveal Jeffries at his worst — which also happens to be his best. Tix to tonight's 8 p.m. show are $18. Snag them online at or call 216-736-4242. Hilarities is at 2035 East Fourth St. — Max Hayden
