Jim Jefferies (born Geoff Nugent) is an Australian stand-up comedian, actor and writer. Born in Sydney, New South Wales Australia, Jefferies attended St Ives High School. While living in Manchester, England, Jefferies, his girlfriend, and his roommate Steve Hughes were victims of a violent burglary. Two intruders broke into their house in Whalley Range while they were home. Jefferies was hit over the head with a machete and his girlfriend was tied up while the intruders robbed the house. They stole Jefferies' car, but they were soon apprehended by the police because they were caught speeding. The burglars received a 12-year sentence for grievous bodily harm, aggravated assault, attempted rape, car theft, and possession of a Class-A substance.
