Comedian Jim Jefferies brings real life observations to Carnegie Music Hall of Oakland in an October stop.

Comedian Jim Jefferies, star of the Comedy Central series “The Jim Jefferies Show,” and currently appearing in his third Netflix special, “Jim Jefferies: This Is Me Now,” will perform at 8 p.m. Oct. 4 at the Carnegie Music Hall of Oakland, 400 Forbes Ave.

Tickets will be available for $49.50 and $39.50. Venue presale begins at 10 a.m. March 28 with the passcode “JEFFERIES.”

Tickets go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. March 29 at ticketmaster.com.

Known for tackling the news of the day, the Australian takes comedic jabs at politicians and addresses the challenges of being a single father.

He also heads up the weekly podcast series, “The Jim Jefferies Show Podcast,” from Comedy Central’s Podcast Network. Jefferies includes interviews and discussions with a variety of guests discussing current news and politics, as well as providing a more in-depth focus on the topics and opinions featured on the television series — with fewer filters.

Jefferies has released his fifth major stand-up special in seven years, “Freedumb.” The special was his second to air on Netflix, following up on the success of his first, “Jim Jefferies: BARE,” in which he delivered a now iconic routine on guns and gun control in the United States.

Jefferies is creator, writer, producer and star of the FX series “Legit,” and has appeared in the films “Killing Hasselhoff” and “Punching Henry.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
