Jim Jefferies Q&A
‘Famous Last Words’ with Aussie stand-up comedian Jim Jefferies…
Last thing you did that made you feel good?
I was sober for more than six months… On my birthday in February this year I fell off the wagon in a big way and, oh my god, did it feel good!
Last thing you’d want to be doing right now?
I’m auditioning for a new movie and want to lose a stone in weight. So I have a personal trainer that I can only describe as evil. Most days I want to punch him. But know I can’t as I’ll be arrested, sued and have no chance at the movie role.
Last night on Earth… What’s your poison?
If I had time, I’d try to get to the Jack Daniels factory in Tennessee and swim in one of their biggest vats of whisky with the occasional Stella Artois chaser.
“Somewhere with lots of alcohol”
Last person you’d want to share a drink with?
Last person would be whoever I was with at the time. I wouldn’t care if I were drinking PROPERLY… If I had to choose it would probably be someone like James Hetfield of Metallica. I’m betting he can drink some and, if I believed in the afterlife, I’d look forward to a good drink with Bon Scott and Richard Pryor. Though it would definitely be downstairs!
Last time you shed a tear and why?
When I thought I had cancer on my ****. Yes I cried! I thought I’d never be able to use it again. Luckily it was just a small bit of cancer and they cut it out. Now I have a sexy scar.
Last refuge… where would you go?
Isn’t that the same question as ‘last night on Earth’? Basically somewhere with lots of Alcohol!
“I’m mad about pinball machines”
Last the course… tips on loot, love & life?
Someone said to Voltaire once: “Life is hard.” Voltaire replied, “Compared to what?”
Last but one… random question: Tell us about something that interests you that nobody else knows about. Like Gaelic football… or porcelain.
I used to be an opera singer but that doesn’t interest me anymore. I’m mad about pinball machines and comics but aren’t most men? I’m not allowed to put eighties porn as I mention that on stage… Atheism?
