Australian-American comedian Jim Jefferies has come a long way from American sitcom Legit and the late-night show The Jim Jefferies Show. Jefferies, whose recent special Netflix special Intolerant came out in July 2020has the full support of his wife and ex-girlfriend in his professional voyage.

Jefferies’ Support Pillars

Coinciding with the famous quote, “Behind every successful man, there is a woman,” Jefferies has two women—his wife, Tasie Lawrence, and his ex-girlfriend Kate Luyben—to support him unconditionally as he scales the ladder of success.

However, this doesn’t imply that the comedian and his ex-girlfriend are estranged. They still share a cordial bond and are supportive of one another.

Married to Best Friend Tasie Lawrence
