Jim Jefferies (or Jeffries if you're not American) has found success in the UK and the US, but perhaps his greatest success was found in an Australian brothel. He'll tell Marc that story and he'll recall the time he got punched in the head repeatedly by an audience member. Also, Marc writes an opera.

    It was great to here a fellow Aussie, with the accompanying accent on the podcast! Thanks for the great interview Mark.

    I'm with Cat Admirer - i would also love to hear a meeting between Marc and Daniel Kitson. Daniel is all about integrity and i think Marc is as well, it would be an interesting interview!

    Also - what about RICH HALL? Another American who has done well in the UK. Rich has his alter-ego Otis Lee Crenshaw and band - so they could talk about musical influences etc . . . . . . . . .

    Two shows ago I wondered why Daniel Kitson's name has never been mentioned, and here he is mentioned. By Jim. So I can't say thanks for reading and answering my comment. But it's good to know that you know Kitson, and you're just quiet about it. What an interview that would be, if you could somehow corner that guy for an hour and not hate each other by show's end. Let's action that.

    Nice to see our fellow Aussies getting a shake on the WTF podcast. Will check Jim out when he does Sydney in the coming weeks.

    I wonder how many people go up to comedians these days and say "hey I'm here cuz I enjoyed hearing you on Maron's WTF podcast". Informal comedian survey pls tks

    ". . . . oh yeah, thats what we do - i find mentally retarded people and take them to prostitutes . . . ."

    Another great interview Maron. Jim is a cool stand-up who is crude but still intelligent, i liked his album 'Hellbound' alot.

    Many people might find his stories 'Ick' (see first comment above) - well thats fine, comics like him and Stanhope aren't for everyone.

    If it gets a little too 'real' for those people they can enjoy acts like Michael McIntyre, who for the record (in my opinion) is mediocre pap. A safe cheeky-chappy who doesn't challenge or offend anything.

    Alot of us prefer material a bit more raw and uncensored! Thats what i love about stand-up, the variety on offer - something for everyone!!

    I really enjoyed this episode. In fact, I had to pause it at least three times to avoid disturbing my cube mates with laughter. When I shared the segment regarding the brothel with my wife, she mentioned a somewhat recent episode of Taboo that had a similar focus. We're all for it - buyers and sellers unite.

    Great podcast. Funny and moving story from Jim about taking his disabled mate Dan to a brothel. You both pondered on setting up a service or charity to meet this kind of need, well its already been done! I saw a documentary about this subject on British TV, probably 10+ years ago. Take a look at this more recent article from Times Online for a mature look at this issue for both sexes:-

    Ick.

    And "what's the male-to-female ratio among listeners?" is what I find myself wondering.

    Just ICK.
