Series: Legit
Left to right: Steve, Billy, and Jim.
Legit is a comedy series premiering on FX in 2013.

Jim Jefferies plays Jim Jefferies, a bit of a scumbag trying to follow his mother's wish, and become more legit. To do so, he decides to come stateside and assist Billy, a man with muscular dystrophy, and the brother of his other friend, Steve.


Legit provides examples of the following tropes:

  • The Alcoholic: Steve has become a major one in season 2.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Jim's parents. An overweight attention whore, and a womanizing philanderer.
  • Awesome Aussie: Jim.
  • Black Comedy Rape: The source of Jim's troubles in "Misunderstanding". He didn't do it of course, but the joke still doesn't fly over with anyone.
    • And the joke continues to haunt him in season 2.
  • Chocolate Baby: The eventual outcome of Wendy the hookers baby in "Fatherhood"
  • Courtroom Episode: "Justice"
  • Distracted by the Sexy: The Judge in "Justice" by Jim's lady friend.
  • Foreign Exchange Student: How Jim came to America. He wanted to get away from his family.
  • Gag Penis: Billy is apparently very well-endowed downstairs.
  • Handicapped Badass: Throughout "Justice" Billy fearlessly snaps off at the two armed men robbing the house. His disease has apparently taken away his fear of death.
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Wendy from "Fatherhood". Woman is sweet as can be.
  • Hypocrite: Jim calls an English guy on the plane "a Pommy cock" and then accuses an American passenger of racism when he's called a limey, and points out that that's the British not Australians. (A 'Pom' or 'Pommy' is a light slur used against the English in Australia, generally in jest, and isn't taken offense to.)
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Jim's a prick, but he's a nice guy deep down.
  • Kavorka Man: Jim has no problems getting laid, despite being a dickish slob.
  • My Beloved Smother: Janice. Big time.
  • N-Word Privileges: What reveals Jim's dream woman as a racist at the end of "Death".
  • Sex as a Rite-of-Passage: The plot of the first episode.
  • Show Within a Show: "Red Moon Over Odessa". The movie role Jim's rape joke from "Misunderstanding" cost him. It's getting rave reviews to just annoy him further.
  • Tuckerization: Billy and Steve's last name(Nugent) is Jim Jefferies actual last name(Geoff James Nugent)
  • Unsettling Gender-Reveal Steve is not pleased when he finds out Mary Fulcher, the girl he lost his virginity to, became Mark Fulcher. Though through a combination of anger and liquor, he gets over it.
    Steve: I am proud that I hit that!
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Jim's Ukrainian accent in "Misunderstanding". General consensus is that it sounds more French than anything.
