For his second EPIX comedy special, Jim Norton takes self-deprecation and outrageous humor to new extremes. Norton attacks a wide range of topics with the knowledge that some of his remarks will no doubt inspire complaints. In HD.

Foul-mouthed Australian comedian Jim Jefferies puts everything out there in this raunchy EPIX comedy special -- and shows off his skill for skewering sacred cows and virtually everything else with brutal honesty.
Hannibal's a Chicago native, currently living in New York City where he regularly performs and lives alone with no pets. His credits include writing for 30 Rock, SNL and performing in several basements of bars in NYC and Chicago.
Jim Norton, the talented stand-up comedian who had a supporting role on the now defunct HBO comedy LUCKY LOUIE, made an impressive concert debut on HBO with his first comedy concert, JIM NORTON: MONSTER RAIN, in which Norton covers a wide variety of subjects,including some that are rarely broached by stand-up comics and he does it with complete confidence and without fear of repercussion. Norton is a bold and raunchy comic (this special is not for kids)has a way with a comic phrase and has an uncanny ability for using adult language and material for ultimate effect. He covers a broad range of topics including gay sex, terrorism, relationships, televised gambling and takes some marvelous jabs at celebrity obsession, taking stands on Brittany Spears, Don Imus, and Michal Richards among others. Norton keeps the punch lines coming at a quick pace,apologizing for the occasional dud and, thankfully, doesn't spend a lot of time laughing at himself. He has enough confidence in his material and his delivery that he allows us to do the laughing, and believe me, I did and you will. A winner.
