Episode Synopsis: Jim Jefferies, taking his first baby steps toward legitimacy and trying to do a good deed, treats his close friend Billy — suffering from advanced stage Muscular Dystrophy and confined to a wheelchair — to a debauchery filled road trip to a whorehouse in Las Vegas.
Show Summary: In the new FX original comedy series, Legit, Jim Jefferies stars as an edgy, foul-mouthed, stand-up comedian from Australia, in his mid-30s and living in LA, struggling to make his life and career more “legit,” only to find it a difficult, uncomfortable uphill struggle every step of the way.
Jim is encouraged in his quest by his neurotic best friend and roommate, Steve, a cyberlaw library salesman who struggles to stay on his feet in the wake of a divorce, and Steve’s brother, Billy, who suffers from advanced staged Muscular Dystrophy and is confined to a wheelchair. Legit stars Jim Jefferies as ‘Jim,’ Dan Bakkedahl as ‘Steve’ and DJ Qualls as ‘Billy.’ Peter O’Fallon, Jim Jefferies, Rick Cleveland and Lisa Blum serve as Executive Producers. The series is produced by FX Productions. FX has ordered 13 episodes of Legit that will air Thursdays at 10:30pm.
