Comedy Central launches UK DVD label, signs Jim Jefferies

Jim JefferiesComedy Central’s British arm has formed their own DVD label, which will continue to expand Comedy Central’s relatively new presence overseas by signing and promoting UK comedians.

The first two DVDs, Jim Jefferies’ Alcoholocaust and Stewart Lee’s If You Prefer a Milder Comedian, Please Ask for One will be released in the fall, Chortle reports. Jefferies has already made a sizable dent on the stateside comedy scene, having toured the country as well as repeatedly appearing on Sirius XM’s Opie and Anthony Show. Lee, a long-respected British act, has not yet made a big name for himself here.

Comedy Central’s UK label plans on signing three more comedians in the next year.

After the jump, get a taste of Lee’s comedy. Enjoy!
