In Legit, Jim Jefferies is 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 Steve (Dan Bakkedahl), his neurotic best friend and roommate, a cyber-law library salesman who struggles to stay on his feet in the wake of a divorce, and Steve's brother, Billy (DJ Qualls), 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
The first episode was all about getting Billy (DJ Qualls) laid. With Billy being paralyzed from the neck down, I was kind of laughing and cringing at the same time. Like when they're in the car getting high and Jim is behind Billy and his wheelchair and moving his arms around like he's playing air guitar, or "wanking" or slapping himself. I laughed but was like "this is so wrong!" I did love when Billy (good and high) giggles "I can't feel my legs!" And laughed when they were in his room and pissed Billy off - he turned his head and buried his face in the pillow as best he could to "leave the room". Then his mom walks in, sees him laying there and barks "Why did he leave the room?!!"
I love DJ Qualls, and thought he was great acting with just his face. I don't know anything about Jim Jeffries, but I'm definitely watching again.
