Jim Jefferies has taken on America’s healthcare crisis in the lastest edition of his Comedy Central show

He joked that renaming the American Healthcare Act as the Better Care Reconciliation Act was ‘like when Kentucky Fried Chicken became KFC. They are both still exactly the same thing.And they both involve old white men from Kentucky getting rick off your heart attack.’

The Jim Jefferies Show airs on Fridays at 11:30pm on Comedy Central UK.
