The upcoming referendum in Ireland to Repeal the 8th amendment is about all anyone can talk about in the country these days, and it seems it's getting the world's attention too.

Australian comedian Jim Jefferies did a ten minute segment on the issue on his Comedy Central show this week where he managed to tackle the issue in an informative yet entertaining way.

Jefferies interviewed comedian and activist Tara Flynn about the referendum, who is actually an old friend of his, while he also talked to Irish anti-abortion campaigner and leader of the National Party Justin Barrett.

While Jefferies was in Ireland for his interview with Tara, he decided to do the interview with Barrett in London for, well, obvious reasons.
