JIM JEFFERIES likes Philadelphia: "I think the cheesesteak's an overrated food, but it's a cracking place."
The Australian comedian, whose new series, "Legit" (10:30 p.m. Thursdays, FX) launched Jan. 17, will play the Trocadero for the third time on Saturday.
Speaking Tuesday from Los Angeles, where he's been fighting a bad cold - he insists he'll be better by the time he arrives for the sold-out show - he quickly backpedaled on the sandwich slur. His objection, he said, wasn't to the cheesesteak but to any town's taking "ownership of putting cheese and meat together."
"It's like saying you decided to put mushrooms with chicken," he complained.
