On Wednesday, March 9th, Jeff Dunham, the wildly popular and internationally acclaimed comic/ventriloquist is loading up the bus along with his cast of characters and heading out to the Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, UT on their “Perfectly Unbalanced” International Tour.
November of 2014 Dunham and his sidekicks began their six month residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. By overwhelming popular demand “Not Playing with a Full Deck” was held over through October 2015. Recently Dunham made the Guinness World Records for the “Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-Up Comedy Tour.”
Dunham shot his seventh comedy special “Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood” during a two-night stand at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles with Special Guest Brad Paisley. The special premiered on NBC September 17th to a staggering 7 million viewers, roughly 5% of US televisions tuned in. Comedy Central gave “Unhinged in Hollywood” its cable television premiere on November 1st. The original airing garnered over 1.8M total viewers, topping its lead-in by triple digit percentages across the board, and ranked as the highest rated comedy special of the year for the network. “Unhinged in Hollywood” is now available on DVD/Blu-ray nationwide.
Dunham hand-crafts each character personally from conception to the final coat of paint then brings them to life on stage. His beloved troupe of sidekicks are: Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Ached the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J, the manic purple creature Peanut, the spicy pepper from south of the border Jose Jalapeno and Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself.
The famed comedian has literally been all over the map, visiting five continents and twelve countries including the UK, South Africa, Australia, the Middle East, and Asia where he continuously performed to sold-out arenas.
Dunham has carved a unique corner in the comedy world that’s as funny as it is popular.
