Jeff Dunham is consistently setting and breaking records and conquering every realm he enters.
He was voted “Funniest Male Stand-Up Comic” at the American Comedy Awards and became the only person to ever win the prestigious “Ventriloquist of the Year” award twice.
The secret to Dunham’s comedic genius and unprecedented success is found in the believably real personalities he has created that are his partners in hilarity: Walter the grumpy retiree; the beer-swilling, NASCAR loving and resolutely redneck Bubba J; the furry and manic Peanut; Jose Jalapeno, the spicy pepper from south of the border; and the bumbling skeletal Achmed the Dead Terrorist.
Dunham has become a part of popular culture, and such character catchphrases as Achmed’s “Silence! I Keel You!” and Jose Jalapeno’s “On A Steek!” are embedded in the contemporary lexicon.
