Jeff Dunham Tickets are Insults for Everyone

Jeff Dunham is back on tour following the debut of “Control Chaos” on Comedy Central on September 25, 2011. The ventriloquist and comedian can claim another success with 5.5 million people tuning in to watch his program. However, like most comedians, he earns his living on the road. So he has launched a tour that will take him throughout the United States and Canada until deep into 2012.

The comedy special introduced two characters, Achmed Junior, Achmed the Dead Terrorists homosexual son, and Little Jeff, a pint-sized version of himself. They will be making appearances on his Controlled Chaos live tour, giving him a new perspective to speak from, especially given his recent divorce.

In fact, like him or hate him, Jeff Dunham tickets are standup comedy tickets to enjoy a roasting of every soul in the building. Dunham takes aim at white trash with Bubba J, black pimps with Sweet Daddy Dee, Hispanics with Jose Jalapeno on a Stick, Muslims and those of Middle Eastern descent with Achmed the Dead Terrorists, and now himself with Little Jeff.

Those who despise his act also need to remember that this is the same comedian who appeared on an episode of 30 Rock in which he portrays a Southern comedian who proves that people are the same no matter where they live. There are smart people, dumb people, jerks, saints, and everything in between. This is a man who certainly has a full grasp on what he is doing.

In a recent interview with, Dunham that he is not out to offend people, but that is something he has to do every show to make sure his comedy is pushing the envelope just enough. In the same article, he tells the interviewer he is going to start with himself if he is going to make fun of other people too.

He is an equal opportunity comedian who just hopes his audience has a sense of humor once their sub-group has its turn on stage.

Who Would Ever Have Thought a Ventriloquist Would be Funny

It is no secret that geek chic has taken over. Shows like Chuck and sassy smart girls in glasses are all the rage. It is also no mystery that the ‘80s are back. Excess is king, Madonna is back on tour, and the Celtics have played the Lakers in the finals.

It only makes sense that something would develop in comedy that would combine the two. That combination is Jeff Dunham. Apparently this guy has been around since the ‘80s and got the nod from legend maker Johnny Carson in 1990. He is a comedian and a ventriloquist. I have only known ventriloquism as a something misguided children take up in desperate pleas for attention that most often ends up with the doll broken and the kid beat up.

While I am sure Dunham was beat up as a child and a young adult and a 20-something, I think he has enough imagination and a sense of humor, he has become a sensation. Comedy Central crowned him the number one comedian on Stand-Up Showdown and he has been named the Funniest Male Stand-Up Comic by the American Comedy Awards. I watched a few of his acts on YouTube and was actually pretty impressed.

I like the traditional straight-man, dead terrorist gag he can pull off without being too offensive because, well the terrorist is dead…and a puppet.
