Jeff Dunham is a standup comedian and ventriloquist from Dallas. At the tender age of eight, Dunham began his career path towards ventriloquism when his parents gave him a dummy as a gift. Shortly thereafter he decided he wanted to be a ventriloquist; and so the race began for the man who would become coined “America’s favorite comedian.” As a comedy star Dunham is reported to be one of the top compensated talents, coming in just after Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld. With sold out shows across the US and Europe, Jeff Dunham tickets are worth their weight in gold.
The comedian’s career started in the 1970 when, as a teenager, he would perform at banquets. In the mid-1970s Dunham got his first break into television when he was interviewed by then local reporter Bill O’Reilly. Over the next decade Dunham’s reputation was built up as word of his act got around. His career was on an upward trajectory as he opened for legends such as Bob Hope and George Burns, as well as landed a spot in 1985 on Broadway as a variety act. In the late 1980s Dunham shuffled off to Los Angeles to take his profession to the next level. While honing his skills in various night clubs, Dunham heeded the advice of a fellow comedian and kicked the politically incorrect factor of his act up a bit. After achieving his lifelong dream of appearing on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson,” Dunham pushed harder to be taken from occasional guest appearances and TV commercials to prime time. Shortly after, with a bit of wrangling, Comedy Central became Dunham’s new home. His specials “Arguing with Myself,” “Spark of Insanity” and “Controlled Chaos” have raked in millions in dollars and in garnering a large fan base. The names of characters like Walter, Peanut, José Jalapeño on a Stick, Bubba J, Sweet Daddy Dee, Melvin the Superhero Guy and Achmed the Dead Terrorist have become as widely recognized as Dunham’s own moniker.
