ventriloquist Jeff Dunham will bring his "suitcase
posse" to EAA’s stage at 9 p.m. Wednesday.
If you haven’t seen
comedian Jeff Dunham perform in the past several years, where have you
been? The master ventriloquist, featuring his hilarious "suitcase
posse" cast of characters, has two top-selling DVDs (Arguing
With Myself and Spark of Insanity have reached combined sales
of 2 million), numerous top-rated Comedy Central specials, sold-out
national tours, and YouTube clips that have generated an estimated 100
million hits. Tonight Show host Jay Leno calls Dunham "the best
Dunham is also a
homebuilder and pilot of RotorWay helicopters. On Wednesday evening, he
brings his hilarious performance to AirVenture’s Theater in the Woods,
presented by RotorWay International.
Dunham never travels
alone. Fans of all ages love his fast-talking and socially reckless
"posse." Probably most recognizable to fans is Walter, the
elderly, outspoken, and politically incorrect curmudgeon who spouts his
views on the foibles of marriage, politics, and anything else that needs
skewering in American culture.
Next is Peanut, a
frenzied, loudmouthed, purple, lovable imp, who Walter describes as a
"Muppet on crack."
Then there’s José
Jalapeño, a chili pepper who teamed up with Dunham after a pogo
accident in his home country of Mexico that permanently placed him
"on a STEEK!" Lowest on the I.Q. chart is Bubba J, simply
white trash and trailer park.
character to join the act is Achmed the Dead Terrorist, who thankfully
has failed in multiple suicidal tasks, and has allowed Dunham to throw a
spitball directly in the eye of political correctness.
Don’t miss this
outrageously funny performance Wednesday, scheduled to start at 9 p.m.
