July 27, 2009 - Oshkosh, Wisconsin - A record crowd estimated at 10,000 people turned out to see comedian and homebuilder Jeff Dunham perform at AirVenture last year courtesy of RotorWay International, and he’ll return for another show on Saturday evening, August 1, thanks again to RotorWay.

Thousands of comedy fans have enjoyed Dunham’s performances in concert, plus tens of millions more have laughed through his DVD, online, and television appearances. But in Oshkosh, Dunham will be performing among kindred spirits—an audience of aviation enthusiasts

 DVDs of Dunham’s performances have sold more than two million copies in little more than three years, and most of his national tour dates have sold out well in advance. His video clips on YouTube have drawn an estimated 100 million views worldwide, and no less an authority than former Tonight Show host Jay Leno has called Dunham “the best there is.” In late 2008, Dunham’s Christmas special was a huge hit on Comedy Central. He had previewed some of that material for last year’s AirVenture audience.

“As we all discovered in 2008, Jeff Dunham’s comedy and his own aviation interest are a perfect fit for the thousands of flying enthusiasts at EAA AirVenture,” said Grant Norwitz, chief executive officer of RotorWay International. “Jeff has long been a member of the RotorWay builders’ family, and he was eager to get back to Oshkosh in 2009. We’re proud to bring him and his colorful cast of characters such as Walter, Peanut, Achmed, and others back to ‘aviation’s family reunion’ at Oshkosh this year!”

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
