In honour of ventriloquist Jeff Dunham’s upcoming show at Just for Laughs here is a review of one of his shows:
Comedian Jeff Dunham, accompanied by his puppets Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Little Jeff, Bubba J, Walter and Peanut, has worked all over the world playing many a gig for a wide variety of audiences. He is back with a new show and this time he is performing in the weirdest place in world – Hollywood.
Set at the Dolby Theater, Jeff and his puppets seem to have been affected by their surroundings. Each has let tinseltown and the celebrity culture touch them in a different way. The sold out crowd enjoys this totally dysfunctional act.
Despite the fact that it is a grown man playing with puppets this is no kiddie show. Most of the content of Jeff Dunham’s set features adult humour. Expect a lot of off-color stuff that verges on distasteful. He walks the line between funny and disgusting well. Unlike his last few shows this one is funny. A couple of times I laughed so hard I snorted. Might have to rewind a couple of times to catch parts you miss because of laughter. He is just “on” with even his ad-libs working well.
Both original uncensored and family friendly versions
