Storyline

As straight man to some of the most hilarious pint-sized partners in show business, Jeff Dunham has become one of the most successful touring comics ever and has amassed legions of loyal fans! At the American Comedy Awards, Dunham was voted Male Stand-Up Comic of the Year, an honor shared with the likes of Jerry Seinfeld, Jeff Foxworthy and Robin Williams. Thousands of sold-out theater and comedy club performances, his own top-rated special on Comedy Central and countless TV guest spots - including numerous Tonight Show appearances (with both Leno and Carson) - have won him accolades and success. The reason why is very simple: he and his buddies are funny as hell. Oh, and by the way... Jeff Dunham is a ventriloquist. Written by Anonymous

Dunham proves that the paying crowd members are the biggest dummies of all.
9 February 2013 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

The fact that this is so highly rated is quite depressing. Jeff Dunham has improved over the years, before getting worse, but here he's just poor on pretty much every level.

I thought that Dunham had always lucked out when he decided to make a puppet and call it Achmed The Dead Terrorist but this 2006 show, with no Achmed in sight, shows that audiences were already lapping up his unfunny, and often racist, nonsense.

Some of it would be more acceptable if it was actually funny or done with skill, but this is a ventriloquist who can hardly perform ventriloquism for half of his act. Think I'm being too harsh? Watch the show and take note of how many times he just moves his lips normally and speaks as the puppet "talks". I saw better work on occasion from Keith Harris.

Anyway, there are some laughs, especially when Walter is given his time on stage, but the whole thing is soured by the stuff that is so bad. How this guy ever became so successful is a mystery to me.
