Jeff Dunham Headlines Freedom Hall
On Friday, August 19, Freedom Hall in Louisville welcomes the comedic genius of Jeff Dunham. In December of 2015, Dunham and his sidekicks set out on the first leg of their red hot Perfectly Unbalanced tour, selling out hundreds of thousands of seats across North America. Fans came out in masses to find themselves intoxicated by the non-stop hilarity, proving his continued overwhelming popularity.
This fall Jeff and his hilariously devilish partners can be seen hosting the Food Network’s Halloween Baking Championships. The country’s top bakers will compete to create ghoulishly delicious confections. Baking has never been so funny!
Jeff’s dedication to his craft and relentless innovation will be recognized as his one of a kind comedy empire has been nominated to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and in October, the legendary team will play the prestigious Carnegie Hall, one of the most famous venues in the world.
Over the past 46 years Dunham and his world famous characters Walter, Achmed, Bubba J, Peanut, and Jose Jalapeno have garnered numerous accolades, from being named Forbes‘ Celebrity 100 list of Most Powerful Entertainers, as well as setting the Guinness World Record for the “Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-Up Comedy Tour,” to setting the record for viewership on Comedy Central. He has sold more than 7 million DVDs worldwide and has nearly a billion views on YouTube.
Dunham’s seventh comedy special Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood aired on NBC, earning the top spot as the Most-Watched Non-Sports program in primetime viewing in the period. Unhinged in Hollywood is available on DVD/Blu-ray nationwide.
Dunham hand-crafts each character personally from conception to the final coat of paint, then brings them to life on stage. His beloved troupe of sidekicks are: Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Ached the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J, the manic purple creature Peanut, the spicy pepper from south of the border Jose Jalapeno, and Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself.
The famed comedian has literally been all over the map, visiting five continents and 12 countries, including the UK, South Africa, Australia, the Middle East, and Asia, where he continuously performed to sold-out arenas.
Dunham has carved a unique corner in the comedy world that’s as funny as it is popular. The New York Times Magazine declared Jeff Dunham “the most successful comedian working in America.” He has been named Pollstar’s #1 Comedy Tour in North America for three years running as well as their Top Worldwide Tour for two years in a row.
