Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham Bringing his Comedic Sidekicks to Van Andel Arena
Next month, November of 2012, Jeff Dunham kicks off his all new “Disorderly Conduct” worldwide tour, and it’s coming to Grand Rapids, too.
The new tour brings a brand new show packed with more laughs than ever before. Dunham’s famed troupe of sidekicks are back: Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J, the manic purple creature Peanut, the spicy pepper from south of the border José Jalapeño, and Peanut’s own ventriloquist dummy Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself.
The phenomenal success of Dunham and his cohorts have been driven by his Comedy Central specials, which set records for both ratings and sales. Last September, Dunham’s 4thComedy Central TV special “Controlled Chaos,” premiered to a staggering 8.3 million viewers overall making it the most viewed cable show that night.
Dunham’s autobiography “All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, And Me” debuted in late 2010 and instantly climbed the New York Times best sellers list and achieved a Five-Star Reader Rating on Amazon.
So, Grand Rapids can’t wait for Dunham’s new show. But, wait a bit you’ll have to do. He’ll be at the Van Andel Arena on Sunday, February 10th for a 3 p.m. show. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, October 12th at 10 a.m., and are only $44 dollars.
