Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham on 60-city ‘Passively Aggressive’ tour

Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham is bringing his dummies on the road, as he tours North America on a 60-city ‘Passively Aggressive’ tour through spring 2018.  Tickets on sale at

Dunham released his last stand-up special, Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster, on Netflix in September 2017.  The special, filmed in Dublin Ireland, features Dunham along with his dummy characters for a ‘gleeful skewering of family and politics.’

Dunham and dummies Walter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, and Peanut consider what a new member to their family could mean, putting the ‘relative’ in Relative Disaster.

Dunham, a Guinness World Record holder for “Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-up Comedy Tour,” has spent years touring.

He has over one million YouTube subscribers, amassing over a billion views.

He had high viewership with comedy specials on Comedy Central and NBC. His 2015 stand-up special, Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood, debuted on NBC Primetime and ranked as the time period’s top non-sports program on the Big 4.

 Dunham received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

He said, “When I moved to Los Angeles in 1988 with a car full of clothes and a couple of dummies, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that one day I would be tripping over my own star on the Walk of Fame.  It’s truly fantastic and a great honor; I just hope it’s not in front of an adult store.  Okay, actually, that would be hilarious.”
