Famed Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham Announces 60-City Passively Aggressive Tour: Exclusive
Jeff Dunham is bringing his cast of characters on the road this fall through spring 2018 as America’s favorite ventriloquist tours North America on his 60-city Passively Aggressive tour. Tickets go on sale beginning Monday, Sept. 18 on his site.
Dunham just released his latest standup special, Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster, on Netflix this month. The special features Dunham along with his ill-behaved and slightly demented posse of characters — Walter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, and Peanut — for a gleeful skewering of family and politics. Durham also plans to add a new character to his show, putting the ‘relative’ in Relative Disaster.
Dunham holds the Guinness World Record holder for Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-up Comedy Tour, and has more than a million YouTube subscribers and billion views. He's taped comedy specials for Comedy Central and NBC and his 2015 standup special, Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood, debuted on NBC Primetime in the fall ranked as the time period’s top non-sports program on the Big 4 in every key measure.
After taping Relative Disaster in Dublin, Ireland, Dunham returned to the U.S. and has continued selling out arenas across the country on his Perfectly Unbalanced Tour.
Dunham’s contribution to the world of show business will be recognized on Sept. 21 when he receives a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, commemorating over two decades of superstardom.
“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,' Durham tells Billboard in a statement. "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.”
