Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham coming to Harrah’s Cherokee

Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham’s television specials and series are some of the highest rated programs in Comedy Central history and his DVD sales have reached 7 million. His videos have received a half a billion views on YouTube, and his live concerts have become mega-events played in front of sold-out arenas worldwide. Dunham has, of course, plenty of help on-stage with his entourage of signature characters who challenge and chastise his every sentence. There’s Walter, the grumpy retiree; the beer-swilling, NASCAR-loving and resolutely red neck Bubba J; the furry and manic Peanut; José Jalapeño, the spicy pepper from South of the border; the bumbling skeletal Achmed the Dead Terrorist; the almost as dead long-lost son of Achmed, AJ; and Peanut’s own ventriloquist dummy: Little Jeff. They may have all been conceived and hand crafted by Dunham, but his characters, who are anything but dummies, have now taken on a life of their own, each with their own legion of fans.  www.jeffdunham.com
