Jeff Dunham Seriously!? Returns to the Embassy Theatre TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY, MAY 6
Fort Wayne, Ind. (May 6, 2022) – The Embassy Theatre is pleased to bring back Jeff Dunham to the historic Embassy Theatre stage on Thursday, September 22, 2022 at 7 p.m. Member pre-sale will begin Thursday, May 5 at 10 a.m., and tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, May 6 at 10 a.m. This show is presented by Tate Entertainment Group.
At the age of 9 Jeff Dunham received a toy ventriloquist dummy for Christmas and was soon charming and disarming classmates, appearing at banquets, doing TV commercials and was on his way to national appearances while still in high school. Later came the comedy club circuit, larger venues, and ultimately sold-out concerts in the same arenas as Taylor Swift and Metallica. Dunham holds the Guinness Book of World Records record for ‘Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-Up Comedy Tour.’
Slate called him “America’s favorite comedian,” and TIME cited the comedian as “a dressed-down, more digestible version of Don Rickles with multiple personality disorder.” Dunham is able to say the things you-wouldn’t-dare with his cadre of characters who tap into almost every aspect of American life (cranky old Walter, hyperactive Peanut, Jose the Jalapeno on a Stick, the redneck cliché Bubba J, the befuddled Achmed the Dead Terrorist and Url the basement dwelling social media addict). He allows each to speak their mind, regardless of how much they embarrass their co-star in the process.
Dunham has nine record-breaking comedy specials to his credit, and with 3.6 million YouTube subscribers and 11 million Facebook followers, he has amassed over a billion views and sold over seven million DVDs. In addition, he has been named Billboard’s Top Comedy Tour three years in a row and has been profiled in virtually every publication, platform and late-night variety show, including The Los Angeles Times, ABC’s Nightline, Variety, The New York Times, People, The Today Show, The Tonight Show and Late Night with David Letterman.
After a long pandemic pause, Dunham and his characters are back on the road, ready to provide a much-needed dose of absurdity. For more information on Dunham, visit https://www.jeffdunham.com/.
