Comedian Jeff Dunham to perform Wednesday

Master ventriloquist Jeff Dunham will bring his "suitcase posse" to EAA’s stage at 9 p.m. Wednesday.

If you haven’t seen comedian Jeff Dunham perform in the past several years, where have you been? The master ventriloquist, featuring his hilarious "suitcase posse" cast of characters, has two top-selling DVDs (Arguing With Myself and Spark of Insanity have reached combined sales of 2 million), numerous top-rated Comedy Central specials, sold-out national tours, and YouTube clips that have generated an estimated 100 million hits. Tonight Show host Jay Leno calls Dunham "the best there is."

Dunham is also a homebuilder and pilot of RotorWay helicopters. On Wednesday evening, he brings his hilarious performance to AirVenture’s Theater in the Woods, presented by RotorWay International.

Dunham never travels alone. Fans of all ages love his fast-talking and socially reckless "posse." Probably most recognizable to fans is Walter, the elderly, outspoken, and politically incorrect curmudgeon who spouts his views on the foibles of marriage, politics, and anything else that needs skewering in American culture.

Next is Peanut, a frenzied, loudmouthed, purple, lovable imp, who Walter describes as a "Muppet on crack."

Then there’s José Jalapeño, a chili pepper who teamed up with Dunham after a pogo accident in his home country of Mexico that permanently placed him "on a STEEK!" Lowest on the I.Q. chart is Bubba J, simply white trash and trailer park.

Dunham’s latest character to join the act is Achmed the Dead Terrorist, who thankfully has failed in multiple suicidal tasks, and has allowed Dunham to throw a spitball directly in the eye of political correctness.

Don’t miss this outrageously funny performance Wednesday, scheduled to start at 9 p.m.
