“Jeff Dunham: All Over The Map” World Tour Begins Nov. 16; Dunham’s Vegas Residency Begins Nov. 28 at Planet Hollywood
Being named the top comedian in North America wasn’t enough for Jeff Dunham and his iconic creations, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Peanut, José Jalapeño, Bubba J and Walter, so the ventriloquist set out in early 2014 to embark on an unprecedented world tour. 

Durham performed across five continents to bring his beloved characters where few American comedians have dared to perform. The result is his highly anticipated stand-up comedy television special, “Jeff Dunham: All Over The Map,” premiering on Comedy Central on Nov. 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT and to Blu-ray, DVD and Download on Nov. 18.

Dunham had to be careful while traveling the globe, especially during appearances in Singapore or United Arab Emirates, where if he told the wrong joke, he risked being handcuffed before ever leaving the stage. While in Malaysia, Dunham was especially warned about incorporating Achmed the Dead Terrorist after their government forbid the infamous character’s presence. How in the world could Jeff do a show without the world’s most beloved terrorist?

Upon his return to the U.S. with nearly 50,000 miles notched, Dunham announced yet another first: after 28 years on the road touring, he will hold residency in Las Vegas’ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino for the aptly titled “Jeff Dunham: Not Playing with a Full Deck.” Celebrating its launch on Nov. 28 with performances running through May 2015, Duham will perform six shows each week (Wednesday-­ Sunday) with two showtimes each Saturday and Sunday, produced by AEG Live and Tate Entertainment Group, Inc.

Time Magazine called him “the most popular comedian in the United States,” and Forbes has him on its Celebrity 100 list of most powerful entertainers three years running, but this international star’s interest in ventriloquism began at the young age of just eight years old. He began performing for crowds at the age of ten, and after graduating from Baylor University, Dunham moved to Los Angeles and became one of the world’s most sensational comedians on the national comedy club circuit. Dunham has frequented both The Tonight Show and Late Show with David Letterman.

Tickets for “Jeff Dunham: Not Playing with a Full Deck” performances scheduled from Friday, Nov. 28, 2014 through Sunday, May 31, 2015 are on sale now by visiting ticketmaster.com or jeffdunham.com, by calling (800) 745-3000, or in person at the Planet Hollywood Box Office.
