Dunham and his comedic sidekicks recently taped a new Comedy Central one hour special entitled “Minding the Monsters,” scheduled to be broadcast on Oct. 7th with a DVD available on Oct. 9th. The new show is the fifth in a string of record breaking specials. “Minding the Monsters” takes its audience into the ultimate haunted house where you can see Walter transform into something grumpier than he already is, watch Bubba J rise from the dead, meet Peanut’s alter ego, The Purple Avenger of the Night, and his spicy sidekick, and witness Achmed literally dressed to kill in an outfit that would terrify the most terrifying terrorist!
The phenomenal international success of Dunham and his cohorts have been driven by his Comedy Central specials, which set global records for both ratings and sales. Last September, Dunham’s 4th Comedy Central TV special “Controlled Chaos,” premiered to a staggering 8.3 million viewers overall making it the most viewed cable show that night. The global TV event enjoyed a never-before simultaneous same day worldwide debut in a dozen countries. Dunham continued to break ratings records at the end of 2011, when The Bio Channel’s premiere of Jeff Dunham: “Birth of a Dummy” became the network’s top rated telecast ever. No wonder The New York Times Magazine declared Jeff Dunham “the most successful comedian working in America.” Dunham was recently named Pollstar’s #1 Comedy Tour in North America for three years running as well as their Top Worldwide Tour for the third year in a row. In addition, Dunham’s undeniable talent placed him on Forbes magazine’s Celebrity 100 roster of most powerful entertainers for the past four years.
Dunham’s autobiography “All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, And Me” debuted in late 2010 and instantly climbed the New York Times best sellers list and achieved a Five-Star Reader Rating on Amazon. The book candidly recounts Dunham’s amazing rise to international fame beginning with his first public performances for a mere $5 a show as a fourth-grader in his Dallas, Texas hometown, followed by years of intensive touring on the comedy club circuit from his college years into adulthood to becoming an international comedy phenomenon.
The amazing rise of Jeff Dunham continues apace, with 2012 having seen Jeff continue to pack arena-sized venues. He made his fourth trip to Europe this spring, stopping in the U.K., Germany, and Belgium. Dunham also completed his second trip to South Africa, playing to sold out crowds at some of the nation’s biggest venues in Cape Town, Durban, Sun City and Johannesburg, and recently embarked on his second trip to Australia.
