To be fair, people who are dumb enough to think Jeff Dunham is funny would be dumb enough to threaten someone via Twitter.

it's not that dunham is a racist - it's just that he's so goddamned unfunny.

I don't think that's fair. Some of his material is pretty good. A lot of it does suck, though, I'll grant you that.

Dunham belongs where he started, on Vegas doing 10 to 15 minute acts to a constantly rotating audience. When you dial him up to a full hour it just becomes oppressively bad.

You can add me to that list.  Probably because most of his puppets remind me of somebody I know.  Walter could easily be my step-father or grandfather.  I knew a few kids like Peanut in school.  I haven't seen his show in a while, so I don't remember the names of any of the other puppets, but for just about all of them, there's somebody I've known that was just like them.

He's not my favorite comedian, but my daughter loves his act.  We saw him live in Fort Lauderdale last year.

My favorite skit is the one where he's talking about having the deaf portion of his audience and the person signing.  I guess I'm mean that way.  I used to like him more until I found out what a right wing racist he is.

Me too. OMG I just rented a powder blue chevy spark (not on purpose - it was the last thing left on the lot for Easter weekend. I should've known why) and he is dead on with that sketch. We were quoting it every time some idiot who had been cruising along at 63 became in fear of his manhood after being passed by us (meep meep) and immediately raced back in front.

So you used to be a right wing racist until you realized what you liked was a right wing racist. So now you're a right wing rasist-lite. Got it.

And I find the guy funny... if you don't like that, then I'll keel you.

Now who would threaten a ventriloquist?

I think he is funny, I enjoy his banter between his multiple personalities. I figured a lot of these ...."he's not funny" people could relate to Jose with their stick up their butt.
 
he is a lot funnier to me than some of the lame comedians that CC calls funny.  I mean come on Gabriel Iglesias, you can at least try to be funny.
 
2013-04-01 12:06:11 PM
I too enjoy Jeff Dunham.  Walter is the best, because he may as well have been my grandfather.

Actually, he started out doing shows at elementary school Pancake Breakfast events in Texas. Peanut's bits were a lot cleaner then.

he can't do that now, though. so many kids have developed peanut allergies that peanuts are banned in a lot of school cafeterias.

I, too, find Jeff Dunham giggle-worthy.  Did anyone see this past week's episode of The Neighbors?

Let's go see a puppet show!

I don't advocate death threats.   But sometimes I understand them...

I seem to recall his Comedy Central specials from a few years back were particularly lowbrow
 
2013-04-01 01:17:12 PM
The problem is Dunham hasn't updated the material in 15 years.  And even then, a big chunk was stolen from Bill Dana.

For better ventriloquism, see Joey Fatone.
 
2013-04-01 01:17:41 PM
Love him or hate him, you have to admit he is talented.  How many people can be a ventriloquist and run 2 or 3 puppets at the same time while having a conversation with them all in front of an audience?

If it's Walter or Peanut/Jose I'm in.  If it's Achmed or any of the garbage spawned by Achmed I'm out.  It's just not funny, and comes off as morbid and creepy.
 
2013-04-01 01:36:57 PM
He's one of those guys where the first time you see him you think it's funny, but only the first time.

It's like the first time I saw Dane Cooke I thought he was hilarious. After that I quickly grew tired of him.

I feel the same way.  I'm sure it's tough to keep fresh with the puppets, but I think the problem is the redneck audiences.  For whatever reason, they seem more interested in the catch phrases than original material.  See blue collar guys.
 
2013-04-01 01:40:10 PM
I don't know who lames me laugh less: Jeff Dunham or Dane Cook.

So do I. Even went to one of his shows in WV. Although the funniest part wasn't him but was the crowd when he brought Bubba out. He hadn't done Bubba's routine in a while and the crowd had to do the line for him.

I thought Dunham was damned funny when I was in 5th grade.  I just had no idea that he'd be using the same material some twenty years later, with the addition of a sombrero on Jose.  How would I have ever known that he was supposed to be Mexican without that hat?  Thanks, Jeff!

I wonder what happened to the punk puppet that he would dismember.
