Nix Nightbird: Danger Avoid Death: Smashed Hat: Oh thank God, I thought that was going to be something about Jeff Dunham.

Jeff and Sweet Daddy Dee? The weakest part of his act.

His whole act is weak. It's just Jeff making racist, bigoted, unpopular comments and "jokes" come from the mouth of a racist, stereotyping puppet, and then acting surprised and shocked at what the "puppet" said.

I loathe Jeff Dunham. He's a racist, unfunny piece of shiat who plays to the lowest common denominator. He's not even a very good ventriloquist. His lips move like crazy.


Wow. Lemme guess. Your name is Achmed.

maram500: Smashed Hat: Oh thank God, I thought that was going to be something about Jeff Dunham.

Agreed--sort of. Why do people have a problem with him? He is actually pretty funny.


I enjoyed him when I was younger (I vaguely remember a routine with a duck that he was using on the late-night stand-up shows before he broke it big).  The jokes have always been a bit stale or straight-forward, but vaudeville was never about cutting-edge material.  When he played my local theater, he had to break out Bubba J as an encore.  The audience made his job easy; they knew the lines by heart.

A few years ago,  caught his most recent(?) TV special, the first one after the divorce.  His routine wasn't really funny anymore, he got bitter and angry and it bled through everything he did.  He'd become a real-life Walter.

/the interactions between Peanut and Jose are still funny

He probably also thinks it's racist that most folk don't like black coffee. Also that the terms 'black hat' and 'white hat' are racist.  Also, everything else because white guilt.


Interestingly enough, Jeff has a show in Dubai some time in the near future.
Would be interesting to see if/what he does the Achmed routine.
