STANDUP PHENOMENON JEFF DUNHAM BRINGS HIS NEW LAUGH PACKED “DISORDERLY CONDUCT” WORLDWIDE TOUR TO THE SPORTPALEIS IN ANTWERP, BELGIUM ON

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17th

 

 

 

  Jeff Dunham’s all new “Disorderly Conduct” worldwide tour offers his global fan base a brand new show packed with more laughs than ever before. Dunham’s famed troupe of sidekicks are back: Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J, the manic purple creature Peanut, the spicy pepper from south of the border José Jalapeño, and Peanut’s own ventriloquist dummy Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself.  

 

 

 

Dunham and his comedic sidekicks most recent Comedy Central one hour special entitled “Minding the Monsters,” 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!

 

 

 

In 2013, fans will get the chance to see Achmed the Dead Terrorist like he's never been seen before! This December, Jeff Dunham will premiere his very first animated feature “Achmed Saves America,” starring the world’s most beloved, failed bad-guy!  In this full length animated movie, Achmed is having a very bad day... After accidentally blowing himself up, the world's most incompetent suicide bomber finds himself whisked away from his homeland by a giant bald eagle and dropped off in... Americaville, USA. There, mistaken by the kind-hearted Wilson family for a visiting French exchange student, "The Little Skeleton That Couldn't" bumblingly plots to destroy the town and all of its "infidels".  But, once he's exposed to the sweet things in life -- including all-you-can-eat buffets and frozen yogurt -- Achmed's campaign of hate turns into a patriotic All-American lovefest. 

 

 

 

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. 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.

 

 

 

When Dunham isn’t on the road packing arenas full of enthusiastic fans here and abroad, one of his favorite pursuits is his collection of classic American-made muscle and sports cars and other vehicles. For last year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas – the largest automotive specialty products trade event in

 

the world - he teamed up with the Chrysler Group’s Mopar Street and Racing Technology team to create a customized 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT-8 dubbed “Project UltraViolet” for its vivid violet paint job with a black rooftop that was a highlight of the event.

 

 

 

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. .

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, TX hometown,  followed by years of intensive touring on the comedy club circuit from his college years into adulthood to becoming an international comedy phenomenon.
