Las Vegas loves America’s favorite comic Jeff Dunham, so back by popular demand, Dunham and his beloved cast of characters will take over The Colosseum at Caesars Palace once again with his “Disorderly Conduct” tour on Friday, June 13 at 8 p.m. (Pictured: Jeff Dunham and Achmed).
Serendipity 3 at Caesars Palace, one of Jeff’s go-to Vegas dining spots, worked with him to create his favorite, custom sundae that fans can now experience. The Dunham is a yummy mix of sweets consisting of Cookies and Cream Ice Cream, Cookie Dough Ice Cream, Hot Fudge, and a delicious side of Marshmallow Sauce for an extra blast of sweet. For a limited time, The Dunham is included in a special Serendipity 3 ticket/dinner package. The package is $102.50 per person and includes one preferred Rear Orchestra seat, a choice of select appetizer, a choice of select entrée, and of course, The Dunham sundae!
Dunham is best-known for his famed troupe of sidekicks who are on tour with him: 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 hand-crafts each character personally and brings them to life on stage.
Dunham will be traveling the globe in 2014, visiting the UK, South Africa, Australia, the Middle East, and Asia. This follows his travels last year visiting Scandinavia, Belgium, the Netherlands and Iceland, where he continuously performed to sold-out arenas.
Dunham fans, better known as “Dunham Maniacs,” will soon get the chance to see Achmed the Dead Terrorist like he’s never been seen before with Jeff Dunham’s first animated film “Achmed Saves America.” When Achmed visits Americaville, USA, he’s mistaken for a visiting French exchange student as he plots to destroy the town and all of its “infidels.” But, once he’s exposed to the sweet things in life in America — including all-you-can-eat buffets and frozen yogurt — Achmed’s campaign of hate turns into a patriotic All-American lovefest. “Achmed Saves America” will be released on DVD March 18 and the movie premieres March 28 at 10 p.m. on CMT.
Jeff Dunham’s TV specials continue to be some of the highest rated on television. When Dunham’s Comedy Central special “Minding the Monsters” premiered to a viewing audience of 7.5 million viewers, it became 2012’s most-watched show on the network. Upon its release on DVD, it was the #1 comedy DVD on Amazon.com and exceeded platinum sales within six days. It has already reached triple platinum status. Prior to that, Dunham’s fifth Comedy Central TV special “Controlled Chaos,” premiered to a staggering 8.3 million viewers and was 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.
It is little 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 two years in a row.
