Jeff Dunham and his crew of crazy characters performed yesterday in a nearly sold out Huntington Center in downtown Toledo.
The “Disorderly Conduct” show featured many of the puppets that have made Dunham one of the most popular comedians in America. Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J and the manic purple creature Peanut were just a few of the fan favorites.
Jeff Dunham’s “Disorderly Conduct” is the second nationally known act to appear at the Huntington recently. Trans-Siberian Orchestra made an appearance in November. Upcoming national acts at the Huntington include the Harlem Globetrotters and Lady Antebellum. See the Huntington website for more information.
Dunham’s soaring popularity is evident in many ways. First, he sells out arena sized sites. Next, his most recent TV special, “Minding the Monsters”, premiered with a record audience of 7.5 million viewers on Comedy Central. The final bit of evidence is the sales of his comedy DVD’s. The “Minding the Monsters” DVD went platinum in six days, and so far it has reached triple platinum. Dunham continues to expand his career with roles in films. He recently appeared in “Dinner with Schmucks”, and this coming January he will be in the animated comedy “The Nut Job” where Dunham will give voice to a mole.
In what little free time the comedian has, he collects cars. He owns a number of classic and modern cars including a Batmobile. Check out the video above this article to learn more about Dunham’s obsession with automobiles.
The “Disorderly Conduct” tour continues until April 12 where Dunham will conclude the U.S. portion of the tour in Chicago, Illinois. From there, the tour goes international with many stops in the United Kingdom including Dublin and London. This is Dunham’s sixth trip to Europe.
