|Jeff Dunham to perform at Chester Fritz Auditorium|
Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 31, at the Chester Fritz Auditorium. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, April 25.
Jeff Dunham’s undeniable talent has transcended the art of ventriloquism and transformed it into a cutting-edge comedy experience. Dunham of course never travels alone, and fans of all ages have fallen in love with his fast-talking and socially reckless “Suitcase Posse.” First, and probably most recognizable to TV viewers, is "Walter," the elderly, outspoken, and politically incorrect curmudgeon who spouts his views on the foibles of marriage, politics, and anything else that needs skewering in American culture. Next is "Peanut," a frenzied, loudmouthed, purple, loveable imp, who Walter describes as "a Muppet on crack." Then there’s "José Jalapeño," a chili pepper who teamed up with Dunham after a pogo accident in his home country of Mexico, permanently placing him "on a STEEK!" Lowest on the I.Q. chart is "Bubba J," simply white trash and trailer park, and a true diehard beer-drinking NASCAR fan. Finally, Dunham’s latest character to join the act is "Achmed the Dead Terrorist," who thankfully has failed in multiple suicidal tasks, and has allowed Dunham to throw a spitball directly in the eye of political correctness.
