Comic/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham brings his friends to Kelowna

Dunham, along with his cast of hilarious characters, embarks on the second leg of his Perfectly Unbalanced Tour, coming to Kelowna March 23.

International comedy sensation Jeff Dunham has performed in front of sold-out audiences worldwide, and now the comic/ventriloquist is bringing his cast of hilarious characters on the second leg of his hugely successful Perfectly Unbalanced Tour to Kelowna’s Prospera Place March 23.

Dunham and his sidekicks set out on the first leg of their Perfectly Unbalanced tour, selling out hundreds of thousands of seats across North America. Fans came out in masses to find themselves intoxicated by the non-stop hilarity, proving Dunham’s continued overwhelming popularity.

Over the past 46 years, Dunham and his world famous characters have garnered numerous accolades, from being named Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list of Most Powerful Entertainers, as well as setting the Guinness World Records for the most tickets sold for a stand-up comedy tour, to setting the record for viewership on Comedy Central.

He has sold more than seven million DVDs worldwide and has nearly a billion views on YouTube.

Dunham’s seventh comedy special Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood, aired on NBC earning the top spot as the most-watched non-sports program in primetime viewing in the period.

Dunham hand crafts each character personally from conception to the final coat of paint then brings them to life on stage. His beloved troupe of sidekicks include Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Ached the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J, the manic purple creature Peanut, the spicy pepper from south of the border Jose Jalapeno and Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself.

The famed comedian has literally been all over the map, visiting five continents and 12 countries including the U.K., South Africa, Australia, the Middle East, and Asia, where he continuously performed to sold-out arenas.

Dunham has carved a unique corner in the comedy world that’s as funny as it is popular. The New York Times Magazine declared Dunham “the most successful comedian working in America.”  He has been 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.
