Ventriloquist and comic Jeff Dunham takes to the stage to provide fresh comedic material with his classic puppets Walter, Peanut, Jose Jalapeño and Achmed, as well as with two never-before-seen characters with their own unique quirks.
Explores and examines the world of ventriloquism through clips, photos and interviews with many of the greatest vents from today and yesterday, illustrating that this perceived novelty act is truly an extraordinary art form.

Ventriloquists are generally unfunny. It's a comedic art form that died out about a half-century ago; the fact that Jeff Dunham is so bad at ventriloquism only makes this show's existence even more insulting.
I don't know how he managed to lure so many people in with his "specials" and break so many records in the process, but he's a pretty crappy comedian and an even worse ventriloquist. (Honestly, half his face moves when the puppets are "talking.") His comedic taste is on par with the Larry the Cable Guys of this world. The premiere episode of this show featured a special guest appearance by...Brooke Hogan. 'Nuff said.
It's unbearably unfunny and barely tolerable. Thankfully, despite a record-breaking debut episode, Comedy Central canned this trash after its scathing reviews (check out MetaCritic's score) and declining ratings.
Unfortunately, I doubt this is the last we'll see of Jeff Dunham.
