Trivia

Achmed's son A.J. is portrayed as the exact opposite of his irritable contemptuous murderous papa, both in personality and mindset, but with a humorous "visual pun" twist: while Achmed hates most humans as being "infidels" whom he wants to "keel", the passive peaceable soft-spoken A.J. is totally a "lover of men", but in a literal sense, since he views males as attractive and romantically desirable.

Goofs

It is implied that A.J. is Achmed's only offspring, yet Achmed remarks that "Mother's Day was a b***h --- and so were most of the mothers" when he and Jeff are speaking about the 46 wives whom Achmed had been married to when he was a live person, so this indicates that these women had borne quite a number of children for Achmed.

Quotes

Achmed the Dead Terrorist: Knock knock.
Jeff Dunham: Who's there?
Achmed the Dead Terrorist: Me, I kill you again!
[laughs]
Achmed the Dead Terrorist: You're such an idiot! You keep answering the door! Where I am from, the game we teach our children is when someone says "Knock knock", you shut the fuck up and hide.
[laughter]

The Nay-sayers may be on to something...
31 May 2013 | by carol-alexisSee all my reviews

I am a HUGE Jeff Dunham fan. So much so that I've watched every show and skit he's done about a hundred times each. Every comedian has a different style, content, attitude, and different delivery. Naturally not everyone is going to think Jeff Dunham is funny. His type of comedy is very lighthearted, and pokes fun at things that a wider variety of audiences can relate to and enjoy. If you're looking for Andrew Dice Clay (over the top), Carlos Mencia (all about race), Steve Colbert (all about politics), well, he's none of the above. His punchlines are a little random really...about random things. While almost every comedian jokes about serious subjects such as race, money, and politics, Dunham's show gives us a break from all of that. Think of it as adult Disneyland, complete with puppets. In short, big kids (adults) will love this humor and can even spend a family night enjoying the show together.

So why the low rating? I've read all sorts of negative reviews which I didn't believe at the time. However after attending one of his live shows and spending over $200 on seats I've come to realize that there is a lot of truth to what people are saying about Dunham. He's out of material and he's a one trick pony. This latest tour he was on was such a complete disappointment that I wish I could get a refund. The "Disorderly Conduct" tour was almost 90% a compilation of material from everything we already saw on TV over a hundred times. Sitting in my seat, knowing the punchline to near every joke was upsetting. Some of the material was nearly 6 years old. So I decided to read reviews on previous tours and guess what? They complained about the old material back then too. So if every show is just a compilation of used material, what does that say about Dunham? What does that say about what he owes his die-hard fans, who know his routine word for word already and PAID expecting more? Regular stand up comedians don't respect him because they say he depends too much on props and is not a true comic. Dunham wants to be respected as a stand up. How many stand up comedians get away with reusing old material over and over? None.
