Record-breaking, global comedy superstar, Jeff Dunham, is bringing his cast of characters to the UK in 2022 for six dates only. America’s favourite ventriloquist has announced the UK leg of his ‘Seriously!?’ tour that starts on Thursday 12th May at Bournemouth’s International Centre and culminates on Wednesday 18th May at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena.
For more than 14 years, Jeff Dunham and his delightfully irreverent cohorts, Peanut, Walter, José Jalapeño, Bubba J. and Achmed the Dead Terrorist, have filled arenas across the world with their multiple blockbuster tours. Now, in addition to his usual cast of accomplices, “SERIOUSLY!?” includes the newest member of the troupe, “Larry.” As the President’s personal advisor, he gives his hilarious take on what it’s like to work at the White House.
Dunham released his last Netflix Originals Stand-up Special, “Jeff Dunham: Beside Himself” in 2019. This followed on the success of 2017’s “Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster,” the new show is Dunham’s second special for Netflix Originals, and the ninth in his impressive string of record-breaking stand-up specials. He has built an entertainment empire over years of non-stop touring and performance innovation. With 10 million followers on Facebook and over 2.1 million YouTube subscribers, amassing well over a billion views, the comedian/ventriloquist has carved out his own unique space in the comedy world.
A Texas native, Dunham moved to Los Angeles after graduating from Baylor University and soon became a sensation on the national comedy club circuit. He later became a multi-platinum selling DVD artist and achieving record-breaking ratings on both cable and network TV. Dunham’s previous stand-up specials, ‘Unhinged in Hollywood’, “Arguing with Myself,” “Spark of Insanity,” “A Very Special Christmas,” “Controlled Chaos,” “Minding the Monsters,” and “All Over the Map,” have garnered record-breaking numbers by either claiming “most watched” or “highest rated” on Comedy Central.
Dunham has made many cameo appearances across television and film, from the Emmy Award-winning comedy series “30 Rock,” “Angie Tribeca,” and “Dinner for Schmucks,” starring Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd. His autobiography, “All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed and Me,” was on the New York Times’ Best Seller list three weeks in a row. Dunham has also been awarded “Billboard’s Top Comedy Tour” for three years based on box office sales. Adding to an amazing list of recent accomplishments, Dunham’s contribution to the world of show business and comedy was recognized in 2017 when he received a star on the “Hollywood Walk of Fame,” commemorating over two decades of superstardom.
