Biography

Jeff Dunham is a ventriloquist and stand-up comedian. He has performed on numerous comedy shows including Comedy Central Presents in 2003. Some of his usual puppets include a woozle named Peanut, a bitter old man named Walter, and José Jalapeño - a talking jalapeño pepper on a stick. His latest DVD, Jeff Dunham: Arguing With Myself, was released in April 2006. In this stand-up offering, Jeff opens his show playing straight-man to his usual crew and includes four recently added characters. Sweet Daddy D, Bubba J, Melvin the Superhero Guy, and Achmed the Dead Terrorist.

Puppets

Peanut

Peanut is a purple woozle with purple fur, a small tuft of green hair on his head (which, according to Dunham, are Ostrich feathers), and only one shoe. Unlike most of Jeff Dunham’s puppets, his eyes and eyebrows are immobile. This allows for a greater range of motion for his head. Peanut also has a rod attached to his left elbow which Jeff uses to operate and further the range of the puppet’s movement.

According to his fictional biography, Peanut was born on an island in Micronesia in the Pacific Ocean near Guam and has five siblings (Eeny, Meeny, Miny and Fred). He never finished school. He moved to the United States in 1986. According to the official website, he met Jeff Dunham in central Texas, but according to Arguing With Myself, they met in Florida.

There is a special feature on the DVD showing Jeff Dunham’s pet chihuahua humping the puppet. There is also an outtake where Peanut’s green tuft of hair accidentally came out.

    A guy attracts thousands to his shows, and is so unpopular here? <----- Popularity doesn't equal quality. If that were the case, Rebecca Black and Justin Bieber would be musical geniuses.

    Fucking horrible comedian. "Rednecks like beer!" (laughter and applause) "There are terrorists who blow themselves up!" (laughter and applause) "I use ventriloquism as a gimmick in a desperate attempt to compensate for hackneyed 'jokes' and lazy stereotype humor!" (laughter and applause) [2]

    ...But played out, unoriginal, borderline-racist jokes are so funny when there's a puppet involved...

    not funny. [2] Jeff Dunham A.K.A. the biggest douchebag in America. [2] Not even a smirk was brought to my face while listening to this jackass [2] His show looks lame. It's this year's Mind of Mencia.

    I don't think he's racist. He makes fun of white trash, black, muslim, and hispanic stereotypes... and hyper psychopaths. Are you just upset that he doesn't have an Asian or Native American puppet? I saw him live a few months ago and laughed my ass off. Like him or don't, but he is truly talented.
