US Comedy Superstar Jeff Dunham Announces One NZ Show!


NEW ZEALAND TOUR 2018

TICKETS ON SALE TUESDAY 22 MAY 9am

Record-breaking global comedy superstar, Jeff Dunham, is bringing his cast of characters to New Zealand in September 2018 with his brand-new show Passively Aggressive.

America’s favourite ventriloquist, Dunham has recently released his latest standup special, Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster, on Netflix. The special features Dunham along with his ill-behaved and slightly demented posse of characters for a gleeful skewering of family and politics. Dunham and his famous cohorts Walter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, and Peanut also consider what a new member to their already dysfunctional family could mean, putting the ‘relative’ in Relative Disaster.

Dunham, a Guinness World Record holder for Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-up Comedy Tour, has built an entertainment empire over years of non-stop touring and innovation. With over a million YouTube subscribers amassing over a billion views, he has carved out his own unique space in the comedy world leading to record-breaking viewership with his comedy specials. His 2015 standup special, Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood, debuted in the US Primetime in the fall and ranked as the time period’s top non-sports program on the Big 4 in every key measure.

After taping Relative Disaster in Dublin, Ireland, Dunham returned to the U.S. and has continued selling out arenas across the country on his Perfectly Unbalanced Tour.

Finally, adding to an amazing list of recent accomplishments, Dunham’s contribution to the world of show business and comedy, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, commemorating over two decades of superstardom. Said Dunham recently, “When I moved to Los Angeles in 1988 with a car full of clothes and a couple of dummies, never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that one day I would be tripping over my own star on the Walk of Fame. It’s truly fantastic and a great honor; I just hope it’s not in front of an adult store. Okay, actually, that would be hilarious.”

Scoop Review Of Books: Who Killed Jane?

This is an important book. Why? Because any publication that soberly and sensibly attempts to cast light on an unsolved murder is important, for the very real reasons that not only do the bereaved require and deserve a sense of closure, but that the murderer or murderers may be closer to being confirmed, arrested, tried.
