Sunday, February 24 - 5:00pm Breathing life into an elderly curmudgeon, or a purple human-like creature from the Micronesian islands, or even a self-effacing, talking jalapeno-on-a-stick, Jeff Dunham is straight man to some of the funniest partners in show business. He has amassed legions of loyal fans throughout the United States and abroad with thousands of sold-out theater and comedy club performances, countless television guest spots - including numerous Tonight Show appearances with both Leno and Carson - and with two top-rated specials on Comedy Central. He continues to win great accolades and success for one simple reason: He and his buddies are funny as hell. Oh, and by the way...Jeff Dunham is a ventriloquist. Dunham's comedic skill, impeccable technique, and sleight of hand make him a master of his craft. In fact, audiences often forget there is a person behind the puppets. Don't miss this laugh out loud performance! Tickets: $39.50
