Product Description

Controlled Chaos – The Brand New Stand-Up Special from Jeff Dunham

Jeff Dunham is back in his much-anticipated fourth concert event, with all-new material and unparalleled comedy that surpasses his record-breaking specials Arguing with Myself, Spark of Insanity, and A Very Special Christmas Special. All the favorites are here, plus two never-before-seen characters certain to unleash their own unique havoc on stage.

Dunham is an international phenomenon with sold out stadium concerts, one-half billion YouTube views, and television shows that remain among the highest rated in Comedy Central history. Controlled Chaos is guaranteed to deliver an unequaled number of laughs per minute – whether you’re a Dunham Maniac or seeing him and his partners for the very first time.

The phrase wildly popular ventriloquist was supposed to have gone out of the language sometime in the 1970s, at the latest. But here's Jeff Dunham, a huge 21st-century-star and a man who unashamedly speaks through his puppets… or do they speak through him? In Controlled Chaos, Dunham presents a live concert performance that leans heavily on three favorite dummies: cranky old man Walter, infidel-hating skeleton Achmed the Dead Terrorist, and the mischievous purple whatzit, Peanut. (Lesser roles are doled out to José Jalapeño, the talking chili pepper on a stick, and Achmed's half-blown-up son.) Dunham's act is exceptionally polished, and he gets some honest laughs from his no-dummies opening monologue, as he mocks his own childhood via some very geeky school photographs. Then come the routines: Walter makes fun of Africans who live in houses made of elephant dung, Peanut does a drawn-out routine about the challenging accents of employees at Chinese restaurants, and Achmed (by now Dunham's most consistently successful bit) rails against everybody. Dunham's alleged "political incorrectness" looks a lot like old-school adolescent humor, and there's little in the mainstream-just-slightly-racy act that your mom can't enjoy--although the DVD comes with a "Bleeped Version" of the concert, just in case. Even if you don't cotton to Dunham's jokes, his skill at presenting well-defined characters (and at creating meta-gags about ventriloquist acts) is on full display here. The disc includes outtakes of on-stage flubs and some behind-the-scenes material. --Robert Horton

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny, but could be better October 26, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Jeff has been my favorite comedian from the time I saw him on VH1 comedy shows back in the early 90s, so I had to get this the moment it came out. I was a little disappointed at most of the performance, as it seemed to be missing much of Jeff's sharp wit. That's not to say it isn't funny. There are points where I was laughing so hard I cried (in particular, Jeff's routine with Achmed shines in this DVD as a stand out performance), but it seemed like Jeff has been worn down a bit by the Political Correctness elitists who are always complaining about his act. A little too much time in this performance was spent attempting to appease critics with asides and it seemed like he was trying to walk a mine field. Based on the out-takes and special features, it appears this special was produced like a sitcom, with multiple takes and a set flow. This detracts heavily from Jeff's true talent as an Audience Worker. Some of Jeff's best moments involve his working the audience with jabs and jokes, but that portion of his act is completely absent here, which is disappointing. There's almost too much polish on this DVD and not nearly enough of what makes Jeff a truly great comedian.

5.0 out of 5 stars SIT THE HELL DOWN....I'M NOT DONE YET!!! July 22, 2011
Got to see Jeff and the gang on tour last month!! I've got to family and I have always been huge Jeff fans, but the new tour made us even bigger fans! The new characters are hilarious and definitely worth seeing. Can't wait for the DVD to come out so we can add to our Dunham collection and continue to enjoy what this comedic genius has to offer!! Way to go Jeff Fa Fa!!! :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Jeff Dunham's Controlled Chaos October 12, 2011
By now I think that most everyone has some familiarity with Jeff Dunham, but in case you don't, he is a ventriloquist. But he's a ventriloquist with a wide range of characters that seem almost real and he does some comedy too and has managed to now make several movies and even had his own tv show for awhile. This is the latest of those movies.

Controlled Chaos brings back Jeff's most beloved puppets, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Jose Jalapeno on a Stick, Peanut, and Walter. It also features two new puppets, Achmed's son and Little Jeff. Each has their own personality and Jeff does a skit with one or two of them at a time, interacting with himself, each other, and the audience. At the beginning, he also does a comedy routine without the puppets as well.

As said before, each of the puppets has its own personality. Walter is a grouchy old man who really isn't afraid of saying anything to anybody. He likes to lament his marriage and the youth today as well as anything else he happens to think is frivolous. Achmed is fond of trying to kill people, and claims to harbor a relationship with other terrorists. In this particular movie he interacts with his son which adds a whole new dimension to him. Jose Jalapeno uses few words but they always seem to get many laughs. Being that he is on a stick he doesn't move around much, but he isn't required too, unless someone mentions Mexican food. Peanut is probably the oddest of Jeff's characters. I'm not really sure what he is but he looks funny and tends to be real goofy and childlike and loves to get on Jeff's nerves.

While this particular movie had its funny moments, I didn't find it near as good as his other movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good time laugh November 25, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Another great one from Jeff Dunham and his "family" Controlled Chaos is a laugh a minute. We love the new "AJ" character. I am glad to see him making new characters that go well with the old ones as well. Happy to spend my hard earned money on a Jeff Dunham DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars funny November 6, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This Dvd makes you laugh just as much as the other ones if not more. Achmed and Peanut are even funnier in this DVD. there is one part that skips but that was done in editing because of how it was recorded, its only the audience clapping though and then skips to him bringing out a character fast, you notice it but does not take away from any joke and you do not miss anything the characters are saying.
