Customer Reviews

I would recommend for adults to watch it.
Bethany Terwilliger
The show was funny, for sure, but the racist jokes were a bit much for me.
D. Lynch
I watched every episode of this show, twice!

"The Jeff Dunham Show" is a Comedy Central offshoot of Jeff Dunham's live shows using the familiar characters Walter, Achmed, Bubba J, Sweet Daddy Dee, Peanut, and Jose Jalapeno. In this seven episode season, Dunham introduces his characters onstage in front of an audience and then goes to a clip of them out in the real world trying to interact with other people.

Watching the show, the format is VERY similar to the Dave Chappelle Show where he would interact with the audience and introduce segments and then go to the clip in a sketch comedy sort of way. However, the difference between Dave Chappelle and Jeff Dunham was that Chappelle was really good at this. When Dunham takes his characters out in public, the audience is supposed to believe they are real people and other actors and celebrities talk to the puppets. For example, Brooke Hogan is set up with Peanut on a date until Peanut "eats" some guacamole laced with nuts that he is allergic to and Achmed intercepts the date to put the moves on her. We see the characters' feet, dancing with other people, shooting guns, all sorts of things.

If you like these characters and think they are funny on their own, than this show will probably work for you and you'll enjoy it. The magic of the previous live show format was that everyone marveled at Dunham's ability to DO these characters since ventriloquism isn't easy and there was always potential for him to start cracking up too much or making a mistake or Achmed's arm falling off which would increase the hilarity of any given bit. Taking the "live" quality out of the format with everything being pre-taped in these segments means they could have used as many takes as they wanted to finish a scene, so it just isn't as impressive as when it is done on the spot.

I like Jeff Dunham as a comedian, he's hilarious! However, I did not think his show had good content. I laughed a few times but overall was not impressed.

I own all the Jeff Dunham specials, this is a cheap crappy knock off. I had high hopes for it. Even though we have seen the other dvds many time my husband never fails to laugh, he never cracked a smile at this. I can say it enough it is crap.

I like his stand-ups and have watched them all, but the show is below my expectations. Focus on the stand-up.

As I say in my title do you really want to buy this? I really love the heck out of Jeff Dunham but unfortunately his new TV show just doesn't have it and actually the second season has been canceled, but in by another review from CNN I heard that Comedy Central is going to keep Jeff Dunham because they have multilevel agreements with him but the TV show is gone. There are a few funny moments in the seven episodes of his first season but I purchased it because I don't watch TV I watch DVDs. But in less you are a dedicated fan of his work I would not buy this DVD, I would purchase his former DVDs which are hilarious and will keep laughing over and over again when you watch them. Even though this was only $10 at Amazon I am going to keep it because I am an avid fan of Jeff Dunham. I hope my review helped you in any way. Thank you.

Expectations were high based upon cable TV specials and performances, the first episode left those expectations unfulfilled. I may not watch the second eppiside, but would still pay to see his routine live.

This video was quite simply just aweful. I could only watch it half-way, before I had to turn it off. I could not bear to watch it all the way through. If his entire show or series was like that, it's no wonder it bombed so badly so quickly. This video is nothing like his stand-up routine - I just love Jeff Dunham, but this video about his TV show does not do him justice at all.
