Dunham opens the show with a monologue of about ten or eleven minutes. It's a little strange to see him without a puppet, but he does prove that he can be funny on his own - albeit not as funny as he is with his special friends. Fan favorites Walter and Achmed the Dead Terrorist get the most time on stage. Dunham has only limited success in getting the curmudgeonly Walter into the Christmas spirit, but Achmed ends up entertaining all of us infidels with a great Jingle Bells parody called Jingle Bombs. Next up, and straight from the trailer park, is Bubba J, who gives Achmed quite a run for his money with his own Christmas classic, Roadkill Christmas. Of course, you can't have a Jeff Dunham show without Peanut there to liven things up, and then Jose the Jalapeño on a Stick joins both Jeff and Peanut onstage. The comedy does get a little risqué at times and, of course, the politically correct crowd out there will cry and moan about Dunham's "culturally insensitive" jokes, oblivious to the fact that Dunham is an equal opportunity offender who is happy to poke fun at just about any group out there. Personally, I say more power to him, but I think it is important to note that this comedy special isn't really something that most parents will want their younger children watching.
I do have a couple of minor issues with this special, however. First and foremost, I was surprised and disappointed to hear some words beeped out - a few of which probably wouldn't even be beeped out on Comedy Central. This isn't a children's video, so I see no point in allowing a censor to get his grubby hands on this product before it was released. That brings me to the editing of this video in general, which appears to have been done by a fourth grader. The first half of this video features two of the clumsiest and most sloppy edits I've ever seen. It's like someone cut out a chunk of the film and just taped the two sides back together. Fortunately, these problems don't come close to putting a dent in the fun unleashed by Dunham and the gang in this Christmas special. Unless you lie awake at night worrying about the hurt feelings of mad terrorists who want to kill you, you're going to love Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special.
Achmed is still my Numero Uno--with "Poliosis". Walter was edged this time by Peanut for my Numero Dos. (You have to see the "Nyquil and Red Bull" skit to believe it.) Bubba J was hilarious. The Guitar Guy sent the whole thing over the top. Waaay over the top.
I've watched it several times since receiving it a few weeks ago, have loaned it out to friends--with the threat of "Poliosis" if I don't get it back. I'll probably need to get another DVD in a few months because I've worn this one out.
This is for anybody who needs a little bit of laughter in her/his lives. Correction: so much laughter you'll be sore the next day. Put this on your Christmas Wish List. You gotta have it.

I strongly recommend this if you like Jeff Dunham
Jeff Dunham has returned and is amazing, the whole dvd is awesome, This is my 3rd dvd by Jeff Dunham never fails to deliver.
Very highly recommended to everyone and trust me it doesnt fail to disappoint, if your a fan of Jeff Dunham you'll be happy to know the dvd includes :-
For those of you who are looking for something different this christmas this is an excellent place to start. Enjoy all your chistmas favourites from Achmed including SILENCE night and Jingle Bombs!!!
This is a dvd of a brilliant ventriliquist who has several friends!! who come out to share their thoughts and songs with others. Jeff Dunham also sends him self and his family up in telling some hillarious and true stories that will ring true to everyone.
I would definately recomend this even just to see achmed the dead terrorist sing jingle bombs!!!.
