"Ventriloquist of the Year" Award twice
Book or Hire Jeff Dunham
The handsome, thirty something veteran of performing has certainly honed his craft: performing 40 weeks and 250 dates a year in concert venues and the occasional comedy club, Dunham is one of the hardest working entertainers around.
While never holding a job in the “real world,” he has compiled an impressive resume. The only person ever to win the prestigious “Ventriloquist of the Year” Award twice, he was recently nominated “Comedian of the Year” by the INN Music City News Country Awards.
Among numerous television appearances, he has appeared on “The Tonight Show” more than any other ventriloquist.
Dunham has since appeared regularly on “The Tonight Show,” in numerous stand-up comedy series and in such specials as “Hot Country Nights,” taking his act from the club circuit to sold-out concert venues as a headliner in his own right. No stranger to the theatrical stage, he also toured with the Broadway musical “Sugar Babies.”
A master entertainer, Dunham has been featured as the opening act for dozens of major stars including Gloria Estefan, Julio Iglesias, Reba McEntire, Glen Campbell, Tanya Tucker, the Oak Ridge Boys and Bob Hope, with whom Dunham shared two unique moments: sitting on a couch with Hope and critiquing “Saturday Night Live” and flying aboard Hope’s private Lear jet.
