JEFF DUNHAM
Spark of Insanity
Christmas will never be the same after the November 16th Comedy Central debut of Jeff Dunham’s very first holiday DVD, “A Very Special Christmas Special.”  This comedy icon has sold two million DVDs, racking up more than 200 million worldwide Internet views of his online clips.  He continues selling out top venues across North America on his current $28 million grossing tour to become a contemporary cultural force who will deliver a brand new level of hilarity to the holiday season.
The pop culture phenomenon hailed as “easily one of the funniest stand-up comics alive” (Dallas Morning News), “one of the most popular acts in the country” (Boston Globe) and “the best there is” (Jay Leno) debuts “A Very Special Christmas Special” on Comedy Central on November 16, to be followed by its release on DVD. Dunham’s first holiday TV show is sure to win ratings as strong as his two previous specials, “Arguing With Myself” and “Spark Of Insanity,” which are among the most-watched programs ever on Comedy Central.
“A Very Special Christmas Special” is sure to join Dunham’s previous specials as one of the cable channel’s top hit shows and as a DVD easily earn 10 platinum sales awards — for sales of a million copies; average comedy DVD sales are a mere 25,000 — with a comedic extravaganza that is certain to become a holiday tradition for the millions that love his humor.
In the special, Dunham and his whip smart and wickedly funny dummies Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, Peanut and Jose Jalepeno trim the tree and surround it with the gift of “nonstop fits of laughter” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) to celebrate the holidays with irresistible and often provocative comedy that will bring Santa-sized belly laughs to the 2008 holiday season.
Soon Dunham’s loyal legion of “Puppethead” fans will be singing “Jingle Bombs” (Achmed’s holiday song) and enjoying “A Roadkill Christmas” with Bubba J that features such treats as beernog (“You take a quart of eggnog and pour it down the sink. And then you drink a beer”) and reindeer jerky. With Achmed’s “I keel you!” and Jose’s “on a steek!” already part of today’s popular lexicon, Dunham’s new holiday season catchphrases like Bubba’s “Screw you, merry Christmas” and Achmed’s “Merry Christmas, infidels!” are sure to follow.
