    Date: August 16th, 2014

    Jeff Dunham is bringing his eclectic posse of puppets back to Atlantic City July 13th, 2014 when Peanut, Walter, Ahmed, and more go crazy at the Borgata Events Center. Over the course of his career he has proven that a ventriloquist can have huge mainstream success. Dunham and his suitcase posse of puppets have sold out clubs and theaters nationwide and released four popular stand-up specials. Dunham’s act consists mostly of banter between himself and his puppets, each of whom has a distinct and eccentric personality. Much of the comedian’s humor is based on race and political incorrectness, allowing his puppets to say things that no mainstream celeb could to get away with in most cases today. The Borgata is a great venue to see a comedian like Jeff Dunham live, you are up close and personal with him as he takes you on a journey using creative puppets, funny comedy and crowd interaction second to none in his field.
