Jeff Dunham adds an extra Jozi show to his tour

Attention Jeff Dunham fans… if you don’t have your tickets and you’re still wanting to go (plus you’re in Jozi) you might want to read on. The star is back and due to popular demand, he has added an extra show to his Johannesburg leg of the tour.

The 17th of June has been added to the itinerary so if you’re one of those people who missed out on tickets, best you head to computicket now! Full press release below:

Jeff Dunham’s global appeal is undeniable. With three sold out arena shows in Johannesburg for his latest international tour “Controlled Chaos” the promoters have added a final show to meet the overwhelming demand at the box office on Sunday, 17 June at 1pm at Carnival City.

His television specials and series have been the highest rated programming in Comedy Central history, his DVD sales have reached seven million units, his videos have received a half a billion views on You Tube, and his live concerts have become mega-events played in front of sold-out arenas worldwide.  A video of Jeff featuring his character Achmed the Dead Terrorist remains in the top ten most “favorited” and 40 most “liked” of all time on YouTube.

Jeff’s latest, much-anticipated fourth stand-up special, Controlled Chaos, became the third most watched program in the history of Comedy Central within days of airing.

A spokesperson from Comedy Central Africa refers to Jeff Dunham as “Comedy Royalty”.

“We are thrilled to host him on his sell-out tour to South Africa!  Comedy Central has dedicated the whole of June to Jeff Dunham; tune in to Comedy Central on DSTV channel 122  to watch all Jeff’s blockbuster comedy specials as well as his award-winning show ‘Controlled Chaos’ as part of Jeff Dunham June mania”.

With two new characters, South Africans can see firsthand why he has been voted “the most popular comedian in the United States.”

Along with two new characters, fans will still get to see Walter, the grumpy retiree; the beer-swilling, NASCAR-loving and resolutely red neck Bubba J; the furry and manic Peanut; José Jalapeño, the spicy pepper from South of the border; and the bumbling skeletal Achmed the Dead Terrorist.   They may have all been conceived and hand crafted by Dunham, but his characters, who are anything but dummies, have now taken on a life of their own, each with their own legion of fans.
