Watch Jeff Dunham: Arguing With Myself
Not many comedians can be both a comedian and his own straight man. Jeff Dunham pulls it off with admirable skill. Jeff is a ventriloquist who uses some of the greatest dummies of all time. Working with the character of the dummies, Jeff gives them the best lines while he asks pertinent questions or spins a story line. The man has imagination and a funny bone that won't quit. Walter is a crotchety old man whose wife drives him crazy. Jeff and Walter interact with the audience in a question and answer session, with Walter getting some hysterical reactions from the audience. Next you will meet Sweet Daddy Dee, Jeff's street-smart, wise-acre manager. Sweet Daddy is appalled that Jeff doesn't understand the simplest street language. His opinion of Jeff is that he's too white. Neon white, to use Sweet Daddy's words. Jeff's future as a comedian looks dark. Bubba J. is a white-trash trailer park fella with a thing for beer, NASCAR, and his wife. He met her at the county fair, and can still remember her curlers gleaming in the sun. They had a shotgun wedding. Why his wife was late was a mystery to him until someone explained it to him. Peanut is purple. He has a shock of green hair and huge red lips, open constantly in laughter. His sense of the absurd is unique, his expression of it hysterically funny. Peanut picks on everybody, laughing his head off as he does so. He especially likes to laugh at Jeff, whom he considers not too bright. Peanut thinks Jeff's name should have another syllable. Jeff-fa-fa is what he prefers to call his mentor, with the last name sounding like Dunhaaaaaam. Last in the lineup is Jose Jalapeno. On a steeeeek. Jose replies to Jeff's questions and Peanut's ribbing with a Hispanic accent and a deadpan face. Jose tries to avoid Peanut's practical jokes and Walter's farts. Jose fears Taco Bell.
