Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster is a stand-up comedy special that was released on Netflix in 2017. The show is hosted by famous ventriloquist Jeff Dunham, who presents his popular puppets in a hilarious way. The show focuses on Dunham's family and how they react to his success as well as his unique sense of humor. The show is filmed in front of a live audience in Dublin, Ireland, and features a mix of new and classic jokes, different puppets and some interesting exchanges with the crowd. After an intro that features a combination of scenes from Dunham's shows, from the ones on TV to those he did at the military bases, the lights come up and Dunham makes his appearance on stage with older characters like Walter the grumpy old man, Peanut the purple monkey, and Achmed the Dead Terrorist. He immediately starts cracking jokes about his surroundings in Ireland, the audience and his own family members. He uses his puppets to bring to life different aspects of his life, and to aid in telling the story of his family. Jeff talks about his wife, his kids, his kids' friends, and even talks about his newborn child born from his third wife, while saying he would've gladly stopped with just the first one but the conversation of the son was interesting (because his wife wants girls). Dunham shares that he has recently sold his house and is now renovating a new one. The majority of the show focuses on the problems that this has caused him and his family. The puppets Reed and Larry provide some of the most hilarious moments as they blame Dunham for everything that has gone wrong with the renovations, from the leaks in the roof to the accidentally being locked in a room. As always, Peanut and Achmed are there to provide some of the most memorable moments in the show. A few new characters are introduced, such as Dunham's own mother, who provides the crowd with some insights into Dunham's childhood. Thereâs also a new character that shakes things up a bit, a skeleton in a cowboy hat named "Skelton", who provides some unexpected humor throughout the show. In the second half of the show, Dunham focuses on his own family and how they have impacted his life. This includes his parents, his brothers, and sisters, and his own children. He talks about his siblings having babies and how he himself prepared to become a father for the third time. He jokes about how different fatherhood is now compared to when he was raising his older children. His humor isn't just about the funny things that happen to him but also about how he handles things differently from what he learned, and his fear of being a grandfather and having to keep up with the latest technology. Overall the show isn't just about the jokes, but also about Dunham's talent as a ventriloquist. He seamlessly transitions between different characters, provides hilarious exchanges between the puppets and himself, and has a unique ability to make the audience feel like they're a part of the show. This is evident through the bursts of laughter at regular intervals, showing that Dunham has just the right mix of creativity, humor, and showmanship to be one of the most successful ventriloquists in entertainment history.
