Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special is a hilarious comedy-variety show that features the ventriloquist's classic characters, along with a few holiday-themed puppets, all of which are guaranteed to leave the audience in stitches. The show was filmed live in front of a packed house at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and broadcast on Comedy Central in 2008.

Jeff Dunham, the master of ventriloquism, is the star of the show, but he is hardly alone on stage. He is joined by a host of colorful characters, each with their own unique personality and comedic style. There's Walter, the grumpy old man who always has a witty comeback; Achmed the Dead Terrorist, an inept would-be suicide bomber; Peanut, the hyperactive purple creature with a high-pitched voice; and Bubba J, the beer-swilling redneck.

In addition to these well-known characters, Jeff also introduces a few new holiday-themed puppets. There's Melvin the Superhero Guy, a Christmas-themed superhero who, as the name suggests, is not very good at his job. Also, there's José Jalapeño on a Stick, a talking jalapeño who wears a sombrero and speaks with a thick Mexican accent.

The show is a mix of stand-up comedy, sketches, and musical numbers, all tied together by the hilarious banter between Jeff and his puppets. The sketches range from Achmed's attempts to be a mall Santa to Walter's grumpy take on the holiday season. The musical numbers include a rendition of "Jingle Bombs," a holiday-themed parody of the popular song "Jingle Bells," performed by Achmed and Jeff.

One of the highlights of the show is a sketch featuring Peanut and José Jalapeño, who team up to create their own version of the popular holiday story "The Night Before Christmas." Peanut, of course, can't resist adding his own zany twist to the tale, which leads to some hilarious hijinks.

There are also a few surprise guest appearances throughout the show. Brian Haner, Jeff's friend and fellow comedian, makes an appearance as his character Guitar Guy. He joins Jeff and the puppets for a musical performance that's sure to have you tapping your feet. Additionally, country music legend Larry the Cable Guy makes a brief appearance as Bubba J's cousin.

Overall, Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special is a funny, irreverent take on the holiday season. It's not your typical family-friendly holiday special, as Jeff and his puppets are known for their sometimes crude humor, but it's sure to have you laughing out loud. The show is a reminder that sometimes it's good to let loose and take a break from the usual holiday traditions. Whether you're a fan of Jeff Dunham's comedy or just looking for a good laugh, this special is definitely worth a watch.
