BIO Channel is excited to announce the premiere of Jeff Dunham: Birth of a Dummy, a two-hour special that explores the life of the entertainer who single-handedly made ventriloquism hip again.
Dunham, who began practicing ventriloquism at the age of 8, is now the highest-grossing comedian in the United States—a record he’s held for the last three years. He has also been the top-grossing comedian in the world for the last two years; his television specials have generated record ratings; and his material on YouTube has seen a half-billion downloads worldwide.
Jeff Dunham: Birth of a Dummy makes its television debut on Tuesday, November 22 at 8PM EST and 9PM PST. In addition to exclusive interviews from Dunham, the special will feature original interviews from Dunham’s family and friends, as well as a behind-the-scenes look at the process behind the creation of Dunham’s latest character, Achmed Junior. Finally, viewers will get front-row seats to the on-stage dynamics between Dunham and his dysfunctional family of original comic characters including Walter, Peanut, Achmed, Jose and, for the first time, Achmed Junior.
