This two-hour special includes rare performance footage, home videos, original interviews with Jeff and those who know him best, as well as sold-out performances featuring Walter, Peanut, Achmed, Jose, and the rest of his cast of characters. And, for the first time ever, we'll go behind-the-scenes to see Jeff create, build, and perform a brand new character, Achmed Junior.
