I know that many people, including myself, are skeptical of ventriloquism. Is what they’re doing even real?

Then there are people that just find the ventriloquist doll flat-out creepy.

Remember The Twilight Zone episode called “The Dummy”?

Or maybe you’re on the younger side and remember Slappy the Dummy from “Goosebumps”.

Either way, these are definitely creepy.

But there are some ventriloquist dummies that aren’t so creepy and can actually make you laugh (or it’s the ventriloquist that’s the comedian?).

If you’ve never heard of ventriloquist/comedian Jeff Dunham, stop what you’re doing (when you’re done reading this) and go watch his “Arguing With Myself” show. You will laugh for hours.

*Just please be aware there is adult language and it’s not something you want to watch in front of your kids.*

Jeff has multiple characters he brings out on stage from his sidekick Peanut to Walter the old curmudgeon and José Jalapeño on a Stick among others.

Each one has its own personality and own style of comedy and I promise, you will find every single one of them hilarious. Now keep in mind that most of their shtick is politically incorrect but what comic isn’t these days?

Now that you’re caught up, you can see Jeff Dunham (and Peanut, Walter, and José Jalapeño) on their “Seriously?” tour on two different nights in New Jersey this fall.

He will be appearing at Ovation Hall at Ocean Casino Resort in Altantic City on Saturday, Sept 3. The show starts at 8 p.m. and there aren’t many tickets left. You can find them HERE.

He will then appear at the Cure Insurance Arena in Trenton on Sunday, October 23 at 3 p.m.

This show also has limited tickets available. Find them HERE.

It’s not often you get the opportunity to see a ventriloquist comedian live and Jeff Dunham is definitely worth it.
