Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham’s show that was cancelled at Abbotsford Centre twice last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been rescheduled for Thursday, Nov. 4 at 7 p.m.
The show had originally been set to take place on April 22, 2020 and then on Dec. 2, 2020 as part of Dunham’s “Seriously?” tour. Fans who had tickets are encouraged to retain them, as they will be valid for the new date.
Dunham last performed live on March 8, 2020 in Florida.
For the past 12 years, Dunham and his somewhat-inappropriate proteges Peanut, Walter, Jose Jalapeno, Bubba J. and Achmed the Dead Terrorist have filled arenas across the U.S. and the world.
Dunham has built an entertainment empire over more than 30 years of non-stop touring and performance innovation.
With 10 million followers on Facebook and two million YouTube subscribers, amassing well over a billion views, the comedian/ventriloquist has carved out his own unique space in the comedy world.
His accomplishments have led to record-breaking viewership with his standup specials on Netflix, NBC, and Comedy Central.
A Texas native, after graduating from Baylor University, Dunham moved to Los Angeles and soon became a sensation on the national comedy club circuit.
He later conquered the comedy world by becoming a multi-platinum-selling DVD artist and achieving record-breaking ratings on both cable and network TV.
His 2015 standup special, Unhinged in Hollywood, debuted on NBC Primetime and ranked as the time period’s top non-sports program on the Big 4 in every key measure.
The special was re-broadcast on Comedy Central and was the top-rated special of the year for the entire network.
Dunham’s previous standup specials – Arguing with Myself, Spark of Insanity A Very Special Christmas, Controlled Chaos, Minding the Monsters, and All Over the Map – have garnered record-breaking numbers by either claiming “most watched” or “highest rated” on Comedy Central.
His autobiography – All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed and Me – was on the New York Times’ Bestseller list three weeks in a row.
Dunham has also been awarded Billboard’s Top Comedy Tour for three years based on box office sales.
Dunham’s contribution to the world of show business and comedy was recognized in 2017, when he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Dunham has appeared in Abbotsford several times, most recently in 2018.
Tickets are $63 and are available at ticketmaster.ca.
