Tuesday's Unsung Hero

In the spirit of supporting talented people who don't get the recognition they deserve, I give you Jeff Dunham.  In my opinion, ventriloquism is a lost art and its a shame there aren't more well known ventriloquists out there for our entertainment.  This guy never fails to crack me up!

Oh I love Jeff - he is hilarious! Very good at his craft.
He even guest starred on Sonny with a Chance (haha, yeah I'm a Disney channel freak..and will be till I die!).

I remember the first time I saw his Achmed routine, I about wet myself laughing so hard! Even my 14 year old loves him!

Matthew Rush said...

Can't watch this at work but I think he was on Britain's got talent or one of those shows. Very funny.

Susan Fields said...

That was so funny - thanks for sharing! It's amazing how he can talk for himself, for the puppet, move the puppet's eyes, mouth, and even eyebrows - how does he get all that coordinated???

At first I was disappointed because my kids are in bed, which meant I couldn't watch the video. But then I remember my new headphones (which aren't very good).

Then I had to put my hand in my mouth so that I didn't wake up the kids because I was laughing so hard. Thanks for making my morning!

Very funny stuff!

Fabulous, as always. Jeff cracks me up. I needed that today. ";-) Don't know if I'll be able to enter your fab contest, now; 'stuff' came up, but I'm sure it's going to be awesome.

Bethany Elizabeth said...

I know, before I saw Jeff's routine, I thought ventriloquism was kinda scary and not exactly amusing - but everytime I watch him now I can't stop giggling. :D

Emily White said...

That was hilarious! It's amazing how ventriloquists can throw their voices like that. It actually sounded like the laughing was coming from the suitcase.

Too funny!

Jaydee Morgan said...

We're all big Jeff fans here at my house. Great clip!

Janet Johnson said...

I've never actually watched a ventriloquist before. Very interesting. I admit, I watched his throat bob when he threw his voice, but still, just to be able to throw your voice. Pretty amazing.

Thanks for sharing!

Jeff is fabulous. My husband and I spent an entire night once pulling up all of his YouTube videos. We laughed until our jaws ached. I'm sure I dreamed of Jeff that night as well.

Talli Roland said...

I've seen him before somewhere and he is SO hilarious. Thanks for the laugh!

Theresa Milstein said...

I want to enter the contest, but I'm waiting for some inspiration.

Crimey said...

He's good. I haven't seen a ventriloquist in years. Definitely a fading art form.

KarenG said...

Aach so funny!! And I couldn't figure out why I wasn't seeing your posts in my dashboard. Turns out I had accidentally unfollowed you! Duh! So here I am again.

Creepy Query Girl said...

Awe! Missed you KarenG! Good to have you back:) Thanks for the comments everyone! I agree, ventriloquism needs to make a come back.
