Hilarious comic headlines the Arena on May 26th

One of the most successful comedians in the world today, Jeff Dunham, returns to Mohegan Sun Arena in support of his latest stand-up special Controlled Chaos on Saturday, May 26th at 8:00pm.
Tickets are $60.00 and $50.00 and are on sale now through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets are now also available at the Mohegan Sun Box Office, subject to availability.
His limited-series commitment, The Jeff Dunham Show, premiered as the highest rated series in Comedy Central history with 5.3 million viewers in its initial airing.  The DVD was released in May of 2010 and sold more than 100,000 units within the first four weeks.
In late 2010, Dunham released his autobiography, All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed and Me, which immediately landed on the New York Times best-seller list.  Dunham’s personal story is often interrupted by his characters who are quick to dispute Dunham’s recollection of their history together.   
Dunham has also made many cameo appearances across television and film, from the Emmy-winning comedy series 30 Rock, to the Jay Roach-directed comedy Dinner For Schmucks, starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd.
The beginning of 2011 saw Jeff launch his third multi-country European tour, on which he set venue firsts selling out shows at the largest indoor venues in Holland and Belgium, the latter for a total of 24,000 tickets over 2 nights.  After stops in Denmark and Norway, Jeff wrapped with his French debut at the L’Olympia in Paris, the first show by an international comedian at France’s most prestigious venue since Jerry Lewis performed there.
As an entertainer, Jeff Dunham has truly impacted popular culture, and his character catchphrases, such as Achmed’s “Silence! I Keel You!” and José Jalapeño’s “On A Steek.” are now part of our vernacular, much to the delight of multi-generational audiences worldwide.
Mohegan Sun Arena is ranked the 5th best venue in the world by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 and 2010 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.”  Venues Today also ranked Mohegan Sun Arena #4 in 2011.
