No wonder The New York Times Magazine declared Jeff Dunham “the most successful comedian working in America.”  Dunham was recently named Pollstar’s #1 Comedy Tour in North America for three years running as well as their Top Worldwide Tour for the third year in a row.  In addition, Dunham’s undeniable talent placed him on Forbes magazine’s Celebrity 100 roster of most powerful entertainers for the past four years.                                              .
Dunham’s autobiography “All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, And Me” debuted in late 2010 and instantly climbed the New York Times best sellers list and achieved a Five-Star Reader Rating on Amazon.  The book candidly recounts Dunham’s amazing rise to international fame beginning with his first public performances for a mere $5.00 a show as a fourth-grader in his Dallas, TX hometown,  followed by years of intensive touring on the comedy club circuit from his college years into adulthood to becoming an international comedy phenomenon.
