Dunham has just released his next Netflix Originals Stand-up Special, Jeff Dunham: Beside Himself, taped June 21st and 22nd at the American Airlines Center in his hometown of Dallas, TX. Following the success of 2017’s Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster, the new show is Dunham’s second special for Netflix Originals, and the ninth in his impressive string of record-breaking stand up television events.
Dunham has built an entertainment empire over years of non-stop touring and performance innovation. With 10 million followers on Facebook and over 2.1 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 NBC, Netflix and Comedy Central. His astonishing arena-packing power has put him on par with major music acts such as Luke Bryan and Metallica.
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 stand-up 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 stand-up 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.
Dunham has made many cameo appearances across television and film, from the Emmy Award-winning comedy series 30 Rock, Angie Tribeca and Dinner for Schmucks, starring Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd. His autobiography, All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed and Me, was on the New York Times’ Best Seller list three weeks in a row. Dunham has also been awarded Billboard’s “Top Comedy Tour” for three years based on box office sales.
Adding to an amazing list of recent accomplishments, 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,” commemorating over two decades of superstardom.
Mohegan Sun Arena is now ranked consistently among the top venues in the world according to Billboard Magazine, Pollstar and VenuesNow. Mohegan Sun Arena is consistently ranked among the top three “Arenas in the World for its Size” and top 15 in the “World for All Size Venues.” The award – winning venue is the “#1 Casino Venue in the World,” “#1 Social Media Venue in the World” and a seven – time national award – winner for “Arena of the Year.” For more information on concerts and other great events, visit Mohegan Sun.
