“Sidesplitting”? Really?

The man whose standup concerts rule the comedy world, Jeff Dunham, will be coming to the Roanoke Civic Center on Sunday, December 11 at 5:00 p.m.  Dunham’s sidesplitting performances have made him the top grossing live comedian in North America for three consecutive years as well as the last two worldwide. Now his ever-growing legions of devoted fans have the chance to see him again.  In the coming months, concertgoers will meet two new Dunham characters: Achmed Junior, the not-as-equally skeletal son of Achmed the Dead Terrorist, and Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself.”

This makes me cry for comedy.  Firstly, dude is not funny.  Secondly, his material isn’t edgy – it’s racist and offensive.

I know as a fan of comedy I should support his right to develop asshat material, but can’t get behind shit like this.  What crawls up my ass and lays eggs is the fact that he’s ostensibly the TOP GROSSING COMIC ON LIVE TOUR.  For THREE YEARS.

There are so many funny people out there, but we’re paying good folding money for this.
