America's favorite ventriloquist, Jeff Dunham, is bringing his cast of characters to Knoxville.

Dunham holds the Guinness World Record holder for Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-up Comedy Tour, and has more than a million YouTube subscribers and billion views. He's taped comedy specials for Comedy Central and NBC and his 2015 standup special, Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood, debuted on NBC Prime-time in the fall ranked as the time period's top non-sports program on the Big 4 in every key measure.

Dunham recently released his latest stand-up special, "Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster", on Netflix. The special features Dunham along with his ill-behaved and slightly demented posse of characters — Walter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, and Peanut — for a gleeful skewering of family and politics.

Dunham's contribution to the world of show business was recognized on Sept. 21 when he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, commemorating over two decades of super-stardom.
