Dunham uses seven different puppets in his acts, known as the famous “suitcase posse” among his fans. The ‘suitcase posse’ consists of an old and out of touch curmudgeon Walter; who is outspoken about the things he hates. Arguably one of his most famous puppets is a suicide bomber-turned skeleton Achmed the Dead Terrorist; who shouts angry threats at American audiences. The famous Peanut; A hyperactive purple ‘woozle’, Jose Jalapeno; literally a talking jalapeno pepper who punctuates almost every sentence with the famous phrase ‘on a stick’, A dim witted redneck Bubba J; who loves drinking beer and watching NASCAR, A low-rent wannabe Melvin the Superhero, and Dunham’s manager Sweet Daddy D; an African puppet with little tolerance for Caucasians. Dunham and his ‘suitcase posse’ have sold out clubs and theaters nationwide and released three stand-up specials and one album of Christmas songs.
Other than the appearances on TV Shows, and after nearly twenty years in stand-up comedy, Dunham finally recorded and released his first stand-up special, ‘Arguing With Myself’ in 2006. A year later, his second stand-up special, ‘Spark of Insanity’, premiered on Comedy Central which was also released on DVD shortly thereafter. In 2008, Dunham came up with his third Comedy Central special, ‘Jeff Dunham’s Very Special Christmas Special’, an hour of holiday theme stand-up, which was seen by 6.6 million people, setting new record of viewership on Comedy Central. It became the highest-rated show in the network’s history and Dunham was voted number one on Comedy Central’s ‘Stand-up Showdown’ the same year.
