Jeff Dunham and one of his most famous characters, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, are coming to Milwaukee early next year.

Comedian Jeff Dunham coming to the BMO Harris Bradley Center

The BMO Harris Bradley Center announced today that stand-up comedian and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham is coming to town Feb. 6, 2014 as a part of his "Disorderly Conduct" world tour.

Dunham is most known for his various puppet characters, most notably Achmed the Dead Terrorist and Walter. He and his puppets were also the stars of "The Jeff Dunham Show" on Comedy Central, which lasted for seven episodes back in 2009.

Dunham is no stranger to Milwaukee. Last year, he was one of the main stage performers at the Wisconsin State Fair, and he taped one of his comedy shows, "Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special" from 2008, at The Pabst Theater.

Tickets will go on sale starting Friday, Oct. 4 at 10 a.m.

Waste of money. This guy is about as funny as the Blue Collar "comedians." And by funny I mean so dreadfully, painfully NOT funny. And also, ventriloquists in general are just creepy.

Was entertaining before, but has become a steady stream of mostly racist jokes. Will only be good if he came up with new material that goes beyond that vapid crap.
