“Jeff Dunham: All Over the Map” follows the comedian, along with Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Peanut, José Jalapeño, Bubba J and Walter, as they embark on an unprecedented world tour across five continents. Along the way, Dunham encounters obstacles from being forbidden to bring Achmed on stage in Malaysia, to the possibility of imprisonment for telling a joke deemed offensive in Singapore or the United Arab Emirates. Dunham’s stand-up is interspersed with segments showcasing the funny and unique people and sights these cities have to offer.

Dunham has been called “the most popular comedian in the United States” by Time Magazine, and has been named toForbes’ Celebrity 100 list of most powerful entertainers three years running. His entourage of signature characters includes Walter, the grumpy retiree; the beer-swilling, NASCAR-loving and resolutely red neck Bubba J; the furry and manic Peanut; José Jalapeño, the spicy pepper from South of the border; the bumbling skeletal Achmed the Dead Terrorist; the almost-as-dead, long-lost son of Achmed, AJ; and Peanut’s own ventriloquist dummy: Little Jeff.
Dunham’s one-hour Comedy Central specials include “Arguing With Myself,” “Spark of Insanity,” “A Very Special Christmas Special,” “Controlled Chaos” and “Minding the Monsters,” which was watched by 5 million viewers, making it the most-watched broadcast of the year for the network. Dunham has made frequent appearances on “The Tonight Show” and “Late Night with David Letterman,” and has also made many cameo appearances across television and film, from the Emmy®-winning comedy series “30 Rock,” to “Dinner For Schmucks,” starring Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd. Most recently, he lent his voice to the animated feature film “Nut Job,” which also stars Liam Neeson and Brendan Fraser.
Named the top-grossing live comedy act in the world in 2009 and 2010 by Pollstar, the concert industry trade magazine, Dunham has sold out stadium-sized shows across three continents, from the United Kingdom to Sydney, Toronto to Copenhagen. In late 2010, Dunham released his autobiography, “All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed and Me,” which immediately landed on The New York Times best-seller list. On November 28, Dunham kicks off his first ever residency in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino with his new show “Jeff Dunham: Not Playing with a Full Deck.”
“Jeff Dunham: All Over the Map” is executive produced by Dunham, Judi Brown-Marmel, Robert Hartmann and Stu Schreiberg.
