Thank god Comedy Central canceled this garbage.
24 April 2010 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

Ventriloquists are generally unfunny. It's a comedic art form that died out about a half-century ago; the fact that Jeff Dunham is so bad at ventriloquism only makes this show's existence even more insulting.

I don't know how he managed to lure so many people in with his "specials" and break so many records in the process, but he's a pretty crappy comedian and an even worse ventriloquist. (Honestly, half his face moves when the puppets are "talking.") His comedic taste is on par with the Larry the Cable Guys of this world. The premiere episode of this show featured a special guest appearance by...Brooke Hogan. 'Nuff said.

It's unbearably unfunny and barely tolerable. Thankfully, despite a record-breaking debut episode, Comedy Central canned this trash after its scathing reviews (check out MetaCritic's score) and declining ratings.

Unfortunately, I doubt this is the last we'll see of Jeff Dunham.
