  3. I am not up to date on comedians. I mean, I like a good laugh. Who doesn’t? But vulgarity and cursing are a huge turn off for me. Would you say Jeff Dunham is clean comedy? If so, I would be interested in watching him. ~Jennifer

  4. He is hilarious! I had a friend go see him before he got famous. She got the tickets for free from someone and went and had no clue who he was! She stood at the stage and he used her throughout his act! Too funny!!! LifeAsLex

  5. I recently saw him on another blog lately and on comedy central. He’s pretty funny!

  6. It looks like this comedian has quite a few characters up his sleeve – sounds like he puts on a fun show! I’ve never personally seen one before.

  7. My husband and I watched one of his comedy specials a few years ago–he’s quite funny! Would love to attend one of his live shows!
