I can't believe the show starts in half an hour and Achmed's late.

Maybe he drowned trying to visit Bin Laden's grave. (laughing)


Bubba j:
That's my name. Don't wear it out.

Bubba J?

Bubba J:
Yeah. Well, gotta go. Beer break.

Wait. Achmed's late. Keep an eye out for him.

Bubba J:
Which eye?

Where could he be?

He went from dead terrorist to Hollywood diva.

I'm telling you, the fame went to his skull.

Achmed? No way.

(engine revving)

(evil laughter) (cackling) Huh? (growls)



(engine revving)

(evil laughter)

Bubba J:
Achmed's here. I'll go park his car since there's no law against drunk parking.

Thanks, Bubba J. Good job.

Bubba J:
(loud belch) (belching continues) Whoa. ls that a hybrid?

It's the AchmedMobile, you idiot. Just be careful parking it or I keel you.

Bubba J:
Didn't hurt.

And whatever you do, don't touch the red button.

Bubba J:
Got it. Touch the red button.


(alarm blaring)


Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome to the stage, Jeff Dunham!

(cheering and applause)

Thank you. Thank you so much.

(cheering continues)

Thank you very much. Thank you very, very much.

(cheering continues)

Thank you very much. Ladies and gentlemen, it's

absolutely great to be here in lovely Richmond, Virginia.


And, you know, we- I've been doing this show all over the country, just having a blast here, there and everywhere.

The fans are great. But we've also been taking my show around the world. We've been doing shows in South Africa, Australia, three tours of Europe and the U.K.

Now they're talking about taking me to China.



How am I going to do my show in China? All I know is, if I do my show in China, there's a big chunk of my act I'm going to have to leave out.


You'll recognize it when I do it here this evening.


But it is interesting going to some of these foreign countries and doing press interviews, because some of the reporters have done their homework and care,

others just don't. For example, I was in London

talking to a guy and he was like,

(British accent): "All right, so ventriloquism- have you eliminated every other possibility of employment?"

And I have to go, "No, this is what I've done my entire life." I've never wanted to do anything else. I started very young. I was eight years old, I was in the third grade,

Christmas, 1970. Got my first dummy. There's Mom and Dad and me under the tree right there.


You can see how proud my father is.


But for years I'd look at that picture and I'd think, why does he have that expression on his face? And then if finally hit me, duh, look where the dummy's hand is. So...


Yeah, that's creepy. So I started doing shows very early.

All the way through elementary school, junior high,

high school, college. And this is what I wanted to do.

This was the future I saw. I saw it. There were a few people that didn't see it. For example, girlfriends.

They'd realize I was sincere about wanting to talk

to dummies the rest of my life, and they would dump me

immediately. I couldn't see what they saw until a few months ago. I was sitting down with my three daughters,

and we were looking at the yearbooks

from my junior high and high school years. My daughters were horrified. Why? Let me explain. I started getting paid for doing my shows in the seventh grade.

And I knew that if I was going to be a professional ventriloquist, I needed a professional photo. Now my parents were supportive, but they weren't going

to shell out the cash for that. So I thought, how am I going to get a professional picture of me and a dummy taken? And then it finally hit me, school picture day.
