I think he's hilarious but I think a comedy central show would be milking his success. Most comedy central shows only last a couple months, though.

His stuff is pretty funny. I saw him live in March, down in SE Texas. It was embarrassing when he brought out the redneck puppet Bubba J, and not exaggerating, over 90% of the crowd were telling the jokes along with him. Makes me slightly ashamed to be from the south. =(

No.

He is a hilarious stand-up comedian, but shows like that don't work out well.

Isn't it if you do a Comedy Central Special, you get the right to a show?


Either way I'm interested on how he can even put on a show without it being small stand-ups with each puppet. That would get pretty boring.

He is probably gonna end up like Dimitri Martin or Daniel Tosh. After one season, its over.

to see what his show will be like lets compare.

Mind of Mencia lasted awhile, but every sketch was built off of a joke we'd all heard before.

Important Thigns with Demetri Martin? Boring. His comedy is good at standup because of how he presents it and for whatever reason it doesn't translate the same way on sketches.

Tosh.0? While it's not horrible, they really could have gotten ANYONE to do that show.


I don't see it being good, lasting long, or being all that good for his career.

I was disappoint with Dimitri's show. It sucked so badly

Michael and Michael Have Issues is actually a really funny show. It looks like some comedians can do it right.

I really don't see what's funny about Jeff Dunham. Sure, he's a great ventriloquist, but how is, "I KEEL YOU!", even remotely funny? I've seen the material with the other puppets as well, and it's just not that good.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

you have no idea how much times I was outside and every single one of my friends eventually told me the "I KEEL YOU" thing. I wanted to hit them, males and females.

His only funny puppet is walter or whatever the old guy is and his pimp manager (even though as far as I know it has only been used once.) Everything else only occasionally has a funny moment or just flat out fails (fuck you jose jalapeno)

He's funny, but not as funny as everyone says he is.

I usually love Dimitri Martin, but that show didn't really grab me. There were some parts that made me literally rofl and some parts that were just got a chuckle.

He is so ungodly unfunny, this show will be more of a flop than the previous 7 attempts at going from comedian to show host by Comedy Central.

I can't say I'm a big fan of comedy period.

I can stand sitcoms, but I can't stand stuff that really TRIES to be funny all the time.

I think Dunham is one of the more creative comedians out there especially with all his dolls.

I really hope you're being sarcastic. And I laughed at "dolls".

That's the problem. I was a fan of Jeff Dunham before EVERYONE fucking knew about him. Now he sucks, I hate to admit. Oh, how the mighty have fallen
