Jeff Dunham is a celebrated American ventriloquist and comedian known for his popular television shows such as The Jeff Dunham Show and Jeff Dunham: Spark of Insanity, featuring famous puppets such as Walter and Achmed the Dead Terrorist. He is one of the most successful and controversial comics in the United States.
He was adopted by Joyce and Howard Dunham when he was only three months old. His first marriage was to Paige Brown in 1994. The marriage produced three children before ending in divorce in 2008. His second marriage was to nutritionist Audrey Murdick in 2012. The couple welcomed twin boys in 2015.
In 2014, while in Malaysia to perform a show, the Malaysian government told him not to use the name "Achmed" in the show. He therefore changed the name of his famous character "Achmed the Dead Terrorist" to "Jacques Merde, the Dead French Terrorist".
But the mechanics of learning to 'throw your voice' are pretty simple. Anyone with a tongue, an upper palate, teeth, and a normal speaking voice can learn ventriloquism.Jeff Dunham
When I was eight years old, I got a dummy for Christmas and started teaching myself. I got books and records and sat in front of the bathroom mirror, practising. I did my first show in the third grade and just kept going there was no reason to quit.Jeff Dunham
