√ Tickets on sale Sept. 18

Press Release

Jeff Dunham will perform at KeyBank Center on Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2024.

One of the top touring artists of the Pollstar Era, Dunham, has consistently delivered laughs and shattered ratings with his broadcast specials, global tours, and a best-selling autobiography. His successes have been commemorated with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, as well as the Guinness Book of World Records for "Most tickets sold for a stand-up comedy tour," cementing the ventriloquist as a comedy icon.

Dunham’s new one-hour Comedy Central Special, “Me the People,” premiered on November 25, 2022, and became the network’s highest-rated stand-up special since his last broadcast, “Jeff Dunham’s Completely Unrehearsed Last-Minute Pandemic Holiday Special” in 2020. This marks a triumphant return to television for the comedy superstar.

He and his cast of world-famous characters announce the launch of the second leg of their 2023-24 tour, “Still Not Canceled.” Dunham’s North American trek takes the fun and laughs across the country.

A KeyBank Center venue presale will be held from 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 15, through 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 17. Tickets will go on sale to the general public Sept. 18 at www.jeffdunham.com.

After 18 years of working comedy clubs, building to theaters and ultimately to arenas, Dunham has secured his status as a global touring star, playing live to over 7,250,000 people with 1,390 performances from June 2007 through May 2022, earning the title of Billboard’s “Top Comedy Tour” for three consecutive years.

Dunham has completed nine international tours, with shows in more than 20 countries, including arenas in Canada, the U.K., Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, France, Australia, New Zealand, United Arab Emirates, Israel, Malaysia, Singapore and South Africa (where he is the highest-selling international comedian). Of note, Dunham sold over 12,000 tickets in the city of Amsterdam alone. In Iceland, 2% of the population attended his performance.

The man Slate called “America’s favorite comedian” has 11 record-breaking comedy specials to his credit and holds four of the top-five, highest-rated programs on Comedy Central:

√ “Minding the Monsters” (2012) and “Controlled Chaos” (2011) were the network’s most viewed specials of their respective years;

√ “Jeff Dunham’s Very Special Christmas Special” (2008) captured the title of Comedy Central’s highest rated program ever to date; and

√ “Jeff Dunham’s Completely Unrehearsed Last Minute Pandemic Holiday Special” (2020) marked Comedy Central’s highest-rated special in five years, garnering over 4 million views in just five days, surpassing Dunham’s own “Unhinged in Hollywood” (2015) special.

And now, Dunham’s latest Comedy Central special, “Me the People,” continues this unprecedented Dunham trend. Amassing 2.8 million viewers on its debut, delivering the best performance in its time-period since Dunham’s 2020 special debut, “Me the People” was cable’s most watched comedy special of 2022.

As a way of giving back while on tour, Dunham and his wife, Audrey, created the Jeff Dunham Family Fund, and through their organization, a portion of every ticket sold is given to various charities and charitable organizations.
