Jeff Dunham 

When: Thu., Jan. 24, 7:30 p.m. 2013

What: To get to the heart of Jeff Dunham's comedy, you've got to get to the heart cultural stereotypes — and that's a slippery slope. The talented ventriloquist gives life to puppets of varying cultures and ethnicities (e.g., Achmed the Dead Terrorist, José Jalapeño on a Stick, and Bubba J, a redneck from the South, to name a few), but falls short of reaching any kind of middle ground by avoiding characters that mock his own background: conservative Christian. That's not so funny to us, but those willing to turn the other cheek can witness the miracle of Dunham's lips not moving at Time Warner Cable Arena, where he'll visit for a one-night-only performance in the Q.C.
