For most people, being caught in an enclosed space with either a terrorist or a ventriloquist would qualify as a hostage situation. But Jeff Dunham, a ventriloquist, is perhaps the most popular stand-up comedian in the U.S. And he broke through by playing straight man to a terrorist — a fiberglass one.
I’ve always said Jeff was a comic genius. He lets the “dummy” say all the politically incorrect stuff and then pretends he’s offended. One of his best lines comes from an Achmed sketch, “Killing people is easy, being politically correct is a pain in the a**”
