Jeff Dunham’s 100-city Controlled Chaos tour will stop in Abbotsford on March 23.

The tour offers fans some brand new laughs and new additions to his troupe of sidekicks that include: Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J. and the manic purple creature Peanut.

These new creations include Achmed Junior, the not-as-equally skeletal son of Achmed the Dead Terrorist, and Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ventriloquist.

Dunham has quickly become a hit on the comedy tour circuit. He has received numerous awards and accolades, including being named “the most successful comedian working in America,” by the New York Times and was named Pollstar’s #1 Comedy Tour in North America for three years in a row.

He has also authoured a best-selling autobiography titled All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, And Me.

The show takes place at 8 p.m. at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre (33800 King Rd.).
