Ventriloquist Dunham returns to Delaware State Fair

HARRINGTON – Jeff Dunham, the popular comic/ventriloquist, will return to the M&T Bank Grandstand at the 2016 Delaware State Fair on July 23.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at www.delawarestatefair.com as his “Perfectly Unbalanced” International Tour stops in Harrington at 8 p.m. Gates will open at 7. Ticket prices are $44 – $59. He last appeared at the fair in 2013.

In November of 2014 Mr. Dunham and his sidekicks began their six-month residency at Planet Hollywood Resort Dunham by . and Casino in Las Vegas. By overwhelming popular demand “Not Playing with a Full Deck” was held over through October 2015.

Mr. Dunham hand-crafts each character personally from conception to the final coat of paint then brings them to life on stage. His troupe of sidekicks are: Walter the Grumpy Retiree, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, the beer-fueled redneck Bubba J, the manic purple creature Peanut, the spicy pepper from south of the border Jose Jalapeno and Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself.

The comedian has literally been all over the map, visiting five continents and twelve countries including the UK, South Africa, Australia, the Middle East, and Asia where he continuously performed to sold-out arenas.

“We are excited to have Jeff back with his new tour,” said Danny Aguilar, Assistant General Manager at the Delaware State Fair, “We’re looking forward to another sold out crowd for a night of fun and lots of laughs.”

The 2016 Delaware State Fair will be held July 21 – 30.
