Five dates for controversial ventriloquist

Controversial, but hugely successful, comedy ventriloquist Jeff Dunham has announced five UK dates for next year.

His Seriously!? tour includes such familiar characters as José Jalapeño, a  Mexican immigrant, and Achmed the Dead Terrorist as well as new character Larry, the personal adviser to President Trump.

Dunham – who backed Trump in the 2016 presidential election  – recently released his latest stand-up special,  Beside Himself, on Netflix, his second show for the streaming service and ninth overall.

 He has 10 million followers on Facebook and more than 2.1 million YouTube subscribers, amassing well over a billion views.

Dunham starts his UK tour at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena on May 13, followed by the   Glasgow SSE Hydro, Birmingham - Resorts World Arena, London O2 Arena  and Leeds First Direct Arena on subsequent days.

This is the show that celebrated the launch of Nick Helm's album in 2016, and has previously been unseen by anyone who was not in the O2 Forum Kentish Town that night.

With typical hyperbole, the show is described thusly: 'Under-rehearsed, under-prepared and under pressure, Nick and his band somehow managed to pull together the greatest show in the last 27 years of living memory. That show went down as a thing of legend, often spoken about by weary travellers around campfires, but thought to have been lost to the sands of time forever.'
