On my bucket list forever has been to see Jeff Dunham perform live. I love his entire cast of characters and laugh out loud when I trip across one of his shows on the Comedy Channel but never have I bought tickets…until now. Yay!
Achmed the Dead Terrorist is one of his funniest voices, and that Jeff (and Achmed) can make a crowd in Dubai laugh out loud is a testament to Jeff’s understanding of comedy and that pretty much anything is allowed to be made fun of.
His character Walter is a pretty convincing curmudgeon. Take my word for it. Walter has his own view on the 2016 election. Funny.
The concert is at the Mohegan Sun (ugh) but I figure I’ll go a little early and people watch. Okay, and maybe put a coin or two in the slots. I’ve been to Foxwoods like twice in my life, never Mohegan, but I expect I’ll see the same crowd of old people betting money they don’t have. Hey, come to think of it, I’ll fit right in. And maybe I’ll hit it big and get bumped up from my hotel room in the corner on the back to the presidential suite. About the same odds as winning tonight’s MegaMillions, but hey…..
Not a whole lot of good seats were left for the event so I’m not exactly going to see Jeff up- close and personal, but I will be there and I can’t wait. Life is too short to have anything on the bucket list and not at least try and scratch it off. Agree?
