Jeff Dunham & Walter

In the world of entertainment, one form of act is as old as Methuselah itself. For centuries, people have always been amused at the antics performed by a man (or woman) and their dummy. The ventriliquist has always been a favourite of people of all ages.

Some of the best included Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthey, Paul Winchell and Jerry Mahoney, and Shari Lewis with Lambchop. Over the last few years, a newcomer has climbed the ladder of success with a wide array of characters which include an alian (Peanut), a dead terrorist (Achmed), a jalapeno on a stick, as well as a few others.

His name is Jeff Dunham and my favourite character of his is without a doubt, the irascible, quick-witted Walter. Walter is a retiree who just can't seem to get along with anyone and hates seeing his wife enjoy herself. Here in the following clip is Jeff Dunham and Walter.
