University Park, Pa. — Comedian/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham will perform at 7 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21, at the Bryce Jordan Center, University Park.

Dunham's latest DVD, "Spark of Insanity," held the No. 1 spot on for 11 days, and is flying off retail shelves at a rate of 35,000 per week. Dunham has starred in one of the highest rated hourlong standup specials in Comedy Central’s history, with multiple airings every month.

Dunham, of course, never travels alone, and fans have fallen in love with his fast-talking and socially reckless "Suitcase Posse."  Among them are "Walter," the elderly, outspoken and politically incorrect curmudgeon who spouts his views on the foibles of marriage, politics and anything else that needs skewering in American culture; "Peanut," a frenzied, loudmouthed, purple, loveable imp, that Walter describes as "a Muppet on crack"; "Jose Jalapeno," a chili pepper who teamed up with Dunham after a pogo accident; and "Bubba J," a NASCAR fan.
