Jeff Dunham Returns to Australia!

Hailed as one of the most influential comedians and ventriloquists in the world today, Jeff Dunham is returning to Australia to bring alive his hilarious & world famous characters.

His television specials and series have been the highest rated programming in Comedy Central history, his DVD sales have reached seven million units, his videos have received a half a billion views on You Tube, and his live concerts have become mega-events played in front of sold-out arenas worldwide.

No wonder Time Magazine wrote that he is “the most popular comedian in the United States” and Forbes named him to its Celebrity 100 list of most powerful entertainers three years running.

Jeff Dunham’s Disorderly Conduct Tour offers his global fan base a brand new show packed with more laughs than ever before. Dunham’s famed troupe of sidekicks are back: 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 José Jalapeño, and Peanut’s own ventriloquist dummy Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself. They may have all been conceived and hand crafted by Dunham, but his characters, who are anything but dummies, have now taken on a life of their own, each with their own legion of fans.

Don’t miss your chance to see Jeff Dunham LIVE!

Daniel O'Donnell to Return to Australia & New Zealand!

Ireland's most popular "easy listening" entertainer returns to Australia in March 2014.

Daniel has enjoyed tour and chart success in Australia and New Zealand for a number of years and earned himself a loyal following that stretches across both countries.

Daniel, who was awarded an Honorary MBE in 2002 for services to the music industry, has an immense chart history with both record and video sales. To date he has had 20 UK chart albums and 14 UK Top 10 music videos. His most current video release “Songs Of Faith” topped the UK music charts. He is the only artist to feature in the UK album charts each of the last 20 years! Daniel has also received great chart success in Australia with his Showtime DVD reaching No. 6 and his album ”The Jukebox Years” reached No. 36 on the ARIA charts.

A native of Kincasslagh, Co. Donegal, Daniel's concert appearances have taken him from London's Royal Albert Hall and Dublin's Point Depot to New York's Carnegie Hall and Sydney's Opera House, but he still continues to set himself fresh ambitions and new worlds to conquer.
