Not so much funny-ha-ha as funny-hey-here’s-some-easy-overnight-content. Besides, how many comics do you see doing sets about jihad?

The language turns a tiny bit vinaigrette in places, so please observe this, your mild content warning.

HEY I POSTED THAT ALLAH, GIVE ME SOME LOVE ALLAH DAMNIT!

Defector01 on April 13, 2007 at 12:03 AM

I thought it was funny. Allahdamnit! This has a hint of Monty Python to it. Just a hint.

Did they say it would only be female virgins? Holy sh!t. I could have Clay Aiken.

LOL.

with a subject that ripe for hilarity (said in my best sklar brothers voice), you’d think it would have been better.

the old guy is this comic’s best puppet. good material there all the time

lorien1973 on April 13, 2007 at 12:19 AM

I got to see this guy live in Dayton once. This puppet used to be his UBL puppet I think, but I guess he feared for his life. A few times after having the puppet say something he would then have it say “Calm down, I’m not the real guy.”

In the Koran, men go to one heaven and women to another . . think about it.

Allah, I am witness to this, Defector01 needs some Love….

PinkyBigglesworth on April 13, 2007 at 12:23 AM

Haha, sweet! Something finally different than the run-of-the-mill celebrity and Fox News jokes.

emmaline1138 on April 13, 2007 at 12:25 AM

Funny as #ell!

csdeven on April 13, 2007 at 12:25 AM

I can’t wait for the reaction…….. you thought the Cartoons were bad, this is FABULOUS. Already e-mailed it to a hundred friends, it should be around the world by morning…..

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAH…..

PinkyBigglesworth on April 13, 2007 at 12:26 AM

Freaking hilarious!

LMAO! I didn’t know that.

thedecider on April 13, 2007 at 12:29 AM

Heh..the “Jalepeno on a stick” guy.

That’s pretty talented right there to be able to control a puppet’s eye brows, eyes, mouth, head, and body and project your voice at the same time…on the fly too as he was taking questions from the audience.

Queasy on April 13, 2007 at 12:30 AM

Laughing at suicide bombers and terrorists?

There’s hope yet…

wccawa on April 13, 2007 at 12:31 AM

Jeff Dunham’s actually one of my favorite comedians and his other puppets (Peanut and Walter) are really incredibly funny. He makes the characters real and you get caught up in the whole act. I saw this a couple of days ago, its made me laugh and i wanted to send it to hot air so you guys would enjoy it.

Defector01 on April 13, 2007 at 12:38 AM

Once more, with Arabic subtitles!

Kralizec on April 13, 2007 at 12:40 AM

A great premise from a talented guy. I like it and hope to see more of the same. Keep em commin Allah!

sonnyspats1 on April 13, 2007 at 12:40 AM

jeff is the best.

Mazztek on April 13, 2007 at 12:44 AM

He’s a good ventriloquist. Walter making a cameo in the skit was the funniest part.

Theworldisnotenough on April 13, 2007 at 12:48 AM

Who says it’s not funny? It IS funny; not fall down on the floor funny, but funnier that most of the BushHitler rants that take up more and more of the “comdey” shows lately

Besides, the dummy looks like a cross between John Kerry and Abe Vigoda–and it is Vigoda or Kerry who’s dead?

Janos Hunyadi on April 13, 2007 at 12:51 AM

I thought is was “Ha Ha” funny.

Helloyawl on April 13, 2007 at 1:03 AM

Nice meta-humor at the end.

spmat on April 13, 2007 at 1:04 AM

This sucks. I hate Jeff Dunham… a lot… but this had me laughing. Kudos for having the balls to enter this arena… on a stick.

askheaves on April 13, 2007 at 2:09 AM

I found this clip funny, I guess mostly because it’s the kind of humor you don’t see too often.

BJ Novak has a take on the terrorists and the 72 virgins. He also brings up the evident question: Heaven for the virgins too?

sugiero on April 13, 2007 at 3:45 AM

Defector01 on April 13, 2007 at 12:03 AM

Thanks for getting this where AP could get it to us. Awesomely funny!

csdeven on April 13, 2007 at 7:36 AM

This sucks. I hate Jeff Dunham… a lot…

You have no soul.

fusionaddict on April 13, 2007 at 8:34 AM

Ha! I saw that dude 12 years ago at college in a crowd of probably 50 people. I didn’t even know he was still around.

SouthernDem on April 13, 2007 at 8:52 AM

Not the virgins they had in mind…

JaHerer22 on April 13, 2007 at 9:13 AM

Jeff Dunham is awesome. I have a DVD of his that’s really funny.

Benaiah on April 13, 2007 at 9:15 AM

This is hilarious!

Glynn on April 13, 2007 at 9:36 AM

Not the virgins they had in mind…

JaHerer22 on April 13, 2007 at 9:13 AM

No, not at all!

Kralizec on April 13, 2007 at 9:55 AM

The suicide bomber training camp bit made me chuckle

“New guy. Thought he should practice.” “Boom.”

Dash on April 13, 2007 at 10:23 AM

the old guy is this comic’s best puppet. good material there all the time

lorien1973 on April 13, 2007 at 12:19 AM

The old guy, Walter, has a certain likeness to Joe Biden. Same squinty eyed expression, minus the hair plugs.

fogw on April 13, 2007 at 10:33 AM

Too cool.
What a way to turn around a Friday!

CBarker on April 13, 2007 at 10:38 AM

I’m surprised CAIR ain’t on him like Sharpton on a Don Imus.

eeyore on April 13, 2007 at 10:50 AM

That was OMFG funny! I forwarded it to my wife. She’s the one with the PC-meter. If I’m sleeping on the sofa tonight, all y’all’ll know why.

nukemhill on April 13, 2007 at 10:58 AM

That was great.

SILENCE!!
I keel you.
*eyebrows*

Priceless.

About friggin’ time!

Pardon me whilst I clean the snot-bubbles off my screen!

Dread Pirate Roberts VI on April 13, 2007 at 1:11 PM
