Funnier Than Previous Dunham MaterialSep 27, 2007
By Stephen R. Finney
Spark of Insanity was far funnier than any previous shows in Which I have seen Jeff Dunham and his puppets. Contrary to the one negative opinion I have read about the performance, I didn't have to gauge the reactions of audience members to know when it was time to laugh. It was very funny, and I must say that his tackling an issue, such as terrorism, with comedy, was funnier than I would have even thought it would be. Dunham is a very talented ventriloquist, with a fine sense of comedic timing. I feel sorry for anyone who can't get a laugh out Spark of Insanity, their sense of humor is irreparably broken. Buy it, see it, enjoy it!

Who is this guy?Jan 02, 2008

"It's always Happy Hour here"
Okay, so I don't get around much; I don't watch Comedy Central; and I had never heard of Jeff Dunham. And up until a few days ago I thought of ventriloquism as about as hokey as middle school hootenanny; but then I was given Dunham's SPARK OF INSANITY as a Yuletide present (by my highly signficant other). . .
I am a changed curmudgeon.
Ladies and gents, this is funny, funny stuff, and I'm not talking about chuckling funny--I'm talking about rolling on the floor funny. Dunham and his "suitcase posse" of colorful characters (and an old curmudgeon like me sure appreciates Walter) tackle a plethora of topics--many of them devoutly controversial. But Dunham (and friends) gets away with controversy, because everything is fair game and no one is spared. Heck, forget the puppets; Dunham's opening monologue is hysterical.
When a comedian can make his audience forget their troubles and just enjoy the entertainment for its own sake, said comedian has achieved pure comedic bliss. And Jeff Dunham does just that; SPARK OF INSANITY is well worth the viewing, time and time again.

Funnier than the first DVD!Sep 26, 2007
By H. Mayson
I've been a fan of Jeff and company since high school. I remember seeing him on "An Evening at the Improv" which aired on A&E and on another comedy program that aired on VH1; I would tape these segments then make my friends watch them. They became fans of Jeff and Peanut, too.
I thought this DVD was funnier than the "Arguing with Myself" one. I loved the Dead Terrorist. This program aired on Comedy Central and the DVD features some additional footage that didn't appear on Comedy Central. The bonus features on the DVD are great. It was interesting to see the development of Melvin, and Walter's "announcement" was fabulous. This DVD is a must have for any fan of Jeff and gang.

Achmed the Dead TerroristAug 23, 2007
My husband and I just saw Jeff's show this past Saturday in Mass. It was fantastic! Achmed the Dead Terrorist is hysterical! He goes right to the edge with a politically sensitive subject. And, of course, Walter, Peanut, and Jose are just as great as ever. We have his first DVD and are always showing it to people who haven't been indoctrinated. No matter how many times we see it, we laugh just as hard as the first time. We are looking forward to this new DVD to have in our house when we need a Jeff 'fix'.

Wonderfully funnySep 13, 2007
By J. Toney
I was fortunate to see this show live in Newport Kentucky back in July and have been anxiously awaiting the release of the DVD. Jeff and company are totally hilarious and I did not stop laughing the entire show. I love a comedian that can bring on laughing tears. Of course Walter is my favorite, but his new additions bring a new spark to the show.
