FORT WAYNE, Ind. – Global comedy phenomenon Jeff Dunham will bring his crew of characters to Fort Wayne and the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum on his all new “Identity Crisis” tour on Thursday, February 10, 2011.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Friday, November 5 at 10:00 a.m. at the Memorial Coliseum Ticket Office, all Ticketmaster outlets, online at www.ticketmaster.com or charge-by-phone at 800-745-3000.
Dunham is already a DVD sales phenomenon, who has sold six million copies of his four titles in America. His releases of “Spark of Insanity” and the holiday special in Canada, Great Britain, the Benelux countries, South Africa, Scandinavia and Australia have sold in excess of 200,00 copies, and his ringtones have racked up more than 300,000 in international sales.
The holiday special went to #1 on the Danish Entertainment Chart when it was released, while “Spark” hit #2 on the Dutch DVD charts and #5 on South African DVD charts — scoring against all DVD releases including best-selling movies. When “Spark” and the Christmas DVD were released in the U.K. they were the only titles by an American in the nation’s comedy Top 20.
The comedian and his crew of characters were the top-grossing international touring live comedy act in 2009 and Dunham has also been the best-selling live comedian in North America for two years in a row. Forbes magazine recently featured him as the #1 Top-Earning Comedian in the publication’s listing of America’s leading stand-up comics, and earlier this year it named him to its Celebrity 100 roster of most powerful entertainers for the second year.
On November 2, Dutton will publish Dunham’s unique autobiography, All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, and Me, with an audio book he narrates hitting stores the same day. The book details Dunham’s rise to the top of the comedy game in his own words from his humble beginnings as a child entertainer in Dallas, Texas, with additional commentary from his hilarious suitcase posse of sidekicks.
