Meeting Jeff Dunham

January 17th, 2011 | Posted in General

Jeff and I backstage after his show in Duluth, MN

Since this summer I’ve been working on several illustration projects for world famous comedian/ventriloquist Jeff Dunham. Yesterday The Lovely Anna and my two youngest kids The Effervescent Gabrielle and Number One Son Thomas met my college student daughter The Dramatic Victoria and her boyfriend Pat in Duluth where we caught Jeff’s touring show. It was great fun and fantastic to finally meet Jeff after all the communicating we’ve been doing on our projects. A very funny show by a very funny guy.

Sorry I can’t be more specific about the work I’m doing for him, but it has been some fun and interesting stuff.

    That’s awesome! He’s hilarious! Brandee and I caught his show last summer. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on.

    Nice pic, Tom! My cousin Marge Engesser was the writer and producer for a documentary her husband Bryan Simon directed titled “I’m No Dummy” starring Jeff and several other talented ventriloquists. It’s put out by Monitvagus Productions and well worth seeing…good comedy! Hey, the Pack is back and the Bears still SUCK:)

    Didn’t he star in 24?

    I hope he got your autograph! 🙂
