Dunham hand-crafts each character personally from conception to the final coat of paint then brings them to life on stage. His beloved troupe of sidekicks are: 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 Jose Jalapeno and Little Jeff, a mini-version of the ringmaster himself. 

Dunham has carved a unique corner in the comedy world that’s as funny as it is popular.
