I have to say that even though I pre-ordered this DVD with great anticipation, I could not help but be disappointed when I finally got to watch it. Jeff Dunham's previous two DVDs, 'Arguing With Myself' and 'Spark of Insanity' were characterized by quick wit, clever writing and lots of energy on stage. However, this time around his act suffers severely from a lack of energy and enthusiasm, along with horrific pacing of routines. There are several times during the show where he simply does nothing on stage and draws laughter from the audience by looking like he can't remember his lines. While that may work with a live audience, it's completely ineffective against people watching a DVD because the atmosphere of the performance cannot be conveyed the same way through TV as it can be in person. In the end, it just seems like he's trying to draw out the performance and cheat us out of time when we could be hearing his great jokes.

The performance is most drawn out during Achmed the Dead Terrorist's routine where they call 'Guitar Guy' out to help Achmed perform the song 'Jingle Bombs.' Several minutes pass between the introduction of the musician and the start of the song because the whole performance gets derailed and ruins the pacing of the routine. During the song itself, huge gaps of space between verses filled with only semi-funny remarks devalue the song as a whole, and while gaps between verses were to be expected from Achmed's original online performance of the song, the performance on the DVD had such big gaps that no bridge could stretch long enough to connect them.

Walter's routine is solid, despite a noticeable drop in energetic bitterness that we like to see from the old geezer.

When this DVD first came out I was very excited to get my hands on it as I've always enjoyed Jeff Dunham's comedy. Unfortunately it fell very short of what I was expecting. The comedy is very dry and drawn out, and the repetition in which it is presented is very disappointing. Stick to the other great DVDs that have been released by him : Arguing With Myself & Spark Of Insanity.

This particular DVD is very disappointing. The reason being that the entire show is bleeped. The uncensored version is not an option on this
DVD which is unlike all the others. The whole point of this comedy is the manner of which they speak and with beeps through out the entire show you can not make out the line nor the joke. Unless this is just a defective DVD it is not at all like the rest. This appears to be the television version unlike other DVD's which are never bleeped out nor censored. This comedy is mild and I can not understand why it is censored to begin with. I see and hear worse on kids TV !

OMG this CD is soooo funny. I recommend it to anyone who needs cheering up. You will really get so many laughs,
as always with Jeff Dunham. I watched this on New Years Eve to get me though the evening without feeling
depressed as I am a recent widow & New Years Eve is a very rough evening to get through, but Jeff Dunham did
it for me with his puppets. I just kept laughing so much I had a stomach ache! Anyone who is feeling down, alone or
depressed needs to tune in to Jeff Dunham, to feel good before you know it!

The gang's all here for this very funny 2008 Christmas special filmed at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, Wisconsin - Walter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, Peanut, Jose the Jalapeño on a Stick, and of course Jeff Dunham himself. It goes without saying that you're going to be very entertained by Jeff Dunham's Very Special Christmas Special. There will be more jokes than you can throw a jalapeño on a stick at, comic banter that only the most talented of ventriloquists would even attempt to pull off, a reading of - with commentary by Peanut -The Night Before Christmas, and a couple of great Christmas songs. I must admit the show wasn't quite as funny as I expected, but I think this has a lot to do with the fact that I was already quite familiar with all of Dunham's characters.

Dunham opens the show with a monologue of about ten or eleven minutes. It's a little strange to see him without a puppet, but he does prove that he can be funny on his own - albeit not as funny as he is with his special friends. Fan favorites Walter and Achmed the Dead Terrorist get the most time on stage. Dunham has only limited success in getting the curmudgeonly Walter into the Christmas spirit, but Achmed ends up entertaining all of us infidels with a great Jingle Bells parody called Jingle Bombs. Next up, and straight from the trailer park, is Bubba J, who gives Achmed quite a run for his money with his own Christmas classic, Roadkill Christmas. Of course, you can't have a Jeff Dunham show without Peanut there to liven things up, and then Jose the Jalapeño on a Stick joins both Jeff and Peanut onstage.
