He was a little worried Achmed might be too edgy -- "too popular," is more like it. I was more worried about Dunham paying someone to stand in line to get him the new $400 iPhone that was just released. Good thing Dunham stayed with his Achmed character. A half billion hits later on YouTube, I think Dunham is doing OK.

  • Jeff Dunham currently occupies a space that few human beings ever manage to reach: He's at the absolute top of his profession.

Known from his Comedy Central specials, Dunham has even had a best- selling autobiography, "All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, and Me," in which he recounted his rise to arena-sized venues from the first public performances he did as a fourth-grader in Dallas for just $5 a show.

TIME magazine, meanwhile, noted of the ventriloquist and comedian's wildly popular characters, like Achmed the Dead Terrorist and Jose Jalape o on a stick, "all of them are politically incorrect, gratuitously insulting and ill tempered. The "mega" quality is apt to describe Dunham's success as he is one of the top-grossing acts in North America and Europe.

  • Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham traffics in the kind of politically incorrect utterances that recently landed a certain senator from Nevada in hot water. But nobody calls Dunham on it.
