ABC’s Nightline profile of Jeff Dunham

You may know that Jeff Dunham is making more money than any other stand-up comedian working the road today. Except Dunham is a ventriloquist.

You knew that, though, right? ABC News profiled Dunham last night for Nightline, and you may learn a few other things about him. I knew that he already was making millions a decade ago, and that YouTube multiplied that ten and twenty times over. I didn't know that he had a workshed in his tour bus. Dunham also explains, once again, that his critics are not only missing the point, but criticizing the thing that his audiences love the most about his act. What that says about him, and us, however, is worth considering for more than a moment.

In the meantime, roll the clip!
