    "Completely Enjoyable"

    If you love Jeff Dunham, you will love this book. I'm sure it would have been fun to read, but I've no doubt it was made even that more enjoyable by having Jeff and his dummies narrate. From my point of view, Jeff just popped up one day on my entertainment radar. Little did I know the passion, focus, and shear determination it takes for someone to reach the skill and widespread popularity he has attained. There was never a moment I was not riveted by the fluid narration and fascinating stories of his journey to stardom; I was on pins and needles as he described his first appearance on the Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, a goal he had strived to attain for 10 years. His book runs up and through his unfortunately short-lived television show in 2009. Thank you, Jeff for sharing your story.

    "All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, and Me"

    This is an enjoyable novel about Jeff's life & all the interesting happenings during it. The novel also takes you through the creation of his "little guys". Since it is red bu Jeff he deffently adds his personal touch & of course the guys add their two cents each along the way. This book is a good listen for the whole family.

    "Very Funny Autobiography!"

    I rarely write reviews but I couldn't stay silent about this audiobook. I have seen Jeff Dunham DVDs before and my family loves his humor. I was interested in how he got his start and how he developed his characters and I had one audible credit left so I spent it on this selection. WOW! Jeff narrated it with his little friends, so it was very entertaining as well as informative. He started young and consistently practiced his craft wherever he could. Imagine...he became an "overnight" success after decades of consistent hard work, practice and putting himself out there. Great lesson for us all. His parents are my heros, too, and they are an example of how to encourage, support, and nurture an interest in a child (even if the interest may not lead to a career). Great listen!!

    Story
    "A little less funny then I expected, but good."

    This would be one of the few audio book that I expect would be MUCH better on audio then in writing, because Jeff narrates, and does his character's voices.

    It was a bit more "history of me, in a non funny way" then I was expecting, but I'm still glad I listened. There were still some good funny parts as well.

    Story
    "Thoroughly entertaining memoir of a ventriloquist"

    What an enjoyable story, I couldn't stop listening. Jeff Dunham is not only great at his art, he is also great at writing his story, and a terrific narrator. Actually, Jeff isn't the only narrator - Walter, Achmed and the characters he created, humorously interrupt Jeff. Sometimes I just want to listen to a book for fun. Sometimes I need to break away from history and the classics. Jeff Dunham's story is just such a book. I found it to be be thoroughly entertaining, humorous, and interesting. Ventriloquism is a disappearing art. Having grown up enjoying many "vents", Jeff's jargon - it brought me back to my childhood, the good old days. All I can add is that I loved this book and I think you will top. Take time out for some pure fun and download Jeff's story. You will not be disappointed.

    "A romp though a life experienced in multiple"

    Funny Touching Voices

    Learning how Jeff developed the characters that we now love so much.

    Christmas - when he gave his wife the pay phone she was talking on when he asked her out.

    I really needed a comedic lift at the time I bought the book - especially one without politics or meanness, of which there seem to be an inordinate amount. I laughed several times through the book - I kill you!

    Story
    "Pretty Entertaining"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, there are certainly funny moments when you would least expect them. The voices of the "dummies" make you feel like you are listening to a group of very unique people tell the story of not only Jeff's evolution but theirs as well.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Dunham – was your favorite?

    Walter is awesome, and it is true you almost forget he is conveying thoughts that Jeff himself has. He can get away with a lot!


    Any additional comments?

    There are snipets of stories within the book that seem unfinished or unnecessary. Overall funny, light, and interesting listen. I admire his passion greatly.
