New York, NY (January 12, 2024) - Today Comedy Central announced “Jeff Dunham: I’m With Cupid,”  a new  1-hour comedy special filmed at the beautiful Straz Center in Tampa, FL. The special is slated to premiere Saturday, February 3rd at 8pm ET/PT on Comedy Central. 

With Valentine's Day just around the corner and love in the air at Comedy Central, Dunham is back for his 11th standup special. Bushwhacking their way through the topics of love, relationships, and all-things-Valentines are Dunham and his beloved dummy cohorts Walter, Bubba J, Peanut, Jose Jalapeño “on a steek!”, and the suspiciously familiar ‘new’ guy, “Achamedes, Greek god of KEELER LOVE.”  

“If you hate Valentine’s Day, you’re REALLY going to hate this special…" shares Dunham. "Watch it with someone you love! Or alone… Or with someone you hate… With a beer.”

“Jeff Dunham: I’m With Cupid” follows the comedian’s 2022 special “Jeff Dunham: Me the People” and 2020’s “Jeff Dunham's Completely Unrehearsed Last-Minute Pandemic Holiday Special,” as part of a 3-special deal with Comedy Central.

Comedy Central will be re-airing some of Dunham’s fan-favorite specials from over the years leading up to the new premiere, including “Jeff Dunham: Spark of Insanity” (airing 1/12 at 11pm), “Jeff Dunham:  All Over the Map” (airing 1/19 at 11pm), “Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood” (airing 1/26 at 11pm), and “Jeff Dunham: Me the People” (airing 2/2 at 11pm).

The special is executive produced by Dunham, Robert Hartmann, Judi Marmel, Stu Schreiberg, Matt McNeil, and John Bravakis. Dunham is repped by Levity Live and CAA. Ryan Moran is the executive producer for Paramount Media Networks & MTV Entertainment Studios.                                               

Currently on the 2024 leg of his Still Not Canceled tour, Dunham has completed 9 international tours, with shows in more than 20 countries. International tour stops include arenas in Canada, U.K., Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, France, Australia, New Zealand, Abu Dhabi, Israel, Malaysia, Singapore and South Africa (where he is the highest-selling international comedian). Of note, Jeff sold over 12,000 tickets in the city of Amsterdam alone, and over 2% of the country’s population was in attendance at his performance in Iceland.

The man Slate called “America’s favorite comedian” has ten record-breaking comedy specials to his credit and the three most watched stand up specials on Comedy Central, “Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood,” “Jeff Dunham's Completely Unrehearsed Last-Minute Pandemic Holiday Special,” and “Me the People” (L3, P2+). 

At the time of its airing, Dunham’s NBC primetime special, “Unhinged in Hollywood,” ranked as the time period’s top non-sports program on the Big 4 and was rebroadcast six weeks later on Comedy Central to become its most watched special of 2015. The Bio Channel’s premiere of “Birth of a Dummy” in 2011, a two-hour special on Dunham’s life and career, was the most watched telecast in the network’s history, while the re-airing immediately following the premiere marked the network’s second most-watched telecast. As A&E relaunched the Biography series, Dunham’s special was one of three previous episodes from its decades-long run chosen to be remade in the new format, with “Talking Heads” premiering in 2019.

Along with his broadcast achievements, his specials have garnered nearly 2.5 billion views across all platforms. His autobiography, All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, and Me, landed Dunham on the New York Times’ Best Seller list three weeks in a row. The versatile entertainer created an animated film for CMT, hosted the Food Network’s Halloween Baking Championship, guested on NBC’s “30 Rock,” Disney’s “Sonny with a Chance,” FOX’s “Last Man Standing" and appeared in Jay Roach’s film, Dinner for Schmucks, featuring Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd. Most recently, Dunham was seen on FOX’s “The Masked Singer.” 

Dunham and his wife Audrey created the Jeff Dunham Family Fund, and through their organization, a portion of every ticket sold is given to various charities and charitable organizations of all kinds. For more information visit
