Jeff Dunham coming to the St. Pete Times Forum




Sorry, Terry Fator, but there's only room for one A-list ventriloquist in this country. (Seriously, that's all we can stand.) And that man is Jeff Dunham.

Disagree? Dunham's got a trunk full of cronies and some nice fat Comedy Central ratings (well, initially, at least) to back him up. And he's twice been named one of the 100 most powerful celebrities in Hollywood, according to Forbes, raking in a whopping $30 million in 2008.

Thirty. Million. For playing. With dolls. Where did our lives go wrong?

You can see for yourself why Dunham is so popular when he, Peanut, Achmed, Walter and more hit the St. Pete Times Forum at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 24. Tickets start at $40.50. Click here.

Feb. 24? Sounds like this will make a perfect creepy Valentine's Day gift for that special someone in your life who's not afraid of puppets. (In other words, count us out.)
