"The Jeff Dunham Show" is a new half-hour comedy-reality show from Levity Entertainment starring ventriloquist-comedian Jeff Dunham.

Dunham and his pals perform in front of a live studio audience as well as interact on location with real people.

The series is the first part of a wide-ranging, fully-integrated, multi-platform initiative that COMEDY CENTRAL signed earlier this year with Dunham that also includes a stand-up special, major-market stand-up tour, DVDs and a consumer products partnership. His one-hour COMEDY CENTRAL Original Stand-Up Special will air in early fall 2010, with COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Levity producing and distributing DVDs of both the series and stand-up special, as well as a colossal, nationwide COMEDY CENTRAL Live stand-up concert tour with over 60 performances. The tour kicks off September 2010 and a major consumer products partnership in conjunction with the series and the tour will also hit the marketplace in 2010. Each of the deal's elements will feature unique components for reaching the COMEDY CENTRAL audience wherever it lives. This deal also opens the door to future digital projects with Dunham and comedycentral.com.
