After high school, David Dyer wanted to pursue his dream of becoming a famous Broadway director, but after discovering that path involved a lot of work, he settled for becoming a stand-up comedian. Now he’s making the same amount of money a low level stripper would pull in, but he’s happy, and he can provide name brand cereal for his kids. David’s twisted take on life’s quirky little situations means that he’s covering the same material a million other guys are doing, he just does it better. Follow David on twitter and facebook. Check out his new comedy short, "Crab Grass."
Fans of Walter the old man, José Jalapeno, and Achmed the Dead Terrorist may not realize this, but the actual mastermind behind them all is their on-stage straight man, ventriloquist Jeff Dunham. But we don't think Dunham minds sharing the spotlight with his alter egos because they've helped him become one of the biggest draws in comedy, which is evident by the sheer number of comedy specials he’s appeared in, and the size of the venues he's selling out. You can now read all about Jeff's (and all of his personalities') life story in the new book All By My Selves. You can also see him and all his pals on the new Comedy Central special, "Minding The Monsters" which airs on Sunday October 7th at 9PM. Follow Jeff on twitter.
