Jeff should market this as a workout DVD.
My Dad and I were laughing so much we must've lost 5 pounds each.
With Walter, Peanut, José Jalapeño, and the legend Achmed, you really can't go wrong with this DVD.

The dvd is excellent. Jeff Dunham is an excellent ventriloquist and comedian. His interaction with the puppets make you believe they are real. I laughed my way through this dvd an enjoyable watch and I'll watch it again.

Having seen all of Jeff's previous work, and given the fact that my partner is a fan, to say that I enjoy Jeff's irreverent, sometimes borderline controversial humour would be a little understated.

Controlled Chaos is Jeff's most recent outing and I am sad to say that it is not his best, in fact, not even close to his previous work.

Its starts with his usual stand-up set piece which in all honesty is not his true calling. Perhaps as an English viewer I find his humour in this part a little, "American"; in that it's quite obvious and literal. On this DVD the opening charts his life as a ventriloquist, and I must say, although a little history of a person you like is usually enjoyable, this came across as a bit sad really; it made the larger than life ventriloquist seem all too real (typical suburban American middle class kid) It also didn't add anything to the act; it.didn't lead you in.

His performance then moves on at it's usual pace through the characters he uses. But for me he had lost his energy, he seemed drained of inspiration. I felt that many of the sections were strung out and didn't really offer much new material. Indeed, many of the jokes were recycled and slightly reworded. Maybe this was due to his marriage breaking down which he mentions in the beginning , maybe it was recorded on a bad night, who knows.... But it wasn't the Jeff Dunham I remember from earlier DVD releases.

All this is a great shame as Jeff still remains the best ventriloquist I have seen. And he is a true doctor of his art, and this comes out now and again as he can still wow the audience with vocal gymnastics and brilliant humour. Sadly these moments are few and far between in Controlled Chaos and it doesn't flow. In true Jeff Dunham style though, Peanut still remains the best act, that one at least was enjoyable.

If you are new to Jeff I probably wouldn't recommend this as a showcase of his talent. If you are a returning fan, it's worth a watch if nothing else.

Just a quick review to say that this DVD is very funny indeed. It does start out a little slow but the good stuff does follow after approximately ten minutes of introduction.

Just a quick warning to the delicate people: there are plenty of semi-racist stereotype remarks about all (ALL) cultures. If you're of a pathetic (humourless) disposition then I would advise you stay away. Otherwise this is an absolutely hilarious standup routine, especially the Achmed The Dead Terrorist section!!

If you're a long term fan of jeff and his puppets like me, then you will have seen the other shows he's done and have some good idea of the type of humour he has.

Unfortuently this dvd lets him down a little bit, alot of the puppets sound the same and the jokes are pretty bland or a new twist on old material that just doesn't quite snap. Which is sad, but this dvd does show that he's very clever in what he does. Various things that he does in the show, does make me sit back and think 'wow...that was pretty awesome!'

So if you're interested in ventriloquism, then this dvd would be of interest to you and there's some real inspiring things he does in it.

There's alot of bonus material too, most of it is quite funny, but again - the same mistakes show up like in the show.

All in all, it's ok. But not brilliant. His older work is better.

Saw a clip of Jeff Dunham on You Tube. Had to get a DVD, this guy is a very good stand up comedian as well as a very accomplished ventriloquist.

The dummy characters are brilliantly made and the voice and attitude of each character is brilliantly portrayed. At times very rude but incredibly funny through out.

This is one guy who is not afraid to let the dummies take the pee out of him. Which they seem to take delight in doing at every opportunity. Some of the quick one liners had me in stitches. Very, very funny. 5 star +++++++++++++++++ performance Jeff.

I've been waiting for a DVD of new material since the last releases. I saw Jeff on the European Tour last year and thoroughly enjoyed it.

This DVD contains the welcome addition of a couple of new characters. Peanut now taking up his new hobby of Ventriloquism is hilarious!

Highly recommended!
