Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this comedy series showcases the talents of ventriloquist Jeff Dunham and his collection of sidekick puppet characters, including a crotchety old man, a cadaverous terrorist skeleton, and a beer-swilling redneck. The jokes range from tame situational comedy to slightly racist and sexist cracks. There's also moderate swearing and some sexual innuendo -- all of which means that Dunham's act is better suited for older viewers than for kids.

Sexual Content

Some innuendo and sexist language. One of the puppet characters can be quite focused on "boobs," for example.


No violence, though one of the comic's characters is a terrorist who often jokes about destruction.


Some words are bleeped. Mild swearing and insults include "shut the hell up," "holy crap," and "tramp." When someone uses the word "c--k" appropriately, one character tries to make it into a double entendre.

Social Behavior

While Dunham's ability to find the humor in any situation shows that the basic moments in life -- both the mundane and the unusual -- are full of potential, the fact that many of his characters are based on stereotypes (socioeconomic, ethnic, or otherwise) sends a somewhat iffy message.


The series promotes the comedy career of its star, Jeff Dunham.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some drinking, and several jokes about being drunk.
