Many comedy outfits come and go. They have a good year or two and the tend to fizzle out to just doing second rate comedy routines over time with the occasional bit of news about them. Jeff Dunham's Achmed the Dead Terrorist is still one of the funniest things you will ever come across and I predict they will still be incredibly funny in another 5 to 10 years.
Why do I say this?
Well for a start they are innovative and in just a short space (conceived around 2003) Achmed and Jeff have gone on to become one of the highest grossing comedy routines in the USA.
Achmed has come out with dozens of one liners that he is now well known for and has become a legend in his own right. This is a proven thing.
Achmed is now offered in many shapes and guises from mobile phone ringtones that are advertised on the TV to wallpapers, talking dolls, DVD box sets and mp3 files.
There is no reason that Achmed can not go easily for another 5-10 years as long as he keeps on coming out with funny routines, and I do not see that ever stopping.
His DVD and merchandise sales recently grossed $ 5 million so that goes some way to show how immensely popular he still is.
Besides his amazing comedy stuff done to date he is still producing some fantastically funny new stuff every day. He has got a new series of the Jeff Dunham show out on the comedy central channel which is fantastic.
So for an unforgettable laugh filled evening or afternoon I strongly suggest that you look towards Achmed the dead terrorist and Jeff Dunham as your next source of a great laugh.
Silence! Infidel! Why not come around to a new way of laughing and looking out one of the funniest things you will ever set eyes on.
