Comedian Jeff Dunham and his cast of dummies are coming to Las Vegas for a six-month residency beginning Nov. 28 on the Las Vegas Strip.

During a tour stop at Caesars Palace June 13, Dunham, a ventriloquist, and his popular dummy “Achmed the Dead Terrorist,” announced his residency show, “Not Playing with a Full Deck.”

“I just hope the Vegas hookers are virgins,” Achmed said to the laughing audience following Dunham’s announcement at the Colosseum.

Dunham is scheduled to perform six shows a week, Wednesday through Saturday, through May 31, 2015 at Planet Hollywood. Along with Achmed, sidekicks Walter the Grumpy Retiree, redneck Bubba J, spicy pepper Jose Jalapeno, manic purple creature Peanut, and Peanut’s own dummy, Little Jeff.

“I’m very much looking forward to welcoming our fans from all around the world in our new home at Planet Hollywood,” Dunham said.

Dunham was recently named as the world record holder for “Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-up Comedy Tour” by Guinness World Records for his “Spark of Insanity” tour. That tour sold close to 2 million tickets across the 386 venues where he performed.
