Ventriloquist superstar Jeff Dunham’s first Netflix Original stand-up comedy special is out next week — and sees him and his diminutive entourage head to Ireland!

In the hour-long feature, titled Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster, the comedian and his dummies head to Dublin’s Bord Gáis Energy Theatre for an event that was taped live back in May of this year.

Joining Dunham are his puppets cranky old Walter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Bubba J, Peanut and Seamus — whose unique outlooks on family and politics traversed the Atlantic, bringing the “craic” to the Irish audience.

The comedian has sold out arenas on five continents and 12 countries on his latest tour including the United Kingdom, South Africa, Australia, the Middle East and Asia.

Dunham recently appeared on CNBC’s Jay Leno’s Garage where his 2008 Viper was given the white glove inspection.

Dunham, one of the world’s most popular comedians, holds the Guinness World Record for the most tickets sold for a stand-up comedy tour.

He achieved the feat with his 2014 Spark of Insanity tour, getting 1,981,720 bums on seats.

Relative Disaster streams from September 12 on Netflix.
