Jeff Dunham Special ‘I’m With Cupid’ Sets Premiere Date, First Look – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: Jeff Dunham has announced his 11th special, I’m with Cupid, which is set to launch just ahead of Valentine’s Day, premiering on Saturday, February 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Bushwhacking their way through the topics of love, relationships, and all-things-Valentines in the special are Dunham and his beloved dummy cohorts Walter, Bubba J, Peanut, Jose Jalapeño “on a steek!,” and the suspiciously familiar ‘new’ guy, “Achamedes, Greek god of KEELER LOVE.” Check out a first-look clip above.

“If you hate Valentine’s Day, you’re REALLY going to hate this special…” promised Dunham. “Watch it with someone you love! Or alone… Or with someone you hate… With a beer.”

Filmed at the Straz Center in Tampa, FL, the special comes on the heels of Jeff Dunham: Me the People (2022) and Jeff Dunham’s Completely Unrehearsed Last-Minute Pandemic Holiday Special (2020), as part of a three-special deal with Comedy Central. Leading up to the premiere, the network will be re-airing some of Dunham’s fan-favorite specials, including Jeff Dunham: Spark of Insanity (1/12 at 11 p.m.), Jeff Dunham: All Over the Map (1/19 at 11 p.m.), Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood (1/26 at 11 p.m.), and Jeff Dunham: Me the People (2/2 at 11 p.m.).

Jeff Dunham: I’m with Cupid is exec produced by Dunham, Robert Hartmann, Judi Marmel, Stu Schreiberg, Matt McNeil, and John Bravakis. Ryan Moran is the executive producer for Paramount Media Networks & MTV Entertainment Studios.                                              

Famous for his ventriloquist work, Dunham is currently on the 2024 leg of his Still Not Canceled tour. To date, he’s performed in more than 20 countries, seeing his specials garner nearly 2.5 billion views across all platforms. Dunham’s autobiography, All By My Selves: Walter, Peanut, Achmed, and Me, landed him on the New York Times’ Best Seller list for three weeks in a row. The versatile entertainer has also created an animated film for CMT, hosted the Food Network’s Halloween Baking Championship, and appeared in such films and TV series as 30 Rock, Sonny with a Chance, Last Man Standing, Dinner for Schmucks, and The Masked Singer.

Dunham is repped by Levity Live and CAA.
