单口喜剧表演第四弹:Jeff Dunham

西方单口喜剧(英文: Stand-up Comedy),是一种很直接、甚至大有挑衅意味的幽默,观众希望你说的东西能够宣泄他们的愤怒、情感或者类似的作用。

而由于中西文化的差异,中国的“相声”和美国的"Stand-up Comedy"在尺度上有很大的不同。相较于中国的保守,美国的单口喜剧更显得无“节操”或“下限”。

“你可以说出真实感想,观众也能接受。美国有很多冷幽默,但中国比较少,因为大家对自己的生活还是有所保留。”

本单元将会为大家推荐一系列的“西式相声”,均是国外较为出名的单口喜剧表演者。在不同的文化下,你又是否能听懂笑点?对于无厘头的搞笑,你又是否能够“包容”?

注:部分表演者讲话尺度略大,如感不适,与小编无关~

Jeffrey  Dunham (born April 18, 1962) is an American ventriloquist, producer, and stand-up comedian who has also appeared on numerous television shows, including Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy  Central Presents, The Tonight Show and Sonny With a Chance. He has six specials that run on Comedy Central: Jeff Dunham: Arguing with Myself, Jeff Dunham: Spark of Insanity, Jeff Dunham's Very Special  Christmas Special, Jeff Dunham: Controlled Chaos, Jeff Dunham: Minding the Monsters, and Jeff Dunham: All Over the Map. Dunham also starred in The Jeff Dunham Show, a series on the network in 2009. 

His style has been described as "a dressed-down, more digestible version of Don Rickles with multiple personality disorder". Describing his characters, Time magazine said, "All of them are politically incorrect,  gratuitously insulting and ill tempered." Dunham has been credited with reviving ventriloquism, and doing more to promote the art form than anyone since Edgar Bergen.

Dunham has been called "America's favorite comedian" by Slate.com, and according to the concert industry publication Pollstar, he is the top-grossing standup act in North America, and is among the most  successful acts in Europe as well. As of November 2009, he has sold over four million DVDs, an additional $7 million in merchandise sales, and received more than 350 million hits on YouTube as of October 2009  (his introduction of Achmed the Dead Terrorist in Spark of Insanity was ranked as the ninth most watched YouTube video at the time). A Very Special Christmas Special was the most-watched telecast in Comedy  Central history, with its DVD selling over 400,000 in its first two weeks. Forbes.com ranked Dunham as the third highest-paid comedian in the United States behind Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock, and reported that
