By Master Sgt. Jake Chappelle on December 14, 2011

The comedian who helped bring back ventriloquism, Jeff Dunham, will bring his team of one-of-a-kind characters to the Tacoma Dome, Tacoma, Wash. for a one-man performance, March 24, 2012 at 8 p.m.

Dunham's "Controlled Chaos" tour is another event for Air Force Reserve Recruiting's "Get 1 Now: Refer a Friend Tour."

"This is a great show with a great meet-and-greet opportunity," said Chief Master Sgt. Scott Terpening, 446th Airlift Wing senior recruiter. "Get 1 tickets will go fast!"

"Get 1 Now" is a referral program aimed at getting Reservists to maintain Air Force Reserve strength by recommending qualified people with whom they wish to serve. When those referrals join the Reserve, the Reservist earns credit for an accession and becomes eligible for an award.

According to, Dunham has been one of the world's top-grossing comedians since 2007 and is known for his popular and unique characters such as, grumpy old Walter; and José, the Jalapeño on a Stick, who've inspired praise from his fans.

In 2006, Comedy Central showcased Dunham's "Arguing with Myself", which prompted "Spark of Insanity" and "A Very Special Christmas Special."

His series, "The Jeff Dunham Show", broke Comedy Central records, which propelled him to international fame.
