Thursday soon as Ian could get home from work and change we took off for Birmingham, Alabama to the Alabama Theater.
Jeff Dunham had two sold out shows in Atlanta, GA...and after I had ordered the Alabama tickets, he added a third show in Atlanta. Thats okay, we did alright going to Alabama. Parking in Atlanta, getting in and out would have been a nightmare.
Getting a parking place around the Alabama Theater was proving difficult, but we got a space finally and got in and got to our seats.
Being as it was in the theater you could see no matter where you sat, unless you are short, like me and Shelby. Then you flip your seat up and sit on the top of it. We had the last row of seats up against the wall of the section we were in, so it wasnt blocking anyone to do this.
First up was 'Guitar Guy'. He is the guy that played for Achmed in Jingle Bombs. If you havent seen this it is on YouTube, its not on any of his DVDs yet, but it will be.
He did his speel and routine, it was pretty funny...then Jeff came on, did some stand up, and then it was on to the people we REALLY came to see as he says...the guys in the little suitcases! ;)
First was Walter, he did a lot of Walter. Did new stuff too that has not been heard before.
Then next up was Achmed the Dead Terrorist. Now Jeff warned us ahead of time he was going to be practicing and possibly having parts taped for his Christmas DVD coming out this Christmas...so we got to see some Christmas stuff...in April...lol.
Then Shelbys favorite was up. Peanut. Shelby mentioned later he didnt do his famous NEOWWW sound. (He does this while taking his little puppet hand and going over the top of his head, implying that a joke went over everyone or someones head). She was right! He didnt! Huh.
Then they did some Jose the Jalepeno...on a STEEK...lol (thats stick with a spanish accent).
Time was rocking on and he closed up shop at nine oclock then came back on...and said...
I have another show at ten oclock, but...
screw em they can wait...(grin)
and then he pulled out Bubba J. Well he HAD to do Bubba J! He WAS in Alabama wasnt he??? LOLLLL! So that was pretty funny, but I think it made finding a parking space for the people coming to the ten oclock show a problem, and...they had to clear out all the seven oclock show folks and clean up the theater before they could let the next crowd in...so everyone was clustered outside the theater waiting to get in. Sure glad we went to the seven oclock show! ;)
We got back around 1:30 in the morning, really late for us. We were bone tired and crashed hard. Ian still had to get up and go to work so we were back up at 5 am. Yes, I went back to bed after letting the critters out at daylight, I am no fool. ;)
Shelby enjoyed it SO much. It was for her more than for us. She got her a Peanut T Shirt after the show too. As we rode home she said excitedly...
THAT WAS THE CHANCE IN A LIFETIME TO SEE! :)
