Fans of comedian and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham and his rainbow of supposedly hilarious puppets will be thrilled to know that the Dallas native is bringing his Disorderly Conduct tour to the American Airlines Center on Saturday. With such characters in his arsenal as José Jalapeño on a Stick and Achmed the Dead Terrorist, it’s no wonder that Dunham is no stranger to controversy, having been accused of racism more than a few times, and of relying on his puppet shtick to be funny a time or two as well. That doesn’t keep him from being what Time Magazine called “the most popular comedian in the United States” and being the only ventriloquist alive capable of filling a venue of this size. He performs at 7 p.m. Saturday at American Airlines Center, 2500 Victory Ave. Tickets are $59.38 and going fast at americanairlinescenter.com.
