From a press release:

On the heels of his new Netflix special, it was announced today that record-breaking global comedy superstar Jeff Dunham will return to the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre Township on Sunday, Feb. 23, 2020 at 3 p.m. as part of his new international tour, “Seriously!?”

Tickets, which start at $54, plus fees, go on sale next Monday, Oct. 7 at 10 a.m. at the arena’s NBT Bank Box Office (255 Highland Park Blvd., Wilkes-Barre), and all Ticketmaster outlets, and by phone at 800-745-3000.

For the past 12 years, Jeff Dunham and his somewhat-inappropriate-proteges – Peanut, Walter, José Jalapeño, Bubba J., and Achmed the Dead Terrorist – have filled arenas across the United States and the world with their multiple blockbuster tours. This fall, Dunham and his cohorts will set out on their brand new international tour – “Jeff Dunham: Seriously!?” – hitting cities crisscrossing North America, Canada, and then worldwide.

In addition to this tour, the world-renowned performer’s new Netflix stand-up special entitled “Jeff Dunham: Beside Himself” premiered last week. This was Dunham’s second Netflix Originals special and the eighth in his string of record-breaking stand-up television events. This impressive show was shot in front of 16,000 fans at the American Airlines Center in his hometown of Dallas, Texas, where Dunham introduced his new character, “Larry,” the personal adviser to the president, who has now earned his spot with the troop on the tour.

Dunham has built an entertainment empire over 30+ years of nonstop touring and performance innovation. With 10 million followers on Facebook and two million YouTube subscribers, amassing well over a billion views, the comedian/ventriloquist has carved out his own unique space in the comedy world. His accomplishments have led to record-breaking viewership with his stand-up specials on Netflix, NBC, and Comedy Central. His astonishing arena-packing power even puts him on par with major music acts like Luke Bryan and Metallica.
