We saw Jeff Dunham on a Carnival Cruise Ship YEARS ago.

Back then he only had Walter and Walter's wife. He was great.
Walter and Walter's wife sang a duet....complete with harmony!

Currently we like Fat Kat. He is a hoot!!

Marc Rubben is on the Conquest. (Similar act to Jeff Dunham) I like his act, especially the 'honeymooner' bit.

We caught a comedian named "Happy" on a couple of cruises and loved his act. If you ever get the chance to see him, don't miss it and be sure to sit up close to be able to see his facial expressions. They are amazing.

That's him. I just couldn't remember the last name. I think he is one of the best we have seen on Carnival.

The ones we saw just steal their material from bigger acts. Or the internet.

That would depend on what ship you were on

If it was the Fantasy, and since the description fits, it was Lewis Nixon.

How often do they change? We did two Valor cruises a year apart and the same comic was on both cruises with the same act word for word. I don't remember his name because like his act it was very forgettable.

Not sure how often they change, however, we did the Destiny in Oct and there were different comedians. In fact, we had a different CD and different lead singers in the dance troup and a different piano player in the piano bar.
