Jeff Dunham’s wife, Audrey Murdick, has been mentioned on several occasions throughout the ventriloquist’s brand-new Netflix special called Jeff Dunham: Beside Himself. Naturally, we became curious about who she is, especially that she tried to remain away from the spotlight over the years.
Let’s get to know more about the Texas beauty here.
She Married Jeff Dunham in 2012
The ventriloquist tied the knot with Audrey Murdick in 2012 in Santa Ynez, California, in front of 112 guests. “No matter what the day, we go to sleep laughing, and we wake up laughing,” the couple tells PEOPLE. “We can’t imagine a love any better than this.”
Jeff Dunham also debuted a trimmer figure during the wedding, thanks to his bride, a fitness model, nutritionist, and trainer. She put Dunham on a strict diet and workout regimen that helped him shed 25 lbs. in just three months.
She Sued Jeff Dunham’s First Wife in Bizarre Cyberpiracy Lawsuit
In 2015, Audrey Dunham sued the old wife of the comedian, Paige Dunham, for registering AudreyDunham.com, AudreyDunham.net, AudreyDunham.us, and AudreyDunham.biz. The ventriloquist’s wife sued her for allegedly registering those domain names before Audrey Dunham took the name in marriage.
“Defendant knew at the time she registered the Accused Domains, that Plaintiff would soon change her name to Audrey Dunham,” states the lawsuit.
The lawsuit also said that the new Mrs. Jeff Dunham asked Paige Dunham to transfer the websites; however, Paige responded with a demand for tens of thousands of dollars for each domain name.
Hence, Audrey Dunham requested to restrain Paige Dunham from cybersquatting and unfairly competing with her with alleged damages of up to $100,000 per domain name, as well as a claim for unfair competition.
She Has Switched to Vegan
When Audrey Dunham left the competitive fitness world with strict, low-carb, and high- animal protein diet plans, “I found and fell in love with the vegan lifestyle.”
“Over the past ten years, I’ve fully immersed myself in all things food, and have had many culinary-related adventures. I earned a plant-based nutrition certificate through eCornell, spent a week training at the Culinary Institute of America,” Aubrey Dunham wrote.

She’s a Mother of Twins
A day before the comedian Jeff Dunham and Audrey Dunham’s third anniversary in 2015, they welcomed their twin boys, James Jeffrey and Jack Steven, into the world. “Born two hours apart and no C-section needed,” the ventriloquist told PEOPLE.
After giving birth to her twin boys, Audrey started compiling a list of tips and handy advice on how soon-to-be moms could “survive” motherhood with two or more babies.
