Russell Peters

GM Place

June 16, 2009

As much a humorist as a comedian, Russell doesn’t really tell jokes. Rather, he uses his wry observations on the subjects of race, class and culture to illuminate our human shortcomings with the sizzling accuracy of a well-aimed laser. His quick wit and ability to mimic language and accents allows Russell to create characters of all races and cultures and forge an immediate bond with his audiences, regardless of their racial and cultural background. Outsourced has gone eleven times Platinum in his home country of Canada.

Russell has been doing stand up for 20 years and already has an impressive resume. He had a recurring role in the Canadian sitcom Lord Have Mercy and hosted his own BBC chat show Network East Late. His movie credits include the comedy Quarter Life Crises, My Baby’s Daddy and the martial arts flick Tiger Claws III.

In 2009, Russell will tour with his 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR, which will feature not only his greatest hits 'remixed' + all new material. The 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR will go across CANADA, the US and The UK.
