Russell Peters is all new on his latest tour

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Brampton, Ontario’s Russell Peters is best-known for drawing from his Indian-Canadian heritage and poking fun at racial stereotypes. It’s material that’s rocketed him to comedy superstar status, along with a scattering of movie and TV gigs.

I mean, who hasn’t heard this routine on his experiences growing up as an immigrant child:

As far as comedians go, he’s the big kid on the block with a huge global fanbase – having set attendance records in Oman, South Africa and Singapore among other places – and he’s coming to a city near you. His Notorious World Tour is in Edmonton Thursday before heading to Vancouver for a DJ gig at the FIVESIXTY nightclub (Russell Peters at CIRQUE tickets) and a stand-up gig at Rogers Arena Saturday night.

In addition to his stand-up, Russell Peters is apparently a DJ too. Who knew?

After Vancouver, the tour loops eastward before finishing off in Los Angeles, CA on December 7th.

His focus on racial comedy is what made him famous, and his latest tour is said to draw from that same motif, but Russell promises new material on his Notorious tour:

From The Vancouver Sun:

“The subject matter will be from the same pool but the jokes will be different,” Peters, 41, said in recent interview in advance of his Notorious World Tour.

“I don’t know about reinventing myself but I feel pressure to write funny stuff that’s comparable to the old stuff. You make sure you’re not just doing inside jokes for the old fans; you want to make the new fans feel welcome too. You want them to feel like, ‘Oh, good, we can get on this party bus too.’”

Tickets to all dates of Russell Peters’ Notorious World Tour can be bought with ShowTimeTickets.com, where we can get you in to see all the hottest shows this summer. Peters is a hit wherever he goes, and is a sure bet for a night of laughs!
