Listed as one of the top-ten earning stand-ups in the United States, along with Chris Rock and Jerry Seinfeld, international comedy rock-star Russell Peters achieved unparalleled success without a TV sitcom or film exposure. Peters focus on race and culture has earned him fans across North America and around the world. He has sold-out venues from Madison Square Garden to the Sydney Opera House to London's O2 Arena, where he set a new attendance record in 2009.
Less a classic joke-telling comic than a humorist in the tradition of George Carlin, Peters uses observations on the subjects of race, class and culture to illuminate human shortcomings with the sizzling accuracy of a well-aimed laser. Interacting with the audience, throwing out one-liners and engaging in impromptu dialogue with fans, he owns the stage and holds the audience in the palm of his hand.
