Russell Peters, recently honoured as one of Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Comics of All Time, embarked on his comedy journey at the age of nineteen, performing at open mics in his hometown of Toronto. Over the next fifteen years, he honed his comedic craft at clubs across Canada and the UK.

In 2004, Peters gained global recognition for his CTV Comedy Now! special, paving the way for a meteoric rise in the world of comedy. He made history by becoming the first comedian to sell out Toronto’s Air Canada Centre in 2007, a milestone that marked the beginning of his incredible comedy journey.

Peters continued to break attendance records at renowned venues worldwide, including Madison Square Garden, The Sydney Opera House, and London’s O2 Arena, where he set the UK attendance record for an individual comedy show.

His stand-up tours have been captured in successful specials broadcast on Showtime and Comedy Central, including Outsourced in 2006, Red, White and Brown in 2008, and The Green Card Tour in 2010.

In 2013, he made history again by creating the first-ever Netflix Original Comedy Special. Peters’ most recent tour, The Deported World Tour, was witnessed by over 400,000 fans across 40 cities in 20 countries and culminated in the stand-up special Russell Peters Deported which premiered on Amazon Prime in January 2020.

Presented by Live Nation Middle East, this is a comedy event you won’t want to miss. Join Russell Peters for a night of laughter, entertainment, and have the exclusive opportunity to be a part of the filming of his new stand-up special.
