Global comedy superstar Russell Peters is thrilled to announce his return to his home and native land as part of his brand new Deported World Tour this fall. The Emmy, Gemini and Peabody award winning comic will perform a limited 11-city arena tour bringing his unique and sometimes controversial brand of humour, home once again. Peters’ new show features all-new material including plenty of Russell’s signature audience interactions and will feature a stop at Richcraft Live at Canadian Tire Centre on Sunday, Nov. 18.
Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.Ticketmaster.ca, www.canadiantirecentre.com, by phone at 1-877-788-FANS (3267), in person at The Sens Store at Carlingwood Mall, Place d’Orléans and in the ByWard Market or at the Canadian Tire Centre box office. The Canadian Tire Centre box office does not sell tickets in-person on the first day of sales, Ottawa Senators hockey excluded.
Russell Peters returns to live touring after taking time off to film his smash hit CTV/Netflix series The Indian Detective. The Indian Detective also stars Anupam Kher (The Big Sick, Silver Linings Playbook), William Shatner (Star Trek), Christina Cole (Suits, Casino Royale) and Mishqah Parthiephal (Keeping Up with the Kandasamys).
Peters can also be seen in the films The Clapper with Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried and Tracy Morgan as well as Supercon with Ryan Kwanten and John Malkovich and Adventures in Public School with Judy Greer.
The Deported World Tour kicked off in Australia and New Zealand in February and has already travelled to over 29 cities in 20 countries and been seen by over 100,000 fans worldwide. The tour will continue well into 2019 and Peters will then take an extended break from live touring to focus on other ventures and spend more time at home with his daughter.
Listed on the Forbes List as one of the top ten Highest Earning Comics in the U.S. since 2009, Peters has spent the last 29 years building a career, becoming one of the biggest comics in the world. Thanks to YouTube and his global following, Peters has sold-out arenas from Madison Square Garden to the Sydney Opera House. Peters has also performed for the troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and on the USS Eisenhower and the HMCS Winnipeg, and appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Lopez Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and on HBO, CNN, MTV, BBC, Showtime and Comedy Central. Peters’ 2010 memoir, Call Me Russell, was a Globe and Mail number one bestseller in Canada.
Peters is an active philanthropist having donated more than a million dollars over the past several years to various charities from the Brampton Civic Hospital, Gilda’s Club, the MS Society of Canada and a scholarship at his old high-school; The Russell Peters North Peel Scholarship, which sends a deserving student to college. The scholarship is now in its ninth year.
