    Russell Peters

    Stand-up

    Only a handful of today’s artists can claim their success began with YouTube, and even less, if
    any, having then been named alongside such luminaries as Richard Pryor, George Carlin and
    Eddie Murphy in Rolling Stone’s recently released list of the 50 Best Comics of All Time. In
    comedian Russell Peters’ case, “success” may be a drastic understatement.

    Russell Peters started doing stand-up at the age of nineteen at open mics in his native Toronto in
    1989. He spent the next fifteen years honing his craft at clubs across Canada and the UK.
    In 2004, Peters gained critical and global recognition for his CTV “Comedy Now!” special which
    wound up on YouTube. Peters says: “I never put the special on YouTube. I still don’t know how to
    upload anything on the web to this day.” That upload launched a new level of fame and
    unforeseen success. It also led to larger and larger shows, not only in arenas in his native
    Canada, where he became the first comedian to sell-out Toronto’s Air Canada Centre in 2007 (as
    of today, six times and over 100,000 people), but to arenas in the United States, the UK, Australia,
    South Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Asia.

    The subsequent tours were captured in his phenomenally successful specials broadcast on
    Showtime and Comedy Central: Outsourced in 2006; Red, White and Brown in 2008; and, The
    Green Card Tour in 2010, which went on to set a UK attendance record for a one-off comedy
    show with over 16,000 fans in attendance at London’s O2 Arena. In 2013, Peters became the first
    comedian to create a Netflix Original Comedy Special. Recorded in front of over 14,000 fans at
    Sydney, Australia’s Allphones Arena, Notorious became a global success for Netflix. In
    conjunction with Notorious, Peters allowed cameras to follow him on-tour for a behind-the-scenes,
    four-part documentary series, Russell Peters vs. The World, also exclusively for Netflix. Peters’
    most recent world tour, Almost Famous, a celebration of his twenty-five years in the business,
    once again set attendance records across the globe, from Canada to Singapore to Madison
    Square Garden, resulting in his being nominated alongside Jeff Dunham and Kevin Hart as
    “Billboard’s Top Touring Comic in 2015.” The corresponding special; Russell Peters: Almost
    Famous, premiered on Netflix in October of 2016.

    Peters hasn’t stopped there, as evidenced by his recently being rewarded with a 2017 Peabody
    and Emmy Award for Executive Producing the critically acclaimed Netflix Documentary Hip-Hop
    Evolution. He and his production company have also self-financed and self-produced his specials,
    while his corny, light-hearted take on Christmas, 2011’s “A Russell Peters Christmas,” became the
    highest rated Christmas special in Canadian Network, CTV history.

    In 2010 Peters book, Call Me Russell was published by Random House Canada and went on to
    become a number one bestseller. The book was a candid memoir of Peters’ life, family and career
    and is a must-read for any up-and-coming comedian.

    Russell Peters has no shortage of accolades. He maintains a staggering social media presence
    as his YouTube videos have amassed well over 250 million views, and a Twitter following of over
    four million people. Professionally, his DVD’s have sold upwards of a million copies, while his
    Notorious World Tour became the highest attended comedy tour ever in Australia, the United Arab
    Emirates, Oman, Lebanon, South Africa, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong
    and his home country of Canada. Peters has sold-out Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music
    Hall, San Jose’s HP Pavilion, New Jersey’s Prudential Centre, the Chicago Theatre, LA’s Nokia
    Theatre, the Sydney Opera House and the Hammersmith Apollo. In November 2012, Peters
    became the first stand-up comic to perform at Brooklyn’s Barclays Centre with over 10,000 fans in
    attendance. As a result, Peters has been named on the Forbes List as one of the top ten highest
    earning comics in North America in 2009, 2010, 2013 (finishing third), 2015 (fourth) and 2016.

    Peters who has transitioned his talents into both the small and big screens, recently starred in the
    Netflix limited series, The Indian Detective, alongside Anupam Kher and William Shatner. He also
    recently starred in the The Clapper opposite Amanda Seyfried, Ed Helms and Tracy Morgan;
    Supercon with John Malkovich and Ryan Kwanten; Ripped opposite Faizon Love; and,
    Adventures in Public School with Judy Greer. He recurs on the CBS hit show Life In Pieces, lent
    his voice alongside Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray and others in Disney’s adaptation of The
    Jungle Book and co-starred alongside legendary comedic actress, Carol Burnett, in Netflix’s nonscripted
    series A Little Help with Carol Burnett. He was a judge alongside Roseanne Barr and
    Keenan Ivory Wayans for NBC’s reboot of Last Comic Standing, and lent his voice to the
    animated feature, Ribbit, and to numerous episodes of the iconic animated Fox television show
    Family Guy, Bojack Horseman and Bob’s Burgers. He was also awarded a Gemini Award,
    Canada’s version of the Emmy, for hosting the country’s Juno Awards Show. Other notable film
    roles include the recent Jon Favreau directed indie smash hit Chef, the 2011 sci-fi movie Source
    Code, alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, the Canadian ice hockey hit Breakaway, where he also served
    as Executive Producer and the Eva Mendes indie, Girl in Progress alongside Mendes and Patricia
    Arquette. Among Peters’ many appearances, include stints on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,
    The Jimmy Fallon Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Lopez Tonight, Craig Ferguson, the Queen Latifah
    Show, Def Comedy Jam, Jay Leno’s Garage, Top Gear America and United Shades of America.

    Russell Peters was born and raised in Canada, after his parents had emigrated from India in the
    1960’s. From a solidly working-class family, Peters learned the value of levity from his father and
    Russell’s own observations on the family’s struggles with racism and multicultural differences.
    Peters has also given back to the community that embraced him by creating The Russell Peters
    North Peel Scholarship, rewarding deserving college students from his old high school with a
    $20,000.00 scholarship, and a generous donation to his hometown Brampton Civic Hospital,
    where their Palliative Services Wing was subsequently named after his late father. Peters has
    performed for the troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, Djibouti, Pearl Harbor, the USS Eisenhower aircraft
    carrier through the USO and on the Canadian vessel HMCS Winnipeg.

    Russell Peters resides in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. When not on tour he spends every day
    with his five-year-old daughter, Crystianna. He is an ardent DJ and hip-hop junkie who often gets
    offers for celebrity DJ gigs when on-tour and off. Though success seems to be at every turn for
    Peters, there are many more turns to come.

    “In the future, there won’t be any more black or white, or brown and white; everyone will
    just be beige.” – Russell Peters
