About Russell Peters

Canadian comedian, actor, and producer Russell Dominic Peters is a true master of the craft. Since his initial stand-up performance in Toronto back in 1989, he has gone on to win a prestigious Gemini Award for excellence in 2008. In 2013, he achieved a remarkable feat: rising to the third spot on Forbes' list of highest-paid comedians and becoming the first comedian ever to get a Netflix stand-up special. This is proof that his hard work had paid off and was only indicative of what was yet to come for him in the years ahead. Not only did he win the prestigious Peabody Award, but also an International Emmy Award for Best Arts Programming due to his production of Hip-Hop Evolution (2016). Back in 1992, Peters had the chance to meet George Carlin, one of his biggest mentors - who gave him an invaluable piece of advice: seize any opportunity to perform on stage. Peters recollected Carlin's advice, stating that it "truly shaped the person I am today." 

Eventually in 2007 - 15 years later - Peters was honored to host one of the last Russell Peters shows before Carlin's untimely death. On September 28, 2013, the Association of South Asians in Media, Marketing, and Entertainment (ASAMME) presented Peters with their prestigious Trailblazer Award for his unparalleled contributions to comedy. He is one of few South Asians who have attained worldwide success within this field - laying a trail for others to follow. In 2017, Peters graced the third episode of season one of Top Gear America as a special guest. Peters has maintained his place amongst the most lucrative comedians, with Forbes estimating he earned a whopping $15 million between June 2009 to 2010. His most recent TV series, The Indian Detective was an instant sensation in Canada and quickly became the highest-viewed show of all time. Not only that, but this TV special also received worldwide recognition after being released on Netflix! Furthermore, in 2013 Peters' net worth rose even further - an estimated total of $21 million! It is no wonder why Forbes ranked him as the third-highest-paid comedian after earning just $5 million the prior year.

This 2024, get ready for a laughter-filled evening as Russell Peters takes the stage at the magnificent MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland. Prepare to be entertained like never before! Russell Peters shared with WTOP, "I'll be performing my act, but you never know what surprises lie ahead." "I engage with the crowd frequently, which means that the outcome is just as unpredictable for me as it is for you. It's a delightful surprise for all of us. However, I must mention that if you are easily affected, I kindly request that you refrain from attending." According to Russell Peters, the lineup included comedy legends such as George Carlin, Don Rickles, Cheech & Chong, Eddie Murphy, and Steve Martin. “During the '70s and '80s, when I was immersed in the world of comedy, the primary medium for experiencing it was through listening rather than watching. Comedy albums and radio shows were the channels through which we indulged in laughter. The option to watch comedy didn't become widely available until the mid-'80s.
