Russell Peters is absolutely great and a must see show. I saw Russell Peters at Place des Arts with my business patner in September 2006 and we had a really good time.
For that show Russell Peters had Ruben Paul and Gavin Stevens were the special guests and were quite good. We have no idea who Peters' special guests will be this time around but they will certainly fit in with the kind of audience Peters attracts: a very diverse audience who enjoys intelligent, seemingly autogiographical, basically clean comedy.
We also noticed Russell Peters show featured all new material not on his Outsourced CD or DVD or on the Comedy Central special that has made its way on the internet. He is promising all new material again.
If you do not rush and get tickets the first day they go on sale "Somebody's gonna get a hurting" Tickets always go fast, real fast. There will be large video screens for those sitting a bit far away from the stage but part of the fun at seeing Russell Peters live is being close to the stage and praying you are the target of his gentle, respectful ribbing.
