“The Russell Peters Almost Famous World Tour” features ALL NEW MATERIAL, plus Peters’ lightening fast improv with the audience.  “I like to interact with the front rows,” says Peters of his signature back and forth with the audience.  “I use the interaction to take me from bit to bit.  Some guys go on-stage with a script and don’t deviate from it.  That’s not my style.  I have my set and know what I want to cover; I just use the audience to move me in certain directions.  It’s very collaborative and each show is unique.”

This tour will mark Peters sixth performance at the Air Canada Centre, a feat no other comedian has achieved.  The Almost Famous World Tour will also take Peters to New York’s Madison Square Garden as well as Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre in November and December.  In February and March 2015, Peters will take the tour to Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, with more international dates to be announced later this year.  His last tour took Peters to 26 countries and over 200 performances, with over than 300,000 fans attending his shows globally.

Peters can currently be seen as a judge on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, alongside Roseanne Barr and Keenen Ivory Wayans.  Peters can also be seen in Jon Favreau’s critically acclaimed movie, Chef.
