The Canadian stand-up started in comedy at 19, doing open mics in his native Toronto, and spent the next 15 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 and soon became the first comedian to sell-out Toronto’s Air Canada Centre in 2007.

Peters went on to set attendance records at venues from Madison Square Garden to The Sydney Opera House to London’s O2 Arena – where he broke the UK attendance record for highest number of tickets sold for an individual comedy show.

His subsequent tours were captured in his successful specials broadcast on Showtime and Comedy Central: Outsourced in 2006; Red, White and Brown in 2008; and, The Green Card Tour in 2010. In 2013, Peters became the first comedian to create a Netflix Original Comedy Special. He’s been awarded Gemini, Peabody, Emmy and Canadian Screen Awards for his hosting, producing and acting talents. His last TV series, The Indian Detective set a Canadian viewership record for Bell Media/CTV in 2017 and was released globally on Netflix.

Peters just launched his own podcast, Culturally Cancelled with Russell Peters and is currently developing a TV series based on his childhood in Canada in the 1980s as well as executive producing the TV series Late Bloomer with YouTuber Jus Reign.
