After setting attendance records around the world and completing one of the biggest comedy tours ever with his Notorious World Tour in 2013, comedian Russell Peters returns to New Zealand
with his new Almost Famous World Tour 2015.

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 return to the Allphones Arena in Sydney where he holds the attendance record for a comedy show, 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. His last tour took Peters to 26 countries and over 200 performances, with over more
than 300,000 fans attending his shows globally.

In the US, Russell 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.

The Almost Famous World Tour will also feature Russell's Official Tour DJ's; Toronto's DJStarting From Scratch and New York City's DJ Spinbad, as well as video cameras and screens for an up-close
and intimate show in an arena setting.

Starting in 2008, Russell was one of the first stand-up comedians to self-finance, self-produce and distribute his own comedy specials and DVD’s, with Red, White and Brown and 2011’s, The Green Card Tour LIVE
from the O2 Arena. The DVD’s went on to sell over 350,000 units across North America. His last special, Notorious, which was filmed in Australia during his last tour, was the first original comedy special for Netflix. Notorious was also supported by a four-part documentary series, Russell Peters Vs The World. Peters currently has over seven hours of content on Netflix.

Russell has given away more than a million dollars over the past several years to various charities, from the Brampton Civic Hospital, to Heart House Hospice, Gilda’s Club, the MS Society and a scholarship at
his old high-school, The Russell Peters North Peel Scholarship to send a deserving student to college. The scholarship is now in its fifth year.

Listed on the Forbes List as one of the Top Ten Highest Earning Comics in the U.S. since 2009, Russell Peters has spent the past 25 years building a career tobecome one of the biggest comics in the world.
Thanks to YouTube and a global following, Peters has sold-out arenas from Madison Square Garden to the Sydney Opera House. Peters has also performed for the troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and on the
USS Eisenhower and HMCS Winnipeg, and appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Lopez Tonight, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and on HBO, CNN, MTV, BBC and Al Jazeera. Peters’ 2010 memoir, Call Me Russell was a Globe and Mail number one bestseller in Canada.
