Global comedy superstar Russell Peters is thrilled to announce he will be adding new Canadian dates in his return to his home and native land as part of his brand new Deported World Tour this fall. The Emmy®, Gemini® and Peabody® award winning comic will perform a limited thirteen market arena tour bringing his unique and sometimes controversial brand of humor home once again. Peters’ new show features all new material including plenty of Russell’s signature audience interactions.

The tour will continue well into 2019 and Peters will then take an extended break from live touring to focus on other ventures and spend more time at home with his daughter.
