When you think of comedy, it’s hard not to think about Russell Peters. The Indian-Canadian has taken the comedy world by storm ever since he debuted on stage in 1989. Ever since then, Peters has toured all over the world, hosted several award shows, and has established himself as one of the funniest comedians of all time.
Recently, Peters was awarded the Outstanding Achievement in the Arts award at the 2011 Asian Awards. This prestigious award was given to Peters for his relentless work and international achievement as he sold out shows left and right throughout the world. We would like to congratulate Russell Peters for receiving this award and we look forward to his new material in 2012.
