Comedian Russell Peters coming to South Africa!

2014-12-05 17:00

Johannesburg  – After setting attendance records around the world and completing one of the biggest comedy tours ever with his Notorious World Tour in 2012, comedian Russell Peters announces the launch of his new Almost Famous World Tour and is bringing it to South Africa early next year (2015)

Straight off of NBC's Hit show, Last Comic Standing and the critically acclaimed movie, Chef, Canada's number one stand-up export, Russell Peters returns with all new material for his Almost Famous World Tour.

“The Russell Peters Almost Famous World Tour” features all new material, plus Peters’ lightning 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.”

The South African tour dates are:

30th January 2015 – Durban ICC Arena
31st January 2015 – Grand Arena, GrandWest, Cape Town
5th & 6th February 2015 – Big Top Arena, Carnival City
