Toronto, April 1 (CINEWS): Russel Peters is a household name and most South Asians have either caught him live on stage over the years or watched him on You Tube. And now for those diehard fans, tickets for his tour finale at Massey Hall go on sale March 30.
After over 250 shows in 120 cities across 25 countries Peters is scheduled to wrap his two-year Almost Famous world tour with two shows at Toronto’s Massey Hall on April 26 and 27.
Both shows will be recorded for his new Netflix special.
General tickets go on sale for both shows Wednesday, March 30 at 10 a.m.
Tickets can be bought in person at the Roy Thomson Hall Box Office at 60 Simcoe St., by phone at 416-872-4255 or online at www.masseyhall.com.
“The last special I shot in Toronto was in 2003 and that special is the reason I am where I am today,” said Peters. “I wanted to go back to my roots and perform for the fans that were there from the beginning.”
Peters attended school in Brampton, honed his stand-up career in 1989 at Yuk Yuk’s Comedy Club at Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue in Toronto.
At his peak he performed in venues such as Madison Square. He’s appeared on dozens of television shows like The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and is listed in Forbes Magazine as one of the top 10 highest earning comics in the U.S.
He also remains active in the Brampton community – donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to charitable causes such as the William Osler Health Centre and a scholarship for graduating students at his former high school.
How will he deal with life after fame however may not be such a laughing matter.
