Global comedy superstar Russell Peters is thrilled to announce his brand new “Deported World Tour” is making a stop in Reno at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino on Saturday, Feb. 23. The Emmy®, Gemini® and Peabody® award winning comic will bring his unique and sometimes controversial brand of humor to town for one night only.
Peters’ new show features all new material including plenty of Russell’s signature audience interactions. He returns to live touring after taking time off to film his smash hit CTV/Netflix series “The Indian Detective.” Peters can also be seen in the films, “The Clapper” with Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried and Tracy Morgan as well as “Supercon” with Ryan Kwanten and John Malkovich and “Adventures in Public School” with Judy Greer.
The Deported World Tour kicked off in Australia and New Zealand in February 2018 and has already traveled to over 29 cities in 20 countries and been seen by over 100,00 fans worldwide. After the tour stops in Reno, Peters will take an extended break from live touring to focus on other ventures and spend more time at home with his daughter.
Listed on the Forbes List as one of the top ten Highest Earning Comics in the U.S. since 2009, Peters has spent the last 29 years building a career to become one of the biggest comics in the world. Thanks to YouTube and his 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 the 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, Showtime and Comedy Central.
