Peters, RussellComedian (Canada)
Stand-up comic Russell Peters is quickly emerging as Canada's fastest-rising comedy star. Gemini award winning Canadian comic Russell Peters is known for a cheeky brand of comedy, that is rude and laddishness without being offensive to the females in the audience. With Asian roots, Russell explores attitudes towards race in a way that is fresh, surprising and hard-hitting. At times controversial, Russell combines his observations with a likeable stage persona and a cheeky grin. He's the country's leading comedic spokesperson on clashing cultures.

Russell is the son of Eric Peters, one time Editor of Anglo-Indians In Touch newsletter.
