9 a home­town show from the king of com­edy

Toronto Life - - Culture -

Rus­sell Peters’ po­lit­i­cally in­cor­rect sen­si­bil­ity, paired with his per­spec­tive as a sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion Cana­dian, turned him into a global comedic icon. Over the past decade, he be­came the first co­me­dian to get a Net­flix stand-up spe­cial, broke a com­edy ticket sales record in the U.K. and hosted the largest stand-up show Aus­tralia has ever seen. His De­ported world tour kicked off ear­lier this year in Perth, and now he’s touch­ing down in Canada for a home­town per­for­mance. While the tour’s ti­tle sug­gests his rou­tine will be squarely aimed at you-know-who, fans can still ex­pect the self-ef­fac­ing anec­dotes and off-colour hu­mour that the king of com­fort-food com­edy is known for.
