Russell Peters – THE DEPORTED WORLD TOUR in Vilnius
Global comedy phenom RUSSELL PETERS will visit Lithuania for the first time ever. This will be the first and the only Peters’ show in the Baltic States
and this will be the part of his THE DEPORTED WORLD TOUR!
You have probably seen him on ‘Netflix’ or ‘YouTube’, but this show will feature ALL NEW MATERIAL, plus Peters’ signature interactions with the audience. Peters says, “I love getting to know my audience. It’s a collaboration between us.”
Peters returns to live touring after taking time off stage since the filming of his last special, Almost Famous for Netflix in April 2016 in Toronto. In between, he’s produced and starred in his own comedy-drama limited series for Netflix, The Indian Detective, available in Lithuania as well.
Peters has also appeared in, The Clapper with Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried and Tracy Morgan as well as Public Schooled with Judy Greer and yet unreleased Supercon with Ryan Kwanten and John Malkovich.
You can find three of his stand-up comedy specials on global ‘Netflix’ (yes, on Lithuanian as well) – these are ‘Almost Famous’, ‘Notorious’ and ‘Russell Peters vs. The World’.
THE DEPORTED WORLD TOUR will also feature one of David Letterman’s favourite comics, the legendary raconteur of weird stories, comedian Jake Johannsen.
THE DEPORTED WORLD TOUR will take Peters around the world with shows well into 2019. His last tour travelled to over 26 countries with over 200 performances and more than 300,000 fans in attendance.
With more than 1 million fans on his Facebook page, comedy’s global rock-star was listed on the Forbes list of Top Earning Comedians 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2016. His DVDs 'Outsourced', ‘Red, White and Brown’ and 'The Green Card Tour' sold over 350,000 copies, he has sold out Madison Square Garden, The Nokia Theatre Los Angeles, Sydney Opera House, The Hammersmith Apollo (four times), London’s O2 Arena, General Motors Place (Vancouver), The Saddle Dome (Calgary) and The Bell Centre (Montreal) and him selling the Vilnius Congress Hall is just a question of time!
He has performed with many top dogs of the industry, including Dave Chapelle, Dane Cook, Jon Lovitz, Craig Ferguson, George Carlin, Tracy Morgan, Chris Tucker, Damon Wayans, Lewis Black and many others!
The comedian is brought to you by the Lithuanian stand-up comedy crew Humoro klubas, who had already brought such comedians as Jimmy Carr, Dylan Moran, Bill Bailey, Luisa Omielan, Daniel Sloss and many others. The show is co-produced with Comedy Estonia and A Comic Soul.
“Russell Peters was one of the first stand-up comedians I have ever seen performing and till now he’s one of my idols. In 2012, when we have just started bringing foreign comedians to perform in Lithuania, I looked Peters’ management contacts up online and sent them an e-mail, inviting to perform here, he was one of the two comedians that I have tried to contact that way. Of course, I did not get any reply and the chance of him performing here looked as distant as the Moon, but six years later, after all the work we’re proud to bring Mr. Peters to Lithuania,” said Paulius Ambrazevičius, stand-up comedian and the head of Humoro klubas.
Not suitable for people under 16.
