Global comedy phenomenon Russell Peters brings his Deported World Tour to Japan on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 in Tokyo at Hilton hall.
I’m thrilled to finally be coming to Japan!!! It’s been on my bucket list for many years and now it’s becoming a reality!!
– Russell Peters
The show features 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.”
This will be Russells first time ever performing in Japan. “I’ve been building the new act in clubs across the States over the past year and I’m very happy with it.”
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. The Indian Detective also stars Anupam Kher (The Big Sick, Silver Linings Playbook), William Shatner (Star Trek), Christina Cole (Suits, Casino Royale), Mishqah Parthiephal (Keeping Up with the Kandasamys). The Indian Detective will air in December on Netflix globally.
Peters has also appeared in the still unreleased films, The Clapper with Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried and Tracy Morgan as well as Supercon with Ryan Kwanten and John Malkovich, and Public Schooled with Judy Greer.
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.
