The last time he was here in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, it was in 2012 as part of his “Notorious World Tour 2012“. If we remember correctly, the ticket sales for that one did so well that 7,900 tickets for his show were snapped up in under three hours, beating some other countries to the chase. So much so that the organisers had no choice but to add a second show, due to (obvious) popular demand. But that comes as no surprise because world-famous Canadian comedian Russell Peters breaks comedy sales records wherever he sets foot on the globe.
Well, guess what? He has been around the globe, probably several times in the past 2 years, and now he’s coming back with a new tour!
“The Russell Peters Almost Famous World Tour” features all new material, plus his lightning fast improv with the audience.
“I like to interact with the front rows,” says Peters of his signature back and forth with the audience. “I use the interaction to take me from bit to bit. Some guys go on-stage with script and don’t deviate from it. That’s not my style. I have my set and know what I want to cover; I just use the audience to move me in certain directions. It’s very collaborative and each show is unique.”
This tour will mark Peters’ second performance in Malaysia. Russell Peters will be tickling Malaysians’ funny bones on 10th April 2015 at Stadium Malawati, Shah Alam.
The Almost Famous World Tour will also feature Russell’s Official Tour DJ’s; Toronto’s DJ Starting from Scratch and New York City’s DJ Spinbad, as well as video cameras and screens for an up-close and intimate show in an arena setting.
Ticket sales launch will be announced soon. Keep checking back with us because we’ll release the information as soon as we have ’em!
