Talking about the upcoming gig, Canadian comedian/actor/podcaster/writer/producer, Peters said:  ‘I haven’t been to Abu Dhabi since 2013 and this show will be my first international date since Covid. So I’m excited on so many levels and can’t wait to be back!’.

Peters’ observational humour frequently draws from the tapestry of cultural differences, which makes the melting pot of the UAE the ideal source and stage for his brand of humour. Expect spot-on accents, cultural controversy, wild lols and frank, unashamed tales of his own misadventures.

Russell Peters has a huge fan base here, so you can expect tickets to sell fast.
