Get set for an outrageous night…

It seems like Abu Dhabi can’t get enough of Canadian comedy superstar Russell Peters (or he can’t get enough of us), as he is once again returning to the capital in November 2023.

The popular comedian is gracing the stage at Etihad Arena on Yas Island for one night only, on Thursday, November 23. However, this time it is a bit more special for both, attendees in the capital and Peters, as the show – Russell Peters Act Your Age will be filmed as part of the comedian’s highly anticipated new stand-up special live on-stage.

Russell has been to the UAE a number of times now, performing across Abu Dhabi and Dubai. He was the very first performer at the Coca-Cola Arena in 2019 when it opened its doors.

If you aren’t sure of who Russell Peters is, you may recognize him from his very popular phrases including ‘Somebody Gonna Get Hurt Real Bad’, ‘Be a man, do the right thing!’, ‘Take it… and go! Take-it-and-go!’, and many more.

The Brampton, Ontario-born entertainer comes to town following years (and years…) of having arenas laughing hysterically with his antics and lightning-fast wit on stage. He was also recently honoured as one of Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Comics of All Time, and has snapped up a number of awards including the Gemini, Peabody, Emmy, and Canadian Screen Awards for his hosting, producing, and acting talents.

Over the course of his worldwide tours, he has broken attendance records at renowned venues worldwide, including at New York’s Madison Square Garden, The Sydney Opera House, and London’s O2 Arena. And he may just sell out once again when he returns to Abu Dhabi in November.
