Hilarious Performance by the Best Stand-up Comedian Alive!

I was lucky to see Russell Peters on his last tour because he had limited performances in the United States.  He was so gut wrenching funny that I nearly fell on the floor laughing.  Last night I caught his Green Card Tour show at Radio City and he again delivered on of the most brilliantly funny live performances I have ever seen. 

Peters brings raw energy to his performance that I have not seen since the young days of Eddie Murphy.  No ethnicity is off-limits to Peters and he imitates them all will brilliant accent and flair.  Everything from Spanish (both Spain and Latin America), Irish, Italian (Brooklyn and Jersey Shore), Black, Chinese, Jewish, Jamaican, Arab, Slavic and off-course Indian (that includes Guyana and Trinidadian Indians).  Word of his prowess has spread because the prior concert appeared to have an audience of close to 50% Indian folk and this concert was a lot more mixed with every type of nationality and race in attendance.

Peters is great at making audience members targets and making them feel good while he is insulting them!  Peters has the uncanny abilty to recount experiences in different countries in such realistic fashion that the audience literally feels transported to the scene.

He is also the master of the facial expression and his body language always matches the person he is imitating.  He plays very limited engagements so if you can get a chance to see him in a city near you, jump on the chance!  Hopefully, these last two concerts will come to cable or a minimum DVD.  Check him out and I am sure you will agree with me!
