Russell Peters brings riotous laughter to Riyadh

The comedian will be in the capital on 24 February.

Guess who’s making a hilarious pitstop in Riyadh? Emmy Award winner and comedic maestro, Russell Peters, is heading to the Saudi Arabia capital for an evening of mad laughter. Mark your calendars for 24 February, as Princess Nourah University Theatre is set to host the comedy event.

Russell is a comedy legend hailing from Toronto, Canada. Known for his lightning-quick wit, spot-on timing, and unforgettable audience interactions, he is the real deal in the stand-up world. Growing up of Anglo-Indian descent, he hit the comedy scene when he was 19 years old and skyrocketed to global fame with CTV’s Comedy Now. He’s also got a ton of awards such as the Emmy, Gemini and Peabody – for his stellar hosting, producing, and acting.

Russell’s upcoming show in Riyadh won’t be his first rodeo in Saudi Arabia. He came to Riyadh with his Almost Famous World Tour in 2016, taking the capital by storm. He also performed in AlUla last year at Maraya. This time around, he’s set to bring an even more unique brand of humour to the stage.

Russell has been on a comedy adventure in the Middle East. Recently, he made a pitstop in Abu Dhabi to film his new comedy special, leaving audiences in stitches with his trademark humour. The UAE has become a frequent destination for Russell, and fans in the region can’t get enough of his infectious laughter.

So don’t miss the chance to be part of this comedy extravaganza. Secure your tickets now.
