FANS of international comedy star Russell Peters will not have to wait much longer as the day of his performance in Bahrain draws near.
Held as part of his ‘The Deported World Tour’, his show will be held on Saturday at the Bahrain International Exhibition and Convention Centre, Sanabis.
The tour, which kickstarted in Australia and New Zealand in February last year, has travelled to more than 40 cities in 20 countries.
The stand-up comedian’s GCC tour includes shows in the UAE, Kuwait, Oman and two performances in Saudi Arabia.
Mr Peters’ return to touring comes after taking time off stage since the filming of his last special, Almost Famous, for Netflix in April 2016.
During this time, he has produced and starred in his own comedy-drama limited series for Netflix, The Indian Detective, which stars Anupam Kher, William Shatner, Christina Cole and Mishqah Parthiephal.
He has also appeared in a number of films including The Clapper with Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried and Tracy Morgan, Supercon with Ryan Kwanten and John Malkovich, and Public Schooled with Judy Greer.
The latest tour also features one of David Letterman’s favourite comics, the legendary raconteur of weird stories, comedian Jake Johannsen.
Mr Peters’ previous tour travelled to more than 26 countries with over 200 performances and more than 300,000 fans in attendance.
