Prepare to laugh until it hurts: As part of his highly successful ‘Deported’ world tour, comedian Russell Peters is coming to Grande Prairie’s Revolution Place Arena on Saturday, November 3.

The Grande Prairie show is part of the Emmy, Gemini and Peabody award-winning comic’s limited 13-location arena tour of Canada.

The tour kicked off in Australia and New Zealand in February and has already travelled to over 29 cities in 20 countries and been seen by over 100,000 fans worldwide. The tour will continue well into 2019 and Peters will then take an extended break from live touring to focus on other ventures and to spend more time at home with his daughter.

Peters has returned to live touring after taking time off stage since the filming of his last special, Almost Famous for Netflix in April 2016 in Toronto. In between, he’s produced and starred in his own comedy-drama limited series for Netflix, The Indian Detective. The Indian Detective also stars Anupam Kher (The Big Sick, Silver Linings Playbook), William Shatner (Star Trek), Christina Cole (Suits, Casino Royale) and Mishqah Parthiephal (Keeping Up with the Kandasamys).

Peters has also recently appeared in The Clapper with Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried and Tracy Morgan, as well as Supercon with Ryan Kwanten and John Malkovich, and Public Schooled with Judy Greer.
The Deported world tour also features one of David Letterman’s favourite comics, the legendary raconteur of weird stories, comedian Jake Johannsen.

Tickets are $100 plus taxes and service fees, and can be bought on the Revolution Place website.
