Dubai, UAE (April 6th, 2019): Global stand-up comedy superstar, Russell Peters will make his long-awaited return to the UAE, as he brings his Deported World Tour, produced by Live Nation Middle East and Flash Entertainment in association with Dubai Calendar, to Dubai Arena on June 6th. Peters’ previous appearances in Dubai rank among the fastest selling shows in the UAE, and The Emmy ® Gemini ® and Peabody ® award winning comedian’s show will be the first ever event staged at the new Dubai Arena, a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose venue at City Walk. Featuring all-new material and Peters’ signature audience interactions, the highly anticipated show will see the hit comic showcase his unique brand of humour and hilarious observational comedy style.

Named alongside such luminaries as Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Eddie Murphy in Rolling Stone’s recently released list of the ‘50 Best Comics of All Time’, Russell Peters success actually began with Youtube. After gaining critical and global recognition for his CTV ‘Comedy Now!’ special in 2004, Peters has since gone on to establish himself as a worldwide comedy phenomenon, becoming the first comedian to sell out Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. He has performed sell-out shows across the world, including Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, San Jose’s HP Pavilion, New Jersey’s Prudential Centre, the Chicago Theatre, LA’s Nokia Theatre, the Sydney Opera House, and the Hammersmith Apollo, and the specials from his tours have been broadcast on Showtime and Comedy Central.

The first comedian to record a Netflix Original Comedy Special, the Canadian comic has set attendance records across the world, from Canada to Singapore to Madison Square Garden, resulting in his nomination as ‘Billboard’s Top Touring Comic in 2015’. A man of many talents, Peters received 2017 Peabody ® and Emmy ® awards for his role as Executive Producer of the critically acclaimed Netflix documentary ‘Hip-Hop Evolution’, while has also transitioning his talents onto both the small and big screens. Having recently played the lead role in the Netflix series ‘The Indian Detective’, the hugely popular funny-man has also starred in ‘The Clapper’, ‘Supercon’, ‘Adventures in Public School’, and many more.

The Deported World Tour kicked off in Australia and New Zealand in February 2018. It 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 spend more time at home with his daughter.

Dubai Arena at City Walk is a new, state-of-the-art multi-purpose arena spanning an area of half-a-million square feet with an approximate capacity of 20,000. The Dubai Arena team will proudly welcome Russell Peters’ Deported World Tour as the very first show to be hosted at the brand-new venue. The venue will be the only all-purpose indoor air-conditioned arena of its size in the entire region and will boast an advanced infrastructure allowing it to accommodate mega events.
