(Newark, New Jersey - July 28, 2015) New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents an evening with Canada’s No. 1 stand-up comedian Russell Peters.

Russell Peters gives his latest takes on jobs he can understand, cell phones and dating, and unleashes his signature, lightning-fast improv on what’s sure to be a sold-out audience. “An exceptional comedian,” raves The Guardian. “He’s obviously a natural performer.” The show also features New York’s DJ Spinbad.

Peters’ last special, Notorious, was the first original comedy program for Netflix, which also supported a four-part documentary series, Russell Peters Vs. the World. Ranked on the Forbes List as one of the Top 10 highest earning comics in the U.S. since 2009, he has sold out arenas from Madison Square Garden to the Sydney Opera House, has performed for the troops overseas, and is a favorite on the late-night talk show circuit. His 2010 memoir, Call Me Russell, was a bestseller in his native Canada.

This performance contains adult content.
