Named one of the best 50 comics of all time, the WTF Festival is thrilled to have legendary comedy superstar Russell Peters on stage at the Essar Centre as the headline show.
Russell has sold out the major venues across the nation and around the globe. He was the first comedian to sell out the Air Canada Centre, not once, but four times. Hailing from Brampton, Ontario, Russell is a three time Gemini Award nominee, has appeared on hit TV shows including the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and the Jimmy Fallon Show. Most recently, Peters stars in the new hit TV series the Indian Detective.
Starting in 2017, Russell will be back on the road for his Deported World Tour where he will be showcasing his new material to audiences around the world.
