Comedy star Russell Peters brings his Act Your Age World Tour to AlUla

The world-renowned comedian has been working on new material for his show, and Saudi Arabia will get a peek at it…

Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for global stand-up legend Russell Peters. He will be the first comedian to grace the stage of the award-winning Maraya this weekend with his wit and tart tongue.

On February 18, Peters will be performing for one night only, promising all-new material as he brings his Act Your Age World Tour to AlUla.

In this stand-up set, he will deliver his hilarious takes on cancel culture, ageing, and the current state of the world.

Peters was recently named one of Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Comics of All Time. He started doing stand-up at the age of 19 at open mics in his native Toronto and has since performed in over 20 countries. Peters’ first act in Saudi Arabia was in 2016 in Riyadh.

The award-winning comedian has also set attendance records at venues, including Madison Square Garden, The Sydney Opera House and London’s O2 Arena, where he broke the UK attendance record for the highest number of tickets sold for an individual comedy show.

Peters just launched his Act Your Age World Tour in Cairo in December and has seen sold-out shows in Abu Dhabi, Amman, Chicago, New York, Washington DC, and Houston. He can also be seen in Paramount Pictures’ Clifford The Big Red Dog.

Tickets will undoubtedly sell fast for the popular and provocative comedian, the first in the comedy category to be part of the AlUla events calendar.

Maraya’s intimate auditorium is more commonly filled with music, having recently hosted international superstars Andrea Bocelli and Alicia Keys, and is also set to welcome Seal on February 17.

But this time around, expect laughter to fill the largest mirrored building. Side-splitting laughter. And lots of it.

Russell Peters at Maraya, AlUla, Feb 18, 8.30pm. Early bird prices start from SAR330 per person. Book your tickets here.
