Comedian Russell Peters is headed back to Riyadh

Brace for the LOLs…

Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands together for global stand-up legend Russell Peters’ return to Riyadh.

Coming by early next year on Saturday February 24, the Canadian comedian rose to fame for his CTV ComedyNow! special in 2004.

Russell Peters will be taking the Princess Nourah University. The Emmy award-winning comic brings his unique brand of humor to the stage with his latest world tour.

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, also 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.

The comedian also graced the AlUla stage last year, becoming the first comedian to take the stage of the award-winning Maraya.

Tickets for the major gig have already gone on sale. Tiers include Silver starting at SAR395, Gold starting at SAR595, Diamond starting at SAR650, and Balcony starting at SAR695. Book yours here.
