Great comedy can bring people together. Some standups don't know how to relate to everyone. That's why you see instant backlash and isolated people at shows.
It is important to win the crowd over and get them on your side. Not everyone can do this effectively. Greatness takes time, dedication, and practice. The best in showbiz don't become famous overnight.
Russell Peters is one of the greats. He belongs in the best standup comedians conversation. You see Russell engages in risky behaviors and his audience loves him for that.
This comic will make fun of anybody. Hell, he'll even make fun of himself. When you're not afraid to tell jokes, you sell out crowds easier. Moreover, he tackles challenging subjects in a sarcastic manner.
Born in Toronto Canada, he qualifies as one of the funniest Canadians. Plus, his Indian background contributes a great deal to his material. You could compare him to Aziz Ansari but there is only one Russell Peters. Make no mistake, his style and delivery are unmistakeable.
Many of his jokes are unrepeatable, of course, because they are NSFW (Not Safe For Work). In other words, repeating his comedy at your job could get you fired. So, proceed with caution. Tread on thin ice if you don't want to offend anybody.
Everyone must know the importance of timing in standup comedy. Russell Peters delivers like Amazon, right on time. Right now is Russell Peters time to shine. The celebrity is singing You Are My Sunshine on his way to the bank. He has a lot to be happy about.
The 46-year-old is one of the highest paid comedians according to Forbes. He makes $21 million per year. That's almost as much as LeBron James' take home pay. I highly recommend watching his Almost Famous standup special. And I look forward to seeing his future work.
