BILOXI, Miss. - Global comedy superstar Russell Peters makes a stop at Beau Rivage Theatre on Aug. 16 as part of his Deported World Tour.  The Emmy®, Gemini® and Peabody® award-winning comic will perform his unique and sometimes controversial brand of humor intertwined with plenty of his signature audience interactions. 

Peters returns to live touring after taking time off to film his smash hit CTV/Netflix series “The Indian Detective.” “The Indian Detective” also stars Anupam Kher (“The Big Sick,” “Silver Linings Playbook”), William Shatner (“Star Trek”), Christina Cole (“Suits,” “Casino Royale”) and Mishqah Parthiephal (“Keeping Up with the Kandasamys”).

Peters can also be seen in the films, “The Clapper” with Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried and Tracy Morgan, as well as “Supercon” with Ryan Kwanten and John Malkovich and “Adventures in Public School” with Judy Greer.

The Deported World Tour kicked off in Australia and New Zealand in February 2018 and has already travelled to more than 40 cities in 20 countries and been seen by more than 100,000 fans worldwide.

Listed by Forbes as one of the Top 10 Highest Earning Comics in the U.S. since 2009, Peters has spent the last 29 years building a career to become one of the biggest comics in the world. Thanks to YouTube and his global following, Peters has sold-out arenas from Madison Square Garden to the Sydney Opera House.
