It's easy to see why the multiethnic audience at a Russell Peters' comedy show goes into hysterics over his racial jokes. Even when commenting on stereotypes--for example, that Indian people are cheap and proud of it--Peters' characterizations are uncannily personal. It's not "He's Indian so he can make fun of Indian people and get away with it"; he makes fun of Asian, Latino, Arab, black, and white people too, and every time he imitates an accent or takes on a persona, he always seems to portray them from the inside. It goes beyond making a political point; it just feels casually, effortlessly human. And it's that casual humanity that makes it very, very funny. Topics range from a fairly sophisticated parsing of race and culture to a decidedly lowbrow discussion of body hair and male enhancement, but throughout Peters' lack of pretension and unforced decency shines through. Be warned, many of his jokes are full of sexual and scatological references, and he has a startling routine about the deaf that will put some politically correct noses out of joint. If you think this sounds offensive, then Russell Peters is not for you--but that's your problem, not his. Red, White and Brown has bonus material that, startlingly enough, is actually funny (his merciless teasing of an Asian man and woman in the audience will make you cringe and laugh at the same time). Also included is a CD version of the exact same concert, though Peters' expressive face is a big part of his act and not to be missed. --Bret Fetzer

Gut-bursting, pee-in-your pants comedy! It's that hilarious, enjoyable and extremely funny! Russell Peters is unleashed in `Red, White & Brown'. One of the top comedians right now and he truly delivers with his latest DVD release!

The Canadian stand-up comic won people over with his Comedy Central special "Russell Peters: Outsourced" back in 2006 and now the guy is just red hot!

His latest DVD release "Red, White and Brown" was recorded live at a sold-out audience at the WaMu Theater at Madison Square Garden and features material from his "HOMECOMING TOUR" and features 20 additional minutes not shown on the Comedy Central broadcast and also includes a full-length CD of the performance.

Featured on the DVD are the following segments:

1. Mele Mel Intro
2. DDR
3. Blame the Media
4. Cheap Indians Pt. 2
5. Louis Vuitton
6. Race vs. Culture
7. West Indians
8. Body Hair
9. World Cup
10. Deaf People
11. Credits

No one is spared in the audience. People in the audience of different ethnicity will be picked and utilized into his comedy routine as well as anyone in the audience. May it be the woman who gets up to go to the bathroom, to the man who brought his child to the performance, Russell Peters has a competent flow of comedy in which the pacing on the DVD is full of non-stop fun, one joke after the other and no pausing of laughter. Peter's comedy delivery, facial expressions of his comedy routine was done very well.

The accompany CD features the performance but where the DVD is about 1 hr. and 19 minutes, the CD is about 57 minutes long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good the second and third time! December 26, 2010
Verified Purchase
I was lucky to be in the audience when Peters came to New York and never laughed so hard at a comedian. Viewing the video a couple of times did not diminish how funny this comic genius it!. I guess my "mind was blasted." Peters knows how to play the audience well and things that happen in the audience only seemed to add to the jokes without any letup in the pace. Russell is a master of capturing different ethnic accents and no matter who he picked on, it seemed that those people laughed out loud.

Now I know that an Indian ghost is not scary and that there are different levels of cheapness among ethnicities. There is about 40 minutes of bonus features including routines from different shows, Russell taking a military plane to an aircraft carrier and scenes from his upcoming documentary. This is a must for anyone in need of a good laugh!

5.0 out of 5 stars Who is this guy, anyway? September 12, 2009
I first found Russell Peters by accident on youtube. I can't imagine how I could have been unaware of him for so long. This guy is the best new comedian (well, new to me anyway) that I've run across since I first saw Robin Williams on the Mork and Mindy show or Jim Carrey on In Living Color. You can, of course, get bits and pieces of his act from the Internet, but, for the real experience, I heartily recommend that you shell out a few bucks for the DVD's (they're pretty reasonably priced) and enjoy them in your nice comfy living room on your big screen TV. Of course, if you're offended by politically incorrect humor, then you probably don't have much of a sense of humor anyway, so you should probably just save your money. If you belong to an ethnic group - white, black, asian, hispanic, indian, arabic, canadian, english, german, italian, portugese, french, extraterrestrial or whatever - he WILL make fun of them! But none of it is mean spirited.

4.0 out of 5 stars crazily funny with some repitetion of some jokes February 18, 2009
It is so funny, russell came up with new jokes about Indians,Jews,Chinese and Arabs.
in many cases he connects the topics with each other in a fascinating way,
but sometimes he jumps to a new topic without any obvious connection.
He also, repeated some of his old jokes,
like him being hairy and proud of it,the haunted hotel etc.
but he puts some new favor to it.
Anyway, You should buy this one, it's so funny, you will not regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Russell Peters March 11, 2013

Good stand up by Russell Peters. Making fun of different races although his usual improv with the crowd seemed bit like he was just trying to fill time and seemed to drag. Bit pricey but still good Russell Peters Stand up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Hilarious Comedy December 29, 2009
[...]

But it's hilarious however you obtain it. RP is not only a great comedian, but he mimics the Indian, Chinese, Hispanic, Middle Eastern accents perfectly. The "sex" humor is a bit puerile, but still kind of funny. Luckily most of his comedy is about culture and the general silliness of humans.

Too bad Amazon doesn't sell it at a reasonable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny look at the world December 27, 2009
Verified Purchase
Russell Peters's Red, White, and Brown DVD is a great look at his take on the many nationalities in the world. Nobody is safe from his wit and his insight to specific culture is dead-on. You do have to know something about world culture in order to really understand his humor. The length is just right on this DVD.
