Russell Peters is without a doubt one of the funniest mainstream comedians around; if you agree with this statement at all do not buy this DVD. Not only is this an unlicensed DVD (that's right, Peters' permission was never given, if you ever go to one of his stand up shows he makes sure to mention it) but it looks like some 11 year child manufactured it using a dot matrix printer. The CD looks like something that was labeled using a "CD Stomper" and the cover for the case is such poor quality that you can almost see the pixels in the Amazon pictures. The DVD itself is shoddily done, and overall looks like a two dollar production (or less).

If you are fan at all of Russell Peters, show support and buy the licensed DVD, not this rip off piece of garbage. I am disgusted that I didn't know sooner and actually purchased one of these DVDs.

As the previous reviewer mentioned: this is *unlicensed* material and RP gets NO money from it. Please don't purchase this if you wish to support the artist!

i am a huge russell peters fan, ive seen him in both canada and washington d.c., and i must say i was really disappointed with these older shows, they just didnt measure up to the level ive come to expect from him...if youre a fan stick with the outsourced dvd and his newer material, this just isnt worth the money

I first heard of Russell Peters when he performed in Singapore and quickly found snippets of his performance on YouTube. I fell in love with his comedy from the first time I saw it. This DVD is no different. He is amazing in his style and candid in his remarks - hallmarks of a great stand-up comedian.

Unlike Outsourced which is his most recent DVD, this title contains 2 of his performances (which is great - more bang for the buck). Both performances are fantastic though you will find that some of his jokes are recycled and repackaged in different forms, which is not uncommon for stand-up comedy.

That said, Russell Peters is hilarious, enchanting and totally engaging. I really enjoyed watching this DVD and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a hearty laugh and an overall good time (in the comfort of your living room). Well done, Russell!!

NOTE: From what I understand, this DVD isn't an "official" release by Russell Peters (unlike Outsourced). This has obviously caused problems, and I would recommend that people get Outsourced. Aside from that, this DVD is still a great watch if you're a fan of Russell Peters. It's a pity that he doesn't reap the rewards of this DVD since the performances are to-die-for!

The bulk of his act is about race jokes so if you're a little sensitive to that subject, consider this a warning. But personally I think he knows his boundaries and I don't think he crossed any lines. In fact I think he is one of the "tamer" stand up comics. I don't remember any unnecessary swearing and the sex jokes were minimal and discreet. And he has such an innocent and childlike "everyman" quality about him that I find appealing, just like Ray Romano and Jerry Seinfeld.

Grade: B+

The first time I saw Russell Peters on Comedy Now I couldn't stop laughing -- actually, I don't even think I've laughed harder. This DVD is fantastic for fans of his work and believe me, it just gets better everytime you watch it! I always say that a good comedian (scratch that, a great comedian!) who makes jokes of his own culture (including other cultures) is one that stands out above others. Russell is definitely one of those comedians!

Noooooooooooooo...Indiano!

I have both this dvd and Outsourced. As with most comics, Russell Peters gets better with age. Outsourced has stronger material so if you're only planning to buy one dvd, get Outsourced. However, with 90 minutes of Russell Peters on this dvd, it is a good value and worth buying if you're enjoying Outsourced and want more.

As far as the royalties issue goes, I am personally disgusted with Russell Peters for using his fans to get revenge against the company that put out this dvd. Leave the fans out of your legal battles. It's not our fault.

Definitely on my SHORT list of best comedies. Having worked and become friends with various ethnic groups Russel Peters really nailed the impressions. We need to find joy in our differences. Thank you so much!
