Comedian Russell Peters returns to the UAE for a one-night event in Abu Dhabi

Comedian actor Russell Peters will return to the UAE for a one-night event to be held on September 17 in Abu Dhabi.

The comedy concert, hosted at the newly opened Etihad Arena on Yas Island, will bring the popular Canadian stand-up of Indian origin to Abu Dhabi after almost eight years.

‘I’ve not been to Abu Dhabi since 2013 and this show will be my first international date since Covid. So I am excited on so many levels and can not wait to be back! ‚ÄúPeters said in a statement.

Peters last performed in Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena in June 2019 to a sold-out crowd as part of his ‘Deported World Tour’. Loud humor may be a learned taste, but Peters is a legend on the comedy track for his color report.

Peters is currently developing a number of TV shows and recently released his own podcast, ‘Culturally Canceled’.

Organized by GME Events, in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism, and Yas Island, tickets for the concert are on sale now, from Dh195 and available online via the Eithad Arena website.

Precautions will be put in place to ensure the health and safety of visitors. At the moment, visitors and residents of Abu Dhabi need a ‘green pass’ from the Al Hosn app to attend public events.
