Warning: contains profanity and a journey into the subconscious
In 2009 and 2010, Forbes ranked Russell Peters as one of the top ten highest grossing comics in the U.S. For fans, that comes as no surprise, as he's been hustling his comedy routine since 1998. With the observational eye of George Carlin (one of his biggest influences), the absurdity of Steve Martin, and a penchant for social criticism that resembles a hip-hop Aldous Huxley, Peters worked his way from his native Toronto to stints around the world. After YouTube clips of his performance on Canada's Comedy Now! went viral, he was soon selling out amphitheaters and racking up tremendous DVD sales with comedy specials such as Outsourced, Red, White, and Brown, and The Green Card Tour: Live from the O2 Arena. Now, the comic maestro takes a break from the development of his latest NBC sitcom, I'm With Russell, to conduct waves of laughter as he takes on matters such as the cultural climate, romantic foibles, and his disdain for ethnic stereotypes.
Comix at Foxwoods Resort Casino
Located amid Mashantucket's rolling hills in the middle of the Foxwoods Resort Casino, Comix treats audiences to shows by the country's top touring performers. The club hosts national headliners, up-and-comers, and musical acts; its shows in the 1,400-seat Fox Theater give jokesters the chance to share their act with a larger but still intimate crowd; and its shows in the 4,000-person MGM Grand Theater host such superstars as Louis C.K., Jim Gaffigan, and Margaret Cho. Before shows, guests can take advantage of happy hour, perusing a menu of tasty appetizers and drinks.
