Album Review

A standup of East Indian descent who lives in Canada, Russell Peters has been wowing audiences live and on the net, but his fanbase shrinks once you leave the Great White North, at least that's the way it was until 2006. The Outsourced CD and DVD is his big push South and while it's wonderful to see this talented man catch a big break, he runs the risk of being lumped in with the also rising Carlos Mencia, another "minority comedian" making waves in America using racial stereotypes freely, loosely, and abundantly. While both Peters and Mencia focus on the cultural divides in North America, their plan of attack is extremely different, with Peters being a loose, free-flowing combination of Carlin and Cosby who's rarely as aggressive as Mencia's juiced-up act. Peters is much more foul-mouthed, too, exploring the fringes of good taste like Carlin at his best. Cosby is brought to mind through Peters' effortless yet engaging delivery, plus a cast of characters with kids running around and bouncing off walls while their parents deal with frayed nerves and a never-ending quest for peace and order. The closing "Somebody Gonna Get a Hurt" — where a young Peters gets some very bad advice on how to talk back to his parents — is the best example of this, and the routine also provides the man's big catch phrase "somebody gonna get a hurt," which is to Peters what "well excuuuuuuse me!" is to Steve Martin. The performance as a whole almost plays like an off-Broadway one-man show with every routine working together, gradually strolling to a dramatic conclusion. Riffing on race the whole way through, Outsourced's focus is narrow, but it's hilarious and a great introduction to this talented comedian.

Comedy doesn't get any better

I'm thrilled that Russell is starting to catch on in a big way. I have seen him twice and let me tell you, he didn't just make me laugh, he made me whimper. Have you ever seen a horror film and thought "Look away from the screen before something makes you jump"? Russell has made me laugh so hard that I felt I was going to pass out. I tried to avert my eyes thinking "Don't look, they will be picking you up the floor", but sometimes you can't help but stare into the sun! Buy this one now, you won't regret it!


Funny content, excellent accents, and he can pop-lock too! His style is refreshingly different from the comics who were influenced by the great Richard Pryor. Very entertaining for a wide range of cultures especially the Asian community.

For all of us filthy downloaders :D

My husband and I have been awaiting for this album for a long time! Russell Peters is one of these raising stars in North American comedy, he portrays the very diverse (and funny) society that we are part of, in a way that we have never seen before. Because he is unabashed about his observations, he ends up given an extremely accurate representation of the perceptions that we all have towards diversity. We are both immigrants, I am French and Chinese, my husband is Indian, so this humor really hits home. And even though we may feel sometime self-conscious about his remarks, we end up laughing about ourselves as much as we laugh about others. Hopefully this album can be downloaded as a video on iTunes soon!

A standup comedian of East Indian descent, Russell Peters built a solid following in his native Canada beginning in 1989. It was then that he hit the comedy clubs with an act drawing upon the racism he had experienced during his childhood and teens. His hilarious and controversial act took him from the amateur stages to comedy festivals across Canada. Soon he was on tour in the U.S., the U.K, and other parts of the globe, and while this helped spread his name, it was the Internet that made him a...
