Cape Town - Global comedy sensation, Russell Peters, will be returning to South Africa this weekend, bringing his unique brand of humour for a three-city tour around the country.

Known for his keen observations on cultural differences and the quirks that make each community unique, Russell Peters: Live, will be on stage tonight at the Durban ICC, followed by the SunBet Arena Time Square, Pretoria tomorrow, and GrandWest, Cape Town, on Sunday.
