Comedy Sensation Russell Peters Premieres Latest Stand-Up And Docu-Series October 14 Only On Netflix

Highly Anticipated 70-minute Stand-up Comedy "Notorious" to Premiere Exclusively on Netflix

Four-Part Docu-series "Russell Peters vs. the World" Chronicling his Comedy Tour to Also Launch

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 3, 2013 -- Netflix will premiere the Netflix comedy special "Notorious" and docu-series "Russell Peters vs. the World" on Monday, October 14th at 12:01 AM. Peters' 70-minute stand-up comedy performance and four part docu-series following Peters on his global Notorious tour will be available to stream in all territories where Netflix is available - U.S., Canada, the UK, Ireland, Latin America, the Nordics and the Netherlands.

"Russell's genius is his uncanny gift to identify the idiosyncratic within all of us," says Lisa Nishimura, VP of Originals, Netflix. "He is prolific, fresh and a global force that will resonate with our members around the world."

"I've always prided myself on being outside the box and slightly ahead of the curve, which is why Netflix is the perfect fit for me," says Peters. "Plus, the web took my career to a whole other level - we both owe a lot to the Internet."

Filmed live at the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia on March 15, 2013, "Notorious" features global phenomenon Peters as he brings his laugh-out-loud observational comedy to audiences for his world tour of the same name. He uses humor and blends in stories about his Anglo-Indian family to touch on racial, ethnic, class and cultural stereotypes.

Peters has sold-out arenas from Madison Square Garden to the Sydney Opera House, and his Notorious World Tour has become the highest attended comedy tour in the history of Australia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Lebanon, South Africa, Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and his home country of Canada, selling over 300,000 tickets globally. "Russell Peters vs. the World" will chronicle Peters behind the scenes of that tour.

Previous stand-up performances "Russell Peters: Red, White and Brown", "Russell Peters: The Green Card Tour", and "Russell Peters: Outsourced" are currently available on Netflix.

"Notorious" and "Russell Peters vs. the World" is executive produced by Russell Peters and Clayton Peters.

On November 10th, 2012 Peters became the first comedian to play Brooklyn's new Barclays Center. Over 10,000 fans attended the show, making it the largest comedy show ever in the history of the New York City borough.

Peters' last special, The Green Card Tour LIVE From the O2 Arena, was recorded in London in 2010. The special was broadcast on Showtime, Comedy Central and Netflix USA and Netflix UK.

In 2009, Peters set a UK attendance record for the highest attendance for a one-off comedy show with over 16,000 fans attending his show at the O2 Arena. Peters also went on to have the highest attended comedy shows at Sydney, Australia's Acer Arena and Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena in 2010.

Starting in 2008, Peters was one of the first stand-up comedians to self-finance, self-produce and distribute his own comedy specials and DVDs, with Red, White and Brown and 2011's, The Green Card Tour LIVE from the O2 Arena. The DVDs went on to sell over 250,000 units across North America.

Listed on this year's Forbes List as one of the top five Highest Earning Comics in the U.S., Russell Peters has spent the past 24 years building a career to become one of the biggest comics in the world.
