Russell the man


This was my first live gig of Russell Peters

I was in Singapore recently to catch the most popular stand-up comedian Russell Peters who is a Canadian. I wasn’t surprised to know that quite a lot of Bruneians flew to Singapore to catch his gig. I didn’t manage to catch all of my friends but only a few after the end of the show. Anyway, I didn’t expect much from Russell Peters. He’s an icon in the comedic scene. I’ve seen almost all his gigs on video and youtube and they were hilarious and tasteless. What actually makes him stand out is his observation skills and he is able to translate them with some humour. Another great gift he has is connecting with the the audience and he has a tendency to pick on random people in the front row seats and let his magic happen.

So why did I say I didn’t want to expect much? Well, I have seen some of his gigs and shows right after his most popular show Outsourced (back in 2006) and he hasn’t delivered the same impact though he was and still is funny. We are still stuck to his famous punchlines – “Somebody gonna get hurt real bad” and “Be a man!” and there hasn’t been new ones that stick to our mind. Believe it or not, I’m youtubing Outsourced right now and it’s still refreshing to watch 😀

Russell Peters played it safe this time round. He still poked fun at different races and nationalities – German, Mexican, a guy from Detroit, Liechtenstein, Indian, Kuwaiti, Italian, Singaporean, and Lebanese. However, there was an awkward moment when RP targeted a Lebanese lady but she declined to respond. Actually, it happened twice in a space of ten minutes, hoping she would interact back (and she even gave a zip it gesture which was caught on the big screen) so RP then shifted to another person, a Kuwaiti, who was two seats away from the Lebanese lady. I also realised that he didn’t relate too much on Singapore in his jokes. And this is the not first time he evaded topics or issues on Singapore. Last year in May 2012, he also avoided Singapore related topics and I wonder if his jokes were similar compared to last year’s. This could meant that he might be told not to poke too much fun on Singaporeans. Hmmm… 

The highlight moment for me was when RP picked out the four blue shirt guys from the crowd. Though he didn’t follow through with the joke, it was a sharp, witty moment that was so “RP”. Perhaps the thing that sticks in the crowd’s mind is Kevin Gandhi, one of the teen spectator, from India. It was pretty hilarious but too much focus was given on him and yes, I was a little tired and bored when he kept teasing Kevin near the end.

It was still a great show nonetheless and maybe it wasn’t anything new to look forward since it’s still the Notorious tour of last year’s. Will I come again if he does another gig in Singapore? Yes I would 😀 Verdict: 7/10

It was held at the Singapore Indoor Stadium and it was sell out gig with 27,000 in attendance

The security check point and you are not allowed to bring your SLR camera.

Su Li was my gig date and she was my ex-class mate from our years in Sunway College. So we haven not seen each other for 15 years and wow, she never heard of Russell Peters and she ended up enjoying the show

The show started with Ruben Paul and he was hilarious. I love his detective jokes.

It was such a packed event

This, I believe, was Russell Peter’s transport after the gig

It was packing time for the organisers

I caught up with friends from Brunei as we were hunting for supper

We ended having supper at seafood joint Jumbo.. Yumm!!!!
