Russell Peters performs to sell-out stadium crowds around the world, poking fun at race, culture, his immigrant family, and anything else he sets in his sights on. In this candid memoir, he chronicles his life from humble beginnings as a scrawny, bullied, brown kid with ADD growing up in an immigrant family in Canada through his remarkable rise to become one of the world's most beloved, top-earning comics. He has been called Indo-Canadian, Anglo-Indian, South-Asian, South-Asian-Canadian, and, of course, totally hilarious, but in this book you will meet the real Russell Peters, both the comic and the man. You can call him Russell.
