Praise for Call Me Russell

"Russell is a powerful and attractive man . . . I predict he's going to be very popular in prison."
--Gene Simmons, KISS

"Sabes que? If I could get a passport, I'd be as internationally well-known as Russell Peters. When I think of Russell I think hilarious, global appeal, and BADASS!"
--George Lopez

"Russell Peters is not a comic's comic, he is not an Indian comic, and he is not a minority comic. He is a TRUE comic. His humor is not limited to one group, and in his wit and undeniable charm, we see how our differences make us all essentially the same. I am proud to call him a friend, a mentor, and, most importantly, my favorite Third-World immigrant."
--Lisa Lampanelli

"Russell has impeccable timing, prolific material, and a forehead that you can see from the last row of whatever arena he happens to be performing in. I truly look forward to the debut of Call Me Russell."
--Jeff Ross
