The first comedian to record a Netflix Original Comedy Special, the Canadian comic has set attendance records across the world, from Canada to Singapore to Madison Square Garden, resulting in his nomination as ‘Billboard’s Top Touring Comic in 2015’. A man of many talents, Peters received 2017 Peabody ® and Emmy ® awards for his role as Executive Producer of the critically acclaimed Netflix documentary ‘Hip-Hop Evolution’, while has also transitioning his talents onto both the small and big screens.

Having recently played the lead role in the Netflix series ‘The Indian Detective’, the hugely popular funny-man has also starred in ‘The Clapper’, ‘Supercon’, ‘Adventures in Public School’, and many more.
