Being a weekend, the traffic was under control. The organizers did extremely well by placing their staff all over the venue to guide the crowd thru collecting their tickets and getting to their seats.
We were lucky to get our selves some very good tickets on the South Entrance which was on right side of the stage. The was the same announcement that kept repeating again and again reminding the crowd not to record or use any electronic devices during the show or they will be ejected.
Taking the stage first was DJ Spinbad . He played a 30 minute set on the decks and i love his performance. It was very evident that he was all about the music unlike many deejay’s who are about the showmanship.
Next up was Andrew Netto, a local act who came out to kick-start the show. He was very good! With the local touch i was impressed and will be checking out his full shows soon!
Up next was Russell Peters official opening act for his Notorious Tour, Joey Medina . Joey Medina is a very funny guy, a former boxer who fought many tittle fights , which he obviously didn’t win according to Russell Peters .. so he ended up in comedy :p
Finally Russell Peter’s toke on the stage! The crowd went crazy to see him hit the stage. While there was some fear that he might come out with the same jokes that we are used too. Boy did he live up to expectations! The whole set was brand new and jokes and content that we have not heard about! As usual the first row had it coming. A blond Malaysian, the big Bhupinder Singh (who he became very fond off and started calling him “Bhup) and the group of 3 students from Zambia was regular targets! It was awesome! He even sneaked in a few swipes at Singapore which got the crowd going crazy!
No spoilers from me but the show was worth every single cent! I will definitely be buying the Official DVD from this tour which should be out later this year. If you are contemplating this show, don’t think twice!
Ticket sales for the second show which will be held on the Fri 11 May will be launched on Saturday 28 April 10am. Tickets will be sold online via TicketPro and Redtix ticketing outlets. Only a maximum of 8 tickets will be allowed per transaction this time around.
I suggest you get on your pc as early as 9am and you might get to buy it before the official time slot.
Ticket Information and Seating arrangement remain the same as the first show.
Russell Peters has confirmed that he will be in Malaysia on the 12th of May! He made the announcement via his twitter page. There has been so much speculation if there show will be on or not and i guess it finally got settled.
Hope that the organizers gets a big enough venue to hold the huge fan base he has here! 2 shows maybe?
No news of the show details yet but ill be sure to share it as soon as i know!

Immigrants , assuylum seekers. We come across them all the time. We often finding our selves giving them hard time with accusations that they are here to take our jobs and messing up opportunities for us. The reality or the predicament for them is beyond our imagination if you are from a comfortable economy and not experience hardship the way they have.
In Australia SBS created a show :
Six ordinary Australians agree to challenge their preconceived notions about refugees and asylum seekers by embarking on a confronting 25-day journey. Tracing in reverse the journeys that refugees have taken to reach Australia, they travel to some of the most dangerous and desperate corners of the world, with no idea what is in store for them along the way.
Deprived of their wallets, phones and passports, they board a leaky refugee boat, are rescued mid-ocean, experience immigration raids in Malaysia, live in a Kenyan refugee camp and visit slums in Jordan before ultimately making it to the Democratic Republic of Congo and Iraq, protected by UN Peacekeepers and the US military. For some of them it’s their first time abroad. For all of them, it’s an epic journey and the most challenging experience of their lives
Its a eye opener, i managed to watch 1 episode and i will be watching the rest very soon. Its education, you need to see what a assuylum seeker goes through. Just when you think you have the biggest problems mankind has ever had, this gives your prespective.
A Must Watch!
