Yeah, it's true -- Russell Peters doesn't want you to buy this DVD, he doesn't get paid. So, while I understand his point of view, I had already bought this DVD before I knew that. And the fact of the matter is, this is one of the best Peters shows on the market.
You've probably seen bits of it before on the Comedy network. Peters pulls out all his best accents -- Indian, Mandarin, Cantonese, everything. I think this DVD distills the best of his work down into a couple of great specials. I saw the man live last year, and he is always funny. Therefore you can't go wrong. Especially if you can laugh at yourself, because nobody is spared.
I do have my reservations, but what the heck. 4 stars.
