Dear person who missed watching Russell live,
Russell Peters was in Mumbai in all his flamboyancy. He effortlessly made hundreds of people laugh like retards, while you sat at home wishing that you were there.
This letter is written with the intent to make sure that you don’t miss out on watching him live the next time you get a chance.
So, what exactly did you miss?
To begin with, you missed the opportunity to brag.
It’s not everyday that you get to brag about crazy shit. Bragging about watching Russell Peters live isn’t like bragging about your new car or your new phone. It takes bragging to a whole new level of cool, without making you sound gay.
Some other reasons:
Laugh like a maniac:
You would say, why would I pay someone thousands of rupees to make me laugh?
But hey, it isn’t everyday that you get the opportunity to break into a sort of a Mexican wave as the bodies of hundreds of people break into a fit of laughter.
Watch rich people get ripped apart:
If you have been watching Russell Peters for a while, you know that the people sitting in the first few rows (who pay the highest sum of money) get ripped apart. You missed having the sadistic pleasure of watching the affluent made fun of.
Two hours of unadulterated laughter:
Watching him on YouTube made you made you laugh till your jaws hurt. Imagine watching the same man live, double the power to him, and guess what, he totally lives up to all those YouTube videos that you’ve seen and much more.
A bunch of people who paid to laugh:
You would spend two hours of your life with a bunch of people who really would pay to laugh. There are plenty of people who go for music concerts, plays, movies etc. But the people who go for stand-up acts are of a different league altogether. They’re the kinds who would not miss an opportunity to laugh at something, anything… at any point in their life. Imagine the level of coolness in these people. So yeah, you missed the opportunity to be amongst these people as well.
Lastly, you should’ve been there because everybody deserves a good laugh and two hours of mad comedy is nothing short of therapy.
The ones who attended are surely going to be happy at least for the next couple of days.
And in the words of Russell, "Our cheapness changed the world…(An Indian) came along and drew a circle. "What’s that?" "Nothing" "What’s inside of it?" "Nothing" "What’s its value?" "Nothing… *Sniff* It’s beautiful (shedding a tear). We shall call it (jeero) zero. Take it and go."
So, loosen up and spare a penny from your wallet, the next time Mr. Peters comes to town.
