    Rolling Stone recently designated Peters as one of the “50 Best Comics of All Time” – a list that also included the likes of Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Eddie Murphy. After 15 years of honing his craft on the stand-up circuit, Peters first gained worldwide recognition in 2004 when his CTV Comedy Now! special became a YouTube sensation. Since then, he’s packed arenas across the U.S. and around the globe, including sold-out engagements at Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall. Each of Peters’ tours – including Outsourced (2006), Red, White & Brown (2008), and The Green Card Tour (2010) – was turned into a successful special aired on Showtime and Comedy Central. In 2013, Peters became the first stand-up to create a Netflix Original comedy special, the acclaimed, one-man Notorious. His most recent world tour, Almost Famous , was also recorded for Netflix, where it premiered in 2016. Peters received both Peabody and Emmy awards for his work as executive producer of the acclaimed 2017 Netflix documentary, Hip-Hop Evolution . His other recent credits include The Indian Detective and A Little Help with Carol Burnett (both on Netflix); a recurring role on the CBS hit, Life in Pieces ; a seat on the judges’ panel for NBC’s reboot of Last Comic Standing ; and big-screen roles in features like The Clappers, Source Code , and Chef . He also makes regular appearances on late-night favorites like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon , Jimmy Kimmel Live , and more.
