Laughed the whole time Sep 17, 2006
By W. Gaultier
My colleagues and I went to see this show live. If you have seen the 45 mins video online that has been circulating for a while, you are going to love this one as well.
This is new material, and very funny. He talks about many ethnic groups, makes fun of them, and knows how to make fun of himself. His accents are impeccable and if you have been exposed to any Asian cultures - you are up for an awesome treat.
I have sent it to already 5 friends (oh yeah, buy the DVD..Support him)

Not as good as I expected Feb 03, 2007
By Newton Ooi
Like many other fans of Russell Peters, I got to know his comedy from his 40 minute video download of the Internet. Watching it over and over again, I was amazed by his accents, facial expressions, situational comedy and improvised skits. So I bought this DVD hoping for more. And more you get, as in more of the same. The DVD's main feature is an 1 hour 20 minute video of him onstage somewhere in San Francisco. He is performing to a multi-racial crowd, and as usual, his entire show is devoted to multi-racial comedy. Many of his jokes are of the same nature as his infamous download, and about 20 - 25 minutes of the show is actually him performing the same comedy as that found in his download. Another good 10 - 15 minutes of the show is comprised of him pausing and the audience laughing. So of the 1 hr and 20 minutes, only about half of it is original comedy. And none of it was as good as that found in his download. So for me, it was not that funny. For someone who has never seen his internet download however, this DVD is great. The innovativeness and wit of his comedy is as good as anyone else out there in the US now. And when it comes to racial jokes, his is the best out there.

Very funny for the most part - some material unsuitable for all audiences Nov 10, 2006
I saw the edited version of this show on Comedy Central and laughed my butt off! So I thought I would get the DVD for my parents. Not a good idea. Parts of it are really raunchy which is a shame because you have to be conscious of who is watching it. Definitely not suitable for someone under 18. When Russell Peters is not being raunchy, he is really really funny.

More than what Comedy Central showed Aug 30, 2006
By Raphael Salgado
After stumbling on various video clips of Russell Peters on YouTube and Google Video, I was hooked and waited for the Comedy Central television broadcast of his performance. The show was downright hilarious, as he explains all the "major minority" stereotypes and his experiences around the world. By being both insightful and hysterical, Russell Peters has found a great niche in standup comedy.
As TV would have it, the show was truncated down to about 45 minutes due to commercials and the like. However, after listening to a CD soundtrack of the Outsourced show, I noticed that it's clocking in at 63 minutes. So, it appears there's much more great material that was left out that you'll only get on CD or DVD.
Regardless, this live concert and its replay value is definitely worth its price.

get this now! Apr 20, 2007
Guys just like the rest of u i was first exposed to Russell (Indian tone!) over the internet. This guy will tear up the every type of racial slur, comment, notes, social observations...u name it! this guy is just purely nuts. If can so relate to this guys since my own little ethnic background has become a composite (Indian, PanArab, American, Egyptian!) It doesn't matter...i just laugh so hard the neighbor's knock! if i was anywhere else and had the talent to pick on these various cultural elements with a fine colm like RP, i would quit my day job and work as a Global comedian! Get this u will laugh it up! If u don't get this disc then "SOMEBODY GOING TO GET THE HURT REAL BAD!" GO RP!
