Russell Peters

Russell Peters, With stand-up routines that usually centre on cultural stereotypes and the odd Amsterdam sex shop, Canadian comedian Russel Peters wouldn’t normally register on our radar. Today, though, a somewhat inthemix-worthy (eh, it’s Friday) segment from his arena-filling Notorious tour has started doing the rounds. The target? DJing.

“I know a lot of you spend money to go see these so-called DJs who stand there in big arenas like this and their arms are in the air. They better be DJing with their dick right now, because if your arms are in the air who the hell is playing the music?” the bit begins. “That’s like you spending money to come see me and I put a DVD on and stand there making hand hearts.” It’s probably only a 3/10 on the funny scale, but you can watch it below.

Incensed? As it turns out, before he was an international comedy sensation Peters toiled away in Toronto as a DJ. As DJ Mag tell it, he’s still known to occasionally get behind the decks. Which, we suppose, makes the piss-take okay.
