Book ~ "Call Me Russell" (2010) Russell Peters

From Goodreads ~ Up-close, personal, and yes, funny - this is the must-have celebrity memoir of the year. 

This candid, first-person memoir chronicles Russell's life from his humble beginnings in suburbia as a scrawny, brown, bullied kid with ADD all the way to his remarkable rise as one of the world's top-earning comics. This is a shockingly honest book filled with poignant memories of his family, his life and his career. 

"Call Me Russell" is a deeply inspirational story for aspiring artists of any culture about having hope, working hard and dreaming big.

Russell Peters is an Anglo Indian comedian from Brampton (about a half hour from Toronto).

Gord and I think he's hilarious and saw him in June 2007 when he sold out a couple nights at the Air Canada Centre.

So that's why I wanted to read his autobiography. It was very honest about how close he was to his dad (who died in 2004), the women in his life (he got married in July 2010) and how he's made it to where he is today.

It's a good read if you are a fan!

He is awesome... Hubby actually knows him via a mutual friend they have in common... and he is appearantly quite humble and nice in person (off stage). His comedy is hilarious... have a great day .. stay warm... hope the expected storm bypasses us once again.. HHL
