15. A Russell Peters Christmas
Release Year: 2011
Written by Luciano Casimiri
Directed by Henry Sarwer-Foner
Starring Russell Peters, Marty Adams, Pamela Anderson, Michael Buble, Ted Lange, Jon Lovitz, Scott Thompson
A Russell Peters Christmas is a nod to all the Christmas sketch and variety shows of old! The special is hosted by comedian Russell Peters and features comedy sketches, stand-up comedy, musical performances, and more from Pamela Anderson, Michael Buble, Jon Lovitz, Ted Lange, and more.
Overall, the Christmas special is raunchy, crude, and definitely on the offensive side. If you’re familiar with Russell Peters’ style and sense of humor, though, it makes sense and fits right in with that tone.
I’m not a huge fan of Christmas specials and variety shows, in general, but A Russell Peters Christmas is definitely funny and entertaining if you’re in the right mood. I mean, I’m not going to watch it on Christmas with my whole family… Maybe, I’d watch it in a couple of days leading up to Christmas for a laugh, that sounds about right.
