Russell Peters' Personal Life

Russell Peters, by his full name, Russell Dominic Peters, was born in Toronto, Ontario, on September 29, 1970 and was raised in Brampton by his parents, Eric and Maureen Peters.

Russell Peters' father was born in Bombay, India and was a federal meat inspector. Russell Peters' mother was also born in India, in Calcutta, where she gave birth to Russell's elder brother, Clayton.

Russell Peters went to Georges Vanier Catholic Elementary School until grade 8, Chinguacousy Secondary School for grade 9-10 and North Peel Secondary School in Brampton, for grades 11-12.

In 2010, Russell Peters decided to give a $ 20,000 scholarship asa a sign of contribution for North Peel Secondary, Brampton, Ontario, which he believes has much to do with his success.

The stand up comedian stated that when he was a teenager, North Peel was the best thing that ever happened to him, that he finally felt like he belonged.


Even though the comedian stated in many times that he is against the marriage, Russell Peters married Monica Diaz on August 20, 2010 in a small ceremony in Las Vegas.

This is Russell Peters' statement before he fell in love with Monica:

"I love being single.  I love women too much to be married to just one.  I really don't get being married and having kids and all that stuff.  A lot of my friends are married and have kids - I just don't get it. My lifestyle - being on the road, playing clubs when I'm in-town etc - it's not like working in an office or something, where you get up in the morning, go to work and then come home at the end of the day.  Most days, when I'm home in LA or Vegas, I usually only have breakfast at around 3 or 4 o'clock in the afternoon... That's not what most people think of when they think about being married..."
