Sorry, I just can't. I'm on-stage for at least one hour, with no notes and or script. Some nights I don't even know what material I'm going to do. It's almost impossible for me to do this or to remember to do this. However, sometimes my management will arrange for certain people to come backstage after the show to say hello.
Hmmm... This is definitely an FAQ. I try my best to talk about everyone who's in the audience, but the thing is, I'll only talk about people and cultures that I know about. I won't just say something for the sake of saying it. I'm always paying attention to the fans and learning new things about them and their communities. Give me time, I'll have something for you. By the way, sometimes I forget too! At my recent LA show, I completely forgot to talk about Latinos! I realized it as soon as I got off stage and it was too late.
No. I can't stand it. I grew up in North America and those corny movies don't mean anything to me. In fact they're awful. Same thing goes for the music.
I'm a hip hop junkie - I'm talking about real hip hop, not that crap that they play on the radio these days. My favourite artist of all time is Biggie.
Nope. I don't do private shows any more. I get these enquiries every day and we (my management and I) have decided that we turn all of them down - globally.I don't like doing them and they're never good shows. I'm also crazy busy. Between my live dates and tv and film projects, I just don't have time.
YES - yes, I am. There were too many people claiming to be me and trying to sell tickets and mislead my fans, so I decided that it was time to get on-board. http://www.facebook.com/RussellPeters
