Famous Brampton-raised comedian Russell Peters is officially married, with a star-studded wedding that had multiple big names on the guest list.

Peters married his now wife, Ali Peters, last Sunday (Feb. 20) at the Ritz Carlton in Dana Point, California.

A comedic yet emotional video posted to his Instagram today shows the two of them making their vows and Russell Peters shedding a tear.

“Last Sunday I had the privilege of marrying the most wonderful, beautiful, courageous, independent, smart, funny, caring… (the list goes on) woman I’ve ever met,” the comedian wrote on Instagram.

“This is a place I never ever believed I deserved nor thought would ever happen but as the universe would have it… I’ve been fortunate enough to find my person!”

As expected for a comedian of his status, a number of well-known celebrities were in attendance.

Peters thanked famous actor Cedric The Entertainer for getting licensed online to legally marry him with his wife, and also gave a shoutout to Canadian singer Deborah Cox, guitarist Nile Rodgers, and DJ Scotty Fox for their musical performances during the wedding.

Peters, now 51 years old, was born in Toronto to parents who had immigrated from India. His family moved to Brampton when he was four, where he later attended high school at Chinguacousy Secondary School and North Peel Secondary School (now Judith Nyman).

He started performing stand up comedy in 1989 and found huge success, eventually going on to perform internationally. His most popular comedy routines often played on cultural stereotypes and his own experiences as an Indian man.

Peters has also had roles as an actor and producer, and currently has two children from past relationships.
