Read Keith Dudhnath's film review of Russell Peters: Red, White And Brown

The picture quality suffers slightly from a combing effect, from what I believe are called interlacing artifacts. It's a bit annoying at first, but once the comedy gets into its stride, you soon forget all about it. It's a shame, but it's not a deal breaker.

There are no such problems with the sound. Subtitling is all present and correct.

The deleted scenes are more of the same from the main feature; they're all very funny, particularly the section with audience interaction. The White Jacket Bootleg are scenes from another date on his tour, and are also well worth watching. Support The Troops is even more stand-up comedy from Russell Peters, but this time it's as part of a USO tour for American troops. Again, it's very funny and a great addition to the disc.

As well as the main feature, all the extras have commentary, which is a nice touch. These basically involve Peters, his brother, and director Jigal Talati chatting about Peters' work and his life. There's nothing particularly insightful, and it's by no means a must-listen, but it's better included than not.

You'll buy it for the main feature, but you will enjoy the extras.
