Good news for those who missed out on tickets to hit comedian Russell Peters' Singapore gig on 5 May.

The Canadian funnyman has added a second night, the 6 May, to the Singapore leg of his "Notorious" World Tour to cater to the overwhelming demand.

Tickets for the second show at the Indoor Stadium are priced at $178, $148, $128 and $98 and will be on sale from 19 April onwards.

Russell Peters has spent the last three years setting attendance records around the globe. In 2008, he had the largest comedy show in UK history at London's O2 Arena with 16,000 fans. He repeated that same feat in 2010 at Sydney, Australia's Acer Arena, where he had the largest comedy show in Australian history with over 13,000 fans.

In March of this year, Peters became the fastest selling concert in Dubai history. His two shows in Dubai sold‐out in eight minutes ‐ faster than Madonna.

The 41-year-old shot to fame after his rip-roaring stand-up performances on Canadian TV comedy series Comedy Now! which were uploaded onto YouTube and quickly became viral.
