Canadian comedian Russell Peters, who is known for the risqué racial jokes, will celebrate his 45th birthday on Tuesday, 29 September. Peters' best routines are observational in nature, and he uses his humour to highlight stereotypes, be it racial, ethnic, class or cultural.

In celebration of his birthday, we have compiled a list of some of his funniest and most popular quotes and one-liners:

  • As a guy who grew up with Black people, I know the N-word is not specific to people. It's a f**g noun. It is used for everything else but people. It's not specific to black people. I see my friends. They'll be like, "Yo Russell, I seen you with some Chinese ni***rs last night."... My homeboy called me, was like, "Yo, you gotta put on Discovery Channel, son They got this shit on killer whales. Yo, those ni***rs are crazy!" 
  • Just for the record my Arab friends, I don't do any Arab jokes in my act. Its not that i don't think you are funny. It's just .. I don't know, I don't wanna..... die? 
  • My guiltiest pleasure in life is 'America's Funniest Home Videos.' I watch them all - old, new - I don't care. Despite how bad the writing is on the show. The people getting hit and hurt, that's hilarious. 
  • I hate Bollywood. The movies are all garbage, just terrible. It's my opinion; obviously, there are billions who like and love them. I don't like all the singing, dancing and all the dramatic crying. I have never seen a Bollywood film in my life. 
  • On my best day, I cannot do Scottish people. I don't even believe that's a real accent, to be honest with you. I think they probably sound like us when they're in the house. It's how they keep people away from them. 
  • Do you know what the Dance Dance Revolution is? It's not an actual revolution, so you don't have to worry about that. It's not like a bunch of Asians are going to knock on your door 'Hey! Start dancing!'" 
  • Indians are the second largest population in the world, but we're invisible on TV - everything is either black or white. 
  • I have a theory. I believe that the size of your penis is in indirect correlation with how much sex you will have in your life. The smaller your d**k, the more you will f**k. You don't believe me, look at the two largest populations in the world.
