Russell & Clayton Peters Presents, in Association With the Climate Project-Canada

Comedians for Climate Project-Canada, a Gala Evening of Comedy Hosted by Russell Peters With Guest of Honour, Al Gore

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 10, 2008) - The worldwide comedy phenomenon, Russell Peters, returns to Montreal to host a special evening of comedy to raise funds and awareness for Al Gore's not-for-profit The Climate Project-Canada (CP-C) initiative on Saturday, April 5th, 2008 at 7:30 p.m. Place des Arts - Salle Wilfred Pelletier.

Although Peters is hosting the Juno Awards the following day in Calgary, Peters feels that The CP-C is an important cause that he would like to help. "I'll admit that I'm no where near where I should be in terms of being environmentally aware, but I know I'm not alone," Peters admits. "We need organizations like Climate Project-Canada to help educate the public and raise awareness of where the planet is heading."

The CP-C is an independent, not-for-profit, registered Canadian charitable organization, whose mission is to educate and challenge both citizens and governments into action against the growing climate change crisis. The CP-C is the independent Canadian arm of the The Climate Project, founded by former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, powered by GreenNexxus.

Also performing on the show are internationally renowned Canadian comics including, Montreal-born Angelo Tsarouchas and Derek Seguin, Toronto's Jean Paul, 'This Hour Has 22 Minutes' Mark Critch, from 'The George Lopez Show,' Frazer Smith and 'That Canadian Guy', Glen Foster. George Stroumboulopoulos, current affairs commentator from CBC's The Hour will also be a part of the evening.

The evening features a variety of comedy performances and concludes three days of activities for the official launch of The Climate Project-Canada. All funds raised go directly to The Climate Project-Canada. Al Gore will be in attendance at the event as the Guest of Honour.
