“Cultural Names” | Russell Peters – Outsourced

>>Russell Peters: I like cultural names. Cultural names are really cool, you know? I don’t have a cultural name– and Indian people, for some reason, have real tough time with this, but my real name is Russell Peters. [Some audience members boo] Both of my parents are from India, and that’s the name they gave me. Russell Dominic– [Audience members still booing] Look at you dumb motherfuckers right there! [Laughter] Do you know Indian history at all? At all?! None, you don’t. You know why? I can tell he doesn’t know Indian history. The British were there, for 400 years. You don’t think they fucked one or two of us? [Laughter and Applause] If they could steal all our jewelry, they could bang one or two us! [Laughter] That’s my real name. Both of my parents are from India, and they named me, “Russell Dominic Peters.” “Dominic-” I’ve got an Italian middle name– [Laughter] ‘Cause my parents are from that Italian part of India– [Laughter] “Calcutta.” You know, that part there. [Laughter] That’s it. You have a problem with my name? Talk to my parents, Eric and Maureen. [Laughter] And my brother, Julio. [Laughter] If I had an Indian name, I’d wear it proudly, you know what I mean? I don’t have one! If I had it, I would rock it, very proudly. [To audience member] What’s your name, mister India, over there? [Laughter]>>Man off screen: “Anit”>>Russell: Sorry?>>Man off screen: “Anit”>>Russell: Anit? See, that’s “a neat” name! [Laughter and Clapping] [Indian accent] “Anit!” “Anit!”>>Anit: “Patel!”>>Russell: Patel! Nice. [Laughter and Clapping] Jose, that’s the equivalent, right there, that’s uhm– [Laughter] [Indian accent] “Anit Patel–” “that’s my brother, A Messy Patel,” [Laughter] “That’s my big brother, A Slob.” [Laughter and Clapping] [Laughter continues] [To Anit] Do you know what your name means?>>Anit: Nope.>>Russell: Nope. So sure that this wasn’t my name, but has no clue what your name means. I don’t know what your name means, either. I know what my name means. “Russell” It sucks, you know what it means? “To make a noise.” [Laughter] It’s uhm– It’s a shit name, it’s a shit joke. What do you want? [Laughter] I like the Indian names. I think– I think the Indian name’s are very cool, they have deep meanings to them, they have long history behind them– [To audience member] What’s your name, my little Sikh brother right there? What’s your name?>>Man: “Prabhjot”>>Russell: Sorry?>>Man: “Prabhjot”>>Russell: “Prab–” “jote” Not “Prabh-chode,” right? ‘Cause that– that would just be rude, I guess, at that point, wouldn’t it? [Laughter] That would make his name “Prabh-fuck,” that’s what his name would’ve been. [Laughter] “Prabhjot!” [Angry Indian accent] “Prabhjot! What are you doing?” That’s a good, solid Indian name, you know? I like the Indian names! [To Prabhjot] You know what your name means?>>Prabhjot, off screen: Yeah. [To Anit] See, he knows what his name means! [Laughter] Okay, “Anit!” [Laughter and Clapping] [To Prabhjot] What does it mean, Prab?>>Prabhjot: It means, “God’s essence.” [Russell chuckling] “God’s essence.” [Laughter] Goddamn! [Laughter and Clapping] What’s your sister’s name? “Herbal Essence?” [Laughter and Applause] “Your sister smells great!” [Laughter] [Indian accent] “That’s just Herbal–” [Laughter] “Herbal-Jot” [Laughter and Clapping] [Laughter continues] God’s essence – That’s dope man! I like the Indian names– I think a lot of Indian names are really cool, but– I think a lot of cultural names are cool, but if you’re gonna be– If you’re gonna have a cultural name, and you’re gonna move from another country, to America, think about what that name means, in English, before you move here, you know what I mean? Think about how it’s gonna affect your life. ‘Cause some Indian names are really good, some Indian names are really cool, and they mean a lot, but they’re really good, in India. When they come here with those names, it just doesn’t cross over, very well. I met an Indian dude, and you know this is a real name, ’cause he was one of your people. Uhm– I met an Indian guy, I swear to God, his real name was, “Sukhdeep.” [Laughter continues] Suck deep! [Laughter continues] Could you imagine living your life, with a name like, “Suck deep?!” [Laughter] Somebody’s looking for you one day, [Thug voice] “Ay yo, man,” “you suck deep?” [Laughter and Clapping] [Indian accent] “Well, sometimes, if I have to. I– [Laughter] don’t really like it, though.” [Laughter continues] And obviously, it’s not pronounced, “suck deep,” in my culture, you what I mean, but if you were to read it, that’s how you’d read it. It’s spelled “S U K H D E E P” The “H” doesn’t help [Laughter] ‘Cause now it sounds even worse, “suck HUH deep.” [Laughter] “Come here, suck HUH deep!” [Laughter] And I used to think Sukhdeep was like, the funniest Indian name I’d ever heard, and then a few months ago, I was in DC, and I met this Indian dude, and I shit you not, the guy’s real name was, “Hardik.” [Laughter] “H A R D I K” Hard dick! [Laughter] Who the hell names their kid. “Hard Dick?!” [Laughter] [Indian accent] “Hey come on, Hard Dick, pull up your pants, stop that! It’s not nice. [Laughter and Clapping] ♪♪

There is an Indian actress called Madhuri Dixit but some people pronounce it dickshit which I refuse to do.

I know alot of women thT prefer punjabi men for there performance and size in the intimacy dept.and its not suck deep it pronounced Sukhdeep which means peace light or light of peace.hope ur content sticks to its sucesss not junk

  15. If you see Sukhdeep and Hardik in this comment section.

  18. Pay attention to the audiences, between 1:39 – 1:43 one of the guys shouts out his name " Sukh Deep" sounds like Suck Deep ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Not sure if I spelled that name correctly tho.

  19. 5.4 million views and most people didn't care to subscribe?? What's wrong with people these days? Or you just can't stand an Indian being funny.

  20. The word " Mana " in my Eritrean language means " Gift from God " but here in Uganda, where I am currently liviling, means " Vagina " ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Russell is so right on that point lol

  21. Yes itโ€™s true British men raped India women who had children. Abused was widespread- they created famine then forced to convert to their religion to โ€˜saveโ€™ them. How very noble of them.
