Peters, who Forbes named the third highest grossing stand-up comedian of 2013, has a huge following around the world, with much of his comedy coming from jokes about his Indian heritage (Peters was born in Canada to Anglo-Indian parents). In addition to "Notorious," Netflix will also release a four-part documentary series about Peters' life.
Netflix has bought a few other stand-up specials that were released exclusively through the streaming service, such as comedy specials from Todd Glass and Moshe Kasher, but Peters' special kicks off a new commitment to producing specials for the service. Aziz Ansari's "Buried Alive" will be the second special Netflix releases, on November 4.
Check out the trailer for Peters' "Notorious," and check out the artwork below.
