Russell Peters on Being a Stand-Up Dad

Comedian Russell Peters finds the comedy in becoming a father, even under difficult circumstances.

In this clip, Russell talks about

How gangster his child is
"The baby came out, and she was only one pound ten ounces. But she's gangster, because she was breathing on her own."

Feeling like a little girl
"The first time [I held her] I started crying. I was like a little girl. First time I saw her on the screen when we did the ultrasound, I started crying."

The glorious laziness of his child
"She doesn't even cry. Even when she cries, she doesn't cry. It's almost like she's too lazy to cry, which I really dig! I'm like, 'I love this lazy child!'"
