The Toronto International Film Festival takes over the city starting today, and one of the hottest screenings is the premiere of Notorious, the new stand-up comedy special from Russell Peters. Following the movie, which takes place at 7 p.m. on September 9 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, George will host a Q&A with Peters, who grew up just outside Toronto in Brampton, Ontario. (George is also moderating two other Q&As this year. Check them out here.)

The special hits Netflix on October 14, but we've got two pairs of tickets to give away for next week's TIFF screening and Q&A. Want one? Just tell us your favourite Russell Peters joke in the comments below before noon on Friday, September 6. We'll randomly choose two winners and get in touch. THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.
