Peters, 42, who began performing in 1989, has since gained notoriety for descriptions of his Anglo-Indian family. Many of his bits touch on ethnic, racial, class and cultural stereotypes.

Peters says that the Netflix series is a step in the right direction for his ambitions. "I've always prided myself on being outside the box and slightly ahead of the curve, which is why Netflix is the perfect fit for me," says the stand-up.
