Anderson is to perform in a sketch comedy scene with Canadian funnyman Russell Peters, who is hosting the one-hour special.
Toronto-raised Peters currently stars in Breakaway, an Indo-Canadian theatrical comedy, while Anderson last year starred in Bigg Boss, India’s version of Big Brother.
A Russell Peters Christmas Special will also star Ted Lange (The Love Boat), Saturday Night Live alumnus Jon Lovitz and Scott Thompson (The Kids in the Hall).
The Canadian show will feature a mix of stand-up and sketch comedy, stop-motion animation and musical performances.
A Russell Peters Christmas Special is produced by Round 2 It Entertainment, Peters’ production shingle, and CPI Pictures.
Peters will share executive producer credits with Clayton Peters, and Insight Productions’ John Brunton and Barbara Bowlby.
