Gabriel Iglesias Show
Gabriel Iglesias has been described as unbelievably funny, electrifying, and a gifted performer who has the ability to consistently deliver a uniquely hilarious comedy experience – from start to finish – in every venue he performs in. His high-octane show is a sure-fire hit mixture of storytelling, parodies, characters and sound effects that bring all his personal issues to life. Gabriel’s clean, animated comedy style has earned national crossover appeal, making him popular among fans of all ages. Ask anyone who has seen him in concert and you will probably hear the same thing, “He was SO funny!” Now, more will be able to catch Gabriel live as he embarks on his national standup comedy tour, “The Fluffy Shop Tour” presented by Comedy Central. In 2011, Gabriel will headline across the US, and will even hit the shores of Australia, with his electrifying standup show.
Known as the “fluffy” comic in a Hawaiian shirt, the 32-year old funny man often riffs about his girthy middle – whether it’s talking about how little dancing it takes for him to work up a sweat at the nightclub, or how hearing his girlfriend coo the words “chocolate cake” over the telephone works for him like phone sex, he evokes belly-aching laughter. His vast imitative skills re-create numerous sound effects from speeding cars to microwave ovens to a plethora of dead-on voices.
Gabriel’s mass appeal opened the door to a rare opportunity for a comedian – to film a second one hour special and DVD. The new special entitled “I’m Not… Fat I’m Fluffy” features the comedian’s perfect blend of spot-on voice skills and an uncanny knack for hilarious storytelling. The special, shot live in front of a packed house in El Paso, TX is currently playing in rotation on Comedy Central and is now available on DVD. The new special is destined to top his previous hugely successful special/DVD, “Hot & Fluffy. ”
Gabriel’s television credits include; “Last Comic Standing”,”Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Conan”, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Good Morning America,” “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” FOX TV’s “The Family Guy,” “Showtime at the Apollo” and BET’s “Comic View.” He has headlined the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, and in 2009, had the unique opportunity to be the special headlining opener at the Amman Jordan Comedy Festival, the first of its kind in the Arab world.
Gabriel is currently working on his own tv project for Comedy Central.
