Gabriel Iglesias’s animated storytelling and parodies have made him a favorite on Comedy Central shows including his hit series Stand Up Revolution. The cable network’s premier of his two‐night comedy special Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy reached 15 million viewers.
The comedian nicknamed “Fluffy” is a frequent guest on late night talk shows. His comedic bits have over 300‐million views on YouTube and his sixth one‐hour comedy special, I’m Sorry For What I Said When I Was Hungry, has been streaming on Netflix since late 2016.
Iglesias is the youngest of six children born and raised in California by a single mother. Transferring the humor he used to deal with obstacles he faced as a child into a 20‐year‐career on stage, he honed his comedic skills in biker bars and small clubs and then rose to sold‐out arenas.
Last summer he filled the venues of a string of fairs he played, including the Ohio State Fair. He has the honor of being one of the few comedians ever to sell out Madison Square Garden. Branching out from stand‐up, Iglesias stars in Fluffy Food Adventures, a non‐scripted “docu‐follow” series on FUSE TV that takes him and four fellow comedians on a coast‐to‐coast culinary trip in search of mouthwatering dishes and local gems and often meeting up with celebrities along the way. ‐more‐ 2 Add 1 He has lent his vocal talents to animated films Smurfs: The Lost Village, Ferdinand, Norm of the North, The Book of Life, Planes, The Nut Job and The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature. Iglesias played the character Tobias in feature films Magic Mike (2012) and Magic Mike XXL in (2015) and had a recurring role as Alberto in the 2014‐15 ABC sitcom Cristela.
The Fair Box Office located next to the Fairgrounds Farmers Market will hold special holiday hours from 10 a.m.‐2 p.m. on Thursdays December 7, 14 and 21, Friday, December 22 and Saturday, December 23.
