Gabriel Iglesias: ‘Fluffy’ and funny at the Morris

Mac Hendrickson | Thursday, September 23, 2010

Grab your Hawaiian shirt and clear your schedule. Gabriel Iglesias, also known as,”Big Fluffy,” brings his hit comedy tour “The Fluffy Shop Tour” to South Bend Thursday at the Morris Performing Arts Center.

Gabriel Iglesias’ dynamite act is characterized by eccentric sound effects, spot-on impersonations and lively storytelling. Iglesias’ material is clean and tasteful and his lovable personality has won the hearts of audiences across America.

]Nicknamed “The Big Fluffy” by his mother, Iglesias got his start on the Galavision TV show “Que Locos!”

Since then, Iglesias has stuck mostly to stand-up, which has earned him fame and respect in the comedic community. A frequent Comedy Central performer, Iglesias has also been featured on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “Good Morning America.”

Iglesias was also in the final eight contestants on NBC’s last comic standing in 2006. His comedic bits range from stories about being pulled over after a box of Krispy Kreme donuts distracted him to showing off his “drive-through” voice he uses to mess with fast food attendants.
