Performer Info

Gabriel Iglesias: Known as the "fluffy" comic in the Hawaiian shirt, comedian Gabriel Iglesias says he gets his material from things that happen every day. His comedy style - telling stories with characters and sound effects that bring all of his personal issues to life - has entertained audiences on numerous televisions shows and in comedy clubs all over the country. Gabriel recently made it to the finals on NBC's current season of "Last Comic Standing," winning the Capitol One award for audience favorite. Born in San Diego and raised primarily in Long Beach, CA, Iglesias got his big break on the Galavision television show "Que Locos!," which led to a comedy tour of sold-out performances all over the country. Television roles soon followed, with Iglesias guest-starring on "My Wife & Kids" and "Resurrection Boulevard," and performing stand-up in his own comedy special "Comedy Central Presents: Gabriel Iglesias," as well as on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Good Morning America," "Showtime at the Apollo" and "ComicView." Additional television credits include "Premium Blend," "Comic Remix," "Make Me Laugh" and the "Latino Laugh Festival." He won a Kid's Choice Award as a regular performer in the Nickelodeon show "All That," and won the Comedy Central & Comcast Cable's Comedy Special of the year in 2003. In 2004, 2005 and 2006, he was voted into the Top 25 of Comedy Central's "Standup Showdown." On the big screen, Iglesias has appeared in the films "El Matador" and "The Surfer King," and he also has a CD entitled "Picachu…I See You." Gabriel can be seen headlining nationally across the country, and when in Los Angeles, can be seen at the Improv, the Ice House, the Comedy and Magic Club, and many others.
