(NEWARK, NJ) -- Comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias will be performing at Prudential Center in Newark on Sunday, October 2. This is part of his all new 2022 Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias Back On Tour. Iglesias is one of the world's most successful and popular stand-up comedians, performing sold-out concerts around the world. He is also one of the most watched comedians on YouTube with over one billion views.
Gabriel made history this year (May 2022), becoming the first comedian to perform at and sell out Dodger Stadium in front of 55,000 fans, joining the likes of Elvis, Madonna, The Beatles, and Elton John. That show will air as Netflix's biggest special later this year.
His previous specials have sold millions of DVD copies around the globe.
Iglesias was included in The Hollywood Reporter’s “Top 40 Comedy Players” issue alongside comedy giants Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, and Lorne Michaels. Iglesias also had the distinct honor of being one of the few to headline and sell-out Madison Square Garden in New York, Staples Center in Los Angeles, and Sydney Opera House in Australia. He embarked on a European arena comedy tour this past summer.
On TV, Gabriel is the star and executive producer of the original Netflix comedy series, Mr. Iglesias, which is currently streaming 3 seasons.
Feature film credits include co-starring roles in Magic Mike and Magic Mike XXL. His voice has been heard in the animated films Space Jam: A New Legacy as “Speedy Gonzales” and Pixar’s Academy Award nominated film Coco. Gabriel is one of a handful of comedians with a theatrically released stand-up concert comedy film, The Fluffy Movie.
Gabriel Iglesias is the youngest of six children, raised by a single mother in Long Beach, CA. It was during his childhood that he developed a strong sense of humor to deal with the obstacles he faced. In 1997, he set out to hone his comedic skills, and performed stand-up anywhere he could find an audience, including biker bars and hole-in-the-wall joints. Gabriel’s stand-up comedy is a mixture of storytelling, parodies, characters, and sound effects that bring his personal experiences to life. His unique and animated comedy style has made him popular among fans of all ages.
