Born in Chula Vista, California, Gabriel Iglesias is the youngest of six children, raised by a single mother. Growing up, the family lived in Section 8 housing 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.
Iglesias is one of America’s most successful stand-up comedians, and performs to sold-out concerts around the world. He recently had the distinct honor of being one of the few comedians to headline and sellout Madison Square Garden in New York, The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and The Honda Center in Anaheim. Iglesias is currently on the road for his #FluffyBreaksEven concert tour!
Fluffy Breaks Even, a non-scripted comedic docu-follow series co-starring Gabriel's eccentric tour mates and fellow comedians Martin Moreno, Rick Gutierrez, G Reilly and Alfred Robles, has been picked up for a 2nd season and will premiere April 7th at 10/9 CT on FUSE TV. Audience members have an opportunity to see what it's like for Iglesias to eat on the road, add up the calories and then try to burn it off and "break even" with a different restaurant and workout in every episode.
