Famed comedian Gabriel Iglesias, also simply known as ‘Fluffy’, performed live at the Verizon Wireless Theater on Friday Feb. 18th, and Saturday Feb. 19th. A mini bonus show was also added later at the Improv Comedy Club at the Marquee Center alongside the Katy Freeway. Openings acts on Feb. 18th included comedians Martin Moreno, Shaun Latham, Rick Gutierrez, Noe Gonzalez, and Alfred Robles. The show was a full three hours of nonstop amusement.

“This place looks like a quinceñera hall with a budget,” Iglesias said about Verizon Wireless Theater. “Huge and flat!”

Due to a knee concern, Iglesias almost canceled the Houston portion of his tour, but decided to go through with it anyway not to disappoint his fans.

“I do apologize about the whole knee thing, but don’t worry about it. It doesn’t affect the mouth at all. I just won’t be running tonight, not like I’m ever running!” Iglesias said to the audience before starting his performance.

Gabriel Iglesias is currently in the process of putting together a new DVD special to accompany his previous first special ‘Hot and Fluffy Live from Bakersfield’ and his second special ‘I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy Live from El Paso.’  It was requested by comedian Martin Moreno that new material from the show should not leak out to the public to keep the material fresh for those who did not attend.  However, classic material was still performed such as the  Racist Gift Basket,  Volkswagen Beetle, and  Donuts and Cops.

Gabriel Iglesias is currently on tour throughout the United States. For complete tour dates, merchandise, and more information, please visit www.fluffyguy.com.
