More about Gabriel Iglesias:
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, low-income housing in the city of Long Beach. 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 started performing stand-up anywhere he could find an audience including biker bars and “hole in the wall” joints. In 2011, after more than 35 years, Gabriel was reunited with his father. As a young boy, he never could have foreseen the incredible success he has experienced.
Today, Iglesias is one of America’s most successful stand-up comedians and he performs year-round in sold-out concerts across the United States and abroad. His stand-up comedy is a mixture of storytelling, parodies, characters and sound effects that bring all his personal experiences to life. His unique and animated comedy style has made him popular among fans of all ages. This past April Comedy Central premiered “Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy” in an unprecedented two-night comedy special. It follows in the footsteps of his highly successful first two DVD specials, “Hot & Fluffy” and “I’m Not Fat...I’m Fluffy” which have sold well over 1 million copies.
In addition to performing as a stand-up comedian, Iglesias is making a name for himself in both the feature film and television arenas. His voice was featured in the recent box-office record-breaking hit animated family film The Nut Job – which was released by Open Road Films – and also starred Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl and Liam Neeson. Iglesias appeared in the 2012 blockbuster film Magic Mike, co-starring alongside Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey. Tatum, a long-time fan of Iglesias’, personally sought him out for the role. In 2013 Iglesias voiced the characters of Ned and Zed in the Disney hit animated feature film Planes where he starred with Dane Cook, Val Kilmer, Brad Garrett and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. His voiceover talent will also be featured in the upcoming animated film El Americano. Iglesias is in A Haunted House 2 – from Open Road Films – starring alongside Marlon Wayans and Jaime Pressly, which will hit theaters April 18, 2014.
