Gabriel Iglesias is one of America’s most successful stand-up comedians performing to sold-out concerts around the world. He is also one of the most watched comedians on YouTube with over 300,000,000 views. The comedian has also had the distinct honor of being one of the few to headline and sell-out Madison Square Garden and The Microsoft Theater. Gabriel Iglesias will perform at DPAC on Saturday, March 24, 2018.
Born in Chula Vista, California, 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.
Recently, Fluffy’s Food Adventures, 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 launched its 3rd season (formally Fluffy Breaks Even) on FUSE TV this past July. The show follows Gabriel and his crew on a coast-to-coast culinary trip in search of the country’s most mouthwatering dishes as they discover local gems, unique activities and a few celebrities along the way.
Iglesias can be heard reprising his role of “Jimmy” in the animated film The Nut Job 2 along with Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph and Katherine Heigl. Later this year, he will also be in the animated film Ferdinand (20th Century Fox) voicing the character “Cuatro” in theaters December 15th.
At the end of 2016, Iglesias released his 6th one-hour comedy special, I’m Sorry For What I Said When I Was Hungry on Netflix worldwide. He filmed the special at the Allstate Arena in Chicago to 2 sold-out shows with a total of 20,000 fans in attendance.
In 2015, he co-starred with Channing Tatum in Warner Bros’ Magic Mike XXL, reprising his role as Tobias. Gabriel also lit up the small screen on the ABC sitcom Cristela.
Other feature film credits include co-starring roles in A Haunted House 2, and his voice can be heard in numerous animated films Smurfs: The Lost Village, Norm of the North, The Book of Life, The Nut Job and Disney’s Planes. Gabriel also starred in the theatrical stand-up concert comedy film, The Fluffy Movie. For the past three years Comedy Central has aired Iglesias’ hit series Stand-Up Revolution. The cable network also premiered Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy in an unprecedented two-night comedy special to over 15 million viewers. The special was a follow-up to his previous DVD specials, Hot & Fluffy and I’m Not Fat...I’m Fluffy, which have sold a combined total of over 2 million copies.

For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.
All performances scheduled at DPAC normally take place as planned. For more information on our inclement weather policy, please visit INCLEMENT WEATHER FAQ.
