Comedian Gabriel Iglesias – known for his “I’m not fat, I’m fluffy!” routine – brings his “Stand Up Revolution Tour” to the MACC this Friday night at 7:30 p.m.

Iglesias’ act often references his weight. He has defined what he called the “Five Levels of Fatness”: Big, Healthy, Husky, Fluffy and DAMN. He eventually added a sixth, which he named “Oh, Hell no!”

When he first started his comedy career, Iglesias worked for a Los Angeles cell phone company. His family urged him to keep that job for its financial security, but he insisted on pursuing comedy as well. Ultimately, Iglesias decided to do so full time, against the advice of his mother.

This decision resulted in his being evicted from his home and losing his car, but it was a gamble that ultimately paid off. He has since gone on to win Comedy Central’s “Favorite Comic” and “Special of the Year” awards.

According to the MACC, “he’s making a name for himself on TV and in feature films; in fact, Comedy Central recently gave him an unprecedented two-hour special over two consecutive weekends! His ‘Aloha Fluffy’ DVD followed in the footsteps of his highly successful release ‘Hot & Fluffy’ and ‘I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy,’ which have sold over a million copies.”

The event is being held in the Castle Theater and tickets are $41.

    Same S#*T, Different Day! Why are people still giving this walking health hazard $$$ to listen to him talk about how fat he is and disparage himself?! Do yourself and your family a favor “Fluffy…” Go Eat A Salad and Start Walking Daily! Your shtick is as tired as you are after walking upstairs.

      Actually, he’s lost quite a bit of weight and talks about that in his act, eating healthier, etc. Saw him at the MACC last time he was here, and had a great time. He’s very funny and I’m glad he’s back. You might want to laugh more often, it’s healthy too!
