Gabriel Iglesias has been arguably the hottest Latino stand-up comic for some time now. “Fluffy,” as he is affectionately known by his fans, is renowned for always giving fans what they want in his unique stand-up set and hilarious voices and impressions.
Things were no different Saturday, May 4 and Sunday, May 5, as Iglesias played two amazing sold-out shows at The Show at Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa in Rancho Mirage, Calif. The shows were part of his “Beyond the Fluffy Tour”, which is turning out to be another hit tour for one of the most beloved stand-up comics in the industry.
Fittingly enough for a comedian of Mexican descent performing on Cinco de Mayo weekend, Iglesias, a San Diego native, had a wonderful Mexican fiesta theme as part of his elaborate set design. The design included colorful balloons that resembled traditional “papel picado” flags. He also had cacti made of balloons (kind of funny when you think about it) and a Dia de Los Muertos theme, as well as Mariachi Los Palmeros as one of his opening acts and other guest musicians. It felt like a real-life set of the movie Coco. It was the type of environment that made fans want to continue the party after the show (and many did!).
