It’s Vegas, a city of endless entertainment and a slew of comedian tours. Friday night, one comedian’s reputation packed the house for a sold out show at the Terry Fator Theatre inside the Mirage.
With a four-comedian warm up, audience members had an hour of prep time to get into the comedic swing of things. The start of the Fluffy Shop tour featured hilarious routines and stories from comedians: Shaun Latham, Alfred Robles, Rick Gutierrez and Noe Gonzalez.
The crowd was filled with over-the-top excitement for their headlining comedian, and once Gabriel Iglecias took the stage, he received a standing ovation right off the bat.
Iglecias, known as the “fluffy” comic in a Hawaiian shirt, gained his popularity through frequent appearances on Comedy Central as well as his popular one-hour televised specials, “I’m Not Fat… I’m Fluffy” and “Hot & Fluffy” and various TV appearances.
For the next hour of scheduled show time and around 30 minutes past that time slot, Iglecias performed a mixture of storytelling, parodies, sound effects and routines to the audience, who was cracking up in hysterics.
Iglecias’ routines included many new routines about life, friends, family and even his recent tour experience through Arizona.
If it weren’t for the close quarters and heavy armrests confining audience members to their seats, the comedy enthusiasts would have been rolling in the isles from laughter.
At 19 minutes over the allotted time period, fans were still demanding more, and shouting over each other with joke requests.
“You guys are shouting joke requests at me like I’m a Mexican mariachi,” said Iglecias at one point of deciding which routines to tell.
As he performed routines from his previous stage and TV appearances, the audience was shouting out punch lines from memory right along with Iglecias.
“This is awesome you guys no the punch lines already but you still want to hear more!” said Iglecias who was also laughing at the audience response.
Needless to say, with his fluffy routines, this comic was the weekend’s comedic highlight on the Strip.
