In the mood to fall on the floor laughing this weekend? Head to the Murat Theatre Centre in Indianapolis downtown near Mass Ave for Gabriel Iglesias’ stand up show. This popular comedian brings his larger than life comedy to the Circle City for one night only this Saturday, March 20 at 7:00 pm. Don’t miss this hilarious Indianapolis event.
Born in San Diego, Gabriel Iglesias spent the majority of his life living in various places in California. His career got his start on the kids station Nickelodeon, with their version of Saturday Night Live called All That. It wasn’t until later in life that he made an adult debut on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, where he captured the hearts of people across the United States. Known for his loud Hawaiian shirts, animated storytelling and spot on impressions, Iglesias has become a household name virtually over night.
He has been described as, “unbelievably funny, electrifying, and a gifted performer who has the ability to consistently deliver a quality comedy experience” in whatever venue he performs. His stand up is a capricious combination of parodies, caricatures, sound effects and storytelling. With a clean and animated style, he never offends, a trait that has earned him national crossover appeal.
His nickname, Fluffy, is a constant joke about Iglesias’ stature, which provides him with endless material to riff on. Whether he is explaining how he dances sweatily in nightclubs or shares an intimate moment with his girlfriend over the idea of chocolate cake, Iglesias uses everything in his hand to make people laugh.
