Comedian Gabriel Iglesias Will Entertain at Palace

Comedy Central’s Gabriel Iglesias will teach audiences the difference between “fat” and “fluffy” when Bill Blumenreich presents the “Fluffy Shop Tour” at the Palace Theater in Waterbury on Saturday, Aug. 14, at 8 pm.

Gabriel “Picachu” Iglesias’ high-octane show is a hilarious mixture of storytelling, parodies, characters and sound effects that bring all his personal issues to life with a clean animated comedy style that has earned national cross-over appeal. Known as the "fluffy" comic in a Hawaiian shirt, the 33-year-old funny man often riffs about his girthy middle. Whether it's talking about how little dancing it takes for him to work up a sweat at the night club, or how hearing his girlfriend coo the words "chocolate cake" over the telephone works for him like phone sex, he evokes laughter.

In 2000, he won a Kid's Choice Award for the Nickelodean TV show "All That" and, in 2003, won the Comedy Central & Comcast Cable's “Comedy Special of the Year.” Iglesias has been one of top 25 most requested comics in Comedy Central's Standup Showdown, and in 2007, he released his first one-hour triple platinum special, "Hot & Fluffy."

Tickets for Iglesias are $39.75 and $35.75 and can be purchased by phone at 203-346-2000, online at http://www.palacetheaterct.org/, or in person at the Palace Theater Box Office, 100 East Main St. in Waterbury. Groups of 20 or more qualify for discounted rates and should call the Group Sales hotline at 203-346-2002.
