Using the calling card of “I’m not fat, I’m fluffy,” Iglesias is one of America’s most successful stand-up comedians, who performs at sold-out concerts around the world. His stand-up comedy is a mixture of storytelling, parodies, characters, and voices that bring his personal experiences to life. His unique and animated comedy style has made him popular among fans of all ages.

Born in Chula Vista, California, Iglesias is the youngest of six children, raised by a single mother. Growing up, the family lived in Section 8 housing in Long Beach, California. It was during his childhood that he developed a strong sense of humor to deal with the obstacles he faced.

Iglesias’ 2016 tour, Fluffy Breaks Even, plays off his TV show of the same name. A non-scripted comedic docu-follow series, the show co-stars Iglesias’ eccentric tour mates and fellow comedians Martin Moreno, Rick Gutierrez, G Reilly and Alfred Robles. Fluffy Breaks Even wrapped its second season in May on FUSE TV.
