Comedian Gabriel Iglesias will perform at Tennessee Performing Arts Center’s Jackson Hall on March 8, 2019, as part of his new 2019 Beyond The Fluffy World Tour.
Tickets go on sale on Thursday, Nov. 1, at TPAC.org, by phone at 615-782-4040, and the TPAC Box Office, 505 Deaderick St., in downtown Nashville.
Iglesias is one of a handful of comedians to headline and sell out the Staples Center, Madison Square Garden, and the Sydney Opera House. In addition to being one of America’s most successful stand-up comedians, Iglesias also is one of the most watched comedians on YouTube with more than 380 million views and more than 14 million fans across social media.
“There is still no greater thrill for me than to perform stand-up live, I’m so excited to launch this new tour and reconnect with all my fans. It’s going to be Fluffy-licious,” Iglesias says about the tour.
Iglesias, recently featured in The Hollywood Reporter’s Top 40 Comedy Players of 2018 alongside comedy giants Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Lorne Michaels, is currently in production as star and executive producer of the upcoming multi-cam Netflix series, “Mr. Iglesias.”
Playing a good-natured public high-school teacher at his alma mater, Iglesias takes on teaching gifted, but misfit kids to save them from being “counseled out” by a bully bureaucrat assistant principal and to help them unlock their full potential. The series of 10 half-hour episodes premieres in 2019.
In addition to the Netflix series, Iglesias will star in two stand-up comedy specials for the network. The first, “One Show Fits All,” was filmed recently in front of a sold-out audience at the Toyota Center in Houston and airs in early 2019. His second special for the network will tape sometime next year. Both are follow-ups to his highly successful 2017 special “I’m Sorry For What I Said When I Was Hungry.”
Iglesias’ prior television appearances include Comedy Central’s hit series “Stand-Up Revolution” and the comedy special “Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy,” an unprecedented two-night comedy special generating over 15 million viewers. The special followed his previous DVD specials, “Hot & Fluffy” and “I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy,” which have sold millions of copies.
Iglesias is signed on to star in STXfilm’s animated feature “Ugly Dolls” alongside Kelly Clarkson, Pitbull, Blake Shelton, and Nick Jonas. His other film credits include “A Haunted House 2,” “Show Dogs,” “Magic Mike,” “Magic Mike XXL” and the animated films “Coco,” “Ferdinand,” “The Star,” “Smurfs: The Lost Village,” “Norm of the North,” “The Book of Life,” “The Nut Job,” and Disney’s “Planes.” Gabriel also starred in the theatrical stand-up concert comedy film, “The Fluffy Movie.”
