While his signature line Im not fat Im fluffy! has been taken up by the amply-fleshed all over, comedian Gabriel Iglesias also comments on the pertinent social issues of the day, like alcohol abuse. You know youre really drunk when youre doing circles in the parking lot and cant find the exit, he says in his routines, adding that when the cop comes over, one of two things crosses your mind: Im okay Im fine I can beat this or I better call home and tell the kids Im going to jail.
Iglesias first gathered national attention as a finalist on the 2006 edition of Last Comic Standing. He was disqualified for smuggling a BlackBerry into the show, supposedly to communicate with family and friends. Rumor is he was actually ordering pizza. 7:30 p.m. Friday, 8 p.m. Saturday.
