Dillon Garcia

Comedian Dillon Garcia makes his first stop as a headliner at the Improv Comedy Showcase, and he tells us fans shouldn’t expect any fat jokes during his routine. Plus-size comedian Gabriel Iglesias (a.k.a. Fluffy) befriended the self-proclaimed chubby Garcia early in his career. “He told me not to make fat jokes about myself. That’s too easy; everybody expects that. He also said that staying fat in order for the fat jokes to work, that was dangerous. So what if you have some great fat punch lines if you can’t walk up a few stairs without getting out of breath?” Garcia, who is all of 22, has spent the past six years onstage.

8 p.m. Improv Comedy Showcase, 7620 Katy Freeway. For information, call 713-333-8800 or visit improvhouston.com. $10.
