Seasonal Special Happenings

Fluffy Stuff

When: Thu., Nov. 14 2013

Chunky, Hawaiian shirt-wearing comic Gabriel Iglesias, who maintains he’s “fluffy” and not fat, likes to joke that he’s so successful now, he can splurge when he goes to 7-Eleven and order a slurpee. Iglesias’ story is a good one. He rightly hates the fact that he was originally called a “Latino comedian.” “Jerry Seinfeld isn’t introduced as Jewish comedian Jerry Seinfeld. Chris Rock isn’t African-American comedian Chris Rock,” he says. As his popularity surged and his appeal widened, he got acting and voiceover roles and has had parts in films such as Planes and Magic Mike. He performs tonight at 8 at the Akron Civic Theatre. Tickets are $40. (Niesel)
