Gabriel Iglesias Presents: Stand-Up Revolution Tour marks the second stand-up tour that COMEDY CENTRAL has produced with the comedian. Last year's COMEDY CENTRAL Live: Gabriel Iglesias The Fluffy Shop Tour was a smash success with over 70 performances in theatre-size venues, 125,000 tickets sold and $4 million in box office revenue. In 2009, he also performed at "COMEDY CENTRAL Park," a night of free stand-up comedy live from Central Park's SummerStage to a capacity crowd of 5,000.
On Tuesday, November 15, "Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution" DVD will be released by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. The uncensored two disc set featuring over 40 minutes of new material from Iglesias, includes extended episodes with over two hours of content not appearing in the broadcast episodes, outtakes and the music video for the show's theme song, "Hey It's Fluffy."
Recently, Iglesias starred in COMEDY CENTRAL's brand-new stand-up series, "Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution." Filmed at Phoenix's newest club, Stand Up Live, the series featured Iglesias opening each of the six episodes with all-new material and introducing different stand-up guests during each show. The show included music from three-time Grammy® award-winners Ozomatli, the house band.
Iglesias has also starred in two COMEDY CENTRAL one-hour specials, both of which had corresponding DVDs. His last release, "I'm Not Fat... I'm Fluffy" debuted in 2009 and his first special/DVD "Hot & Fluffy" was released in 2007. Iglesias has sold over one million DVD & Blu-ray units to date.
Iglesias' television credits include "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Conan," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "The Family Guy," "Good Morning America" and "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson." He has also headlined the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal and Toronto. In 2009, Gabriel had the unique opportunity to be the headliner at the Amman Jordan Comedy Festival, the first of its kind in the Arab world - he recently returned to Amman Jordan for a second visit in 2010. Iglesias' world tour performances include locations such as Australia (Melbourne and Sydney) and Saudi Arabia (Riyadh, Khobar, Qatar and Dubai.) On November 5, 2011 Iglesias began his European tour of Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Belgium and England.
