GABRIEL IGLESIAS BIOGRAPHY
Gabriel Iglesias is one of America’s most successful stand-up comedians performing to sold-out concerts around the world. Iglesias was featured in The Hollywood Reporter’s Top 40 Comedy Players of 2018 issue alongside comedy giants Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Lorne Michaels. Unlike many in the stand-up world, Iglesias’ globally appealing comedy stays mostly clean and his non-controversial material appeals to audiences of all ages and walks of life. Iglesias has also had the distinct honor of being one of the few to headline and sell-out Madison Square Garden, Staples Center and The Sydney Opera House. He is also one of the most watched comedians on YouTube with over 380,000,000 views and has over 14 million followers across social media.
Iglesias is currently in production as star and Executive Producer of the upcoming multi-cam comedy series for Netflix Mr. Iglesias. Iglesias plays a good-natured public high school teacher who works at his alma mater. He takes on teaching gifted but misfit kids to not only save them from being “counseled out” by a bully bureaucrat Assistant Principal, but also to help them unlock their full potential. The series will have 10 half-hour episodes and will premiere in 2019.
In addition to the Netflix comedy series, Iglesias will star in two stand-up comedy specials for the network. The first, titled One Show Fits All, was recently filmed in front of a sold out audience at the Toyota Center in Houston and will air in early 2019. His second special for the network will tape sometime in the next year, both of these specials are follow-ups to his highly successful 2016 special I’m Sorry For What I Said When I Was Hungry.
