Michelle and I asked to be put on the special call back list if tickets for Gabriel Iglesias opened up at the Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach. This club is special, because it is famous for paying new comics trying to get their start. For their generosity, a lot of the comics come back regularly even when they’ve become stars. Gabriel is one of these comics that hasn’t forgotten where he got his start and comes back on a monthly basis to do shows. Yesterday I got a call saying tickets were available so we decided to check out the show.
As you can see, he is a very large man. It’s always the big guys that are funny. He absolutely killed the set and even did some improvising with the crowd.
He stuck around after the show to take pictures. MySpace just launched their new site, which is focusing heavily on musicians and comedians, so they had this little bench made for taking pictures. Gabriel was afraid to sit on it, so he took pictures standing behind it. He’s bigger than both Michelle and I combined! He’s a super friendly guy and so funny. Check out some of his material if you get a chance. You won’t be disappointed.
