Early life

Gabriel Iglesias was born Gabriel J. Iglecias in San Diego. He is of Mexican-American Heritage. His mother placed a letter "c" in his surname in retaliation for his father's absence during his birth, though he does not use this spelling in his every day life, preferring to use the one with the "s". He and his mother lived in Riverside, Corona, Santa Ana, Baldwin Park and Compton before settling in Long Beach, where Iglesias spent most of his life growing up.


Iglesias appeared in season 6 of the Nickelodeon sketch comedy series All That in 2000.

Iglesias' comedy employs a mixture of storytelling, parody, characters, and sound effects that bring his personal issues to life. He often references about his weight, talking, for example, about how little dancing it takes for him to work up a sweat at the nightclub, or how hearing his girlfriend coo the words "chocolate cake" over the telephone works in a manner akin to phone sex for him. He sometimes refers to the "Five Levels of Fatness", and labels himself as the fourth (six levels in his last Comedy Central special).

Iglesias appeared on the Galavision TV show Que Locos!. He subsequently was guest-starred on the ABC sitcom My Wife and Kids, and the Fox TV animated comedy Family Guy. His stand-up has been featured on Jimmy Kimmel Live!,

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,

The Late Late Show,

Good Morning America,

Showtime at the Apollo

and BET'SComic View.

On the big screen, he has appeared in the independent films El Matador and The Surfer King, in which he played the role of Aokee, a water park concession manager.Iglesias was a contestant on the fourth season of reality TV series Last Comic Standing in 2006, surviving elimination to become one of the final eight comics. He was disqualified at that point for having used a smuggled BlackBerry to communicate with family and friends, which violated the rules of the show.

In November 2009 Comedy Central released the DVD of the show Gabriel Iglesias: I'm Not Fat... I'm Fluffy.
