Gabriel Iglesias: Hot and Fluffy

Released: 2007
Reviewed: 11.16.09
Star rating: 4 out of 5

Gabriel is back where he came from, Bakersfield, California. In this Comedy Central production he uses a variety of voices and sound effects to talk about everything from his weight to his family and in between.

I hadn't heard of Gabriel before seeing this production and went into it with low expectations. Face it, the cover just looks like a bad Disney production. I was happily surprised that I was wrong, he is very good! I enjoyed this style of storytelling that is as much comedy as it is entertainment. Sometimes the punch lines weren't all that great but many were. Even better, he was able to deliver a few as a surprise which is unusual for comedians these days. I was also impressed at the lack of foul language and sexual or drug references. Again, unusual for comedians these days. He did walk the line of racism but I didn't find anything offensive.

The most enjoyable thing about him I think is the variety of voices he is able to produce. Absolutely amazing. And his facial expressions really bring home the jokes a lot of the time.

Overall not the funniest guy ever, but extremely entertaining and impressive that he can deliver as many laughs as he does cleanly.

With mild foul language and adult humor this one should be fine for teens and above.
