If you thought that Gabriel Iglesias’s last DVD was phenomenal, his latest DVD “I’m not Fat…I’m Fluffy” is fantastic! Awesome comedy from beginning to end from one of today’s top comedians out there. Gabriel doesn’t need to use sex or profanity in his routine to be funny, definitely a clean performance that will entertain you and make you laugh! Overall, this DVD is highly recommended!

Gabriel Iglesias returns to the stage in this all-new comedy special in front of a packed house at the historic Plaza Theater in El Paso, Texas. Go to the restroom before you watch this and be ready to watch it again and again. 2 Hot 2 Fluffy will be a classic!!!
The comedian known as the “Fluffy Man”. Gabriel Iglesias is one of the hottest comedians out there. Latino flair and hilarious delivery, from his voice impressions to jokes about his weight or personal issues, he knows how to get the audience laughing from beginning to end. There is no slow down in deliver, Iglesias is just hilarious!
Iglesias is known from being the finalist of the fourth season of “Last Comic Standing” in 2006 but in 2007, it was the success of his 2nd special Comedy Central 2007 DVD “Hot & Fluffy” (which sold over 300,000 copies) which would propel Gabriel Iglesias as a comedian that can sell out live performances and also comedy DVD’s.
Earlier in the year, Iglesias released a double album CD titled “We Luf Fluffy” from performances from 2006 & 2008 and now he returns with a new DVD titles “I’m not Fat…I’m Fluffy” which was recorded in El Paso.
The tracklist on this DVD are as follows:
- Return to El Paso
- Oh Hello No!!
- I Hear the Bell
- New Daddy
- I Do Voices Everywhere
- My Girl
- Cop Story 1
- Copy Story 2
- Cakes and More Cakes
- Dropping Frankie Off
- Car Was Stolen
On his latest DVD, “I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy”, Iglesias is literally on top of his game delivery joke after joke. From sharing stories of his return to El Paso and talking about a time he got drunk and ended up at an alternative gay bar to his first major gift from Nickelodeon to jokes about his personal life with his girlfriend and her son, Gabriel Iglesias’s performance is just hilarious and magnificent. This time around, because of the family experiences that he has to share, these are situations that people can relate to and again, the voices he does is just top notch as he is able to switch voices on command and just be surprised when you hear it.
But you cold tell that his relationship with his girlfriend’s son Frankie has brought new life to his routine and the fact that he can take those personal experiences and make them funny is just what makes the “Fluffy Man” so wonderful to watch on stage and he doesn’t have to get nasty or profane to make the audience laugh.
VIDEO & AUDIO:
“Gabriel Iglesias – I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy: Live From El Paso” is presented in widescreen. There are several angles closeup, stagewise, behind the audience and from a stage angle to showcase the audience at the front. But overall, editing is well-done and stage setup is simple with pretty cool looking for the backdrop at the Plaza Theatre in El Paso, Texas. Simple and clean. Lighting is well-done and for the most part, editing is good, no quick cuts to make the viewer dizzy. Overall, a job well-done.
Audio is presented in Dolby Digital and audio is clear and understandable. Audience can be heard quite well. Personally, I had my receiver set on stereo on all channels to have a more immersive soundstage in the room.
“Gabriel Iglesias – I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy: Live From El Paso” comes with the following special features:
- Deleted Scene: High School Reunion – (7:45) A deleted scene in which Gabriel had to stop his routine because parts of the towel (lint) was all over his face and thus it hurt the pacing. But Gabriel manages to take the situation and make it humorous for the audience.
- Fluffy’s Friends Hit the Stage: Martin Moreno – (4:59) Martin jokes about getting older and also today’s young Latino guys who are wearing tight pants, tight shirts, plucking their eyebrows and how they are looking effeminate.
- Fluffy’s Friends Hit the Stage: Noe Gonzalez - (4:09) Noe’s comedy is more adult-oriented. Noel jokes about his size and the concept of size.
- Onstage Q&A With the Fans – (8:07) Gabriel Iglesias answers questions from his fans.
Gabriel Iglesias is definitely one of the most entertaining comedians today. Where Latino comedians such as George Lopez and Paul Rodriguez represented the 80′s and 90′s, Gabriel Iglesias is a comedian that entertains people of all ages. From jokes about video games and his family to jokes about sweating on stage and how it starts to smell like chicharones. He just makes you laugh and laugh some more and this is what I found most interesting, this is probably one of the few Comedy Central DVD’s, if not the first where the comedy routine is quite clean. Granted, he may be saying things in Spanish but in English… it’s a clean routine.
If anything, this is a comedian who cares about his fans and he tells everyone straight up, if you see him at a restaurant, say hi. How he is onstage and in real life are the same person and the fact that he gives that Q&A after his performance in order to get the fans a chance to know more about him, goes to show how Iglesias is such a class act. Positive personality but knows how to make the audience laugh…he’s a talented comedian.
Also, I have to say that “I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy: Live from El Paso” was a performance where he manages to keep the same excitement going from beginning to end. His delivery is smooth, continuous and for the most part, just fantastic.
There’s nothing negative about this Comedy Central DVD at all. If you thought “Hot & Fluffy” was a phenomenal DVD, then you have to give “I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy: Live from El Paso” a try because this is a fantastic comedy DVD.
