Val M says:

I love Fluffy!! How could you not? The guy’s willing to take on any subject, including his own imperfections–helps me better appreciate my own! As a bonus, my son has been hounding me for tix since the show was announced–it’d be nice to win them since I just transferred jobs ;)

David C. says:

I’ve been to every show he’s done in Fresno but I couldn’t afford tickets to this one. He’s fluffy like me. He’s a brilliant story teller and that’s what makes him an excellent comic. I became a fan when he did his “how many cows did it take to make that belt” joke he did on the Comedy Central show called “Make Me Laugh.”

We both love chocolate cake. And that right there, was enough for me to become a fan.

Juan Velazquez says:

He’s the funniest fat, excuse me…the funniest fluffy guy I’ve ever watched!

Love him “Fluffy” that’s what I always say!!

He’s so fluffy, I’m gonna die!

gilbert chavez says:

What I love the most about Gabriel is his style of comedy! He jokes about actual events he doesn’t sit down and write these jokes down and tell him tell himself its funny he just gets out there and expresses his life experiences in a hilarious way!! So I’d be extremely happy to win a pair of tickets to see Gabriel live it would be a experience I will never forget but even if I do not win I will support Gabriel to the fullest!! So GO GETTEM FLUFFY!!!! lol

Kristin W. says:

I have a blind date and need to do something fun!!!!!!

Israel says:

I’d love to win some for my wife. She loves his comedy.

Grace Solis says:

fluffy had me from the time I saw him and he did a routine which included a President Clinton impersonation. He said he was making fun of Clinton on stage and the Secret Service tracked him down, and put Clinton on the phone and asked him (in his best Clinton voice) “I heard you been talking about me gordito!) Since then, he has been on my A list!

I also got to take a picture with him at Chuckchansi, his front men waved us away, but Fluffy stepped right up and said “No’ I’ll take the picture”. That was all class!

gregwill77 says:

January 9th is my son’s 27th Birthday and making him laugh is the greatest birthday present I can give him!

Pick me, Pick Me,I just as fluffy as the rest of them. Would be my first time to see him in person.

Lisa Ovalle says:

I love Gabriel because he can be funny without being nasty. So many comedians get downright vulgar with their jokes and thinks that’s comedy. Gabriel doesn’t need to do that to be funny!

ANDREA says:

I’m Not Fat….I’m Fluffy!!!!

Celina says:

Because he represents la gente! Fluffier everywhere UNITE!

Jellys says:

Did someone say CAKE!!!!

I’ve seen him on cable numerous times. Makes me laugh because he is real passionate with his comedy. He can even laugh at himself which makes him that much better and he doesn’t get raunchy. Hope to see him in person.

My husband and I watch him every chance we get on TV. Would be great if we could have a date night without the kids. (:

Man this guy is awesome! I love laughing at his jokes and stories. I watched him for a couple years now and I need a good laugh with him live. It would be a great new years gift(:

Mari says:

Love Gabriel Iglesias because I can SO identify with his humor. It’s so nice to hear a hispanic comedian who’s standup routine is funny and just a little racy, instead of flat out filthy. Any comedian who can make you identify with him and can do so without reverting to filthy, profane filled humor is a winner in my book!

Ana Herrera says:

I was told Gabriel is related to Enrique Iglesias so I want to see if he too can sing.. Oh and if his hair is real.. Oh wait Gabriel does show his bald head unlike his primo!

kelley bell says:

He’s hilarious!!!

Sadly I haven’t had the chance to see any of his performances in the past, but to have an opportunity to win tickets to his upcoming show is great! Hope I get picked! PS. I LOVE chocolate cake too!!!

Brian Martinez says:

He has a great story about pranking a fellow comedian at a Fresno hotel. Anyone remember?

Sherry Lopez says:

Choose me because Gabriel had me at chocolate cake……observant, respectable, and a very talented comedian. Things have been crazy for the past several years and this would be a great way to start this year off with a whole new perspective.

luis solis says:

I would love to watch Gabriel live. We have several things in common including liking chocolate..cake lol

Leland Rueb says:

I know I’m late for this chance to win. That’s okay, I already bought tickets for Sioux City in March. I think Gabriel is great, but I’m not one for going to see shows of any kind. I’m taking my son, Jerry. He’s 19, 5’7″ and about 115 lbs. I raised him alone after he was diagnosed with diabetes at age 2 1/2. He finally got to meet his mom and get to know her a little after she was diagnosed with terminal cancer. He got his mom back for his 17th Birthday. She lived with us for two months and was gone. After I bought tickets, Jerry said that giving Fluffy Guy a hug was on his bucket list. The show is March 1. The tickets were a Christmas present. Jerry’s birthday is March 17. A “hug” would be a great birthday present. Any chances of winning that?
