HAMBURG, NEW YORK – Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, one of America’s most successful stand-up comedians, will bring his brand-new material to The Buffalo News Grandstand on Friday, August 19th, 2022 at 8pm.  He recently performed two sold out shows at Dodger Stadium this past weekend, the first comedian to perform and sell out there.

Its been 25 years since Gabriel hit the stage for the first time. Performing to sold-out venues around the world, Iglesias was recently featured in The Hollywood Reporter’s Top 40 Comedy Players of 2018 issue alongside comedy giants Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock and Lorne Michaels. California native Iglesias honed his comedic skills in biker bars and dives before becoming one of the most popular comics in the U.S. Unlike many in the stand-up world, Iglesias’ globally appealing comedy stays mostly clean and his non-controversial material appeals to audiences of all ages and walks of life. Gabriel’s stand-up comedy is a mixture of storytelling, parodies, characters and sound effects that bring his personal experiences to life. He is also one of the most watched comedians on YouTube with almost a billion views and has over 25 million followers across social media.

Tickets for Gabriel Iglesias will go on sale Friday, June 10th at 9:00am. Preferred track seats are $70, reserved track seats are $55 and general admission tickets are $40. Tickets may be purchased online via
