From a press release:

Comedian and actor Gabriel Iglesias returns to the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza in Wilkes-Barre on Friday, April 22, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. with the “Fluffy Breaks Even! Tour.”

Tickets, starting at $30, go on sale this Friday, Dec. 18 at 10 a.m. and are available by going to, calling Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000, at the NBT Bank Box Office at Mohegan Sun Arena (255 Highland Park Blvd., Wilkes-Barre Township), and all Ticketmaster outlets.

Born in Chula Vista, California, Iglesias is the youngest of six children, raised by a single mother. Growing up, the family lived in Section 8 housing in Long Beach. It was during his childhood that he developed a strong sense of humor to deal with the obstacles he faced. In 1997, he set out to hone his comedic skills, and performed stand-up anywhere he could find an audience, including biker bars and hole-in-the-wall joints. His stand-up comedy is a mixture of storytelling, parodies, characters, and sound effects that bring his personal experiences to life. His unique and animated comedy style has made him popular among fans of all ages.

Iglesias is one of America’s most successful stand-up comedians and performs to sold-out concerts around the world. He recently had the distinct honor of being one of the few comedians to headline and sell out Madison Square Garden in New York, the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and the Honda Center in Anaheim. This fall, Iglesias will be launching the “Fluffy Breaks Even!” concert tour.

Soon he’ll be joined by fellow comedians Martin Moreno and Rick Gutierrez to film Season 2 of the Fuse TV show “Fluffy Breaks Even,” a non-scripted comedic docu-follow series that premiered on Oct. 1. Audience members have an opportunity to see what it’s like for Iglesias to eat on the road, add up the calories, and then try to burn it off and “break even” with a different restaurant and workout in every episode.

He co-starred with Channing Tatum in Warner Bros’ “Magic Mike XXL,” reprising his role as Tobias, earlier this year, and he lit up the small screen on the ABC sitcom “Cristela.”

His feature film credits include co-starring roles in 20th Century Fox’s animated film “The Book of Life,” “A Haunted House 2,” and the hit animated films “The Nut Job” and “Disney’s Planes.” Iglesias also starred in the theatrical stand-up concert comedy film “The Fluffy Movie.”

For the past three years, Comedy Central has aired Iglesias’ hit series “Stand-Up Revolution.” The cable network also premiered “Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy” in an unprecedented two-night comedy special to over 15 million viewers. The special was a follow-up to his previous DVD specials, “Hot and Fluffy” and “I’m Not Fat… I’m Fluffy,” which have sold a combined total of over two million copies.
