Grab your friends, family or date for this once-in-a-lifetime comedy experience coming to our home state! Sunday, Oct. 2, world-renowned comedian, actor and TV personality Gabriel Iglesias will be performing his 2022 tour at Newark’s Prudential Center.
The comically named circuit, “Gabriel ‘Fluffy’ Iglesias Back on Tour,” hit the road again after the comedian sold-out Dodger Stadium to 45,000 clamoring fans. Gabriel made history as the first stand-up comedian to sell out the famed stadium along with other entertainment icons Elvis Presley, Madonna, The Beatles and Elton John.
His performance was part of Netflix’s biggest special this year, “Netflix Is A Joke,” which starred other headline comedians, though Iglesias was the only entertainer to sell out the stadium.
Iglesias has a long-standing history with Netflix, with his series “Mr. Iglesias” and his stand-up special “One Show Fits All” being fan-favorites on the streaming platform. His previous specials have sold millions of DVDs around the world, prompting Netflix to offer a third special that will be released this year.
The Hollywood Reporter has hailed Iglesias as one of the “Top 40 Comedy Players” alongside the likes of Jerry Seinfeld and Chris Rock. Iglesias’ popularity has spanned the country and the world as he’s also sold-out Madison Square Garden in N.Y., the Staples Center in Los Angeles and Sydney Opera House in Australia.
In addition to comedy, Iglesias has a successful career in film starring in “Magic Mike” and “Magic Mike XXL.” He’s voice acted in animated films, including “Space Jam” and Disney’s “Coco.”
As a child, Iglesias used comedy to combat the obstacles he faced. His ambition to become a comedian drove him to perform anywhere he could find an audience, from biker bars to no-name restaurants. Audience members fell in love with his animated style which has propelled him to the entertainer we know today.
Taking the stage at Prudential Center comes as no surprise. Having ranked in the Top 8 of performing arts centers by Pollstar and Billboard, Prudential Center is recognized nationally as a premier venue.
