For the Reporter

The Washington State Fair welcomes comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias on Saturday, Sept. 22 for his One Show Fits All World Tour.

Iglesias is one of America’s most successful stand-up comedians performing to sold-out concerts throughout the world. He is also one of the most watched comedians on YouTube with more than 300,000,000 views.

Born in Chula Vista, Calif., Iglesias is the youngest of six children, raised by a single mother 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.

Iglesias’ 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.
