Let’s say Fluffy was hungry. He was hungry to put on a show.
After an extended shutdown of major comedy shows due to COVID-19 restrictions across the country, comedian Gabriel Iglesias was back in Billings, Montana for his second show of the year.
At some point late at night, Gabriel Iglesias (aka Fluffy) finally told the crowd, “You know the show ended about 25 minutes ago, right?” And then he picked up his show clock from the stage floor of the Metra in Billings and showed the crowd how he had already passed the time by 25 minutes. Then it continued for at least another 45 minutes. And the crowd was riding with him every second.
I won’t divulge any of the jokes, as the crowd had to promise not to take any video or give any of the punchlines in what may be featured in their soon-to-be-recorded Netflix special. However, let’s just say that Fluffy delivered jokes about COVID-19 that had both sides laughing – masked or unmasked. And he faced the cancel culture and critics who attacked him for starring as Speedy Gonzales in the new movie Space Jam.
Luckily, as Fluffy and Martine were about to leave the stage, he let the crow pull out our cell phones and take a few pictures before they left.
