Gabriel Iglesias is one of the biggest comedians, both literally and figuratively, working today. The self- proclaimed fluffy comedian has seen his act go from stand-up stages to Comedy Central, where he hosts his own show called, "Stand-up Revolution." The second season of the stand-up oriented show premieres Thursday, Oct. 4, on the network.
Your Comedy Central show "Stand-up Revolution" is going into its second season. What can fans expect this season that may not have been prevalent in Season 1?
Season 2 has a lot more surprises on it. First of all, I have comics from all over the world; I've got comics from Haiti, South Africa, from England, and from Canada. There's a good mixture; it's a very diverse show. Also, we're incorporating cartoons into the show. There's a segment where I show a cartoon every episode. They're based on my childhood; it's like an extreme childhood with a little edge to it. On every episode there's a show called, "Hey, it's Fluffy."
You do a lot of new material at the beginning of each show. Is this material the same as what you do on the road, or do you write specific for television?
Some of the material I stopped doing after I taped it, but there's still some material I'm still doing. As soon as it comes out on TV is usually when I stop doing it because I don't want people knowing what I'm going to say.
