Gabriel Iglesias’ Stadium Fluffy Netflix Special awarded Stand-Up Special of the Year.
Our 2nd annual Nerdtropolis Awards will go live in just a few weeks, and we are excited to announce our first winner, Gabriel Iglesias. For 2022 we have added a Stand-Up Special Of The Year category. We had tons of exceptional nominees which also included Jo Koy, Lil Rel Howery, Bill Burr, David Spade, and the late Norm Macdonald. Iglesias, aka Fluffy, took the year by storm when he put on a show for a sold-out crowd at Dodger Stadium. It all happened during the Netflix Is a Joke comedy festival. Iglesias was the first comedian to perform at the largest Major League Baseball venue.
Gabriel Iglesias sold out his weekend shows in Houston!
We had the extreme pleasure of presenting the award personally to Iglesias in Houston, Texas, after his fantastic performance at the Improv. His stand-up is one of a kind, as he delivers engaging and personal stories intertwined with jokes that will have you in stitches. Iglesias’ stand up perfomance. In addition, he has a close connection with his fans as he shares intimate stories and information about his life, making you feel like you are his close friends.
During his first weekend performance, he went over his time by close to an hour which was a real treat, and promised to do the same for the next show, which already had a massive crowd waiting outside. Iglesias is one of the most humbling comedians of my generation, and I will never forget the first time I stumbled upon him on TV on Nickelodeon when he was a cast member of All That.
The comedy special titled Gabriel Iglesias: Stadium Fluffy Live From Los Angeles dropped on October 18th on Netflix. It was directed by Manny Rodriguez, who worked with Iglesias on past specials such as One Show Fits Alland I’m Sorry For What I Said When I Was Hungry.
