Ladies, get your grooming brushes, petting fingers and chicken wings ready. That's right, the fluffy guy is back in action, and he's ready to be... well, see above. The jokester/fluff-ster in question here is Gabriel Iglesias: he of the "I'm not fat, I'm fluffy" fame. Call it whatever you like, but either way, Iglesias has been cleaning up from a banner year, amid promises of an even bigger (or perhaps fluffier) future in store. After landing a supporting role in the widely received male stripper extravaganza Magic Mike, Iglesias returned to the preliminary world of stand-up, and Comedy Central recently released his second comedy special, "Aloha Fluffy: Parts 1 and 2." Currently on tour in support of his ongoing commitment to all things fat AND funny, Iglesias is well worth the price of admission for any fan of good-natured, self-deprecating hilarity. But, uh, you may be asked to check the chicken wings at the door.
