NEW YORK, September 15, 2014 – It’s the return of Fluffy! Worldwide comedic sensation Gabriel Iglesias is back on Comedy Central for the third season of “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution,” premiering on Friday, October 3 at Midnight ET/PT.
“Stand-Up Revolution” features Iglesias and some of his favorite comics taking over The Ontario Improv for six episodes of all-new stand-up sets. “The craziest man in show business,” Martin Moreno, returns as show announcer and guest commentator, and three-time GRAMMY® Award-winners Ozomatli are also back as the house band. Comedians featured this season are Ian Bagg, Barry Brewer, Gina Brillon, Shaun Latham, Mike Merrill, G Reilly, Alfred Robles, Jerry Rocha, Steve Simeone and Mark Viera.
In the premiere episode, featuring Kabir Singh and Lance Patrick, Iglesias bemoans the loss of an Ozomatli member currently on his honeymoon, Singh shows us the lighter side of arranged marriage, and Patrick has a very interesting take on a magic trick. The episode is rounded out by an all new “Hey It’s Fluffy” cartoon, in which we learn how Fluffy started wearing his signature shorts.
The “Stand-Up Revolution” and CC:Stand-Up Web sites will feature preview and highlight clips from each episode throughout the season, including every “Hey It’s Fluffy” animated segment, as well as a Twitter module that will display tweets from Iglesias (@fluffyguy), Martin Moreno (@Martincomic) and other comedians from the series.
Each episode of “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution” will be made available the day after air in the Comedy Central App.
The “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution” season three DVD will be released by Comedy Central Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment on Tuesday, November 11, and includes extended episodes featuring stand-up sets from Carlos Alazraqui, Luenell, and Gene Pompa, as well as an extended set from Rocha.
Iglesias’ highly anticipated stand-up comedy film “The Fluffy Movie” (Open Road Films) hit theaters this summer, and next up he will appear in 20th Century Fox’s animated film “The Book of Life” alongside Zoe Saldana and Channing Tatum. Iglesias can be seen in a recurring role on ABC’s new sitcom “Cristela,” and he will soon begin production on “Magic Mike XXL,” the highly anticipated sequel to the box office hit “Magic Mike.”
