Comedian Gabriel Iglesias to Perform at The Pearl at The Palms July 25

Gabriel IglesiasComedian Gabriel Iglesias brings his hilarious mix of storytelling, parodies, characters and sound effects to The Pearl inside the Palms Casino Resort on Saturday, July 25, 2009.

Gabriel Iglesias is one of the fastest rising stars in comedy and was put on the comedic map with his appearance on Galavision’s “Que Locos!” television show. The highly successful comedy hour quickly spawned into a nationwide tour of sold-out performances across the country, leading Iglesias to numerous film and television roles along the way.

Described as the “fluffy” comic in a Hawaiian shirt, the now 32-year old funny man started in comedy at a very early age. After renting a comedy tape starring Eddie Murphy while in 5th grade, the soon-to-be comedian was motivated to audition for his school’s talent show. Iglesias went on to become the comedian he is today, most recently recording his second one hour comedy special “2 Hot 2 Fluffy” which debuts on Comedy Central in October 2009. Credits along the way include “Last Comic Standing,” “My Wife & Kids,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and countless others.

This event is presented by Andrew Hewitt and Live Nation. The Pearl Box Office is open from noon – 7:00 p.m. daily. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. and show time is 8:00 p.m. The Pearl is home to Miller Lite Live, presented by Cricket Wireless and sponsored by Citi; for more information on upcoming concerts, please call 702-942-6888.
