Gabriel Iglesias is gearing up for some record-setting gigs at his beloved Dodger Stadium, and, in the wake of the Dave Chappelle incident … he’s not worried about getting got by violent hecklers.
Gabriel, AKA Fluffy, joined “TMZ Live” to talk about being the first comedian ever to perform at the iconic home of the L.A. Dodgers, as a part of the “Netflix Is A Joke” 12-day festival.
Fluffy tells us he wanted to go big or go home, and sure enough … this is the biggest venue he’s ever played. He’s filling more than 45,000 seats this weekend, making it the 3rd biggest comedy show ever … and the biggest ever in Los Angeles.
Of course, the attack on Chappelle is on the mind of all comedians — many are ramping up security measures — but Gabriel says he’s not worried at all.
He broke news with us about someone jumping on his stage last week in Seattle … revealing his security team — which he calls the best — immediately took down the guy. But, “professionally,” he says.
Gabriel’s hitting the stage — in the Dodgers’ outfield — Friday and Saturday night.
