Early life 

Gabriel Iglesias was born in San Diego, California. His father is comedian and actor Gabriel Iglesias Sr., a show called “I’m Not Fat… I’m Fluffy” on the TV channel Nick-at-Nite. He started working as an entertainer at age 14, where he would do comedy sketches with his family for conventions or special events to help pay their bills during hard times. When he turned 20 years old, he moved to Hollywood and struggled through many different auditions before being hired by The Comedy Store and Laugh Factory to have a Latino comedian represent them which helped open doors for him in the entertainment industry.

The comedian’s first television appearance came on Fox’s “The Late Show with David Letterman” in 1994. His first album, Why Is This White Boy Laughing? was released a year later. In the 1990s and early 2000s, he would usually work as a comedian for other people’s acts at comedy clubs while performing his material during open-mike nights, until eventually making enough of an impression that they let him do more sets on stage without having to pay the usual cover charge at the door.

Gabriel Iglesias is best known for roles such as Maximo Oliveros in The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps (2000), Ernie Reyes Jr., Cyclops in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) or Julio Sanchez in Magic Mike XXL (2015).

He also has his animated series on Disney XD titled El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera. In this show, Iglesias voices a super-powered version of himself called Supermax, the leader of four kids committed to fighting crime in their home town. It originally ran from 2007 until 2012.


Personal life

He spent his early years growing up in Long Beach, California, where he attended elementary school. Gabriel went to James A. Foshay Junior High School before he attended Polytechnic High School. To pursue the arts as a career option, Gabriel transferred to La Quinta High School for the Performing Arts and graduated at age 18 in 1994 with honours of President’s Scholar status from the University of Redlands (2004). After high school.

Gabriel enrolled at San Diego State University, majoring in Theatre but dropped out after one semester because it interfered with his stand-up comedy routine that had become successful over time, touring around Southern California colleges performing at various universities. After dropping out, Gabriel went back to Long Beach and was doing his comedy routine at the Comedy Store in Hollywood before he eventually quit just six months later because of financial reasons.


Gabriel Iglesias first started performing as a comedian when he was only 15 years old while attending La Quinta High School for the Arts & Humanities in Lancaster, California, with friends who had formed their stand-up comedy group called “The Kool Kids”. The Kool Kids would meet every Friday morning to write new material and practice what they wrote together on stage that night at local coffee shops or small clubs like Pacific Coast Brewing Company [PCC], Kellogg’s Café, Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre (now Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre), and the Comedy Store.

Gabriel started performing at The Improv in Hollywood but was too young to be admitted through their doors, so he would wait outside until some comedian who had served on stage came out for a cigarette break before they got back inside; Gabriel would then ask them if he could perform next once they finished smoking.


In 1993, after his first year of college at San Diego State University, Gabriel returned home to Long Beach, where he spent time working regular jobs while trying to make it as a comedian and actor. In 1995 when one of his friends from La Quinta High School – Mike Skaff – moved into Los Angeles with dreams that didn’t come true, like Iglesias and worked as a comedian at the Laugh Factory on Sunset Blvd., Gabriel took Skaff’s place and went to work there.
