Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy (Blu-ray Review)13 Apr, 2013 By: Angelique Flores
$16.99 DVD, $22.98 Blu-ray
Comedian Gabriel Iglesias has released on DVD and Blu-ray what is arguably his best stand-up performance yet.
Set in Hawaii and staged at the Hawaii Theater, Iglesias (aka Fluffy) dons one of his signature Hawaiian shirts and sprinkles in some jokes that will especially hit home to Hawaiians. But, as with all of Iglesias’ humor, the show is universally funny to everyone.
He impresses with even more of his spot-on voices, accents and sound effects this time around. And he also comes with a message of unity and breaking stereotypes, delivered subtly yet hysterically funny through a number of stories and jokes from his trip to Saudi Arabia.
The disc contains several bonus features that shouldn’t be missed. It’s advised to “Play All” when viewing the DVD or Blu-ray, so you can watch “Fluffy Presents: Alfred Robles” before watching Iglesias’ stand-up show. It features comedian Alfred Robles’ opening act and provides a reference to one of Fluffy’s jokes.
In “Encore: Magic Mike Story,” Iglesias recounts some sidesplitting stories from the set of Magic Mike, in which he played a small role.
The outtake “Leonard’s/Malasadas” offers up a short but funny bonus joke, while “Fluffy: Behind the Scenes” is a 24-minute featurette that shows Fluffy and his crew and some of their antics. This latter featurette has less laughs and is more for the fans to see what it might be like to tour with Iglesias and his comic friends.
Toward the end of the show, Iglesias said he’s taking a break after this special. I already can’t wait for Fluffy’s return.
