Gabriel Iglesias is one of the fastest rising comics today! With his unique brand of humor, loveable stage presence and a wide range of voices and impressions, it's no wonder he became an instant favorite on "Last Comic Standing." Now you can see Comedy Central's "Comic of the Year" in a sold out concert performance at the historic Fox Theater in Bakersfield, California.Written by
The cop gets to the window and says the same thing that they all say, right, "Do you know why I stopped you?" It was too easy. I looked at him and I said, "'Cause you can smell it."

I've heard Gabriel Iglesias before, so I was familiar with his style and had enjoyed his previous Comedy Central stand-up performance. For those who don't know who he is, he's a young comedian who's gotten a lot of attention lately because he is very talented and funny. His trademark are jokes about his extreme weight, his ability to do funny voices as well as tell stories.
This time, he's once again doing his stand-up routine and like the last one it is very funny. However, there are two hits against it. First, his earlier one was perhaps a bit funnier and it's hard to keep "hitting it out of the park". There's a tendency for the fans to expect the same very high level of entertainment and it's natural they'd compare the performances like I did. Secondly, and this is particular to me, I don't particularly like jokes about drinking--especially ones that make getting drunk sound funny or cool. And, since he had quite a few references to alcohol, I was a bit put off in the first portion of the routine. But, fortunately, while his stories weren't quite as funny as the previous special, they were still very good and I did laugh quite a bit.
