Tickets go on sale this weekend for a string shows in May starring comedian Gabriel Iglesias in Rancho Mirage.

Iglesias will be in town for three days, May 2, 3 and 5, for his “Beyond The Fluffy World Tour – Go Big or Go Home” at the Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa Rancho Mirage.

“There is still no greater thrill for me than to perform standup live” Iglesias said in a news release. “I’m so excited for this tour and to reconnect with all my fans, it’s going to be Fluffy-licious.”

The 43-year-old comedian from San Diego, nicknamed “Fluffy,” often references his weight in his comedy. “!Oh, I’m not fat, I’m fluffy,” he often says.

Iglesias secured his spot in the comedic mainstream after competing on the fourth season of the reality TV series “Last Comic Standing” in 2006.

He has gone on to star in several specials aired on primetime cable, including “Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy” in 2013 on Comedy Central.

In 2011, Comedy Central released “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand Up Revolution,” a standup showcase series produced and hosted by the comic, which ran for three seasons.

Iglesias currently stars in the Netflix original comedy series “Mr. Iglesias,” where he plays a high school teacher. The first season comprises 10 half-hour episodes and premiered last June.

The Show at the Agua Caliente Resort Casino Spa Rancho Mirage is located at 32-250 Bob Hope Drive.

Tickets for the shows, which range from $75 to $95, go on sale Saturday at 8 a.m.
