Latino comedian Rick Gutierrez has been cracking up audiences across the country with his throwback takes on traditional family values and outlooks on marriage for years, but it's about time some higher ups in Hollywood finally got wind of his comedic talents. Rick can currently be seen in FUSEtv’s “Fluffy Breaks Even.”The show premiered in 2015 and was the most watched program on the network. In June 2014 NUVO tv aired Rick’s one hour special, “I’m Not Mad, I’m Just A Parent,” produced by Gabriel Iglesias and LEG. Rick's other television credits include NBC's "Friday Night Videos," BET's "Comic View” and Showtime's Latino Laugh Festival. He has appeared in 2 seasons of the Comedy Central series “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand-Up Revolution.”He is currently touring clubs all around the country and appearing with Gabriel Iglesias on his #FluffyBreaksEven World Tour.


Gabriel IglesiasGabriel Iglesias has been described as a witty, electrifying and talented performer, who has the ability to consistently deliver a uniquely hilarious comedy experience. His high-octane show is a sure-fire hit: a mixture of storytelling, parodies, characters and sound effects that bring all his personal experiences to life. Gabriel's unique and animated comedy style has made him popular among fans of all ages.

On his way to the top, Gabriel was a regular at the Improv for years. Today he's mostly performing in theaters -- but every now and then he'll stop by for another jam-packed show.
