Apparently, San Antonio just can't get enough Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias. Both in sickness and in health.

The Current racked up a lot of traffic this spring with the comedian announcing then extending his series of summer shows in the Alamo City. So did two stories that broke this week after the LA-based funnyman revealed he'd contracted COVID-19 during the end of his stand.

Iglesias' COVID announcement was our most-read article of the week, and a story that broke moments later about the Tobin Center's refund plans for the stand-up's scrapped shows also clawed its way into the top 10.

Read on for those — and eight other top stories that had absolutely nothing to do with "Fluffy."
