After cancelling a chunk of his 2017 tour earlier this year to focus on some “health and emotional issues,” stand-up comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, 41, is taking center stage again, this time at the AT&T Center for his FluffyMania World Tour to celebrate 20 years in comedy.

Although he still considers stand-up his passion, Fluffy has also become one of the most sought-after voice actors in the animated film industry over the last few years. Back in 2013, when the Current interviewed him for his role in Disney’s Planes, his first-ever voiceover gig for an animated feature, he said he was “not trying to chase a film career” and considered any opportunities he was offered aside from stand-up “frosting on the cake.”

To put his popularity in context, a week after his stop in San Antonio, Fluffy will have three animated movies playing in theaters at the same time (Coco, The Star and the upcoming Ferdinand where he voices a hedgehog named Cuatro). Fluffy might not be staking out a claim for an Oscar anytime soon, but that sure is a hell of a lot of buttercream on that Bundt.

$37-$77, Thursday, December 7, 8pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Pkwy., (210) 444-5000, attcenter.com.
