  • Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias will film the final night of his four-week San Antonio run for a comedy special.
Current readers apparently like a good laugh.

After all, our two most-read stories of the week involve clowns — one them beloved for his funny standup routines and the other, well ... let's just say the humor surrounding him is most often unintentional.



In reference to the latter, our most-read story was about U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz using his Twitter account to blame Joe Biden for a shortage of dipping sauces at Chick-fil-A. Problem is, Cruz talks so much shit on social media, lots of folks couldn't tell whether he intended the swipe as a joke.

With regard to the former, nearly as many people dropped in to read a story about standup comic Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias — an entertainer who loves San Antonio just as much as we love him — who plans to film a Netflix special here.
