Overview

The program features Gabriel Iglesias as an emcee features new material and introduces two or three lesser known comedians looking for a big break on television. Each comedian presents a short set of jokes, which is edited to last about five minutes on the airing of the show.

Production

Before a season would start, Gabriel and the other comedians would perform on a bigger stage than the normal comedy clubs they would usually perform whenever the season starts. As the show's started becoming more popular and more popular, Comedy Central decided to let Gabriel and his friends to perform on television, For each season the show will have a different setting for example, the first season took place on Phoenix, Arizona. Iglesias' friend Martin Moreno appears as his sidekick similar to Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter's relationship. Gabriel also got Ozomatli to serve as the house band and got to write the show's theme song. Gabriel wanted his show to be similar to John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show but rather than having comedians people already knew, he wanted to introduce his lesser known friends who are comedians.

Reception

Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand Up Revolution has been met with mixed reviews. Although many enjoy the show because of its new jokes and Gabriel's voices, some critics don't find the lesser known comedians funny and saying that they're just ruining the show instead of having Fluffy say more jokes about his friends, family, journey, and personal experiences at home. A positive review came from Hector Saldaña of the San Antonio Express-News who praised Iglesias and the other comedians he assembled for the show, calling it "one of the all-time funniest comedy package tours" and Iglesias a "comedy genius".[3]
