GABRIEL "FLUFFY" IGLESIAS
Gabriel 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. Caution: This show does contain some mature content, but no profanity.

GCA FY16
"WEIRD AL" YANKOVIC
“Weird Al” Yankovic performed to a sold-out audience at the Center in 2011, and he will again as he rolls into town with his Mandatory World Tour. The biggest-selling comedy recording artist ever released his 14th album last year, “Mandatory Fun,” featuring parodies of such huge hits as Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” (“Tacky”), Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” (“Word Crimes”), Lorde’s “Royals” (“Foil”) and Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” (“Handy”). It debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, the first time in history that a comedy album has debuted at #1 on the chart. "Mandatory Fun" also received the award for Best Comedy Album at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards on February 8, Weird Al's fourth career Grammy.

STEVEN WRIGHT
GCA FY16
STEVEN WRIGHT

SINBAD

SINBAD
Actor and comedian Sinbad arrived on the stand-up scene with a “hit ’em in the face” style of comedy that has kept audiences rolling in the aisles for more than two decades.

The basis of his humor comes from everyone he meets, everything he’s seen, and everything he’s done.

GCA FY16
ANITA RENFROE
Christian comedian and author Anita Renfroe became an overnight Internet sensation on a YouTube video. She sang everything a mother says to her children in a single day, to the tune of “The William Tell Overture,” in under three minutes. With her unique brand of estrogen flavored musical comedy and blend of sass, edge and slightly offbeat takes on All Things Female, Anita  just says what everyone is thinking, but won't say out loud. The Gallo Center rocked with laughter when she was here in 2013.

TIM HAWKINS
GCA FY16
TIM HAWKINS
Since giving up his job as a grocery truck driver in 2012, Tim Hawkins has been meticulously crafting a no-bones, no-bull comedy show that entertains the entire family. With three hundred million online video views, over one hundred sold-out concerts every year, and a motley half million Facebook fans, Tim's Jackwagon Crew has grown into a gut-busting revolution of multi-generational proportions. Tim's approach to comedy can best be described as one part gifted and two parts twisted. And the three parts set him apart. His stand-up is surgical and honed to perfection, bringing to light the brokenness of human nature while marveling in its hilarity. In his own gracious words, "If you can't laugh at yourself, laugh at other people." His musical dexterity and knack for parody stand on their own, as he deftly rattles off everything from Dylan to Aldean to brilliantly weird original songs. The perils of marriage, parenting, and homeschooling may not exemplify the rock star life, but they make for rock star comedy. Still, Tim is no rock star.
