Apr. 26–EL PASO — Bobby Marquez didn’t know until he stepped inside the Plaza Theatre for the first time Saturday night that the comedian he w as about to see, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, would be taping his next Comedy Central special that night.
“We just bought the tickets right now,” Marquez said as he settled into row L, seat 5 on the left side of the historic theater’s floor seating area, one row behind his wife, Amorette, and a couple of friends. “I didn’t know he was gonna film it.”
Marquez, who has caught Iglesias’ act at the Comic Strip and once ran into him at a Chili’s restaurant, might have been the only one in the 6:30 p.m. show’s 1,800-person audience who didn’t know that Iglesias would be doing his signature voices and sound effects for the cable comedy network’s millions come this fall.
