Gabriel Iglesias is coming back to Fresno and in a big way.

The stand-up comedian and TV star announced he’ll play the Save Mart Center on his Beyond The Fluffy World Tour. He’ll perform at the arena May 8, 2020, before heading to Sacramento’s Golden 1 Center and a doubleheader of shows at the Gallo Center in Modesto.

Tickets for the Fresno show are $41.50-$76.50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the arena box office or online at Presales start Oct. 30.

“There is still no greater thrill for me than to perform standup live, I’m so excited for this tour and to reconnect with all my fans, it’s going to be Fluffy-licious,” Iglesias said in a statement announcing the tour.

Iglesias is no stranger to Fresno.

He has been a staple at The Big Fresno Fair, playing to sell-our crowds for six consecutive years. He was noticeably absent this year.

The move to the larger venue makes sense. Iglesias has headlined and sold out venues like the Staples Center, Madison Square Garden and the Sydney Opera House. His Netflix series, “Mr. Iglesias,” was picked up for an additional 12 episodes that will stream in 2020. His stand-up special ”One Show Fits All” is streaming now.
