As the pandemic continues to keep us quarantined, and with stand up comedy at a stand still, it’s time to revisit some of our past interviews with leading Latinx comics – and there is probably no Latinx comic bigger than Gabriel Iglesias.
Now, while real school may be on hold, Mr. Iglesias, the fan-favorite sitcom starring the SoCal-bred comedian, is not. The TV show will return for a second season in June. The comedy series centers on “Gabe,” a recovering alcoholic and public school history teacher who plies his trade at his alma mater. The cast also includes Sherri Shepherd, Gloria Aung, Tucker Albrizzi, Jacob Vargas, Maggie Geha, Cree Cicchino, Fabrizio Zacharee Guido, Coy Stewart, Kathryn Feeney, Richard Gant, and Oscar Nuñez.
As you wait for the second season to kick off, check out our interview with Gabriel (shot before COVID-19) in which he discusses what went into getting Mr. Iglesias on Netflix.
