CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. --
Comedian Gabriel Iglesias met with and took “selfies” with hundreds of his fans at the sneak preview of his new movie “The Fluffy Movie” at the Bulldog Box office on Camp Pendleton, July 18.
After spending time with guests he got on stage and told some jokes and then introduced his movie to the audience, he expressed his gratitude and thanks to them and then started the movie.
Iglesias later spoke about his most fond memory with service members.
“I was in Iraq and we were suppose to go off base to another location to do a meet and greet, or what they were calling it a ‘grip and grin,’ and I was like, ‘What is that?’ Then I got it, but I couldn’t go because they couldn’t find a bullet proof vest big enough for me,” said Iglesias about his most fond memory with a service member. “They were trying to get a bullet proof vest off of a soldier who was a big guy, and he was like ‘I don’t care how funny you are man, I am not giving up my vest for you.’ I almost got the vest off of him, everyone caught us wrestling.”
