Here at Behind the Thrills, we love us some Theme Parks. No doubt about it. However, there is a great big world out there, and sometimes we need to take a step out of the parks and look at something else. Join us as we take a look outside of the world of theme parks and into the world of movies, music, television, hotels…pretty much anything else we happen to stumble across.
However whatever we look at will have some relation to the theme park world, granted not directly…but in a round about sort of way.
So join us now as we lift up the harnesses, put down our cup of Butterbeer and take a walk…Offsite.
This week’s Offsite Adventure-Gabriel Iglesias Presents: Stand Up Revolution on DVD
Gabriel Iglesias is a man after my own, unhealthy, overweight heart. I’m not saying Gabriel is any of those things, but he is what he is and embraces it. In October Comedy Central aired Stand-Up Revolution, which was seven weekly episodes of 22 minutes of some of the funniest stand-up comedy in ages. Gabriel Iglesias stole the hearts of the nation on Last Comic Standing and has kept going strong and never slowing down over the past few years. He’s one of the hottest guys in comedy right now, and he’s using that to his advantage. No, he’s not pulling a Larry the Cable Guy and making a string of crappy ass movies. He talked Comedy Central into letting him host his own show, and fill it not only with great Latino comics, a Grammy Award winning band, and some of his friends, but also comics of all races, colors and creeds that are just damn funny.
Relates to Theme Parks How?
Gabriel Iglesias is not only headlining his own T.V. show and tour, but he’s also going to be performing at Busch Gardens Tampa’s very first Senior Grad Bash. Plus, the guy loves theme parks. He’s talked about them several times in his routine.
If you missed the Comedy Central episodes of Stand-Up Revolution, never fear. You can now purchase the DVD for your very own. The 2 disc set features all 7 episodes. But they are extended episodes, with uncensored footage not seen in the original episodes. In addition the DVD includes outtakes, and the music video “Hey It’s Fluffy!” performed by Grammy Award winning band Ozomatli.
The DVD will be in stores November 15th. It’s definitely a must have for any Gabriel Iglesias fans as it’s packed with new material from not only him, but also Martin Moreno, Rick Gutierrez, Alfred Robles, Shaun Lathem, Joey Diaz, Thea Vidale and Dillion Garcia. You can also purchase it online by going to the Official Gabriel Iglesias website (click here!).
