Wednesday, May 9th 2018 by Oprah Flash

Get ready to have your funny bone tickled as Netflix has announced plans to breath life into three new comedies created by the all-time funny guy, Gabriel 'Fluffy' Iglesias.

The line-up will include a multi-cam comedy series and two stand-up comedy specials. Netflix hasn’t confirmed the release dates but production is underway.

The multi-cam series is named after its creator, Mr Iglesias, in which the comedian plays a good-natured teacher at the school that he once attended. Everyone has had that deputy headteacher who they just couldn’t get on with, in this case it’s Mr Iglesias' job to teach a group of gifted but misfit kids to reach their full potential. Along the way he save them from being ‘counseled out’ by the school bully, the Deputy Headteacher.

Three new comedy shows

Broken up into ten 30-minute episodes, the series is a Netflix Original Production with Gabriel Iglesias serving as executive producer with Kevin Hench (Cristela, Last Man Standing).

Fondly known as the Fluffyguy, Gabriel Iglesias, said: "When I was a kid, I wanted to be either a stand-up comedian or a teacher. Thanks to Netflix for supporting both of my career aspirations.”

The first of two stand-up comedy specials will be taped during Iglesias’ current world tour 'One Show Fits All' and the second on a future date. If you’re wondering, who is Gabriel Fluffy Iglesias, check out a snippet of one of his shows:
