Show of the week » Gabriel Iglesias touts that "I’m not fat. … I’m fluffy." The 37-year-old stand-up comic is also big, or at least big enough to bring his "Stand-Up Revolution" tour to the Maverik Center. He’s the first of several comedians playing arena shows in Utah in the coming months, with George Lopez (Dec. 14 in the Maverik Center) and Bryan Regan (now playing two shows, Feb. 28 and March 1, in EnergySolutions Arena) following. Iglesias’ performances have been featured on best-selling DVDs and in Comedy Central specials — and he landed a role (with his clothes on) in "Magic Mike," because star Channing Tatum is one of his biggest fans.
