Variety is reporting that Gabriel Iglesias will helm a new Netflix special later this year. The show titled “The Comedy Event” will be Iglesias’s third with the streamer where he also has a Netflix original sitcom. The funnyman sounds like he is ready to get back into action.
“This is the longest time I’ve been away from my fans in decades. I’m extremely grateful to be able to come out of forced retirement. Since I realized how much I miss and need all my fans around the world. I’m waxed and vaxed, ready to return to the stage,” Iglesias said in a statement.
