Gabriel Iglesias is attempting to find a travel loophole; essentially eating all a town has to offer and then finding a way to break even, caloricly speaking of course.
That is what we have gleaned from what seems to be one part reality comedy show and one part classic travel and food programming.
It’s called “Fluffy Breaks Even,” and it premieres at 10 p.m. ET tonight on Fuse. The network describes it as such: “Get ready for a comedy tour unlike any other, as five of the country's funniest stand-up comedians hit the road for a journey of food, fans and intense workouts in Fuse's new series.”
Basically, the stand-up comedian is getting the most out of the towns he visits during his comedy tour.
He mines Twitter to find the best places to eat, and from there finds locations where he and his fellow comics can work it all off.
The Los Angeles Times’ Tre’Vell Anderson spoke to Iglesias who explained, “I love shows like ‘Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives’ or 'Man v. Food’ where they get to go eat. They get to go eat. They don't have to tell jokes or nothing. I said to myself, ‘I want that gig.’”
Anderson reports that the workouts will be just as extreme as the dining experiences. Iglesias, a self-proclaimed "fluffy" person, has aims on slightly better living.
The LA Times reports the comedian has lost over 100 pounds, which his fans might notice immediately.
While devouring barbecue isn’t exactly the healthiest of diets, Iglesias is putting the work in to at the very least flirt with breaking even.
He continues to Anderson, “I don’t want the fans to think, ‘Oh he’s messing around. He eats like he's serious, but he doesn’t take that workout like it’s serious.”
The food and the workouts are serious, but the rest seems to be straight comedy.
While myriad networks are filled with like programming, it’s easy to see Iglesias carving out his own niche with hilarity and travel locations for which people crave.
