Gabriel Iglesias is blowing a Fuse… and blowing up the cable channel’s lineup.
Fuse is relaunching on September 30 with an expanded partnership with the 39-year-old Mexican American comedian, actor, writer and producer.
Additionally, Fuse will introduce a new logo and brand with the network’s identity described as a “line-up of sexy, edgy, and relevant original music, comedy, culture and lifestyle programming, featuring a lot of Iglesias.
Iglesias’ projects with Fuse include the world television premiere of Iglesias’ The Fluffy Movie. The film captures the worldwide comic phenomenon in never-before-seen footage from his sold-out “Unity Through Laughter” tour that spanned over 20 countries and more than 400 cities. It will premieres on Wednesday, September 30 at 8:30 pm ET/PT.
Meanwhile, the first original show developed as part of a multi-year partnership with Iglesias, Fluffy Breaks Even, makes its debut on October 1 at 10:00 pm. The unscripted series will feature Iglesias along with his eccentric tour mates and fellow comedians Martin Moreno and Rick Gutierrez as they travel to new cities, meet fans and attempt the impossible – balancing big meals with big workouts!
The series explores the comedy of consequences in each city on the world comedy tour when members of Fluffy’s crew want to eat a high calorie meal, they’re going to have to work to “break even” the next day by burning those calories learning that fun comes with a price … exercise.
Fuse’s lineup also includes the original special Gabriel Iglesias Presents: The Gentleman Jerry Rocha.

Iglesias once again presents one of the most exciting voices in stand-up today in The Gentleman Jerry Rocha. Rocha’s hilarious perspective on everything from dating younger women to watching older movies will have you laughing and nodding along in approval to this anything but gentle, don’t miss, comedy event. It premieres Saturday, October 17 at 10:00 pm. ET/PT.
The network also is presenting the comedian’s upcoming tour, Fuse TV Presents Gabriel Iglesias #FluffyBreaksEven, which kicks off September 24 in Loveland, CO.
