Production[edit]

As the show's started becoming more popular and more popular, Comedy Central decided to let Gabriel and his friends to perform on television, For each season the show will have a different setting for example, the first season took place on Phoenix, Arizona. Iglesias' friend Martin Moreno appears as his sidekick similar to Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter's relationship. Gabriel also got Ozomatli to serve as the house band and got to write the show's theme song. Gabriel wanted his show to be similar to John Oliver's New York Stand-Up Show but rather than having comedians people already knew, he wanted to introduce his lesser known friends who are comedians.
