Service members, families and friends gathered May 10 to enjoy a night of music and comedy headlined by comedian Gabriel Iglesias at Ward Field at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
The event, which offered free admission to military personnel and their families, opened with a musical performance from the Air Force band High Flight.
“I think it’s really cool that Gabriel Iglesias would come out here and do this for the service members,” said Electronic Technician 3rd Class Corey Nettles, who attended the show and is a devout Gabriel Iglesias fan. “It’s good for the morale of everybody on base, and their families and children and everybody out here seem to be having a good time.”
Prior to Iglesias taking the stage, two opening comedians warmed up the crowd for Iglesias, also known as “Fluffy.”
“It’s really nice to come and enjoy an event like this for free and be able to get our minds off work and not really have to go out and spend money,” said Hospitalman Raymond Molina, one of Iglesias’ biggest fans.
