Gabriel Iglesias lived in Long Beach for most of his formative years. After matriculating, he started his career as a comedian while still working at a ‘phone company. He decided that comedy was something that he wanted to do in his life as a full-time job, and so quit his regular job, despite his relatives advising against it. His first appearance on television was in 2000 in the Nickelodeon TV comedy series “All That”, in which he played a variety of characters during his first year, and which established his net worth.

Then In 2006 he was one of the contestants in the reality television show “Last Comic Standing”, managing to progress as one of the eight comedians participating, although later disqualified. In 2011, “Comedy Central” released Gabriel’s stand-up comedy series entitled “Gabriel Iglesias Presents Stand Up Revolution”, which received positive reviews from the public and comedy enthusiasts, so adding considerably to his net worth.

Gabriel’s work as a voice actor became an important part of his career too, and so boosted his net worth.

While this is probably not related to his involvement in a previously mentioned series, in 2012 he was also invited to guest star in an episode of the popular YouTube series “Epic Meal Time”, and has also been featured in another popular YouTube series, “Equals Three”, several times. Gabriel is also known for working as a voice actor in feature movies –  he became the voice of Ned and Zed in Walt Disney Pictures animated movie “Planes” in 2013, and the following year he voiced the character Jimmy in the animated comedy “The Nut Job”.
