Gabriel Iglesias's 15-year-old son doesn't talk to him anymore; he only makes noises. (2:43)

>> ALL THESE DIFFERENTCOUNTRIES, ALL THESE DIFFERENT

PLACES WE'VE BEEN GOING,AND, HONESTLY, YOU GUYS,

IT'S NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUTTHE LOVE AND THE SUPPORT

OF MY FAMILY.

THEY MADE THAT POSSIBLE,'CAUSE I CAN'T JUST GO TAKE OFF.

YOU KNOW, REALLY,SERIOUSLY, YOU KNOW?

YOU'RE JUST GOING TO LEAVE?

IT TAKES A STRONG WOMAN,FIRST OF ALL, TO PUT UP WITH ME.

IT'S NOT--"OH, YOU'RE GOING TO GO

TRAVEL THE WORLDWITH THIS CRAZY GUY NAMED MARTIN

WHO'S GOT TATTOOS AND ISSUES?

HAVE FUN."

UH-UH, IT'S NOT EASY, YOU GUYS.

LIKE I SAID, IT TAKES A LOT OFLOVE AND SUPPORT FROM MY FAMILY,

AND RIGHT NOW IT'S A CRAZY TIME,BECAUSE MY SON IS 15, MM-KAY?

SOME OF YOU KNOW I HAVE A SONFROM MY LAST SPECIAL.

I TALKED ABOUT HOW I BECAMEA DAD, AND, UM--

BECAUSE HE'S TECHNICALLYMY STEPSON,

AND THE ONLY REASON I'M SAYINGTHAT IS BECAUSE HE'S BEEN

IN MY LIFE FOR EIGHT YEARSAND HE'S 15.

SO I DON'T WANT YOU TO LOOK ATME AND THE MATH IS ALL WRONG,

AND YOU'RE LIKE, "HE'S GHETTO."

I'M NOT GHETTO.

I JUST HOOKED UP WITHA BEAUTIFUL WOMAN

WHO HAD A PRE-STARTED FAMILY,WHICH IS WHY THE MATH IS OFF.

BASICALLY, I TOOK OVER A LEASE,IS WHAT HAPPENED.

AND EVERYTHING'S BEEN GOINGGREAT, BUT WHEN HE TURNED 15,

IT STARTED CHANGING.

LIKE, HE NO LONGER TALKS TO ME,WHICH IS CRAZY.

NOT TO SAY THAT HE DOESN'TSEE ME AND ACKNOWLEDGE ME,

HE JUST DOESN'T TALK.

AND I THOUGHT IT WAS PERSONAL,AND HIS MOM IS LIKE, "NO, HE'S

GOING THROUGH A PHASE."

LIKE, HE DOESN'T SPEAK.

HE MAKES SOUNDS.

"FRANKIE, HOW'S YOUR DAY?"[sighs]

"DID YOU TAKE OUT THE TRASH?"[groans]

LIKE, WOW.

LIKE, THE ONLY PERSON HE TALKSTO IS AT THE OTHER END

OF HIS PHONE, 'CAUSE THAT'SALL HE DOES.

ALL DAY, JUST TEXT,TEXT, TEXT, TEXT.

AND IT'S FUNNY BECAUSE HE'SALWAYS LIKE THIS, TEXTING,

AND WHEN HE WALKS AROUND,HE TAKES LITTLE STEPS SO THAT

IN CASE HE BUMPS INTOSOMETHING, IT DOESN'T HURT.

LIKE, HE'S LIKE--LIKE,THE LITTLE VACUUM, YOU KNOW?

YOU--AND THEN, YOU KNOW--

AND THEN--[smacks and whooshes]

YOU KNOW?

AND WHEN HE'S TAKINGTHESE LITTLE STEPS,

HE MAKES THESE SOUNDS.

[grunting]AND HIS TONGUE COMES OUT

HALF WAY.

IT LOOKS FREAKY.

[grunting]LIKE HE'S TRYING

TO TEXT WITH IT.

[grunting]AND I ASKED HIS MOM,

"IS HE OKAY?""HE'S GOING THROUGH A PHASE."

AND I COULD TOTALLY UNDERSTANDMY SON STANDING IN THE CORNER

FOR 15 MINUTES AT A TIMEWITH HIS TONGUE OUT MAKING

NOISES IF HE WAS A SPECIALCIRCUMSTANCE,

BUT HE'S NOT, OKAY?

IF HE WAS, I'D HUG HIM AND LOVEHIM THE SAME, BUT HE'S NOT.

HE'S A STRAIGHT-"A" STUDENTIN HIS SCHOOL.

HE'S AT THE TOP OF THE LISTIN HIS CLASS AS ONE OF

THE SMARTEST KIDS.

AND IT'S--NO, NO, NO, DON'T!

DON'T CLAP!

DON'T CLAP! YOU KNOW WHY?

YOU KNOW WHY?

BECAUSE ON PAPER,IT SAYS HE'S A GENIUS.

BUT AT HOME--[grunting]

IT DOESN'T MATCH.
