While on the set of the movie "Magic Mike," Gabriel Iglesias gives it all he's got. (2:23)

THEY TAKE ME ONTO THE SET.

AND THE MAJORITY OF THE SHOTSIN THE MOVIE MAGIC MIKE ARE SHOT

INSIDE OF A STRIP CLUB, OKAY?

IT'S ON A STAGE, AND I'M VERYCOMFORTABLE UP HERE.

BUT THE COOL PART FOR ME IS,I'M ON THE SIDE OF THE STAGE

INSIDE OF A DJ BOOTH, SO IDON'T HAVE ANY WORRIES.

THE DIRECTOR COMES UP TO ME,AND HE SAYS, "LISTEN, GABE,

YOU GOT ALL YOUR SPEAKING ROLESIN THE FILM, BUT IN ADDITION

TO THAT, YOU ARE THE KEYBACKGROUND IN EVERY SHOT

WHEN IT COMES TO THE DANCERS."

HE GOES, "THE GUY ON STAGEIS THE EYE CANDY,

BUT YOU'RE THE GUY THAT PROVIDESTHE EAR CANDY, AND YOU NEED TO

EXPRESS YOURSELF AND GIVE MEENERGY.

CAN YOU DO THAT?""YES, SIR.

LET'S DO THIS."

NEXT THING I KNOW...

"ALL RIGHT, EVERYBODY.

HERE WE GO.

QUIET ON THE SET.

AND ACTION."

ALL OF A SUDDEN, THE DANCING.

[imitating pulsating club music]DANCER COMES OUT.

CAMERA STARTS PANNING JUST LIKETHAT ONE, RIGHT?

AND ALL OF A SUDDEN, I'M INMY DJ BOOTH, AND I START DJ'ING

IT UP, RIGHT?

[laughs]UH. UH. UH.

"CUT!"THE DIRECTOR COMES OUT FROM

BEHIND THE CAMERA, CROSSES THESTAGE, AND GETS IN MY FACE.

"THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT.

GIVE ME MORE."

I'M LIKE, "OKAY."

"EVERYBODY, HERE WE GO.

QUIET ON THE SET.

AND ACTION."

[imitating pulsating club music]AND I TAKE OFF.

[imitating pulsating club music]AND I TAKE OFF.

THE MOVIE COMES OUT.

I ATTEND THE SCREENING OF THEFILM WITH MY GIRLFRIEND

AT WARNER BROS. STUDIOS.

WE'RE SITTING THERE, AND WE'REWAITING FOR THAT PART TO COME

UP, AND I TELL HER, "BABY,IT'S COMING.

IT'S COMING.

WATCH."

SURE ENOUGH, THE CAMERA STARTSPANNING, AND YOU SEE THE DANCER.

YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE HIS HEAD.

ALL YOU SEE IS HIS BODY ALLFREAKING RIPPED AND MOVING.

AND IN THE BACKGROUND, IN THEDJ BOOTH, YOU CANNOT SEE

ANY OF THE DJ EQUIPMENTBECAUSE IT'S ALL BELOW THE LINE

OF THE CAMERA.

ALL YOU SEE IN THE BACKGROUNDIS SOME CHUBBY PERVERT IN A BOX

HAVING THE TIME OF HIS LIFE.

AND MY GIRLFRIEND'S LIKE,"OH, YOU'RE GAY."

"I GUESS SO."
