Gabriel Iglesias: What's in a stand-up special name?

Comedian Gabriel Iglesias had his third Comedy Central stand-up special last night, titled “I’m Not Fat…I’m Fluffy.” It’s part of his trademark bit about “levels of fatness.”

I can’t help but notice: What is up with the names of stand-up specials? Recent installments include: “Greg Behrendt: That Guy From That Thing,” “Jon Reep: Metro Jethro,” “Nick Swardson: Seriously, Who Farted?”, which is incredibly classy. There are ones that have “funny” in the actual title – “John Heffron: Middle Class Funny,” “Adam Ferrara: Funny as Hell” – and ones that rely on the beloved comedy school of pun-making: “Greg Giraldo: Midlife Vices,” “Christopher Titus: Love is Evol,” “Bert Kreischer: Comfortably Dumb,” and “Ralphie May: Austin-Tatious.” And these are just from the last year and change. And just from Comedy Central. The well, she is far from dry.

Did you watch Iglesias last night, PopWatchers? And can you top the special names I dug up?
