Being in show business for 25 years is crazy. I had the opportunity to visit the places where I started, which was April 10, 1997. And I got to stand on the stage where I first went up to perform as a comedian and it felt great. And I say, I miss all that. That was... that was the best thing, that people were like, "Who are you?
Wow." Know? Or when I opened up to people and they said, "Man, why don't you have your own show?" And I'm like, "I don't know. I don't know why I don't have my own show." So to go from a backyard barbecue performance on a karaoke machine next to an empty pool and now to a


, I'm going to be very excited. I guarantee that will be something for me. It won't be just any show. It's going to have... You'll see. You will see it. I was like... Let me save all that for when I'm in that moment.
I'll do the... I did the mess and got a real job. I'm not sure exactly what's going to happen on the day of the show, you know, because usually at


shows, we pull up in the back and then I get off and then we go in. But this is not a stadium. This is a fucking stadium. It's huge. I'm pretty sure we'll have to pay for parking. That's a fact at Dodger Stadium. Well, I'm watching my stage being built and there's a lot of smoke. That's never a good thing when smoke is coming out of your set.
It's always different during the day. At night, I've been here for concerts with Paul McCartney, you know, I've been here for AC/DC, and it's a very different vibe at night. Right now it looks like a giant quinceañera with all these white chairs. I just... wonder if we could rent them out later. You know, cover part of the cost. Point out the sign. Cue the chihuahuas. Whatever the situation is to present myself, I am totally involved in it. I always want to make sure I get exactly what I want and don't get anything stupid. As you can see, we are having some problems with the dogs.
They always say in show business to never work with animals or children. See what happens. I planned something very special for the Dodger Stadium presentation. My first car was a 1968 Volkswagen Bus. It came in nine shades of primer and two or three different versions of gray. And it was just, I don't know. It was rebuilt with duct tape and prayer. That's what kept that car on the road. And who wouldn't want their first car back once you're, you know, in a better place? So when I was able to get my first car back, I fixed it like I wanted to when I was 17.
And after that, it was one of those, "Hey, maybe I'll get another one." And one became two, it became four, it became eight, it became now I think we're around 25. I always wanted to have my first car on stage. I think it's going to happen. It is very close. You'll never be 100% until it's done, but I know we'll try this time, so. In the end everything is going to be like a little dance, and that's how it should be. So so so. And then a car comes out and then people go crazy. Look, I'm trying to find the person furthest from me right now.
You are the closest person. I'm trying to find the furthest thing. The furthest person. Does it sound clear? How does it sound there? Scream so I can hear you. Yeah! Hm... It's now five o'clock. I leave you now. I'll be back when the sun sets. -Have a great show! -What's up man? -I love you! -Great love right here. Spongy! Spongy! Spongy! Spongy! Spongy! Spongy! Good designer.

There really are no words to describe it. It's just... it's surreal. Are you ready? I've been lucky enough to have two great friends with me on tour who have been there from the beginning. One is Martin, also known as "Martin!" and my friend Alfred Robles. And I'm excited to be able to share this experience with both of them because... You know, it's been an incredible journey. We did garages with this guy, living rooms, backyards, then we did clubs, and this guy ended up at Dodger Stadium, you know. And I'm trying not to get emotional here, but... what you have to sacrifice to get to that level, the blood, the sweat, the tears, the laughter and the cries.
And nothing compares to this moment. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Performing here meant a lot to me. I used to sneak in here to watch games with this fool here. And performing here two nights, sold out, is great, man. Gabriel, good job. Congratulations. All of Los Angeles loves you. I'm just looking at thousands and thousands of people who came to see our hometown hero make history. That is incredible. And it's just beautiful to see good people win. So keep winning, brother.

My children, man, they can live this through me and I can tell them and show them what a Latino did at Dodger Stadium. And it's It's just... it's inspiring. Yes, more than just our hot dogs outside. Do you feel Me? We did that. -He did that. -Yes sir. -So congratulations. -Yeah. I love you, fluff. In my house, while he was growing up, Speedy González was not seen in a negative light. In fact, he was the only form of representation we had growing up. It was him and the little bumblebee from The Simpsons. Representation is very important.
Growing up, there wasn't much representation. So every time you meet someone you're like, "Oh, wow, that's cool!" Or if you hear someone speaking Spanish or a word here and there, you say, "Oh!" You feel like, oh man, that was special. Paul Rodriguez was, you know, a big inspiration to me growing up, and I remember he had a show called aka Pablo. I mean, I remember he was a little kid, but he was like, "Wow!" I was in love with the fact that he goes, look at this guy. Like, like, wow, yeah. Just look, you know? And my mom said: "Just look.
Look." And I think the fact that there will be so many people watching someone do this and have a connection, maybe who knows, something might happen, someone might be inspired, someone might say, "You know what, why can't I?" people come up and say, "Hey, thanks. I'll take my kids." You know, "I want you to see this." And it's like, you know, wow, you realize how important it is. Yes, I wish my mom could see it. You know, that's what she says, wow, today she would have lost her mind to have been there. But, you know, I think it's cool to be able to do it.
Los Angeles, I love you. Thank you for 25 years. You are my Home. Thank you for the best night of my life. Never forget you. Thank you.
