Gabriel Iglesias Laughs Off Cyber Threat

2/9/2010 8:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Comedian Gabriel Iglesias -- a former finalist on "Last Comic Standing" -- had to call in extra security to his stand-up show in L.A. this weekend after receiving 2 threats on his safety.

The comic claims someone fired off an email and a voicemail warning the Fluffy Man to "be careful" while in town.

Gabriel instantly beefed up the security for his show -- and demanded that everyone who stepped into the theater had to be wanded down by officials.

We're told Gabriel joked about the situation during his performance.

Fortunately, nothing happened, but even if something did go down, TMZ has learned Erik Estrada -- a reserve officer in the Muncie Police Department -- was in the house that night.

Nobody messes with the Estrada.

I was at this show. It was really funny, but getting into the joint sucked. We got there an hour before the show started and the line was about 3 blocks long with everyone standing in the pouring rain. It took two hours to get inside with them wanding and patting everyone down. Who would want to hurt this guy. After every show he stays to talk and take pictures with fans until everyone has left. Estrada rules!

Gabriel Iglesias was NOT a former finalist on "Last Comic Standing," in fact he got thrown off the show for violating the rules. Dude kept breaking isolation to contact his girlfriend.
