OMG Hi! Com­e­dy Tour! George Lopez’s mul­ti-faceted career encom­pass­es tele­vi­sion, film, standup com­e­dy, and late-night tele­vi­sion. Lopez can be seen in his Net­flix orig­i­nal com­e­dy spe­cial We’ll Do It For Half which pre­miered glob­al­ly over the sum­mer. Last year Lopez was on tour nation­wide for his stand-up com­e­dy The Wall World. He also com­plet­ed his tour for The Com­e­dy Get Down, along with Eddie Grif­fin, D.L. Hugh­ley, and Cedric the Enter­tain­er. The come­di­ans also debuted their BET script­ed com­e­dy series based on the tour. Lopez has been fea­tured in four HBO spe­cials, The Wall in August 2017, It’s Not Me, It’s You in 2012, GRAM­MY nom­i­nat­ed Best Com­e­dy Album Tall, Dark and Chi­cano in 2009, and America’s Mex­i­can in 2007. Lopez also per­formed as part of HBO and TBS’s Com­ic Relief 2006. His acclaimed com­e­dy con­cert, Why You Cry­ing?, debuted on Show­time in 2004. He released his third standup CD, El Mas Chin­gon, in 2006, which also earned Lopez a GRAM­MY nom­i­na­tion in the cat­e­go­ry of Best Com­e­dy Album. In 2004, he was nom­i­nat­ed for a GRAM­MY in the same cat­e­go­ry for his CD Team Leader. He also starred in Lopez on TV Land. Pro­duced by Lopez, the series explored how he strug­gled between his two worlds and crises that are often of his own mak­ing. The half hour sin­gle cam­era seri­al­ized com­e­dy aired for two sea­sons. Lopez Tonight, a late-night tele­vi­sion talk show on TBS, also ran for two sea­sons. It rep­re­sent­ed Lopez’s return to series tele­vi­sion after co-cre­at­ing, writ­ing, pro­duc­ing, and star­ring in Warn­er Bros. Television’s ground­break­ing hit sit­com George Lopez, which ran for six sea­sons on ABC. George Lopez remains a hit with view­ers in syn­di­ca­tion on both broad­cast sta­tions and cable’s Nick at Nite, rank­ing as one of the top-rat­ed shows on the net­work and among the top five come­dies and top 20 week­ly pro­grams in syn­di­ca­tion. In film, he was last seen in the crime thriller The Tax Col­lec­tor with Shia LaBeouf and Lana Par­ril­la. David Ayer wrote the screen­play and direct­ed the film. He will be next seen in Walk­ing with Herb oppo­site Edward James Olmos and Mary McDon­nell. The faith-based film is inspired by Joe S. Bullock’s nov­el of the same name. Lopez starred in El Chi­cano along­side Raúl Castil­lo, Aimee Gar­cia, and Emilio Rivera. The film billed as the first Latin super­hero movie, pre­miered at the Los Ange­les Film Fes­ti­val in 2018. In 2015, Lopez was seen in the Lion­s­gate inspi­ra­tional dra­ma, Spare Parts. Pro­duced by Lopez, the film is based on a true sto­ry about four undoc­u­ment­ed Mex­i­can-Amer­i­can teenagers from Phoenix who team up to build an under­wa­ter robot that wins the nation­al robot­ics com­pe­ti­tion. In 2014, Lopez starred in the mul­ti-cam­era ensem­ble com­e­dy Saint George on FX, which he co-cre­at­ed. Lopez also voiced ani­mat­ed char­ac­ters in a string of ani­mat­ed block­buster films includ­ing Zook in Gnome Alone, Rafael in Rio and Rio 2 along with Jamie Foxx, Anne Hath­away and Jesse Eisen­berg, Thur­man in Escape from Plan­et Earth oppo­site Jane Lynch and Sofia Ver­gara, Grouchy Smurf in The Smurfs 1 and 2, and The Bev­er­ly Hills Chi­huahua 1, 2, and 3. His film cred­its also include the box-office hit Valentine’s Day direct­ed by Gar­ry Mar­shall, Riv­er Runs Red, Swing Vote, Hen­ry Poole Is Here and Balls of Fury. In May 2004, Lopez’s auto­bi­og­ra­phy, Why You Cry­ing?, entered The New York Times Best­sellers List top 20. The book was co-writ­ten by Emmy win­ning writer and sports­cast­er Armen Keteyian. Lopez released his sec­ond mem­oir, I’m Not Gonna Lie And Oth­er Lies You Tell When You Turn 50, in 2013 where he tells the unabashed and hilar­i­ous truth about aging – as only he can. Lopez was also the focus of the award-win­ning doc­u­men­tary Brown is the New Green: George Lopez and the Amer­i­can Dream. In 2006, Lopez received a star on the Hol­ly­wood Walk of Fame. In addi­tion, Time named him one of the 25 Most Influ­en­tial His­pan­ics in Amer­i­ca and the Har­ris Poll named him one of the Top Ten Favorite Tele­vi­sion Personalities.
