Demand was so high that Lopez added additional shows to his stop in San Antonio.
Not just a stalwart on the comedy scene, George Lopez has been an icon in the Latinx community for two decades. He is arguably best known for his accurately named sitcom, George Lopez
, but he’s also been at least on the periphery of TV almost constantly, including as a talk show host and an NFL commentator.
A recent announcement confirmed he’ll have yet another a new series Lopez vs. Lopez
, this one helmed by the producer of The Conners
. Lopez also made the jump to the big screen through roles in the Beverly Hills Chihuahua
series and The Adventures of Shark Girl and Lava Boy 3-D
But, at the end of the day, Lopez’s essence is comedy, and the fact that extra shows had to be added to accommodate demand for his upcoming San Antonio appearance is a testament to his enduring appeal.
After being raised by his grandparents, he started performing standup in the late ’90s, partly drawing on his experiences growing up Latino. Once he became a circuit regular, he was approached by Sandra Bullock about TV, which led to his eponymous series.
The rest is, as they say, history.
