George Lopez’s multi-faceted career encompasses television, film, standup comedy and late-night television. For two seasons, Lopez hosted “Lopez Tonight,” a late-night television talk show on TBS, which 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. This summer, Lopez returns with the #ThatsTrue Comedy Tour, which will make a stop at the Reno Ballroom on Saturday, July 23.
The show 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 August 2009, Lopez filmed his second HBO Comedy Special, “Tall, Dark and Chicano,” which was nominated for a GRAMMY in the category of Best Comedy Album. 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. Prior to that, in 2004, he was nominated for a GRAMMY in the same category for his CD “Team Leader.” Lopez also was the focus of the award-winning documentary “Brown is the New Green: George Lopez and the American Dream.”
