Aside from stand up comedy, Lopez’s career encompasses television, film, and late-night television. He just recently completed a stand up comedy tour, “The Comedy Get Down,” with Eddie Griffin, D.L. Hughley, and Cedric the Entertainer. He also just recently wrapped shooting on the upcoming crime thriller “The Tax Collector” with Shia LaBeouf and Lana Parrilla.

Lopez’s next film is “El Chicano,” releasing on May 3rd alongside Raul Castillo, Aimee Garcia, and Emilio Rivera. He is also set to star 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.

For two seasons Lopez hosted “Lopez Tonight,” a late-night television talk show on TBS. This 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.

Lopez has been featured in three HBO specials, “The Wall” in August 2017, 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.

In 2004, his 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.”
