George Lopez’s illustrious and multi-faceted career encompasses television, film, stand-up comedy, and late-night television. Lopez has broken ground for Latino comics by embracing his ethnicity, confronting racial stereotypes, and fighting for his community on and off the stage. Lopez stars in his multi-camera comedy series for NBC, Lopez vs Lopez, featuring his real-life daughter, Mayan Lopez. Later this year, Lopez will be starring in the independent holiday comedy, How the Gringo Stole Christmas, directed by Angel Gracia. Lopez joined the DC Extended Universe this summer, starring in the Warner Bros. Latin superhero film, Blue Beetle. Lopez also will release the third installment of his middle-grade novel series, Chupacarter and the Screaming Sombrero in March.
Lopez has had four HBO specials: The Wall (2017), It’s Not Me, It’s You (2012), Tall, Dark and Chicano (2009), which was nominated for a Best Comedy Album Grammy Award®, and America’s Mexican (2007). His acclaimed comedy concert, Why You Crying? debuted on Showtime in 2004. He released his third stand-up CD, El Mas Chingon, in 2006, earning another Grammy nomination. In 2004, he was nominated for his first Grammy in the same category for Team Leader.
On television, Lopez produced and starred in Lopez, co-created and starred in Saint George for FX, and hosted TBS’ inaugural late night talk show, Lopez Tonight.  Television’s groundbreaking hit sitcom George Lopez ran for six seasons on ABC and remains a hit with viewers. Lopez’s extensive film credits include Walking with Herb, the modern-day Western No Man’s Land, The Tax Collector, El Chicano, Valentine’s Day, The Spy Next Door, and The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl. He starred in and produced the inspirational drama, Spare Parts.
An icon and advocate for Latino representation, Lopez was the focus of the award-winning documentary Brown is the New Green: George Lopez and the American Dream, as he struggles to stand for Latinos in a manner true to their realities and aspirations. In May 2004, Lopez’s autobiography, Why You Crying?, entered The New York Times Bestseller Top 20 List. He released his second memoir in 2013, I’m Not Gonna Lie and Other Lies You Tell When You Turn 50.  In 2005, 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. The following year, Lopez received a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
