George Lopez returns to the intimate Celebrity Theatre for two very special engagements at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 26th and 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 27th. Tickets ($51, $69.50 and $96) go on sale at 10 a.m. on Monday, January 21 at Celebrity Theatre or online at www.celebritytheatre.com. To charge by phone, call 602-267-1600 ext.1.

The multi-talented entertainer has starred in his own hit sitcom, recorded Grammy-nominated comedy albums, scored a string of Hollywood hits, wrote a best-selling book, and became the first Hispanic American ever to host a late-night talk show. So what’s George Lopez doing now? He’s on tour in support of his third HBO solo special It’s Not Me, It’s You. Filmed at the famed Nokia Theater in Los Angeles (which Lopez has sold-out a record-breaking 24 times), the show features Lopez addressing the state of Latinos in the United States, marriage, parenting, the woes of aging, generational gaps and his visit to the White House.
Lopez is one of the top earning stand-up comics in the country, and his last HBO special Tall, Dark & Chicano was the network’s highest rated in five years. Last summer he was chosen to host FOX TV’s new dating show Take Me Out, where Lopez presides over 30 ladies looking for love.
Time Magazine named Lopez as one of the 25 Most Influential Hispanics in America, and the Harris Poll named him one of the Top Ten Favorite Television Personalities. For two seasons, he hosted Lopez Tonight, a late-night television talk show on TBS, which represented his 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. Lopez is also known for his acclaimed comedy concert on Showtime, Why You Crying? and his Grammy nominated albums: Team Leader and El Mas Chingon.
Doors open at 7 p.m. for both shows. Celebrity Theatre is conveniently located just four blocks south of the Loop 202, at 440 N. 32nd St., in Phoenix.
