Lopez has 'got this!' thing that makes people laugh
The catchphrase of comedian George Lopez, "I can never do nuthin'!" (also the name of his tour), certainly does not describe his life and career; he has done a lot.
Clean bill of health: Since a kidney donation from soon-to-be-ex-wife Ann (an amicable break according to George Lopez's camp) in 2005, Lopez has become an advocate for community awareness of kidney disease and organ donation through the Ann and George Lopez Foundation.
Successful stand-up career: Lopez is one of the top five highest grossing comedians in the world, taking the public stage in the late '90s with humorous outtakes on ethnicity (mostly his Mexican-American upbringing).
Actor extraordinaire: From movies to TV comedy specials and "George Lopez," the TV sitcom he co-created, produced and starred in, Lopez continues to bring his style of comedy to mainstream audiences.
Late-night talk show host duties: "Lopez Tonight" on TBS has been well-received in its first season; guests have included Shakira, Jim Belushi, Marc Anthony, Queen Latifah, Floyd Mayweather and Charlie Sheen.
Maybe he should stick with his other catchphrase — "I got this!" — because he has definitely taken hold of a piece of the entertainment pie.
The "George Lopez: Tall, Dark & Chicano" tour will showcase the funnyman's brand of stand-up comedy.
Friday's concert will offer special VIP tickets to raise funds to benefit the Ann & George Lopez Foundation to sponsor Children's Kidney Camp and organ donation. Tickets are $200 and include premium show seating, backstage pass with refreshments and a meet-and-greet with Lopez, host of late-night's "Lopez Tonight" on TBS, at an after-party.
