COMEDIAN GEORGE LOPEZ BRINGS HIS TOUR TO TACOMA

Pantages Theater, Friday, June 14, 2024 | 7.30pm

 

TACOMA, Wash. – Comedic legend George Lopez will bring newest stand-up tour, ALLLRIIIIGHHTTT!, to Tacoma’s Pantages Theater on Friday, June 14, proudly presented by Tacoma City Theaters.

 

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 currently stars in his multi-camera comedy series for NBC, Lopez vs. Lopez, which features his real-life daughter, Mayan Lopez. The family sitcom follows George and Mayan in a fictionalized version of their real-life father-daughter relationship, exploring dysfunction, reconnection, and all the pain and joy in between.

Lopez can be seen in Snoop Dogg’s Amazon MGM sports comedy, The Underdoggs, and in the independent holiday comedy How the Gringo Stole Christmas, directed by Angel Gracia. Lopez joined the DC Extended Universe last summer, starring in the Warner Bros. Latin superhero film Blue Beetle. Directed by Angel Manuel Soto and featuring a predominantly Latino cast, the film follows its first-ever Mexican American teenager turned superhero.

 

Lopez has 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

 

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 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.
