Comedian, actor and television personality George Lopez will perform in Paso Robles in the spring.
Lopez, who often courts controversy with his racially and politically charged humor, will bring his stand-up show to Vina Robles Amphitheatre on May 12.
In addition to starring in the hit ABC sitcom “George Lopez,” the Mexican-American entertainer hosted the late-night talk show “Lopez Tonight” on TBS and played the title character in “Saint George” on FX. He recently starred as a fictionalized version of himself in TV Land’s “Lopez.”
Lopez’s other screen credits include “Beverly Hills Chihuahua,” the “Rio” animated movies and “The Smurfs” franchise.
The entertainer, who has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, recently released his fourth comedy special, 2017’s “George Lopez: The Wall, Live from Washington, D.C.”
Lopez isn’t the only high-profile comedian slated to perform in Paso Robles in coming months.
Longtime “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno will bring his stand-up comedy act to Vina Robles Amphitheatre in June. “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah will perform at the venue for the second time in July, following a sold-out show in 2017.
Tickets for Lopez’s May 12 show cost $42 to $62, and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday via Ticketmaster.com.
