Fun Facts About George Lopez: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) In 1999, Lopez hosted a major morning radio show for Clear Channel Communications in Los Angeles. He was the first Latino to have headlined the keystone morning radio slot on an English-language station in LA — the nation's top radio market.

2) In 2000, after several years of performing stand-up comedy, Lopez was approached by actress Sandra Bullock for Lopez to produce and star in a comedy. Bullock was concerned about the lack of Hispanic-oriented sitcoms on American television and pushed to get a sitcom on television that starred Hispanics without being exclusively about the Hispanic American community.

3) Lopez earned praise for his performance in the HBO Films drama, Real Women Have Curves, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and received the 2002 Audience Award.

The Playboy Jazz Festival is Saturday and Sunday at The Hollywood Bowl.

Also, George Lopez returns to Anaheim for one night only! Saturday, June 21 at the Honda Center.
