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 8th annual George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic takes place this Monday, May 4th at the Lakeside Country Club in Toluca Lake.

George is playing the Orpheum Theatre Friday and Sunday night, showtime is at 8:00pm.

'Spare Parts' comes out on DVD and Blu Ray next Tuesday, May 5th.
