Funny man George Lopez has added a second performance to his stop at the McAllen Civic Auditorium this weekend.
Originally only scheduled for Friday, March 22, a second show has been added for Saturday. Both shows start at 8 p.m.
Always a popular performer on his visits to the Rio Grande Valley, Lopez is a multi-talented entertainer whose career encompasses television, film, standup comedy and late-night television.
For two seasons, Lopez hosted Lopez Tonight, a late-night television talk show on TBS, which represented Lopez’s return to series television after co-creating, writing, producing and starring in Warner Bros. Television’s groundbreaking hit sitcom George Lopez, which ran for six seasons on ABC.
That show remains a hit with viewers in syndication on both broadcast stations and cable’s Nick at Nite, ranking as one of the top-rated shows on the network and among the top five comedies and top 20 weekly programs in syndication.
Lopez is one of only four off-net comedies to post weekly ratings gains among households from the 2007–08 to 2008–09 season.
The comedian’s show is billed as “intended for mature audiences.” Tickets are $40 and $60. Tickets for the second show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the McAllen Convention Center box office. Call 956-681-3804 for more information.
