George Lopez 2022

George Lopez is an American comic, actor, and former television host. Born in 1961, to a family of Mexican migrant workers, Lopez found himself struggling through hard times in his home of Mission Hills, Los Angeles, California. Lopez’s parents both abandoned him — his father two months into his life and his mother after ten years — so he was raised by his maternal grandmother and step-grandfather, the former worked in a factory, the latter construction. After graduating from San Fernando High School in 1979, Lopez eventually found his way as a stand-up comedian. This led to a couple of movie roles in the early nineties, and finally, in 2000, Sandra Bullock discovered Lopez for TV.

Citing the lack of Hispanic representation on American television, Bullock sold executives on the sitcom George Lopez. The idea was to quell consistent complaints by Latino groups that they were underrepresented on television by producing a show centered around life in the Hispanic community, but which would venture beyond this topic also. Five seasons of the show aired between 2002 and 2007 on ABC, but it was not until the show was syndicated by Nick at Nite after cancelation that it became a hit. His self titled sitcom’s syndication by Nickelodeon is what ultimately made George Lopez a household name. After the show was canceled, Lopez starred in a number of other television shows, this included his stint as the host of Lopez Tonight between 2009-2011, but none were as successful as his original sit-com.
