Lopez’s multifaceted career encompasses television, film, standup comedy and late-night television. Lopez is currently on his solo standup comedy tour, The Wall World Tour, as well as a group tour, The Comedy Get Down, starring himself, Eddie Griffin, D.L. Hughley & Cedric ‘The Entertainer’. The four The Comedy Get Down comedians also recently wrapped a BET scripted comedy series based on their tour. Lopez also stars in A&E’s “Very Superstitious With George Lopez” that began airing in April.

He also recently starred in "Lopez" on TV Land. Produced by Lopez, the series explored how he struggled between his two worlds and crises that are often of his own making. The half-hour single-camera serialized comedy aired for two seasons.

Also for two seasons, Lopez hosted "Lopez Tonight," a late-night television talk show on TBS. This represented his 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. "George Lopez" 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.

In 2015, Lopez was seen in the Lionsgate inspirational drama, "Spare Parts." Produced by Lopez, the film is based on a true story about four undocumented Mexican-American teenagers from Phoenix who team up to build an underwater robot that wins the national robotics competition. In 2014, Lopez starred in the multi-camera ensemble comedy "Saint George" on FX, which he co-created.

Lopez debuted his third solo stand-up special It’s Not Me, It’s You in 2012 on HBO. He also voiced animated characters in a string of animated blockbuster films including Zook in "Gnome Alone;" Rafael in "Rio" and "Rio 2" along with Jamie Foxx, Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg; Thurman in "Escape from Planet Earth" opposite Jane Lynch and Sofia Vergara; Grouchy Smurf in "The Smurfs 1 and 2"; and "The Beverly Hills Chihuahua 1, 2, and 3." His most recent film credits include the box-office hit "Valentine's Day" directed by Garry Marshall, "Swing Vote," "Henry Poole Is Here" and "Balls of Fury."

Lopez has been featured in three HBO specials, "The Wall" in August 2017, GRAMMY-nominated Best Comedy Album "Tall, Dark and Chicano" in 2009 and "America's Mexican" in 2007. Lopez also performed as part of HBO and TBS's "Comic Relief 2006." His acclaimed comedy concert, "Why You Crying" debuted on Showtime in 2004. He released his third standup CD, "El Mas Chingon," in 2006, which also earned him a GRAMMY nomination in the category of Best Comedy Album. In 2004, he was nominated for a GRAMMY in the same category for his CD "Team Leader."

In May 2004, Lopez’s autobiography, "Why You Crying?," entered The New York Times Bestsellers List top 20. The book was co-written by Emmy-winning writer and sportscaster Armen Keteyian. Lopez released his second memoir, "I’m Not Gonna Lie And Other Lies You Tell When You Turn 50", in 2013 where he tells the unabashed and hilarious truth about aging – as only he can. Lopez was also the focus of the award-winning documentary "Brown is the New Green: George Lopez and the American Dream."

In 2006, Lopez received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition, Time named him one of the 25 Most Influential Hispanics in America, and the Harris Poll named him one of the Top Ten Favorite Television Personalities.
