George Lopez is a successful Mexican-American comedian and actor with his own late-night talk show on TBS. But his most outstanding characteristic is that he understands white people and their sensitivities. When white people get E. coli, the whole world fucking stops... I have E. coli. I couldnt go to pilates, because I had the squirts. Im so hot and Im depleted, he says, in imitation of a white person. Lopez bears a warning for whites, too: Talk shit about Mexican immigrants and they will take the produce they pick, rub it on their taints, and ship it to Taco Bell. (Hence, E. coli.) And he has a message for certain Latinas: stop overplucking your eyebrows. Lopez jokes most of the time about race and does it better than most comedians. Hes performing at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino (1 Seminole Way, Hollywood) to a sold-out show on Friday at 8 p.m. What joke do you think Lopez would make about white folks scalping? If you do happen to score tix, heres the venue info: Call 954-797-5531, or visit hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com if need be.
