Hard Rock Standup

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 couldn’t go to pilates, because I had the squirts. I’m so hot and I’m 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. He’s 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, here’s the venue info: Call 954-797-5531, or visit hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com if need be.
