Co­me­dian Ge­orge Lopez adds a 2nd Fresno show

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Stay Connected -

Ge­orge Lopez has added a sec­ond show to his Fresno stop in May.

In Fe­bru­ary, the TV and movie star/stand-up co­me­dian an­nounced he would per­form May 25 at the Saroyan The­atre on his com­edy tour, called the Wall. That first show is listed as sold out, al­though there ap­pears to be a hand­ful of tickets left on Tick­et­mas­ter.

To al­le­vi­ate any over­flow in in­ter­est, a sec­ond late show has been added for 10:30 p.m. Tickets for the late show are $45-$55 (plus ser­vice fees) and went on sale Fri­day on­line at Tick­et­mas­ or by phone at 800-745-3000.

The ti­tle of the show seems pur­pose­fully cho­sen to re­flect the co­me­dian’s take on the cur­rent po­lit­i­cal cli­mate, es­pe­cially as it re­lates to race.

Ear­lier this week, Lopez pre­sented at the Sum­mit on Race in Amer­ica and he has been on record (as re­cently as Thurs­day) urg­ing Lati­nos to speak out on im­mi­gra­tion po­lices.
