George Lopez’s Third HBO Special Out on DVD8 Feb, 2013 By: Angelique Flores
Comedian George Lopez is touring the country with his latest stand-up show. My brother caught him at the Terrace Theater in Long Beach, Calif., for what he said was a pretty amazing set.
But if you’re like me and missed it, you can still get your fix of G.Lo on DVD, thanks to HBO Home Entertainment. This recently released DVD contains the It’s Not Me, It’s You show taped at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. The popular comedian has sold out this venue 24 times, which is a record for Nokia. Órale, George!
In It’s Not Me, It’s You, Lopez addresses everything from raising kids and visiting the White House to the differences between Mexicans and white people and so much more.
His comedy seems to be getting a little more raw, and even raunchy, each time I see his shows, but the veteran comic still lives up to his reputation for making people laugh.
This is Lopez’s third HBO special, and the DVD includes a behind-the-scenes featurette, “The Road to It’s Not Me, It’s You,” which looks at Lopez and the tour. This I found pretty insightful for sharing a little more about Lopez, the comedian who opened for him during the tour — Bryan Kellen — as well as the tireless work it takes to be as successful as Lopez is.
If you’re a fan of George Lopez, this disc is not to be missed.
