George Lopez Speech Topics
After surviving a kidney transplant and a divorce, GEORGE LOPEZ recently found himself surrounded by a room full of childhood friends, all gathered to celebrate his birthday, and realized his greatest challenge had presented itself: turning 50. Already called one of The 25 Most Influential Hispanics in America by TIME magazine, George is now hitting the reset button on his expanding career and using his high profile to share the joys and challenges of growing old. From dating younger women to fighting the uphill battle of staying in shape, Lopez tells the unabashed, and often hilarious truth about aging as only he can, with style and humor. With over 1.5 million Twitter followers and 7.6 million Facebook fans, George Lopez has transcended into the elite level as a pop cultural icon and a pioneer in comedy; and with his first memoir already a The New York Times Bestseller, Lopez' follow-up, I'M NOT GONNA LIE (AND OTHER LIES YOU TELL WHEN YOU TURN 50) will be released in 2013.
Lopez has voiced the character Rafael in the animated blockbuster, Rio, along with Jamie Foxx, Anne Hathaway, and Jesse Eisenberg, "Grouchy Smurf" in The Smurfs, and "Carlos" in Marmaduke. Other recent film credits include the box-office hit Valentine's Day, directed by Garry Marshall; Beverly Hills Chihuahua; Swing Vote; Henry Poole Is Here; and Balls of Fury.
Clocking more than 200 television comedy, talk show and hosting appearances, including co-hosting the Emmy Awards and twice hosting the Latin Grammys, Lopez shows no signs of slowing down.
Lopez has received the Manny Mota Foundation Community Spirit Award and was named Honorary Mayor of Los Angeles for his extensive fundraising efforts benefitting earthquake victims in El Salvador and Guatemala. Other honors include an Imagen Vision Award, the Latino Spirit Award and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
In addition to his outside charity work, George established The Lopez Foundation to create positive, permanent change for underprivileged children and adults confronting challenges in education and health, as well as increasing community awareness about kidney disease, organ donation, and the military.
