Our Favorite Stories In Comedy - An Interview With George Lopez
originally published: 01/13/2022
New Jersey Stage published its 25,000th story in December 2021. As the site approached the milestone, we posed the question on social media as how we should celebrate. One response was to highlight our favorite stories from over the years. We liked this idea, but could not narrow things down to just 25 favorites so we will present a favorite each day from different genres. Today features a story about comedy. It's when we interviewed George Lopez about the second year of his television show, Lopez.
The interview was published on June 20, 2016 and is available here. In the interview, we learn whether or not the show is based on his real life or solely a work of fiction, how his family and friends felt about the first season of the show, creating such a show in the era of Donald Trump, and his stand-up career.
