Review by Joseph Timmons, Xombiewoof Magazine
As a comedic entertainer and performer, few men have enjoyed the notoriety and long endured public appreciation as George Lopez, a truly talented and gifted man of the stage and screen who has had hit after hit, his own television show and is a beloved voice actor from many children’s shows and movies. George Lopez has seen and done it all, a personality that is the voice of the people, saying what we would love to say and doing on stage what we only dream of doing.
George has done it again with his most recent offering “It’s Not Me, It’s You”, recorded during his most recent live performance special on HBO and out on September 25th of 2012 on Comedy Central Records. George takes no prisoners in his verbal assault on the wrongs of the world, shedding light and mirth on the day to day realities of keeping it real in this country, dealing with bigotry and above all, being proud to be a hard working Latino, recognizing the achievements and accomplishments of a people he is proud to be a part of.
George Lopez speaks to us as his friends and family, frank and honest, pointing out to us what makes him “tick” and what makes him mad, proving he is still raw and powerful in his comedy, but not just spouting profanities and making it up as he goes along, keeping it real. George talks to us about everything from his youth to today, addressing his heritage and how he views the world. George takes aim at people and politics, the good, the bad and the truly ugly. George, in his trademark fashion makes light of the country’s political issues yet discusses real issues with his audience, working the crowd and with lightning fast reflexes, makes each joke hit home, time after time, never missing.
This live album is great in its content and hits home on many levels; it is, as I said before, “Raw and Real”, very ethnic on many levels but not exclusive. George Lopez involves everyone who listens as part of his world, rich and diverse, like the world he is part of.
