George Wallace will insult your mother and still get laughs
BROOKS, Calif. – Comedian George Wallace, most recognized for his "yo mama" and "I be thinkin" jokes, incorporates his own special brand of audience participation in his act. At every show, George selects a few people out of the crowd to go one on one with him in the legendary art of mother insults – and like the true professional entertainer that he is – always manages to end up the victor in these verbal exchanges. Audiences don’t mind losing too much, though, as Wallace shows his gratitude to them for playing along by signing autographs and taking photos after every show.
The cerebral everyman stand up will bring his audience friendly act to Cache Creek Casino Resort on Jan. 10 at 8 p.m., and fans are sure to hear a few of his famous “yo mamas” when he takes the stage in the intimate Club 88.
Wallace’s appeal has been wide in the entertainment industry, garnering him an American Comedy Award for "Best Stand Up Comedian" after being continually nominated four years in a row. Wallace’s television credits include HBO’s “One Night Stand,” the Hallmark movie “Santa Jr.,” as well as appearances on shows such as “Seinfeld,” “Moesha,” “The Tonight Show,” “Oprah,” “Hollywood Squares,” “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Rosie O'Donnell,” “Live with Regis,” and “Politically Incorrect.”
Other acting credits include “In The Heat of the Night,” “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” and “Arliss.” Wallace also appeared in numerous films including “Comedian,” “Little Nicky,” “A Rage in Harlem,” “Punchline,” “Postcards from the Edge,” “Batman Forever” and “Ladykillers.”
No stranger to casino performances, Las Vegas loves their resident comedic headliner. In 2004, George appeared as the headlining star of his own show at The Flamingo Hotel in Vegas for a 30 day run. Sin City showed its admiration by extending George's contract indefinitely.
Unlike any other comedy show in Las Vegas, George gives away a number of prizes every night including CD's, DVD's, diamond necklaces, dinners at prestigious restaurants, tropical cruises and even a new car. One of Wallace ongoing jokes is calling past audience members in the middle of the night to let them know they haven't won the car.
You never know what will happen at the George Wallace Show. He is ever the evolving comedian, which is why you will never see the same show twice – because in his words, he always “be thinkin'.”
