Seasoned comedian and versatile actor brings stand-up act to The Event Center 

PHILADELPHIA — July 2, 2018 — With a comedic career that spans across television, film, stand-up and late-night TV, George Lopez will entertain The Event Center audience with “The Wall World Tour” at SugarHouse Casino on Friday, Oct. 19, at 8 p.m. Tickets for his show go on sale Friday, July 6, at 10 a.m. and cost from $79 to $99.

Lopez can next be seen in the upcoming thriller “River Runs Red” alongside Taye Diggs and John Cusack, which will be released this year. He is also set to begin production in the film “Walking With Herb,” based on Joe S. Bullock’s novel. Recently, Lopez starred in and produced his series “Lopez” on TV Land for two seasons.

“We’re excited to welcome a well-known comedian like George Lopez to SugarHouse,” said Linda Powers, vice president of marketing at SugarHouse Casino. “His everyday observations and strong opinions are sure to make for a fun night in The Event Center.”
