George Lopez in Concert @ The Dodge Theatre

Well tonight, my wife and I went to see George Lopez at the Dodge Theatre in downtown Phoenix. We caught his show the last time he was here back on December 31, 2005. This show was being taped for a future broadcast on HBO. Well I have to say, this show was very political to say the least when compared to his show a year ago.

In 2005, his jokes were of his typical Latino flavor. He knows the Phoenix area very well and told some very locally related jokes. Tonight, he went head first into politics and the immigration issues that are facing our country today. I won't go into what he said but I was kind of turned off when he started talking politics.

Why do our celebrities have to go out on a limb like this. I know he is telling jokes but to go out and say "Fuck Bush" and "Fuck this" and "Fuck that" with regards to our government really pisses me off. The guy can deliver a joke like nobody else and tonight was no exception but come on. I was glad that towards the middle to end of his routine that he went back to what I paid to see, him making fun of us Latinos.

To George...
I love ya man but tonight, I left with a terrible grumble in my stomach.
