George Lopez Tells HBO Viewers to F- Trump’s Wall

George Lopez: The Wall | Live From Washington D.C. (HBO)

Live TV still means something special in the Streaming Age.

When it comes to stand-up comedy, broadcasting a comedian’s live performance comes closest to capturing the energy and magic of watching stand-up in person in a comedy club. Plus: Filming a stand-up comedy special live as it happens ensures all of the jokes you hear are as fresh as possible, none of them made obsolete by headlines made in the weeks and months after a taping wraps.

Which, for George Lopez, filming his fourth HBO solo comedy special live this past Saturday night, meant he could reference the phone call transcript that the Washington Post had just published two days earlier between Donald Trump and the president of Mexico, mocking Trump even more explicitly about how he pleaded with Mexico to stop saying they won’t pay for a new border wall.

All of which neatly tied into the title of Lopez’s latest stand-up special, George Lopez: The Wall Live! From Washington D.C.

In the five years since his previous live HBO comedy special (2012’s It’s Not Me, It’s You, also directed by Troy Miller), Lopez, now 56, saw one sitcom come and go (Saint George, 2014-2014, FX), endured an embarrassing episode in a Canadian casino, took down a heckler in a video that went viral, launched a semi-autobiographical sitcom that’s made it at least two seasons so far (Lopez, 2016-present, TVLand), and teamed up with two “Original Kings of Comedy” for a national tour and an upcoming TV series based on their antics, The Comedy Get Down on BET.

And then there’s Trump. As a Mexican-American, Lopez has lots to say about the man in the White House. By the end of the hour, he does so. Most explicitly.
