My mother could say some stupid things. I do something wrong, she’d say things that didn’t even make sense. “You go to your room and you stay there until you know how to act.” I’m in my room for three hours....
By the age of six George Wallace wanted to be a comedian, but knew he first needed an education. He attended college at the University of Akron, Ohio. Upon graduating with degrees in transportation and marketing, George entered the advertising work force. Still, George’s dream of being a comedian had a strong hold on him. Within a week of leaving the advertising field, he began to perform stand-up comedy and was offered a job writing for “The Red Foxx Show.”
George won an American Comedy Award for “Best Stand Up Comedian” after being continually nominated four years in a row. George’s television credits include HBO One Night Stand, Hallmark’s movie Santa Jr. (2002), Seinfeld, The Parkers, Moesha, The Tonight Show, Oprah, Hollywood Squares, Late Show With David Letterman, Rosie O’Donnell, Live With Regis, Politically Incorrect, Entertainment Tonight, E! Entertainment, Extra and a guest-host on Later on NBC. As well as In The Heat Of The Night, Tall Hopes, The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air, and Arliss. George also appeared in numerous films including Comedian, The Wash, Three Strikes, Little Nicky, A Rage In Harlem, Punchline, Postcards From The Edge, Batman Forever and Ladykillers.
Las Vegas loves their resident comedic headliner, but even more so, George loves Las Vegas in return. In 2004, George appeared as the headlining star of his own show at The Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas for a 30 day run. “Sin City” showed its admiration by extending George’s contract indefinitely.
George’s most recognized material is his “Yo Mama” and “I Be Thinkin” jokes, which encourage audience participation. Every show George selects a few people out of the crowd to go one on one in a comical banter. George shows his gratitude to his audience by signing autographs and taking photos after every show.
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’s ongoing jokes is he plans on calling past audience members in the middle of the night…to let them know they have not won the car. You never know what will happen at the George Wallace show. You could end up on George’s radio show “Bits on the Strip” if you are caught by the George Wallace Street Team.
Wallace is an evolving comedian, which is why you will never see the same show twice. George is always thinkin’. Fans can now get a taste of what George be thinkin’ at his website www.ibethinkin.com.
George can be seen in “The Best 10p.m. Show on the Las Vegas Strip” at the Flamingo Hotel Las Vegas, Nevada. Showtime is at 10 p.m. every night, dark Sundays and Mondays. For more information please contact PR Plus at (702) 696-1999.
