Here’s something to LOL about… George Lopez is taking his non-stop laugh-fests to the high seas.
The 50-year-old Mexican American stand-up comedian and actor has inked a deal with Carnival Cruise Lines to become its creative director for comedy.
As the cruise line’s “curator of comedy,” Lopez will help secure top up-and-coming talent for Carnival’s existing onboard comedy clubs, which will be rebranded as the Punchliner Comedy Clubs Presented by George Lopez.
“Carnival’s ships offer a huge audience that truly appreciates comedic performances and the on-board clubs are fantastic,” says Lopez. “I intend to help build and nurture an understanding among up-and-coming comedic talent that these ships represent a phenomenal environment to work and gain experience.”
As part of the deal, Lopez will pre-record introductions to be played ahead of performances at all comedy club shows, as well as a new Punchliner Comedy Brunch that will be offered on sea days.
Additionally, cruise-goers will also have the opportunity to watch a Lopez comedy routine on their cabin TVs.
