Comedian George Wallace is set to perform stand-up comedy in two shows at Lumière Live on Saturday, November 12, 2016 at 7 p.m. & 9:30 p.m.
By the age of six, George Wallace knew he wanted to be a comedian. He graduated from University of Akron, Ohio with degrees in Transportation, and Marketing/Advertising and advanced degrees in radio and advertising from Columbia School of Broadcasting. Literally, a rag-to-riches story, Wallace went from selling rags to VP of Advertising. Still, his dream of becoming 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.”
Wallace landed several television appearances and feature films. He was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2013 Soul Train/Centric Comedy All-Star Awards; and won Best Stand Up Comedian at the prestigious American Comedy Awards after four consecutive nominations. Wallace’s most recognized material is his “I Be Thinkin’” lines and jokes about everything from conversational thoughts to political aspirations.
