Comedian George Wallace started his career at NYC’s Comic Strip Live in the 1970’s, where he roomed with Jerry Seinfeld (and later served as the best man in his wedding). Headlining at the Flamingo in Las Vegas for the last decade, Wallace has been making people laugh for 37 years. Ranked by Comedy Central as “one of the greatest comedians of all-time” and by Rolling Stone as one of the top 25 funniest tweeters, George is available to dish one-liners and share insightful stories into his life.
Donned “The iron man of comedy” by Jay Leno, he is described by Jerry Seinfeld, who also wrote the foreword, as “One of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met.” No stranger to the spotlight, Wallace has appeared on The Tonight Show, Oprah, Late Night with David Letterman, Live! with Regis and Arsenio Hall. He was also a senior writer for Sanford & Son and his acting credits include Seinfeld and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
He is also heavily involved in charity work and "giving back" to the community. He has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to churches and ran several benefit events and comedy shows for the Church of God in Christ in Los Angeles. Likewise, he is the ambassador to a branch of the USO called "Armed Forces Entertainment," and has recently returned from doing comedy shows overseas.
