Wallace be thinkin'
By Caroline Fontein
Now in his fifth year at the Flamingo, George Wallace is sharing his thoughts on good eats, shopping at IKEA, gift giving and everything in between in his "I be thinkin'" show.
"I'm gonna make a restaurant called 'Aint Non of This S*** Good for You,'" jokes Wallace. His outrageous commentary is met with uproarious laughter from the crowd.
Wallace started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1977 when he first stepped on stage at a Manhattan comedy club. His natural ability to make people laugh and his likeable personality were an instant hit with audiences. That year he continued to perform in New York and perfect his craft while living with fellow comedian and friend Jerry Seinfeld.
In 1978, Wallace moved to the West Coast and started working as a writer for "The Red Foxx Show." He also became a regular performer at the legendary Comedy Store. Wallace made his debut in Las Vegas as the opening act for Diana Ross in 1982. Afterwards, he performed as the opening act for Tom Jones for more than five years.
He was awarded an American Comedy Award for "Best Stand Up Comic" in 1995 and has been featured in a number of TV shows including "Seinfeld," "Chelsea Lately," "Late Show with David Letterman" and "Oprah." Wallace has also appeared in various movies including "The Ladykillers" and "Batman Forever."
Much of the comedy from his show comes from his quick-witted humor based on interaction with the audience. He starts with a few jokes and then walks off stage and into the crowd to greet people.
"We're going to talk to everyone tonight," says Wallace while he moves from table to table. "I don't really have a show."
It's not long before Wallace moves from talking about life in general to sharing who he thinks "need they asses kicked." Judge Judy is on his list along with a various other unexpected targets.
"You know she's naked under that robe don't you?" jokes Wallace.
Apart from giving people a night of non-stop laughs Wallace also hands out a number of prizes. On the night the show was attended he gave away a $500 gas card, DVDs, T-shirts, a box of chocolates and $100 bill.
Wallace ends the show with his infamous "Yo mama" jokes, where he indulges in more playful banter with people in the audience. There's no telling what he will say or do next.
