Comic George Lopez is everywhere.

Go to the bookstore and see a copy of his just-released "I'm Not Gonna Lie: And Other Lies You Tell When You Turn 50," a follow-up to his New York Times bestselling autobiography "Why You Crying: My Long, Hard Look at Life, Love, and Laughter."

Hit the movie theater this summer and hear him voice the part of Grouchy in "The Smurfs 2."

Turn on your TV - not now, but in the future - and watch his new sitcom "Saint George" on FX. The press release announcing the show says it'll focus on "the chaotic life of a recently divorced working class Mexican-American turned successful entrepreneur."

Travel to L.A. on June 15 and 16 and see him host the Playboy Jazz Festival. He takes over from Bill Cosby, who called Lopez personally to ask him to take on the job.

Or - easiest of all - go to MGM Grand at Foxwoods Friday and enjoy Lopez doing what he became famous for: his fabulous stand-up comedy.

George Lopez, 9 p.m. Friday, MGM Grand at Foxwoods; $40-$65; 1-800-200-2882.
