George Wallace is stand-up guy

San Bernardino Sun - Comedian George Wallace and special guest John Witherspoon will perform at the San Manuel Indian Bingo and Casino on Thursday night.Wallace has been included on Comedy Central's list of the 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time and has won an American Comedy Award for "Best Stand Up Comedian."

He said he hasn't been to San Manuel before, but that he'll find it. "Just give me a car, give me a microphone, and I work," he said.

Wallace said he has approached the stage in the same manner for 30-plus years.

"I have no idea what's going to come out," he said of his topical comic style. "Today is the 12th. I've got eight days."

When asked his opinion about the controversial new immigration law in Arizona, Wallace answered: "We got to do something about the border but you can't pass a law like that. What about a grandma, a Hispanic grandma - why should she have papers? If she doesn't have papers, she goes to jail."

Wallace said his comedy, besides being topical, is "also teaching people to laugh. That's the most important thing. I have a good time. I'm not angry, I'm out to make people laugh. I have the greatest job in the world."
