He has earned kudos for his performance in the HBO drama, Real Women Have Curves, which premiered at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival to tremendous reviews and received the prestigious Audience Award.

Always the socially conscious comedian, George devotes much of his time to the community including working as a spokesperson for high-profile charities and foundations like the LAPD’s Stop the Violence program. He has received the National Hispanic Media Coalition Impact Award, the Manny Mota Foundation Community Spirit Award and was named Honorary Mayor of Los Angeles for his extensive fundraising efforts benefiting earthquake victims in El Salvador and Guatemala.
