His stand-up, like his television series, is based on his experiences being raised by a, shall we say, under-affectionate woman (it was his grandmother in real life and his mother on the show). Lopez has never claimed abuse, but if his stories are to be believed, his grandmother invented tough love, with an extra heavy dose of tough. Expect some new material (all those hours on the couch with his famous guests have given him plenty of fodder) and some classics (such as his signature Why you crying? as in Ill give you something to cry about, one of his grandmothers favorite sayings to the young George.) 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Verizon Wireless Theater, 520 Texas. For information, call 713-230-1600 or visit www.livenation.com. $49.50 to $60.
