LAS VEGAS, May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- George Wallace has performed across the globe and in comedy clubs across the country for four decades. He has been in movies, on television and radio, and had his own show in Las Vegas for a decade just wrap up. The Las Vegas Review Journal dubbed him The New Mr. Vegas. But he has never put his story down on paper – until now.
His debut book, Laff It Off!, contains humorous chapters on money, aging, parenting, religion, and racial differences. He also muses on postal workers, bullies, playing hooky from work, stupid people, the economy, the Food Network, clutter, and things made in China. Wallace also presents glimpses into his youth and Atlanta upbringing, his early jobs that included selling rags and bus advertising, and how he got his first break in a long entertainment career that has been praised by Jay Leno, Chris Rock, Arsenio Hall, and his mailman.
Wallace, recently honored for his lifetime achievements at BET Centric's Soul Train Awards, was rated one of the top 25 funniest tweeters by Rolling Stone Magazine, and ranked by Comedy Central as one of the all time greatest stand-up comics.
Wallace offers insight on the following:
Wallace makes a great effort to encourage us to embrace humor as a way of life. "If we all had a sense of humor about ourselves and our differences, this world would be so much nicer," he writes.
When the Baby Boomer reflects on aging he notes: "We don't stop laughing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop laughing."
So does Wallace have any plans of slowing down?
"I'll never stop working," he writes. "My corpse will be telling jokes at my funeral. You're gonna hear a muffled 'yo mamma' joke as they lower my casket. I won't ever stop."
