Comedian George Wallace at Laugh Factory Chicago

Comedian George Wallace is on Comedy Central's list of the top 100 stand-up comedians of all time and is hailed as "the new Mr. Vegas" for his headline performances at the Flamingo Las Vegas.

Wallace is in Chicago this weekend to help celebrate the grand opening of Laugh Factory.

Wallace has appeared in numerous television shows including HBO's One Night Stand, Seinfeld and The Tonight Show, and in films like The Lady Killers, The Wash and Little Nicky.

After writing for The Redd Foxx Show early in his career, Wallace was featured on the cable television special The Big Laugh Off, where he competed against 150 other comedians and took home first prize.

Wallace's most recognized material is his "I Be Thinkin'" lines and jokes about everything from conversational thoughts to political aspirations. Each show he engages members of the audience in comical banter. If provoked, he might even throw out a few of his signature "Yo Mama" jokes.

Wallace can be seen in "The Best 10 p.m. Show on the Las Vegas Strip" at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas.
