George Lopez will be the first inductee in the Nokia Theatre Hall of Fame on Tuesday, December 15th.

It is hard to get into any hall of fame, but to be the first? Well, we'll call that extra-super-hard, and very impressive.

But then, say, you're George Lopez. You're a successful comedian who can sell out live shows and star in hit series and perform in dramatic films and continue to build the love.

And, in the Nokia Theatre's short but celeb-packed stint at L.A. Live, you've put in a number of nights making crowds laugh. (If you're wondering exactly how many nights, that number would be 20, which is more evenings than any other Nokia-visiting performer to date.)

With all that in mind, it makes sense that Mr. Lopez will be the first inductee in the Nokia Theatre Hall of Fame. There will be a plaque unveiled, and stirring words spoken, and the hall of famer himself.

Best of all -- the ceremony is open to all the fans and is free. It happens at 11AM at the Nokia on Tuesday, December 15th.
