We all know the Mayor has a mega-watt smile and has been a political celebrity since his election last May but the question remains: does he have comic timing?

Well, we'll all get the chance to find out when he makes an appearance on The George Lopez Show on October 5th. He plays himself in the episode in which George Lopez is impersonating him. Reality Show Bounty Hunter "Dog" is also in the episode.
