According to Mayan, presenting my dad with the Lifetime Achievement award was a truly unforgettable experience. “And it was really funny before I went to present him, I found a note that he had written to himself at 17, and it said, ‘I don’t know if I will make it but I believe I will. I will hit the American people like a hammer. I will be the best,’” she said. “I think I think that was so fitting. I’ve seen him grow and the perseverance, he has showed. It was a really special moment, and I’m so proud of him, and that was a really nice moment for both of us that we’re going to have forever.”

The talented actress and comedian also opened up about her unique bond with her father, revealing that their shared passion for comedy has always been a driving force in their relationship. From a young age, both Mayan and George manifested their dreams of success in the entertainment world, and their mutual love for comedy has served as a strong foundation for their connection.

“I love being able to create something that you don’t know what’s going to happen but and it never will happen again. I feel like improv, I was able to find my own identity and comedy. And it was a way to be training and channeling. I was always manifesting,” she said. “I really wanted to be on SNL and I was like ‘NBC, NBC,’ I always wanted to be on NBC. And now, I still get to play and do what I learned a whole different way.”

I had the best time, the team was great, and I got to watch my favorite show in my favorite show,” she said, adding she was surprised to learn the tricks of the trade. “It was very much like, ‘Oh, that’s how it works.’ It was interesting, as a fan, to know the top five for a long time,” Lopez revealed.
