he has a show on Comedy Central…mind of mencia. i have never watched it, but I know it is there…he also does some Bud Lite commercials where he tries to teach foreigners how to speak english by teaching them to buy beer and hit on women. i think his act is mostly about being latino and complaining about it or complaining about other latinos. so, if you are into that, go for it.

Carlos who??

Hes a crappy comedian that steals a good majority of his stuff from other comedians. Strangely enough people do like him though. The whole dur dur dur thing is him. I honestly dont think hes funny at all just plain stupid.

I saw him a couple of months ago in Baghdad. He’s actually pretty funny. His material centers around racism in general. Not just latinos.

Umm, if you know about him, have watched one of his shows and dont hate people who make fun of anyone THEN I would buy the tickets.

Carlos Mencia isn’t funny (which is odd, since he steals so much of his stuff from funny people).

Yeah, he’s hilarious if you think plagiarism is funny.

Who has he plagiarized?

soundedfury's avatar

George Lopez, Bobby Lee, Bill Cosby, Sam Kinison and Ari Shaffir are the most public ones he’s been accused of plagiarizing.

Check out this video: http://comedy.videosift.com/video/Carlos-Mencia-Steals-Jokes

He’s also been banned from a number of comedy clubs and radio shows for using stolen material.

[Edit]: Also, listen to this podcast of him on a radio show plagiarizing and the DJs talking about it after.

Famous? Yeah, in a third rate comedian sort of way. Otherwise, no.

Bub's avatar

Funny? No.

Some would say he is in famous. He doesn’t do anything for me. Isn’t he the one who does the “dee dee dee” thing? Never mind, I found it. I can’t STAND him!!
