Carlos Mencia: No Strings Attached

I think Mencia is funny. But I can see him burning out real quick. His whole bit will begin to get stale unless he decides to talk about something other than different races.

Anyone see Jim Gaffigan, "Beyond the Pale" a few weeks ago? His whole Hot Pockets bit had me crying. :-b

Someone else on here likes him? wow.

Wow, I guess I'm in the minority here. I like Mencia. His "Not for the Easily Offended" is a great show. Last night was pretty good, although it was on TV so he had to clean it up. What he didn't clean up was bleeped out anyway, which takes out some of the fun.

I actually haven't watched Mind Of Mencia yet, but I'm hoping to catch it next time it's on. His standup is great though, in my opinion.

I don't like Racy jokes in general. Much less one from a Latino who discriminates(makes fun of) against his own race.

I guess that's where we differ then. I like his 'Screw PC' attitude. He's got no problem making fun of himself.

While PC is completely retarded, I don't like the so called 'Screw PC' attitude where you constantly make a bunch of racist jokes. I really do not understand why people insist on seperating themselves into a race. It's just your damn skin color, who gives a ****? Even if you do like racist jokes, none of his are even original. I don't understand how you can find, haha you like tacos, you damn beaner funny. In Carlos' famous words, Dee Dee Dee

The new season starts soon.
The only part I didn't really like about last nights show was how he went on for like 20minutes about mentally/physically disabled people. He usually doesn't do anything like that, and like he said Dee Dee Dee "doesn't make fun of people who were born retarded, but people who were born normal and are now retarded." So yeah, I thought that was kind of odd and for the most part just wrong. But the rest of the stand up was good.

Ron White's new one called: "You Can't Fix Stupid" comes out. :-)


Mencia's not funny, but neither are any of the Redneck Comedy Crew or whatever they're calling themselves...especially Larry the Cable Guy

to each his own though


Check out Drunk in Public by Ron White. If you still don't think he's funny, there's no changing your mind.

As to Larry the Cable Guy, I pretty much agree. Not too funny.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
