Comedian and actor Carlos Mencia has made audiences around the world laugh with his insightful humor on race, culture and social class. While most people might veer away from those typically taboo topics in general conversation, Mencia uses them as comedic fodder. Much of his material is inspired by his background where he was the 17th child in a Honduran family of 18 kids.
With his diverse background and comedic prowess, Carlos Mencia is undoubtedly one of today's most popular entertainers and comics. Whether it is man-on-the-street interviews, studio comedy, commercial parodies, nationwide sold-out tours or films, Mencia demonstrates an extraordinary ability to connect with a wide and diverse audience.
Once famous for jokes based on anger and boasting, Mencia's reinvented persona is more positive -- a change he has said garners more laughs from his audiences.
Having appeared in various movie and television productions including, "Our Family Wedding," "The Heartbreak Kid," "The Proud Family” and "The Bernie Mac Show," Mencia's large fan base is of the political comedy variety who know how to poke fun without feeling insulted.
Between his touring dates and filming projects, Mencia has recorded and released several comedy albums that include "Carlos Mencia: The Best of Funny Is Funny," "Carlos Mencia: No Strings Attached," "Carlos Mencia: Not for the Easily Offended," "Take a Joke America," "America Rules" and "Unmerciful."
Returning to his comedic roots, Mencia has recently been performing at a number of comedy venues allowing him to connect with his audiences on a more intimate level as he introduces his new material. His current tour, the "C 4 Urself Tour," has been making stops all around the country with a two-night, Las Vegas engagement scheduled for you to see for yourself why this comedian is so dang funny.
