Mind of Mencia.

How is this show still on the air?

It's terrible. I'm all for laughing at stereotypes, but damn.

Not funny. Apparently, Mencia is a big ol' plagiarist, and, uh, not Mexican. He's Dutch, or something.

Mencia needs to have a rifle put up his ass, then it needs to be fired many times.

None of his material is actually his.

I have no idea how a suck hole like him gets a show and briliant comedians like Brian Regan don't have a show.

I'll be the voice of distention here. I Mencia.


What, you didn't hear? I Mencia


So what he plagiarizes. The losers he took the material from couldn't be funny if they were telling jokes by number!
Joe Rogan? He's nothing but a whiny little b!tch punk. Here's a cookie, get over it.

Stereotypes, helz yeah! You need to be able to laugh at your self first. When you can do that comfortably and freely then you have earned the right to laugh at other things.

Who cares what nationality he is? Did it really matter that The Three Stooges were Jews? Not at all, they were funny.

I say this to all of you... Get up on the stage and do it better.

Oh, you can't? Well then you know what to do. And I mean this in the kindest possible way.

Yeah and Robin Williams is known for stealing jokes too. But I still find Robin and Mencia to be funny because joke telling is all in the delivery and I think they both deliver. Not there fault that the people the might of got the jokes from couldn't deliver. If they could we probably would have heard of them instead.

I got sick of Chappelle, he was funny at first but if you watch more than one episode back to back, you start to see they are all the same and it gets boring.

Exactly!

Reminds me of a story.

This new guy, first day in jail, is at dinner. Someone hollered "78!" and everyone laughed. A bit later someone shouts "15!" and the population is laughing so hard tears are streaming down their faces.

After chow the new guy asks his cell mate what all this was about. The cell mate explains that they aren't allowed to talk at dinner so, the jokes are all assigned a number and when someone wants to tell a joke at meal time the just pick a number, shout it out and the people laugh.

The new guy thinks this would be a great way to break the ice and asked his cell mate if he could get a copy of the list so he could tell a joke at dinner tomorrow night. The cell mate says sure, he could use his, and the new guy spent the evening perusing the list.

The next day the new guy spends all day going over the joke in his head to make sure he's got it right for dinner.

Well, dinner time comes in and the file in, grab their meals, sit down and start to eat. Someone across the way hollers out "6!" and the place erupts in laughter. Just as he's ready to start on his desert the new guy hollers out "85!" and there is dead silence and everyone gives this guy a menacing look.

Out in the yard after dinner the new guy gets his arse thoroughly stomped by three of the biggest, meanest guys in stir. With a weak gasp of breath he asks these three guys "Why?". They scour at him, spit on him and say... "Some people just can't tell jokes."

Yeah, he stole from BILL COSBY. Considered one of the best comedians... ever. He lies about it also, like go on youtube and find the video of him stealing Bill Cosby's joke; it's so obvious I serioursly thought it was just a slow motion replay, and he DENIES IT!

Also the steryotypes, he's laughing at "himself" because it doesn't hurt him. He's fricken German, his real name is Ned. He makes racial humour about gays, mexicans,whites,blacks and it doesn't bother him because he is not making fun of his race.

The guy is an crappy comedian, and his show is just trying to be a Carbon copy of the chappelle show, except dave's show was hilarious and I have yet to laugh at something that happened on mind of mencia.

Humor is about telling the joke.
A hundred people can tell a joke but it might take the 101st person to tell the joke and make it funny.
If Mencia is the person i think he is he's damn funny, a good story teller and a good joker. You all are hating. Carlos is no worse then all the other stupid imbecillic hacks on tv. he amuses some people and doesn't others. He obviously brings in some sort of ratings/ad money otherwise he would not be on the air, because let's face it - TV does not leave much stuff on that doesn't make them money unless its their own show they're trying to push.

Tell me this... just how many ORIGINAL jokes are there? Maybe three dozen. Everything else is just a variation on the theme.


And just what race are Germans? Martian?!?!?!

Here's two bucks. go buy a clue then come back. I hate doing battle with an unarmed person.

Watched the show once and didn't understand why people thought it was funny. I don't think he can tell a joke well.

Then a lot of friends were going on and on about how funny it was so I gave it a second chance. It was worse than the first time.

Joe Rogan is 10x funnier than Mencia ever thought was possible.

Same sentiments except replace Mencia with that idiotic hack they called Chapelle and thought was the funniest man who could crack the same joke 20000 times in his career
Its all relative to a person's humor.
