Being a long time fan of Carlos Mencia, I was a quite disappointed with this particular show. To start the show started over half an hour late and included an intermission! I felt the intermission was only to have the fans purchase more alcohol...continued

Description

Carlos Mencia began visiting living rooms nationwide when his television series, Mind of Mencia, debuted on Comedy Central on July 6, 2005.  Since its premiere, _Mind of Mencia _has relentlessly taken on topics such as ethnic stereotypes, race relations and immigration.

Mencia became known for his two solo HBO Specials, one of which received a CableACE Award nomination, and as host of the groundbreaking series, Funny Is Funny (Galavision). He was also a guest-host on back-to-back episodes of NBC’s Later, and his first appearance on _The Tonight Show _received a standing ovation. His additional television credits include a recurring role opposite Tommy Davidson as Felix Boulevard in Hyperion Pictures’ animated series, The Proud Family on the Disney Channel, as well as guest-starring roles on both The Shield and The Bernie Mac Show. In addition, he starred in his own original half-hour special for Comedy Central, Comedy Central Presents Carlos Mencia, and has been seen on such shows as CNBC’s Dennis Miller, ABC’s Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, HBO’s Loco Slam, and Comic Relief VI.

On the big screen, Mencia’s film credits include 29 Palms and Outta’ Time, in which he co-starred with Mario Lopez. Mencia stars opposite Ben Stiller and Michelle Monaghan in The Heartbreak Kid, a DreamWorks film directed by Peter and Bobby Farrelly.

The Three Amigos, a tour Mencia headlined in 2001-2002, was so successful it sparked the interest of industry execs and prompted Miramax Films to fund the taping of three sold-out performances as well as behind-the-scenes footage. The DVD of this film was released by Disney. StudioWorks Entertainment released his first retail DVD, Carlos Mencia: Not for the Easily Offended Live in San Jose, in 2005. In the summer of 2006, Mencia completed The Punisher Tour, a sold-out headlining stand-up tour of over 60 cities. The tour sold more than 270,000 tickets, making it the biggest tour of any Latino comedian to date.

Carlos Mencia: No Strings Attached – Live, Extended and Uncensored was a stand-up special taped in front of a live audience at San Francisco’s Warfield Theater. The DVD, which features the original performance as seen on-air and an extended performance with 20 minutes of never-before-seen additional material, was released on October 10, 2006 and became the first stand-up DVD release from Comedy Central Home Entertainment to be certified platinum.
