Carlos Mencia is speaking his mind and taking no prisoners. Enter the Mind of Mencia and get ready for a merciless mix of up close stand-up, unconventional street interviews, and shocking commercial parodies.
Carlos Mencia is back with his extended and uncensored full-length special, New Territory. This is Carlos like you've never seen him before, but he still gives you the bold opinions and ... See full summary »
A black president. Gays in the military. Woman who like jerks. Carlos Mencia has something to say about it all in his stand-up special "Performance Enhanced" held in front of a packed house at a Hard Rock Hotel theatre in Florida.
Following the tragic end of her brief superhero career, Jessica Jones tries to rebuild her life as a private investigator, dealing with cases involving people with remarkable abilities in New York City.
No Strings Attached is one of Carlos Mencia's best performances to date. Mencia is known for poking and making fun of racial issues. However, he does more than that in this stand-up performance, which took place in San Francisco. In general, Mencia's material does not only make you laugh but it also makes you think about what is really wrong with society today.
In this hour long performance, Mencia talks about such things as illegal immigration, what women really mean when they ask for equality in the workplace, terrorism, his opinion of Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ and an argument that he got into with a woman regarding whether or not he is affected by Jesus, and how society should treat those that are physically or mentally handicapped. Mencia even discusses whether or one should have the right to speak out and tell a joke.
Carlos Mencia is not afraid to offend, which at many times gets him trouble with his critics. For example, he does go somewhat far (and he admits it) with a joke regarding Pope John Paul II and what he is most likely doing in heaven right now.
Mencia's main message in all of his performances is that we all have have a voice and that we should use that voice to speak what we feel and not be afraid to offend. He reminds us that we have a right to free speech and that we must use this right as Americans.
If you enjoy this performance, I definitely recommend watching Mind of Mencia, his show on Comedy Central.
