I know a lot of people dont like him and says he steals jokes.
But damn this guys has good delivery and can make people laugh. I have seen him and several of the comedians that people said he has stolen jokes from and didnt hear any stolen material. I am basing my review off the live shows I saw.
He is one of my favorites
he deserves nothing cause he steals jokes and makes them worse he would atleast get a rating if he comes up with some of his OWN MATERIAL! WORSE COMIC OF ALL TIME! But inorder to rate him i HAVE do give him a one but he deserves NOTHING!
Wish I didn’t have to give him the one stars but you can’t give him no stars, he is ........ not good.
Mencia is the quintessential hack. A lot of people misunderstand this term and think it refers to a comic who isn’t good at his job. To be clear, Mencia is very good at what he does. He brings in people and he makes them laugh. In fact I’ve never seen him bomb.
But a hack is the comic who goes for the easy laugh using the same predictable techniques, tired premises, and derivative/stolen material, and that’s Carlos through and through, even by his own admission.
Carlos has been dogged by accusations of theft for many, many years, and I find it fascinating that his defense is always just to say something to the effect of “that premise was old and done to death by other people already anyway, so it was in the public domain,” making him at best a hack instead of a thief.
Carlos loves making people laugh, but he doesn’t really like writing new material, trying it out, and running the risk of telling a joke that might not work until it’s been refined. Whether or not that’s a problem depends on how much you expect from a comic.
HE STEALS PEOPLE’S JOKES! HE IS DENIABLE! I DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES RESPECT A COMEDIAN WHO STEALS ANOTHER COMEDIANS’ MATERIAL.
Not funny, period. Another mainstream comedian who is overrated that the populous likes. (I’m looking at you Dane Cook.) There are just better comedians out there who deserve the limelight more than these plagiarizers.
Jokes make you feel dirty. Like i’m supposed to be in on a joke thats not funny and/or blatantly offensive.
People come down on him because he’s a shitty comic. He can’t even write his own material.
carlos rocks! why is it everytime someone hits it big there’s a jealous jerk waiting to bring him down.
