Carlos Mencia: life of comedy
Born in Honduras but bought up in California, Mencia navigated his sometimes tricky youth and early twenties before embarking on his comedy career at the famed clubs in LA. His first big gigs included stints at the LA Cabaret and the Comedy Store, helping him become well known in the local circuit. Gaining particular popularity with Latino audiences he centered his comedy on issues of race, culture and politics. His first TV appearance on the late night Arsenio Hall Show bought him greater fame and earned him the title, 'International Comedy Grand Champion'. During the '90s he hosted various TV shows and comedy festivals including Loco Slam and Funny is Funny! as well as delivering stand-up national tours as part of 'The Three Amigos' act with Pablo Francisco and Freddy Soto. An HBO half-hour comedy special in 2001 won him a CableACE Award for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special. His true break out came when he was given an appearance on Comedy Central Presents in 2002, gaining him true national fame and acclaim. In 2005 he was given his own show, the Mind of Mencia on Comedy Central which he delivered with the help of fellow comedians including his longtime warm-up act Brad Williams. This successful sketch, stand-up and variety comedy show ran for four seasons. Returning to stage, Carlos Menica took his 2011 tour Carlos Mencia: New Territory all around the states. In 2017 Carlos Mencia announced a new show, Laughin' and Livin', his most mature, grown-up set yet - evidence of a comedian who has come full circle but can still sell out huge venues with his cutting edge observations.
