Ned Arnel Mencía (born October 22, 1967), better known by his stage name Carlos Mencia, is a Honduran-born American comedian, writer, and actor. His style of comedy is often political and involves issues of race, culture, and social class, juxtaposing existing social issues with ethical convention. He was formerly the host of his own show on Comedy Central, Mind of Mencia.

Personal life

Mencía was born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the seventeenth of eighteen children. His mother, Magdelena Mencía, was Mexican, and his father, Roberto Holness, was a Honduran whose distant ancestors included immigrants from Germany, England, and the Cayman Islands.[2] At the time of his birth, Mencía's mother engaged in a domestic dispute with his father, and declined to give her son his biological father's last name.[1][3] The name appearing on his birth certificate is "Ned Arnel Mencía", although Mencia has said that out of respect for his biological father he went by the Holness name anyway, and was known as "Ned Holness" until he was eighteen years old.[1]

Mencia was raised in East Los Angeles, California by his aunt Consuelo and uncle Pablo Mencia. By his own admission, staying out of trouble was difficult while growing up, but with the help of his family he excelled in school and stayed out of gangs. He majored in electrical engineering at California State University, Los Angeles, but left early to pursue a career in comedy after a successful performance at an open mic night at The Laugh Factory. He also has an older brother named Joseph Mencia who often appears on Mind of Mencia.

Mencia lives with his wife, Amy, in the Los Angeles area of California. They have one child, Lucas Pablo Mencia.[4]

Career

Mencia was a quick success at such venerated LA stand-up venues as The Comedy Store and The L.A. Cabaret. This led to appearances on The Arsenio Hall Show and Buscando Estrellas, where he attained the title "International Comedy Grand Champion." Then, in 1994, Mencia was chosen to host HBO's latino comedy showcase Loco Slam.

Mencia followed up Loco Slam by hosting Funny is Funny! on Galavision in 1998. He would continue to do stand-up, including a very successful tour in 2001 with Freddy Soto and Pablo Francisco, "The Three Amigos." Mencia also did two half-hour specials on HBO, the second of which won him a CableACE Award for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special. After the release of his first comedy album by Warner Records, Take A Joke America, Mencia performed his break-out performance on Comedy Central Presents in 2002.

By the time his career began to take off in the early 2000s, Mencia was also working as an actor doing guest appearances in the television shows Moesha and The Shield, and starring in the film Outta Time and the animated show The Proud Family.

Mind of Mencia

In March 2005, Comedy Central announced Mencia's own half-hour comedy show, Mind of Mencia. The show mixed Mencia's stand up comedy with sketch comedy, much like Dave Chappelle's Chappelle's Show. The show achieved moderate success in its first season and was brought back for a second season in the spring of 2006, becoming Comedy Central’s second highest rated program behind South Park.[5] It was brought back for a third season that summer before being cancelled in 2008. Mind of Mencia was produced by Nedlos, a portmanteau of Mencia's birth name and stage name.

Other work

Mencia is sometimes a guest on the Opie and Anthony radio show on XM Satellite Radio and CBS Radio. He took part in the first Opie and Anthony's Traveling Virus Comedy Tour in 2006.

Mencia starred in a Super Bowl XLI commercial for Bud Light. In November 2009, Mencia began appearing commercials for a weight-loss product called Belly Burner, which he has claimed to have used personally.[6]

Criticism

Mencia has received criticism for his act and television show, perhaps most notably from other comedians.[7] In 2006, Maxim named Mencia as the 12th worst comic of all time.[8][9] A 2010 Wall Street Journal article noted that Mencia, along with Dane Cook and Jay Leno, were three of the most hated popular stand-ups by fellow comedians.[7] In May 2009, Cracked listed 25 of the comics actual Twitter posts that they considered to be unintentionally funny.[10]

Accusations of plagiarism

Comedian Joe Rogan wrote a post on his website publicly accusing Mencia of being a plagiarist, alleging that Mencia stole jokes from a number of comedians.[11] Notably on February 10, 2007 Rogan confronted Mencia on stage at the Comedy Store on Sunset and continued his allegations of plagiarism. Rogan posted a video of the altercation with audio and video clips from other comedians including George Lopez, Bobby Lee and Ari Shaffir among others.[12] Rogan has also posted audio and video clips of Mencia's interviews and joke routines being compared on his blog.[13][14]

George Lopez has accused Mencia of plagiarizing his material. In an interview on The Howard Stern Show, Lopez accused Mencia of plagiarizing 13 minutes of his material in Mencia's HBO special. He also claimed he had a physical altercation with Mencia over the alleged plagiarism.[15] The only joke that Lopez has publicly specified was stolen and used on Mencia's HBO special was a Taco Bell joke. Comedian Ted Sarnowski countered this claim, stating that the joke he performed on radio in 1988 was later taken and used without permission by Lopez, the radio station's resident comic. Sarnowski claims to have given Mencia permission to use the joke, yet Lopez later began referring to Mencia as a "thief" over the joke Lopez allegedly plagiarized.[16][17][18]

Mencia has also been accused of stealing a routine from Bill Cosby. In his special, No Strings Attached, Mencia performs a bit about a father who spends years training his son for a career as a football player, only to see the son say "I love you, Mom!" at his moment of televised victory. Cosby performed a very similar bit in his concert film Bill Cosby: Himself and wrote briefly on the subject in his book Fatherhood. Mencia told the Los Angeles Times that he had never seen the film but regretted the similarities between his and Cosby's jokes.[19]

Carlos Mencia's accused plagiarism was also the butt of a few jokes in an April 2009 episode of South Park entitled "Fishsticks" where Carlos Mencia takes credit for a joke that somebody else had written. When faced with the prospect of being assaulted he admits "I took credit for it because I'm not actually funny!.... I just take jokes and repackage them with a Mexican accent!" He is later killed in the episode by Kanye West.[20]

Hurricane Katrina remarks

In February 2009, Mencia was dropped from the Krewe of Orpheus' celebrity lineup for New Orleans Mardi Gras, citing inappropriate comments he made in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Mencia remarked during his stand up: “I’m glad Hurricane Katrina happened. It taught us an important lesson: Black people can’t swim.”[21]

Filmography

Not including his comedy specials for HBO and Comedy Central, Mencia has also appeared on Comic Relief, and hosted Loco Slam in 1994, Latino Laugh Festival in 1997, Funny is Funny! in 1998, and Uncensored Comedy: That's Not Funny in 2003.

Here are your cigarettes, and here is some gum so you can blow bubbles for that WEIRD-ASS HOLE YOU HAVE IN YOUR NECK. And here are some batteries, for your creeping-me-out machine. Now get the fark out of my store! I hope I am reincarnated as a turtleneck... Thank you for getting that joke!

(To a fat black woman)

  • Oh Vishnu, I am about to go against all of your teachings. PLEASE FORGIVE ME! If you had a personal trainer, you would probably eat him. I know there is a skinny person inside every fat one, but it looks like you have the whole cast of America's Next Top Model inside of there. I hope I am reincarnated as your feet, so that you'll never see me again! ...I apologize, I must apologize! I should not have insulted you, because in my religion, cows are sacred! So take my cheese and your magazine and get the park out of my store!

(To a would-be robber) Robber: Give me the money. Open the register, move!
Punji: You better think twice about robbing me, because you are on camera my friend.
Robber: No, I sprayed it.
Punji: No dumbass. Men don't wear dee dots. This is a camera my friend (pointing to his forehead). You are on DOT CAM.
(takes out a gun with a laser sight and points it at the robber's forehead) Oh. Now you have a dot just like me. Let us play a game. We are going quail hunting. I am the Vice-President, and you are my best friend. NOW GET THE PARK OUT OF MY STORE, DO IT, DO IT NOW!

  • Mencia: And for all of you at home, you are all welcome to visit my store. You are also welcome to park off you motherparking parks, and go park yourself. But remember, don't park in a handicapped spot.

From Judge Carlos

  • Mencia: A family is suing Seaworld because they found their 27 year old son, dead and naked, in Shamu's pen. Look if you're 27 and you're still living at home with your mom and dad you need to kill yourself. (The lawsuit also contends that the gifts at the gift shop don't show the nature of these vicious animals.) Yeah, what part of the words "killer whale" do you not understand. If I told you there were some killer Mexicans living next door you wouldn't want to hang out with them. "But Judge Carlos, I thought Shamu loves everybody." He does...FOR DINNER. Can I get an amen? What do you say, ghost of Johnny Cochran?

Johnny Cochran: If you swim with the fishes, you dead sons of bitches.
Mencia: Judge Carlos rules in favor of SeaWorld and orders the records to be sealed. Because I don't even want to think about what he was doing in Shamu's pen. The whale probably killed him in self-defense.
HEY! (With a finger over his lips sounding Aquatic) NO MEANS NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From Confucius Carlos

Young Woman: Confucius Carlos as a vegetarian I believe that all of god's creatures are sacred, what can we do to stop people from eating poor defenseless animals?
Carlos: (sounding like mix of Elmer Fudd, Bruce Lee and Asian wiseman) Ahh yes, meat! Meat has protein, protein makes testosterone, testosterone makes guys want to bang you! So do you really want guys to stop eating meat? Unless you are 'softball player', I suggest you go home and make your man a big fat steak for dinner so he'll have some of your pie for dessert. Confucius Carlos Has spoken.
Asian Weakling: Woman is only vegetarian, because she has never tasted any of my meat. Do you have question for Confucius Carlos.
White Mountain Climber: Nope, I'm on my way up to the top of Mount Everest.
Carlos: Well I have question for you, why do white guys do crazy shit like climb a mountain? You will go to the top of the mountain, you will go to the moon, you will go to the North Pole to meet a polar bear, but you will not go to Compton for a barbeque for fear of the "Black People"? Confucius Carlos Has spoken.
Asian Weakling: He who has time to climb world's tallest mountain must also be world's biggest virgin!
Teenager holding a joint: Confucius Carlos, all these big corporations are raping and murdering the earth, is there any way to stop them?
Carlos: You reefer-smoking retards all claim to hate big business, but the first thing you do when you get so stoned you don't even know what day of the year it is, is rent movies from Blockbuster, order pizza from Domino's, drink Budweiser and play the Playstation from SONY. If you really want to help the earth, you must kill yourselves 'Doobie Hauser M.Dee-Dee-Dee'. Confucius Carlos has spoken.
Asian Weakling: Confucius Carlos has excellent point, but I'll give you five bucks for a puff of that joint.
Carlos: Silence, I must meditate, ohmmmm, ohmmmmmmm, ohmmMMY GOD, LOOK AT THOSE HUGE TITS!
Woman with Large Breasts: That's exactly the reason I came here Confucius Carlos, everyone seems to be more interested in my breasts, I just want to be taken seriously.
Carlos: *breaking character* Look, bitch, the only reason you got them implants was to get attention from guys, so congratulations, you got a return on your investment. If you want me to listen to you, you better say something more interesting than those two Midgets on your chest.
Carlos: *returning to character* Confucius Carlos has spoken.
Asian Weakling: *staring at woman leaving* Don't be a hater. I'm just staring now so I can masturbate later.
Carlos: *This guy is about as soft as Star Jones' husband's penis.

"The Dee Dee Dee Song"

"Dee Dee Dee dosen't mean mentally retarded. It means stupid. This song goes out to all the stupid people out there. Your gonna find this song hilarious, and you don't even know it's about you."

You dropped out of school cause you’re smarter than everybody
I got three words for you dumbass,
“Ding, fries ready”
You try to outrun a bull,
but nobody’s that fast
That’s how you end up,
with a horn stuck up your ass
Roethlisberger needs no helmet cause he’s a star
But the year the bus left, he got hit by a car
You wanna go huntin’ for quail someplace
Don’t go with Cheney,
he’ll put a fuckin shot in your face
If you bungee jump so you can fly through the air
I ain’t sad you ended up in that wheelchair
You ignore all the warnings,
yet you light up a smoke
Now you have to talk with a machine in your throat


[Chorus]
How many idiots can there be?
Some say that it’s 1 out of 3
If you don’t know then take it from me
You’re the dee dee dee

you you you
dee dee dee

And if you are a Dee
Please don’t marry a Dee
Cause then your kids will be
(what? what?)
Dee dee dee

dee dee dee


[Verse 2]
You cry about the price of gas and war in Iraq
But you voted Bush in twice what were you smokin, crack?
Didn’t get a prenup, though you knew she was a skank
Now you’ve got herpes and she’s got half your bank
You were on top of the world with “Hit Me Baby One More Time”
Only a stupid bitch would marry Kevin Federline
You drink and drive and you think it’s okay
Now you’re cell mate’s weavin in and out the “hershey highway”
When you put tigers on your show and they can’t be free
They’ll bite your neck off and then you’ll say
(chokingly) “dee dee dee” (cough)

[Chorus]
How many idiots can there be?
Some say that it’s 1 out of 3
If you don’t know then take it from me
You’re the dee dee dee

you you you
dee dee dee

And if you are a Dee
Please don’t marry a Dee
It’s genetics don’t you see?
Your kids will be dee dee dee

That’s what they’re gonna be: DEE DEE DEE!!!


[Verse 3]
Parents are to blame for all these dee dee dee’s
Letting their kids drop out and not get GED’s
You keep your kids inside cause there’s freaks on the loose
But yet you let them drink from Michael Jackson’s “Jesus Juice”?
You don’t care when your kids come home with D’s from class
What you need to do is get some balls and beat that ass
He isn’t stupid, you say he’s got A.D.D.
It’s that his mom and his dad are both dee dee dee!

[Bridge]
This test is too hard!
(So we lower the standards)
I’m not good at sports!
(So we give them all trophies)
My dad used to spank me
(So we lower the standards)
I’m too fat for this seat
(So we widen the standards)
They say no cause I’m black
(So we lower the standards)
They say no cause I’m white
(So we lower the standards)
They say no cause I’m Asian
(So we lower the standards)
No habla inglés
(So we all become Spaniards)

And you wake up one day and you don’t have the skills
To get a better job so you’re stuck on the grill
You’re wondering why Julio took your job
But you forget to see, you’re as dumb as a knob
Your ass is too fat to get out of the house
While you’re eating more food trying to figure it out
So they outsource your job to some guy named Habib
Cause he works harder than you and he’s got 5 degrees
And you’re asking yourself how could this happen to me
I’ll tell you why, homie! Cause you’re….
Dee dee dee
Dee dee dee
Dee dee dee

The Rich Sheik

1
2
3 into the 4
You rappers think you're rich but you're really dirt poor

You go broke paying for rims on your Hummer
I'll never go broke unlike MC Hammer

I use Hundred dollar bills to wipe my ass
I hose my bitches down with unleaded gas

Rappers have cars with TVs in the back
I can't fit one in my ride cuz its a fuckin' jetpack

huhlahumalahhumahumalumanah
huhlahumalahhumahumalumanah

Sometimes I kill people just to make my day
Like that time back in Dallas I shot JFK
That was me hiding in the grassy knoll
I own a time machine it's made of solid gold

And I wasn't gonna tell you this but screw it
Hurricane Katrina didn't do it
It was me cuz thats how I blow
(Blow)

And I even call men bitches cuz your all my hoes
I shot my friend cuz he looked at me funny
and the cops will beat him when I show him my money

Girls: Hoes in the back
Gas in the crack
Snaps his fingers and we're on our backs

Girls: Hoes in the back
Gas in the crack
He paid Bush to attack Iraq.

This one goes out to all you rappers out there
They call you 50 Cent call me Gazillionaire

Eminem's Grit has turned to Vanilla
I own Europe, Syria, and parts of Manila

Nelly's always talking about the gold in his grill
I make all this money off the oil that I drill

Ludacris you say you necklace feels like a midget
well my necklace really is a midget

haaamelahmalalmaahaamelahamalalamalamala
haaamelahmalalmaahaamelahamalalamalamala

P. Diddy has Bad Boy and Sean John
I have that plus I bought a black man's shlong

I got my face on my money and my money on my face
on the weekends I ride my shuttle into space

You know a great way of getting alot of coon?
Fly bitches to your moon

East coast, west coast I don't care
When you do a drive by I collect the gas fare

Oh goddammit I have so much money
It's not even funny

Ok, it's actually pretty funny
Cause when I'm hungry I put a bald eagle in my tummy

"Oh there it goes, the American bird it is so delicious"

And I wash that down with a polar bear rib
Why don't you check out my crib

No not this one this is as small as a mouse
I own the Taj Mahal, the pyramids, the fucking White House


So to all you rappers who think your rich
You ain't shit till you make Donald Trump your bitch

"That's Him my friends
And who's wiping my ass eh?"

(To Trump)"Hey, You're Fired."
"You're Fired!"
(Sarcastically) "You're Fired!"

haaamahamalahaaamahamalahaaamahamalahaaamahamalalalala

On Hurricane Katrina

  • "I'm not an evil person, I'm not an evil person. I feel very bad for the people in New Orléans like the sick people, the poor people, the elderly, those people couldn't get out. But let's talk about the dumbasses who are still there but the ones who are going 'I'm not gonna leave! I'm not gonna leave! Because I'm going to stay here and protect my TV!' Listen, you fucking idiot: unless you have a plasma that got wet by this much water I suggest you get the fuck out of your house right now, you understand me?"
  • "Why are we rebuilding New Orleans? Whose idea was this, Aquaman?"
  • "Hurricane Katrina was caused by political correctness. I said it!"
  • "It's got so bad, Mexico sent us help!"
  • "I'm glad Hurricane Katrina happened. It taught us an important lesson: black people can't swim."
  • "Mexico sent 39 trucks filled with Mexican soldiers to help out the cause. Now, first of all, they said it was 39 trucks and 180 soldiers. I'm a beaner, and I'm telling you white people, that's a bullsh*t number right off the bat! There's at least a thousand beaners there right now!"
