Mencia has been called one of today’s most popular entertainers and comics, according to his website, carlosmencia.com. Whether it is man-on-the-street interviews, studio comedy, commercial parodies, nationwide sold out tours or films, Mencia demonstrates an extraordinary ability to connect with a wide and diverse audience.

He began his career doing stand up at the Laugh Factory on amateur nights,and later showcased at The Comedy Store, soon becoming a regular who performed nightly. In the summer of 2007 he starred opposite Ben Stiller and Michelle Monaghan in the Farrelly Brothers’ film “The Heartbreak Kid,” and later that year headlined a nationwide comedy tour “Carlos Mencia Live,” bringing him face to face with his fans.

Recently, he has returned to his roots by performing at a number of comedy venues throughout the country, allowing him to share some of his new material with a smaller and more intimate audience.
