    Holy shit did anybody catch the premier of this new show on Comedy Central? I gotta say, for the first episode, this shit was soooo fucking funny that I think it can become better than Dave Chappelle's show. :laugh
    What did you guys think? And did anybody know about that President part before?

    He's freakin' hilarious. It's a mix of his humor, his "I'll go after anyone" style, and the fact that he's truthful in what he says. Great stuff. EVERYBODY WATCH MIND OF MENCIA!!!!

    Eh...I personally don't care much for Chapelle. My thing is...Chapelle says he's going after everybody, but he really only goes after the white guy...where as Carlos Mencia says he's going after everybody, and does just that, and then some. I liked Chapelle stand-up they ran beginning of June though, funny stuff.

    It was just the first episode, give it some time, you will forget all about Chappelle. Plus, where is that Bastard?! I was promised that the 3rd season would've been at the end of May.

    I still haven't seen it yet, but there is a pun in the title of the show.

    I don't know if his last name is Mencia, but since the show is called Mind of Mencia, it can also be related to demencia, which has to do with the mind In other words, demencia, means crazyness.

    mente=mind.

  13. I did happen to see a glimpse of it and frankly I didnt like it too much...it was racially disturbing, just like the Chapelle show which I hate as well. I heard that this show was meant to replace the Chapelle show since Dave Chapelle seem to be having conflicts with comedy central.

    I saw the first episode... stupid.

    The show isn't that funny, and it relies too much on racial stereotypes, although he is gutsy he picks on any race, and I commend him for the effort.

    Basically, it's funny at points, but overall mindless and boring.

    Ya just a bunch of haters!!! The show is still funny, especially the most recent episode! Give the guy a break. And as for Chappelle, forget him, he has been gone for over 6-9 months now or so....Chappelle wasn't that funny either when it first started...

    I like what I've seen so far. He was pretty funny in his Comedy Central Presents" special, and he hasn't disappointed me yet.

    My main reason for not being able to compare Mencia to Chappelle is...sort of that their types of jokes are more or less different. Like you can't compare either to Jerry Seinfeld can you?

    I admit that the first episode was good. After the shock value wore off though, he was just a wetback yelling about stuff.

    Oh it's okay for me to call him a beaner because I'm one too ;)

    Um, well only if "beaner" was originally supposed to be really offensive and the use of "beaners" by the people are supposed to be "beaners" is merely degrading the offensive value of the word itself. And you called him a "wetback" not a "beaner." ;)

    As you can see, the use racially offensive words can be slightly toned down by the use quotation marks.

    Anyway, I still think he's cool.

    ohh dont get so damn offended...Most people in stand up are characters...If everyone was themselves...it would be really boring and not called comedy...Carlos Mencia found an act that worked and sticked to it, and for that you call him a fraud...well be that as it may, i call it successful..he entertains the crowd, sometimes offends them, but that is his job and he does it well! All you have to do, is turn the fucking channel if you dont like it...
    Geez some people take things too damn seriously..:rant

    I agree with you on most points, but I will admit I did enjoy his earlier stand up comedy.

    you could also add, he tries too hard and is also washed out....

    after you see chappelle, it is quite obvious that he's a ripoff.

    I can't stand this show, and I can't stand Carlos Mencia. I don't give him credit for how loud he can talk and how many Spanish words he can add into a joke in a lame attempt to make it funnier (not that I have anything against Spanish, but it feels ridiculously gimmicky how he uses/abuses the language now than anything else).

    One-dimensional racist jokes for a one-trick pony...and most of the time they're not even funny jokes anyway....sometimes they're not even original. Here's a cute little video of Mencia's "originality": here

    Anyone else feeling the same?
