Product Description

It's not easy to balance the fine line between being funny and offensive, but Carlos Mencia manages to make it work on Mind of Mencia--Uncensored Season 1. Born in Honduras to a Honduran father and a Mexican mother, Mencia takes glee in mocking uncomfortable stereotypes. No one is immune from his sharp tongue, least of all "beaners." Part of his show is dedicated to "outing" Hispanic celebrities who try to pass as anything but. Nicole Richie, Reggie Jackson, and Bob Vilas all are part Hispanic, he points out. Ironically enough, Mencia has taken some slams for being a white man trying to pass as a minority. In reality, Mencia has some German roots on his father's side, but he was raised in a Hispanic household and speaks fluent Spanish.

Mencia makes jokes about Asians, whites, Arabs, and African Americans, but he rarely says anything that makes the viewer cringe. Somehow, the manic comic makes the person he's making fun of feel he's in on the joke. In one segment, Mencia brings a metrosexual-type male audience member on stage, orders him not to speak, and tells the man to dance. Mencia then asks the audience to decide whether the man is gay or foreign. He's neither, but with the help of the good-natured participant, Mencia makes a telling point that looks often are deceiving and that we as a society are all too happy to jump to the wrong conclusions. --Jae-Ha Kim

5.0 out of 5 stars Chalk one up for the Beaners March 12 2006
By Dr. Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So he's Honduran, so what? Mencia grew up in East LA; how much more "Beaner" do you want?

I'm Puerto Rican and I think Mencia is hysterical, especially the way he rants against stupidity without regard to race, creed, color or national origin. He and Chapelle are cut from the same cloth, but their styles are distinct.

Yes, he is not afraid to offend, very refreshing in an era of bocorrectness, and joins the ranks of Lenny Bruce and Richard Pryor, who raised many an eyebrow. I'm anxiously awaiting season two.

1.0 out of 5 stars Warning! This is not a full episode. Dec 28 2006
By Karen Gabriel - Published on Amazon.com

This is only a portion of this episode. It cuts off in the middle of a sentence. Be prepared to purchase only 5 minutes of a fabulous 20 minute episode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dear Dee Dee Dee's (i.e. "Ant Popper") March 23 2006
By Rogers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
In response to the "Ant Popper's" so called "review" below, Carlos was renamed Carlos by his aunt and uncle who raised him and their last name was Mencia.

Have you ever watched the show?

If so, you might have recalled a certain phrase that Carlos uses for people like yourself...

DEE DEE DEEEEEEE!

If you're not laughing, you're not living, baby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny April 13 2006
By The Badger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Funny as hell...thats all there is to it. Who cares about politics when it comes to getting a laugh. Who cares if he's honduran, mexican, american, australian, or martian, it DOESN'T MATTER. He speaks his mind and it's funny as hell. If you dont like it, dont buy it. If you haven't bought it, dont review it. If you bought it and didn't like it, then you have a right to post a negative review here...after all, thats what reviews are for. But I think its hilarious how good he is at passing himself off as a mexican when he's not, and then by doing so can talk about them in a way anyone else can't.

Also, where I live, and work...the whole area is dominated by illeagal mexiacan immigrants...where 10 years ago there were almost no mexicans in the area. They work jobs for 8 bucks an hour that a documented worker and citizen would otherwise get paid 15-20 dollars an hour. There are americans here with no jobs and families, including LEGAL Immigrants, that cant get a job because the illeagals will always work for cheaper...

1.0 out of 5 stars Mindless Garbage July 26 2007
By Bill Lumbergh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
If this is the show used to fill in the tragically canceled Chappelle's Show, then there is no God.

Carlos Mencia is a worthless "comedian" who can't imagine things beyond being racist. He always compares Mexicans to other people, but sorry to break the ice, but Mencia is not Mexican. He is a mix of Honduran and German, no Mexican in his blood at all. The man's jokes are rehashed, idiotic, and downright cruel and unfunny. If there weren't stereotypes in this world, then this show wouldn't have existed. At least when Dave Chappelle does his stereotypical jokes, he doesn't have to enhance them with mindless yelling and he knows what he's talking about.

I would give the man much more respect if he admitted that he was Honduran. I'd also give him more respect if he wasn't always using degrading Mexican jokes and actually opened up his mind. But no, this is how it turns out. Save yourself the trouble and watch anything else on Comedy Central besides this.
