I think Mencia was also about to cry under the pressure.

Carlos Mencia is to comedy like Magic Makers is to magic :lol:

Like Bill Cosby and George Lopez. Not to mention, there are many comedians who also believe he stole material, including his friend Bobby Lee, who said that Carlos stole from his as well. He was also caught on a radio program with stolen material.

Maybe Mencia, Criss Angel and Rob Stiff should collaborate on a project together?!?

I'm sorry, Satan is busy for the next millennium with my show, Little Miss Devil Man, a parody of Pee Wee Playhouse.

The video was funny, but yeah Mencia isn't very talented apparently since he is copying other comedians to at least some degree.

LOL, same goes for most 'magicians' here. Unoriginal.

But mencia used to be more original. I dont really worry about the jokes, but some of his material is pretty original and funny or even though provoking. :? Just my opinion. ( I dont watch his series any more though- havent in a while)

Honestly, I'm not too surprised that Carlos would be taking lines from other comedians. I mean, he has a tv show, multiple tv appearances, and then whatever else he does. That's a lot of new material he has to come up with. And he's not the only one that does it. He does make everything his own though, so it can be looked at like magic. I use other people's effects, but I make them my own. Really, no difference.

I agree with David that Mencia does have some good material. I like his older stuff. My only problem is his tv show. But I had the same problem with Dave Chappel, once he had done a couple of seasons.
