carlos mencia is not mexican. he's not even hispanic.


I thought he was from Honduras or Guatemala :-?

Well, no one claimed wikipedia is a reliable source. I actually just added that little bio to their database a few minutes ago to support my claim. I'm surprised no one called me out on it. I mean really, who has 18 kids? ;-7 }:-) :-D

Like I said before, I think Larry is overrated and that definitely wasn't his best joke....Even I didn't laugh at that one :-b.....I suggest you listen to his bits on relationships, the edible panties, etc....

As an example: I find Dane Cook funny, but I think he is overrated as well....If you take away his over-the-top stage energy, he isn't as funny....There are all types of things you can pick apart from different comedians....

I really don't think Larry will last much longer in the national mainstream, he'll become more of a regional deal, so you won't have to worry about him ;-)

I think he's pretty funny, but it might be because he reminds me alot of my uncle. Like someone else was saying in this thread, if you haven't lived his comedy, then you won't find it that funny. I've lived around a bunch of rednecks like Larry, so I find it pretty amusing.

His bit about how ugly the flight attendant was is outstanding.
