Carlos Mencia = Joke Thief?

Postby Kilroy » Sun Apr 01, 2007 1:16 am

Apparently there's an ongoing feud between Carlos Mencia and Joe "Fear Factor" Rogan, wherein Rogan has accused Carlos of repeatedly stealing other comedian's material, including Sam Kinison and Bill Cosby:

If you do a search at Youtube for "Carlos Mencia joke thief" there's a video of Rogan confronting Mencia at The Comedy Store in LA. (The language is a little sketchy, so I didn't link it)

Interesting stuff.

Mencia has been stealing jokes for years. However in all fairness alot of stand ups do in one way or another. Also i wouldent say every joke he says is stolen. personaly i dont think he is that funny to begin with.

Joe Rogan is an utter idio.t As for Mencia... Im not the biggest fan of him but to say he steals jokes is dumb because by those standards every comic steals jokes from those who came before them.

It's pretty hard to come up with completely original material considering how many comics have come and gone.....So I don't care if comics recycle material here and there and add their own spin to it....Mencia has some funny bits, but I can't take him after a while.....

Rogan outed Dane Cook a while back....Now Dane is a joke thief....I know people love him, and he has that energy and whatever....But he doesn't even bother recycling the jokes....He has quoted some of Louis CK's jokes verbatim....It's like, "Who are you trying to kid, Dane?" :-°

Mencia is known for stealing jokes, everyone in the industry knows this. I have seen both videos and Rogan owns Mencia.

If Mencia is stealing jokes then he needs to find better ones to lift. I can't say I have ever even cracked a smile at any of his material, I find him tough to bear.

Why I listen to Mitch Hedberg...

Dane Cook does pull it off a lot better than Mencia does, though.

Rogan completely owned Mencia, I don't know how he sat through all of that knowing he's full of it. Too bad Carlos didn't do something silly and push Joe. !+)
