Mencia began his career doing stand-up on amateur night at the world renowned comedy club, Laugh Factory. He later showcased at The Comedy Store and became a regular, performing nightly. With his successes, he had featured appearances on “In Living Color,” “The Arsenio Hall Show,” “Moesha” and “An Evening at the Improv.”
Mencia’s journey up the comedy ladder kept going as a headliner in the “The Three Amigos” tour with Freddy Soto and Pablo Francisco in 2002, which sold out in record time around the USA. He was also featured in the independent films, “Outta Time” and “29 Palms” and starred in guest spots on “The Sheild” and “The Bernie Mac Show,” among others. In this same year, Mencia received a CableACE Award nomination for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special for his HBO special. This is where “Mind of Mencia” was born. The show was an instant hit and after the first season, Comedy Central signed Mencia back for his own original stand-up special, “Carlos Mencia: No Strings Attached.” The special was the first Comedy Central Stand-up Special DVD to achieve Platinum sales status.
Since then Mencia has starred in “Mind of Mencia,” “The Heartbreak Kid” and “Our Family Wedding.” He has done countless USO Tours and is currently going back to his roots with performances at comedy venues throughout the country. His current tour, called the “C 4 Urself Tour,” has been making stops all around the country.
