It is FUNNY... VERY Funny!!!!!

I had never heard of Carlos Mencia before, but he is one of the best American comedians going in today's comedy scene.
John Perkinson
No one is left out...he talks about everyone on an equal basis and he says what most of us only think about.

This is the first Carlos Mencia I've heard and I'm hooked. Yes, there's a lot of cussing and yes, there are a lot of racist remarks. Carlos doesn't pick on any one group, he picks on everyone equally, and therein lies the secret. In our Politically Correct world, it's refreshing to hear someone say what most of us are afraid to say. I wouldn't play this for my Mom, or for Kids, but for my friends, I definately recommend this one.

This dvd had my laughing out loud but it is not as good as the first one I've seen by him. I will continue to try to find that one. If you love Carlos though, this is definitely worth your money!

Carlos Mencia often speaks about things that I've thought in the back of my mind but didn't dare to say aloud. I first heard him once morning on my way to my college classes on the local alternative station as he was appearing at one of our comedy clubs. I was totally drawn in to his routine and the similarity between his viewpoints and mine. Carlos is very "liberal" minded and criticizes close-minded people. He makes fun of all races, religions, etc- but not in a hurtful way. He doesn't treat one race different from another and encourages people to be open minded and understanding of other people and thus isn't racist as some of his critics claim. He criticizes the way America is being divided based upon people's gender, race, etc and encourages people to relate to other groups.

Examples of his routine are: "Carlos, why are u messing with my people? Because Ackmed, it's your turn! [...] Let me explain it to you: America is a giant game of tag- somebody is always it. On September 10th, it was [blacks and Hispanics] and then on September 11th when they showed the pictures of the hijackers, Carlos and Tyrone went `Tag, You're it!'" And... "I have little compassion for people in trailer parks who live in tornado ally and refuse to move after getting hit repeatedly by tornadoes. How hard is it for them to relocate? Their house has wheels."

The brand of stand-up Carlos Mencia uses is rather abrasive, but keep in mind that everyone and everything is subject to a hard reality thump in his common sense world view. If you can't take the obvious from Carlos, you're simply offended. Such black and white humor is (refreshingly) harsh; nevertheless, you'll thank Carlos for ripping out your funny bone and breaking in half while talking smack about "stupid" people.

I had never heard of Carlos Mencia before, but he is one of the best American comedians going in today's comedy scene. I laughed so hard I couldn't believe it. I'm 55 and this young guy just has some great material. I've even purchased his CD version of the DVD. I've defintely got my monies worth. I never get tired of his "stuff".

DEFINATELY ADULT MATERIAL, HOWEVER!

My daughter turned me on to Carlos! It was so funny because she kept saying, "Now Mom, his language is really bad...and he picks on EVERYONE!" She wasn't kidding, his language is bad...and he DOES pick on everyone, but in the same breath, you will pee your pants from laughing so hard!!! He totally lays everything out there on the line, makes you think, and makes you laugh! I went on-line the very next day and bought this CD (the one we watched) and bought No Strings Attached too! You won't be sorry with this one! I got a good deal buying this on Amazon, but would have paid more if I had to!

Contrary to the countless Chapelle fans who seem to want to bash Carlos Mencia, I happen to think the guy is brilliant. I've seen "Not For the Easily Offended" twice, and I'm going to buy it. I don't buy many DVDs if they can be rented, but this is too good not to have at hand whenever I want it.

I pick you, Carlos!
