Watch twelve merciless episodes from the first season of Comedy Central's new hit show where Carlos takes on everything from white people to black people to brown people to slightly tan people. Be warned, in Mencia's mind, no one's safe from his raging rants and whip-smart insights.
It's not easy to balance the fine line between being funny and offensive, but Carlos Mencia manages to make it work on Mind of Mencia--Uncensored Season 1. Born in Honduras to a Honduran father and a Mexican mother, Mencia takes glee in mocking uncomfortable stereotypes. No one is immune from his sharp tongue, least of all "beaners." Part of his show is dedicated to "outing" Hispanic celebrities who try to pass as anything but. Nicole Richie, Reggie Jackson, and Bob Vilas all are part Hispanic, he points out. Ironically enough, Mencia has taken some slams for being a white man trying to pass as a minority. In reality, Mencia has some German roots on his father's side, but he was raised in a Hispanic household and speaks fluent Spanish.
Mencia makes jokes about Asians, whites, Arabs, and African Americans, but he rarely says anything that makes the viewer cringe. Somehow, the manic comic makes the person he's making fun of feel he's in on the joke. In one segment, Mencia brings a metrosexual-type male audience member on stage, orders him not to speak, and tells the man to dance. Mencia then asks the audience to decide whether the man is gay or foreign. He's neither, but with the help of the good-natured participant, Mencia makes a telling point that looks often are deceiving and that we as a society are all too happy to jump to the wrong conclusions. --Jae-Ha KimSee all Editorial Reviews
Was so confused and disappointed when his show was no longer on. I was like "this show is a big hit! What happened?". So I'm glad to own the complete series on dvd.Published 5 months ago by Carpentersfan

This is one of the funniest television shows I seen. He pulls no punches when talking about any group. The topics are political but brought up in a factual, yet humorous, way.Published 6 months ago by Wilbert Smith

Great addition for any Mencia fanatic. Mainstream comedy that takes parts of his stand-up comedy routines and incorporates them with new material.Published 22 months ago by Charles Elizaldi
Funny stuff if you don't get offended easily. If you do, you will hate this comedy. He makes fun of everyone to include himself.Published on May 26, 2013 by J. Guilfoyle
