Carlos Menica is a fake - Conflicting Views
The culture has changed "great comedians" had their day, but I would say Pablo Fransisco is a close to a great as you'll find today... and he's pretty damn close
I didn't find him that funny in the first place.
Pablo Francisco immediately lost the Comedy competition a few years ago. HE keeps repeating the same jokes over and over.
Ron White has the same problem, Sam Kinison's brother claims Sam rewrote his act every 6 months
Most comedians have this problem. Only a few break the mold and do something different and edgy. Patton Oswald is awesome.

YouTube - Carlos Mencia Stole More bits, gets CAUGHT ON AIR!!=
BAHAHAHA I guess he fits the Hispanic stereotype of being a thief.
YouTube - Whose joke is it? Carlos Mencia? D.L Hughley? George Lopez?
All of these guys are just repackaging jokes.
I think its hard to not repeat the same jokes when your exposure doesn't seem to grow. Its only when you get huge like the classics (Cosby/Carlin/Pryor) that you have to completely start fresh every tour. Shit, at that point you're doing tours.
Even Bill Hicks repeated some of his old jokes throughout his years.
George Carlin and Gallehger for the win
"WHO WANTS TO SMASH SOME FRUIT!?!?!?!?!"
But yea. I love Carlin.
I'm still a huge chris rock and dane cook fan.
I found this out a few months ago... I never liked mencia anyway. At least now I don't have to listen to everyone go on and on about him anymore.
its like the south park episode about how when butters tried to do anything his sidekick would point out how the simpsons already did it. Everyone has the same jokes, just different ways of saying it.
yea he's funny. me and the gf got free tickets to see him a while back. i didn't even know who he was other than seeing Grandma's Boy. His act was very funny and original, unlike most of the other dumbasses out there now.
as for Mencia, hes stupid. i laughed the first couple times i saw him, but he got old. i can't remember if it was posted here on HS or not, but there is a vid on youtube of him and Joe Rogan arguing at The Comedy Store, that was a good vid.
Mitch Hedberg...Died in his prime, though.
Sam Kinison> All other comics ever. I'm sorry, that's just the way I see it
