Doors open at 6:30 for a 7:30pm show featuring Carlos Mencia!. Carlos is undoubtedly one of today’s most popular entertainers and comics. Whether it is man-on-the-street interviews, studio comedy, commercial parodies, nationwide sold-out tours, or films, Mencia demonstrates an extraordinary ability to connect with a wide and diverse audience.
Mind of Mencia debuted on Comedy Central in early 2005. It became one of the strongest shows in the network’s history. In the summer of 2007, Mencia starred opposite Ben Stiller in the Farrelly Brothers’ hit feature film, The Heartbreak Kid. Then he headlined a nationwide comedy tour titled Carlos Mencia Live Presented by Bud Light. Shortly thereafter, Mencia taped a new comedy special for Comedy Central, Carlos Mencia: Performance Enhanced, that aired in May 2008.
