The guy is a joke.Wrong. From Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_mencia#Biography
Mencia was born “Ned Arnel Mencía”[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_mencia#_note-0), the seventeenth of eighteen children in San Pedro Sula (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Pedro_Sula), Honduras (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honduras). His father, Roberto Holness, is from Honduras (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honduras), and his mother, Magdelena Mencia, is from Mexico (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mexico). He was raised in East Los Angeles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Los_Angeles_%28region%29), California (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California) by his aunt Consuelo and uncle Pablo Mencia. By his own admission, staying out of trouble was difficult growing up, but with the help of his family he excelled in school and stayed out of gangs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gangs). He majored in electrical engineering (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrical_engineering) at California State University, Los Angeles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_State_University%2C_Los_Angeles), but left early to pursue a career in comedy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comedy) after a successful performance at open mic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_mic) night at The Laugh Factory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Laugh_Factory). He also has an older brother named Joseph Mencia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Mencia) who is the co-host of Mind of Mencia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_of_Mencia).

Criticism

Comedian Joe Rogan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Rogan) wrote a post on his website publicly accusing Mencia of being a plagiarist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plagiarism), alleging that Mencia stole jokes from a number of comedians.[4] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_mencia#_note-3)
Mencia responded to the accusations while being interviewed on the Tucson, Arizona (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tucson%2C_Arizona) The Frank Show (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Frank_Show), stating that Joe Rogan had fabricated the plagiarism charge out of jealousy. On his own website, Mencia argued that the material in question was too generic to be attributed to any single comedian.

Rogan is well known for being a supporter of intellectual property rights in the stand-up comedy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stand-up_comedy) business. He has often feuded with comedian Carlos Mencia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Mencia), claiming that Mencia has stolen jokes from other comics. Rogan has also repeatedly accused Dane Cook (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dane_Cook) of stealing from him and from Louis C.K. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_C.K.) During a conversation on the Opie and Anthony (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opie_and_Anthony) Show with Laugh Factory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laugh_Factory) owner Jamie Masada following the Michael Richards (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Richards) incident, Rogan demanded to know why certain words were not tolerated but people using stolen material was. Clips with established dates of Louis C.K. and Dane Cook were then played to support Rogan's claim that Cook has stolen material. [1] (http://www.redban.com/audio/dco.mp3)
On February 10 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/February_10), 2007 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2007) Rogan confronted Mencia on stage at the Comedy Store (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comedy_Store) on Sunset about him stealing jokes and his false portrayal as a Mexican American. The argument was backed by numerous different comedians including Ari Shaffir (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ari_Shaffir).

From a forum:
Mr. Mencia's last name actually is Mencia, not Holness. Mr. Mencia's father is named Roberto Holness and is Honduran. Mr. Mencia's mother is named Magdelena Mencia and is Mexican. Mr. Mencia's actual name does not include "Carlos." Mr. Mencia was raised in the home and culture of his Mexican mother's brother in East LA.Now, there are all kinds of rumors about how Mr. Mencia's father is German. Is that mutually exclusive with any of this? Not necessarily. It is possible that Mr. Holness is of German decent, but born Honduran. It could also be that Mr. Holness is a German who moved to Honduras. However, that rumor has not been substantiated.

Born Oct. 22, 1967 in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Ned Arnel Mencia was the 17th of 18 children born to his Honduran father, Roberto Holness, and his Mexican mother, Magdelana Mencia. The youngster was raised in East Los Angeles, CA by his aunt Consuelo and Uncle Pablo Mencia, where he went by the name Ned Holness in honor of his father.

Surely you understand that a name doesn't necessarily imply descent. Ever met a chinese person with a name like "Amy Wong" or "John Woo"? Roberto could be Italian, it could be something hispanic and it could even be German.

Same thing.

Anyway, the IMDB bio says Ned Holness, and if you search google for "Ned Holness", it inevitably comes up with a ton of links relating to Carlos Mencia's name.

In the case of Dane Cook, however, I did enjoy his Retaliation CD two summers ago. But when I found out about how he steals from Louis CK (and considering I like Louis CK a lot more anyway) I really cooled on him. Now I haven't listened to his stand-up in a long time.

I don't know if jealous is accurate. It's not like Rogan hasn't had his share of success. Hell, he had a crappy show on Comedy Central before Mencia did. But, Rogan certainly has a tendency to be very immature. The Mencia thing reminds me of way back when when he had some sort of e-mail battle with a high school kid and made the morning talk show circuit thumping his chest about how he owned the kid.

well I must have recieved this link 100 times today asking me what I thought about it.
I just don't know how to feel about it. I have been doing comedy all my life so I know how it sucks
when someone else uses your material. Luckily for me most people don't want to recite how i peed my pants
at work or something of my embarrassing nature. My problem first arises when comedians today don't even write a joke
they just tell something and then shout at the end. the pure comic in me wants to see complete jokes with timing and delivery.
Then there is a part of me that just wants to go, "this isn't a song this is for fun, It is supposed to be funny"
I am not a huge fan of either of these guys. I liked rogan on News Radio. Ego's of comedians are huge. Stealing jokes will be around forever
because there is always going to be easy targets for jokes (construction workers are lazy, chiefs loose again etc.) It is kind of sad
but it is all about the money, rogan and all these guys are obvouisly jealous because mencia is feeding his kids.
I don't think I could handle that money grab anymore. I would rather have health insurance, have food, and a steady paycheck.
I am just keeping it real being the water cooler king of comedy

I'm a big fan of Mencia but I also know a guilty mother#%cker when I see one.

It's clear he's talented but I'd guess it's also clear he underhanded some less popular comic's work.

And apparently he's 1/2 German. Perhaps I'll pay for his CD instead of stealing it from the web.

Tell that to Jerry Seinfeld and every other comedian who has ever had a television show.

I'm no fan of Mencia, but I saw that bit, and it was funny when he delivered it, and it sucked when Johnny Nobody did it.

Jerry Seinfeld was an executive producer. He had total creative control over his show.

That's the case with just about all shows with stand-up comedians in them.

Plus, there's an inherent difference between acting and stand-up: acting is being somebody you're not, and stand-up is relating YOUR OWN experiences or thoughts on an issue to the audience. Creating the material yourself is the heart of stand-up.

In this case, though, Mencia sucks in his delivery, too. So there's that.

Jerry Seinfeld took jokes that other people wrote, and delivered them on his show. It is what it is. The only difference is that Jerry's writers were getting paid, whereas Mencia took jokes that were flopping for other people and turned them into a career.

As far as I'm concerned, I hope that I never have to see Mencia on my television again. If Rogan's act here accomplishes that, all the better. I just don't personally care where the jokes come from when I am watching entertainment, whether it's Seinfeld or stand-up. I just want to be entertained.

I am not a fan of either and was not going to post but I did go to Joes' website and read and listened to the part about the interview with the poker player.

I can see where the poker player thought he acted juvenile and cussed a lot. He was talking crap about his ex-girlfriend from three days previous. Joe states he does not know why the poker player thought he was juvenile after talking about someone else doing his girlfriend and other items I will not mention in the forum.

Joe then states he has no idea where the poker players' thought process changed after the show?

Rogan earned a black belt at age 15 and was a four-time state (Massachusetts) taekwondo champion. In 1987, he won the American Open Tae Kwon Do Championship according to certain records, although there is no evidence of this on the All American Open Tae Kwon Do website, who lists Tony Blanchard as the 1987 champion, and later, as a lightweight champion, went on to beat the middleweight and heavyweight title-holders to obtain the Grand Championship.

Additionally, Rogan trains extensively in the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He has earned the rank of brown belt.

This is starting to get hysterical.
As the fearful little animals scamper to a safe, dry spot on the sinking ship of lies, characters are exposed and karma is radiantly beautiful.

My agent from the Gersh agency, who is the same guy that represents Carlos, spoke to me on the phone today. He told me that he was being "put in the middle of this thing, and forced to make a choice." He said that Carlos wanted to get on the phone with me and end this once and for all, and get this... wanted an apology.
If I didn't do this, he wanted the Gersh agency to either drop me, or he would leave them.

I told them that was ****ing hilarious, and said that it's been fun working with them. The fact that they would even consider asking me to do something like that meant I was going to leave them anyway, but the sheer stereotypical "hollywood" nature of conversation actually ****ing shocked me.
It was like a scene in a movie. Not even a current movie. More like that Kevin Bacon movie "The Big Picture" that was about the evils of Hollywood from the early 90's.

I hung up the phone and laughed out loud. A real, hard, pleasure filled laugh.

Now can you IMAGINE if I was a young, struggling comic and all this shit went down? THAT is the really ugly part of it.
Now you know why people don't speak up about this shit.

Carlos Mencia Claims Copyright Infringement On Comedian Who Accuses Mencia Of Stealing Jokes
from the ah,-the-tangled-web-we-weave dept

Another day, another convoluted DMCA claim. Earlier this week, one of the hot stories getting passed around was how comedian (and Fear Factor host) Joe Rogan had confronted comedian Carlos Mencia at a comedy club in LA last weekend. Rogan's complaint was that Mencia, who has a hit show on Comedy Central, constantly uses other comedians' material as if it was his own. Rogan posted a video of the incident and interspersed the argument with additional clips proving all of his claims against Mencia, and disproving many of Mencia's claims. It is an entertaining video no matter how you look at it. Now, given our position on intellectual property issues (especially when it comes to plagiarizing), some might think that we'd support Mencia using other's jokes. However, we also have no problem with Rogan then exposing Mencia's failure to give credit where it's due. The fact is that when Mencia started using other's jokes, the risk (or price) he paid was that he might be exposed some day for it -- and Rogan has pretty damning evidence, which clearly hurts Mencia's reputation. In other words, it's not that we don't think things like plagiarism are bad -- but, rather that many people use it creatively to expand the art -- and those that don't risk harm to their own reputations (as is the case with Mencia).

So what does this have to do with technology? Well, Kevin writes in to to point out that he noticed the video on YouTube that Rogan originally pointed to from his blog has been taken down following a DMCA request from... Carlos Mencia. The video is still available elsewhere and Rogan is offering up various mirrors for downloads -- so it will likely keep appearing. However, it does seem ironic that Mencia is claiming copyright violations to takedown a video that pretty clearly shows him using other's material. It's difficult to see how Mencia has a DMCA claim at all. The video material was mostly taken by Rogan's associates -- so he holds the copyright to it. The short clips he used from other sources to prove his point are pretty clearly fair use. Either way, it seems pretty ridiculous to claim copyright infringement on a video revealing evidence that you used someone else's material without credit.

Edit: That's what I get for going backwards through the thread. Looks like Brian posted on this first.

As someone who did standup for a few years, this whole situation is interesting.

For one, Mencia is a bitch, never liked the guy really... and this evidence is very damning on his part. Then he pulls the DCMA to get the video pulled.

Irony.

But, looking at this subjectively... in 1996, I did a bit about having an itchy asshole... Dane Cook uses one now. I'm not gonna claim that my material got ganked.

Picasso said, good artists borrow, Great Artists Steal.

But, when there is video evidence... its probably not too wise.
