CARLOS MENCIA

Biography
Comedian Carlos Mencia is best known for his raw and unfiltered style of comedy, which he has
showcased to great success on comedy stages, and in television shows and movies. He has recently gone
back to his comedic roots on his No Hate No Fear comedy tour, sharing his newest material with smaller,
more intimate audiences. As a comedian who finds the hilarious irony in both the day-to-day and the
newsworthy events, Carlos is never lacking in material; he recently shot two stand-up specials due out
later this year. Carlos will also reprise his role as Felix Boulevardez in Disney+'s "The Proud Family:
Louder and Prouder," the revival of the groundbreaking animated series "The Proud Family." The show
is heading into its second season.
Mencia comes from a humble background, born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the 17th of 18 children. His
parents sent him to the United States when he was three months old, where he was raised in the Maravilla
Projects in Los Angeles by his aunt and uncle. In his early teens, Mencia moved back to Honduras. When
Mencia returned to Los Angeles, he showed such educational prowess that he pursued a career in
engineering. But an amateur night at the world-renowned Laugh Factory comedy club would change his
path, and a career in comedy began. He became a regular at The Comedy Store, performing nightly.
After he found success on the Los Angeles comedy circuit, Mencia was named International Comedy
Grand Champion from Buscando Estrellas (the Latin version of Star Search), eventually landing on shows
such as "In Living Color," "The Arsenio Hall Show," and "An Evening at the Improv."

Mencia continued his journey up the comedy ladder by headlining stand-up tours and starring in stand-up
TV specials. In 2002, he received a CableACE Award nomination for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special for
his HBO special. Comedy Central soon took notice and the show "Mind of Mencia" went into
development. Created by Carlos and comedy producer Robert Morton, the comedy series featured Carlos
and his crew with their merciless mix of up-close stand-up, unconventional street interviews, and
shocking commercial parodies. The show was an instant hit, and propelled Mencia to the comedy elite.
After the first season, Comedy Central signed Mencia back for an original stand-up special, "Carlos
Mencia: No Strings Attached," the first Comedy Central Stand-up Special DVD to achieve Platinum sales
status.
Throughout the four seasons of “Mind of Mencia,” Carlos never stopped performing live, headlining
shows across the country and internationally. “Comedy is my art, and fans are my passion,” he has said.
Always looking to give back to those fans, Mencia has entertained troops serving overseas for USO tours
in Turkey, Kirkuk, Baghdad, Qatar, Afghanistan, and many other countries.
Later, Mencia went on to star on the big screen. He starred opposite Ben Stiller and Michelle Monaghan
in "The Heartbreak Kid," and in the family-comedy "Our Family Wedding," alongside America Ferrara
and Forrest Whitaker.
Carlos Mencia presently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two sons.For more information, please
