Comedian and actor Carlos Mencia has made audiences around the world laugh with his insightful humor on race, culture and social class. While most people might veer away from those topics in general conversation, Mencia uses them as comedic fodder. Much of his material is inspired by his background.
Once famous for jokes based on anger and boasting, Mencia's reinvented persona is more positive -- a change he has said means more laughs from his audience.
