I don't get it

I don’t understand the appeal of Carlos Mencia. Is his “oh, look at me, I’m offensive/politcally incorrect” shtick that funny? He’s not offensive, he’s boring as hell. Every once and a while he does something funny, but nearly every comedian has his or her moments.

At least he’ll run out of things to say fairly soon. You can only say “black people are lazy” so many ways before even stupid people get bored.

    I was just saying this last night. I’ve never bothered watching the whole thing, just the last minute or so when I flip to the channel for The Daily Show, but it seems to me that he only exists to trade on stupid ethnic stereotypes – and stupid ethnic stereotypes aren’t really funny in and of themselves, outside of some sort of context.

    I’m glad I’m not the only person who thinks him a hack. You notice how he always has the look on his face like “Oh my! Did I just go there? Yes, yes I did.”
