It was supposed to be a five minute interview with comedian Carlos Mencia–talk about his upcoming gig at Gotham Comedy Club, touring, and current events. However, once we got started, Mencia sounded off on dozens of topics and I just went with it– trying not to laugh too hard.
It was one outburst of laughter and screams after the next. From a Latino Black Panther to the comedian’s real first name, we covered it all. Catch Carlos Mencia in New York City at Gotham Comedy Club on Friday, March 2 at 7:30pm and 10pm; and on Saturday, March 3 at 7pm, 9:30pm and 11:45pm.
