MINDLESS MENCIA
Carlos MenciaThe guy working comedians love to hate is back with Carlos Mencia - Performance Enhanced, a standup special to kick off the return of Mind of Mencia. It's another excruciating hour of his patented brand of race based 'humor' that never fails to leave me cold.

If it's true that Dave Chappelle quit his hit sketch comedy show because he felt he was perpetuating gross ethnic stereotypes, Carlos Mencia harbors no such reservation, he gleefully delivers up the most insulting racial characterizations possible.

Known as a comedian that brazenly steals from others, Mencia squeezes out a variation on a recent Wanda Sykes joke, riffs on an old David Steinberg gag, delves into how gay our new superheroes are, and apparently signals that it's OK now to call people "beaners."

Filmed at the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida (puke), if there's an ethnic group Mencia fails to insult it got past me. Truthfully, I don't see the point in his act. Why do we see Mencia every week but Paul Mooney is MIA? When Mooney performs race based humor he has a solid point of view, he cuts deep and wide, there's an underlying intelligence and inherent truth behind his cultural observations.

Mencia's act on the other hand is superficial to the core, the same tired method of reinforcing familiar prejudices for cheap laughs - black folks are thin skinned, white people are ineffectual wimps, a lot of Mexicans can fit into a small place, homosexuals (even U.S. soldiers) are limp-wristed fashionistas, Asians eat dogs, vegans are hypocrites, Middle Easterners are fanatics, you get the idea.

That's not all, Carlos offers up a stale routine on the 'N' word as if that subject hasn't been beaten to death. But hey, if he yells it loud enough it must be funny.

Carlos Mencia - Performance Enhanced debuts Sunday May 16th at 9:00pm on Comedy Central. Consider this a warning.
