ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (July 29, 2014) — Known for his “man on the street interviews,” commercial parodies, and hilarious films, Carlos Mencia is one of the biggest names in comedy. He will undoubtedly push the envelope to give fans a side-splitting experience at his upcoming comedic performance at Tropicana Casino & Resort Saturday, November 15th at 8 pm.
Born in Honduras the 17th of 18 children, Mencia has never been short on material. He began his career performing at amateur night at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles. His success in the LA circuit eventually landed him appearances on television shows such as In Living Color, The Arsenio Hall Show, Moesha, and An Evening at the Improv.
His show Mind of Mencia, a combination of stand-up comedy and sketch comedy, was an instant hit after its first season on Comedy Central in 2005 and ran for five seasons. In fact, it was one of the strongest shows in the network’s history. Due in large part to this success, Comedy Central signed Mencia to his own original stand up special Carlos Mencia: No Strings Attached, which achieved platinum sales status. Since then, he has branched out into the acting world and can be seen on the big screen in such films as The Heartbreak Kid and Our Family Wedding. Apart from his usual comedic tours, Mencia makes time each holiday season to take a USO Tour to entertain troops serving overseas.
Carlos Mencia will have you rolling on the floor laughing at his show 8pm Saturday, November 15th in the Tropicana Showroom. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com or via phone at 1.800.736.1420, or at the Tropicana Box Office. They are priced at $35, $45, $55.
