Also for the big screen, Carlos co-starred in his first feature film recently entitled Outta Time, in association with Artisan Home Entertainment/ Pathfinder Pictures and Filmstar Productions. Carlos provides the comic relief as "Juancho," the best friend of Mario Lopez, in this action thriller set on the Mexican/ American border which had a limited theatrical release.As for his other current projects, Carlos guest-stars in a recurring role opposite Tommy Davidson, as "Felix Boulevard" in Hyperion Pictures' new, animated series, The Proud Family on the Disney Channel and he can be seen in featured roles on The Shield for the FX Channel. Last summer his half-hour Comedy Central Presents premiered to a tremendous response: A US Army Reserve Major wrote "In a word... WOW! I just saw your show on Comedy Central, and I was inspired to write you a note. I am a West Point graduate; Gulf War Veteran, and a thankfully-not-living-in-tornado-alley white dude. I am thoroughly impressed by your intelligence, your insightful humor and the reverence with which you speak of our great country and the opportunities it represents. I never thought such a poignant message could be delivered in a comedy routine. You did it...and you did it extremely well. I laughed for a 1/2 hour straight, and I loved your message of learning to laugh at, with and around everyone...including ourselves, and to stop blaming everyone and everything for our shortcomings" An American Airlines Pilot also wrote "Hello, I just finished viewing Carlos Mencia on Comedy Central. I really enjoyed the show and just wanted to say THANK YOU for the laughs! I couldn't agree more with the message. I especially enjoyed Mr. Mencia's remarks concerning events of 9-11, Keep up the great work!"
Carlos' critically lauded debut album, Take A Joke America, was released on Warner Bros. Records in 2000, and coupled with another successful concert tour. His latest CD, America Rules, was recorded live and features an hour of brand new material that deals with the events of Sept. 11th.
Both albums utilize Mencia's Archie Bunker like bluntness to address a variety of subjects, including ethnic stereotypes, racism, and people's inability to laugh at themselves. It's a style that is hilariously honest, but which can sometimes stir up America's ethnic melting pot. "I've gotten in trouble with every race you can imagine," explains Carlos. "They say, 'I can't believe you talked about this, you're racist.' And I say, 'How can I be racist? Isn't racism exclusionary? If all of you are offended, that's because I'm including every race in my jokes." Occasionally labeled controversial, Mencia's humor digs deep. "I think we all feel the same things most of the time, we just don't know how to put it to words. When I'm on stage, I say it. The truth makes people laugh," Carlos says.

Born in Honduras and raised in East Los Angeles, Carlos spends his leisure time with his family and close friends, enjoying the fruits of his labors. He aims to serve as a role model to youth as his popularity increases. "I grew up in the projects and I know how important it is for kids to have hope. I want them to look at me and say, 'Man, I could do that.'" And, though the concept of laughter as a unifying force is not uncommon, Carlos Mencia is taking action to make it a reality in daily life.
Carlos Mencia's ability to reach a diverse audience by pointing out society's hypocrisies is the ultimate goal for this observational comedian. Recently, on MSNBC's Time and Again, Billy Crystal explained what he felt was the difference between a comic and a comedian. He explained, "The comic makes you laugh while the comedian makes you laugh and gives you something about which to think."
While both are valuable to society, the comedian is the performer that demonstrates artistic merit because he shares a piece of himself with the audience. The comedian personalizes his material whereas the comic looks for the quick fix. Carlos has this rare gift of insightful perception and precise delivery that has made him one of the most successful touring comedians in the country.
