Carlos Mencia, joke thief and Youtube thief?

Is this the cheesiest thing Carlos has ever done?  Maybe.  First, watch this video - a parody of David Blaine:

Now watch this Menstealia clip:

To put it mildly, I’m not comfortable with that level of similarity.  I have questions about Carlos Mencia’s veracity as a comedian and a writer.  Remember, kids; Carlos Mencia steals jokes, sometimes from very famous comedians.  He might also be stealing your Youtube videos.  Carlos Mencia is a joke thief.

I’d really need to see more of Chris Angel to know if Mencia is actually parodying part of his show or really stealing on this one.  I’d really have to call this unconfirmed.

yeah, i’m gonna say similar but not stolen. I mean, come on… How hard is it to parody street-magicians anyways? The Casby football joke was definently stolen, this is taking inspiration at most.

btw, the blaine video was a hundred times better than Mencia’s crap. Give THOSE guys a tv show already.

Did you see that call-in radio show where Men-stealia denies he steals jokes, snd then steals one during the interview!!

The DJ is polite enough and waits until Ned hangs up before pointing out exactly WHERE he stole the joke from, and saying that Old Carla is no longer welcome on his show.

Would that HBO would make that kind of decision…

Not to mention the various comedy clubs.

The original was funnier anyway.

“I TOOK YOUR BALLS! BALLS ARE FUNNY BECAUSE THEY’RE BALLS! BALLS! AND NOW THEY’RE IN YOUR MOUTH! BALLS ARE IN YOUR MOUTH! LOLOLOLOL OMG LOL!”

The other one’s actually a really hilarious spoof of that style of “Whoa” magician stuff. Carly’s is like something some eighth grader would have shot with his dad’s camera. It’s like the original, just 10x more juvenile and with 1/10th the effort.

I thought the David Blaine parody was hilarious. The way he kept on looking at the camera was cracking me up.

I love the guy who loses it and screams “Stop putting shit on our bodies!” Good stuff.

Why can’t someone put a beat down on him like Jon Lovitz just did to Andy Dick? We would all cheer. I keep expecting Joe Rogan do do this.

And how funny is it that Lovitz beat Dick like a rented mule?  Is there anyone anywhere who isn’t a bigger douche nozzell than Andy Dick?

heh heh beat dick heh heh

Id say mencia’s is trying to do the same thing the first is, i.e. show how stupid street magic is.

However, Id give him a pass on this one, since Angel’s show has idiot shills/actors who act that excited whenever Angel does something and Angel always does the dumb Mindfreak scream after every trick.

This is basically like a Mad Tv skit where the set up and first joke is kind funny then it goes on waaaaay too long and gets beaten to death.
