Carlos Mencia at the Turning Stone Casino


Friday the 10th is going to be a great day for Central New York comedy fans. At the beautiful Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, one of America’s favorite comedians Carlos Mencia will hit the stage in the Showroom and have the crowd rolling with laughter at his intellectual, yet, off-color and sometimes racially-charged topical humor. His motto is, “If you ain’t laughing, you ain’t living,” and Friday night, starting at 8 p.m. you’re sure to be living. The Casino is located at 5218 Patrick Road in Verona. Tickets are $24/$29.

Mencia is probably best known for the television show “Mind of Mencia.” This hilarious show which was enjoyed by pretty much everyone, first aired in 2005 and ran for four seasons. This show not only made people laugh, but hopefully also made them think, since usually under all the humor were messages of kindness and tolerance. He has been quoted as saying, “I have a deep appreciation for learning what makes people tick and arguing a point until it has been exhausted in every funny way possible.”

Born in Honduras in 1967 and being sent to Los Angeles USA to live with his relatives when he was only three years old, Carlos has spent most of his life in the states, save for some time in his teens when he returned to Honduras to escape the rough situations caused by gang violence near his East L.A. home. Carlos Mencia went to Cal State college, and nearly graduated, but dropped out a few credits short to pursue his true passion and current profession; comedy. Aside from his successful stand-up career Carlos is also the producer of many of his own comedy albums and DVDs.
