When it comes to the making us all laugh through stand-up, Carlos Mencia has clearly mastered the art. All of the "ha-ha's" aside, Mencia also happens to be a well versed in the world of knowing his "shit" when it comes to music as well. Since over here at the Weekly we happen to be big fans of musi ... More >>
[¡Ask a Mexican!] And are the Aztecs just misunderstood butchers and cannibals?
I do not watch The Real Housewives of Orange County, not because I'm a snob (I'm all about The Real Housewives of Atlanta--wasn't Kenya CRAY CRAY this season?!) but because I find all the cast members insufferable and interchangeable. So when I started receiving emails that Tamra Barney called her L ... More >>
If anyone knows how to shake off the negative and keep it moving, it's Carlos Mencia. Though he's had his share of YouTube squabbles and controversies with other comics in recent years, there's a reason his loyal fans never strayed (we're pretty sure the hilarity of his Carlosaurus Rex sketches from ...

I'll admit...I feel good about talking to someone that I might actually be taller then. It's few and far between in my life. As they say, good things come in small packages and when it comes to comedian Brad Williams, don't let his miniature frame fool you because this guy is supplying gigantic laug ... More >>
Ahhh Orange County. We might be known for our beautiful weather, pristine coastlines, and gorgeous people but we are soooo much more than that! Orange County is also the stomping grounds of some of the funniest comedic talent. With that said, we thought we'd do a little bragging on some of O.C.'s fi ... More >>
[¡Ask a Mexican!] And how many illegal Mexicans are there?
Carlos Mencia has been called a lot of things, but the one that sticks the most is--wait for it--hilarious. From his travails in hit TV shows and movies, to being a topic on gossip sites, Mencia has come out wiser and funnier. Carlos recently dropped 70 pounds, too. Oddly enough, with less of ... More >>
[¡Ask a Mexican!] Plus, is the chupacabra Mexican?
If you thought Verizon Wireless Amphitheater could only be used for big-name bands like Blink 182 and No Doubt, well, you're stupid. (OK, you're not stupid. Misguided, maybe.) Exhibit A: Power 106's "Comedy Fiesta" show, happening on September 26 at the 16,00-capacity venue formerly known as Irvi ... More >>
Though some have decried recent seasons of South Park for being a bit too smug in its satire--"South Park has gotten so self-important it should be parodied by South Park," a friend of mine said just now--I still think it's mostly great, deftly tackling targets that (usually) deserve it. The latest ... More >>
I was fairly surprised when I saw that Suzanne Whang, the inoffensively pleasant host of HGTV's inoffensively pleasant "House Hunters," was performing tonight at the Irvine Improv. After all, she's most famous for uttering lines like "Jim and Mandy are looking for a home with plenty of space to rais ... More >>

Sometimes to fit an interview to available print space, you lose a few quotes -- so here are a few more observations by Joe Rogan: On Fear Factor: "I would show up and go, ‘Really…come on! For real?’ And I couldn’t believe the people were willing to do some of the stuff! I mean, that was ha ... More >>
