Comedy superstar Carlos Mencia is stopping by Stanford’s to do two shows tonight and tomorrow at 8 P.M…
He’s a great guy. I called several big stars to see if they could fill in for early summer because we lost two big acts due to movie filming – Bryan Callen (Hangover 3) and T.J. Miller (Tom Cruise’ Rock of Ages). Both Callen and Miller will be back in late summer or early fall.
So we had some big shoes to fill.
Mencia was set to appear in Chicago this weekend, so he was kind enough to fill in and do a couple weeknights.
Carlos is a regular these days at Treasure Island in Vegas and does mostly casinos and theaters today. Those are much bigger paydays than at a comedy club, so it was very kind of him to help out on short notice.
Mencia has lost an incredible 70 pounds!
He’s down to 150, looks like he’s 35 years old, and is in top shape. We’re both clients of Matt Blake at Creative Artists in Los Angeles. Obviously Carlos is a much bigger client, but Matt originally got me Carlos, Pablo, Frank Caliendo, Katt Williams, Pauly Shore, and many more. And although Carlos became a huge star, he never forgot us.
So here’s your chance to see a true superstar up close and personal. Mencia, Tuesday and Wednesday. He’s a top talent. It’s also Hollywood Casino‘s first of four summer comedy concerts at Stanford’s. Later it’s Michael Winslow, Bobcat Goldthwait and Dante and Rebecca…
