Carlos Mencia | May 20-22

Mencia began his career doing stand-up on amateur night at the world renowned comedy club, Laugh Factory. He later showcased at The Comedy Store and became a regular, performing nightly. After he found success on the L.A comedy circuit, Mencia was named “International Comedy Grand Champion” from Buscando Estrellas (the Latino version of Star Search). This led to appearances on “In Living Color,” “The Arsenio Hall Show,” “Moesha” and “An Evening at the Improv.”

Mencia comes from a humble background, born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the 17th of 18 children. His parents sent him to the United States when he was about three months old, where he was raised in the Maravilla Projects in Los Angeles, California by his aunt and uncle. In his early teens, Mencia moved back to Honduras because his family wanted him to avoid the destructive gang culture of East Los Angeles. When Mencia later returned to Los Angeles, he showed such educational prowess that he was immediately promoted to the tenth grade. Soon after, he successfully graduated from Garfield High School.

Mencia continued his journey up the comedy ladder by headlining “The Three Amigos” tour with Freddy Soto and Pablo Francisco in 2002, which sold out in record time around the United States. He was also featured in the independent films, “Outta Time” and “29 Palms” and starred in guest spots on “The Shield” and “The Bernie Mac Show,” among others. In 2002, he received a CableACE Award nomination for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special for his HBO special. That same year, “Mind of Mencia” went into development. The show was an instant hit and after the first season, Comedy Central signed Mencia back for his own original stand-up special, “Carlos Mencia: No Strings Attached.” The special was the first Comedy Central Stand-up Special DVD to achieve Platinum sales status.

“Mind of Mencia” debuted on Comedy Central in early 2005. It became one of the strongest shows in the network’s history, averaging about 1.5 million total viewers. “Mind of Mencia” was executive produced by Carlos Mencia and Robert Morton (“Late Night with David Letterman”).

Mencia starred opposite Ben Stiller and Michelle Monaghan in the Farrelly Brothers’ hit feature film, THE HEARTBREAK KID (DreamWorks And in the family comedy OUR FAMILY WEDDING (FOX Searchlight) alongside America Ferrara and Forrest Whitaker.

in 2007, Mencia embarked on a USO Tour to the Persian Gulf to entertain the troops serving overseas. For his 2008 trip, Mencia visited Kuwait to host “Operation MySpace,” an exclusive concert for American Troops in the Middle East alongside Jessica Simpson and The Pussycat Dolls. The special aired on FX in April 2008. Mencia’s 2009 USO tour had stops in Turkey, Kirkuk, Baghdad, Qatar, Afghanistan, and many other countries.

Most recently, Mencia has gone back to his comedic roots, performing at a number of comedy venues – allowing him to share his newest material with a more intimate audience. His current tour, called the “C 4 Urself Tour,” has been making stops all around the country, performing to eager audiences.

“When Cledus does a parody of one of your songs you are legitimate, you know you are successful. I’m glad to call him a friend.” – Trace Adkins

“When you’re playing the part of a fool as Cledus does it’s a lot of hard work. You should see how hard that man works at being a fool! He may play the part of a fool on TV, but I can promise you he’s not a fool” – Toby Keith

Arnez J | Jul 22-24

To those in the know Arnez J. one of the hottest, most talked about comedic artists in the game. His
raw energy, talent and comedic skill quickly landed Arnez the coveted hosting slot on BET’s longest running comedy series “Comic View” for two seasons joining the ranks of hosts such as D.L. Hughley and Cedric the Entertainer. His hilarious new comedy special “Racially Motivated” is now available on
Netflix.

Arnez J.’s charisma and physical agility are unforgettable. “J is a whirling dervish on stage–he runs,
jumps, spins, slides, slips, and mugs through a performance, acting out many of his bits while describing
them,” wrote Doug Kaufman in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Arnez admits of himself “I’ve always
expressed my things through mannerisms and facial expressions rather than speaking.”

On his own at age 14, Arnez lied about his age to get a job at a gas station to work his way through
school. With dreams to become a professional baseball player, Arnez began working as a flight
attendant when those baseball plans fell through. It was while working as a flight attendant that Arnez
discovered his comedic talent. He realized that he had the ability to keep the passengers and crew
laughing and, upon encouragement from friends, he made his first attempt at stand-up comedy. After
that first night on stage, he knew what he wanted to do. He left his job with the airlines and made the
decision to devote all of his time to a career in comedy.

Arnez got a chance to combine his ambitions as both an athlete and performer when he was recruited
by scouts for the famed Harlem Globetrotters basketball team who saw his very physical comedy
routine at a local basketball game. However, after several months, a knee injury ended his
Globetrotters career, finally clearing the way for him to devote himself full time to standup comedy.

An Atlanta native, Arnez began working the comedy circuit in Georgia and quickly became one of
“Hotlanta’s” funniest newcomers. A finalist in the “Bay Area Black Comedy Competition,” he was
immediately noticed by the entertainment industry and was asked to make his first television
appearance on Showtime’s “Comedy Club Network.” Numerous television appearances soon followed
including appearances on “The Keenan Ivory Wayans Show,” “Louie Anderson’s Comedy Showcase,”
Comedy Central’s “Make Me Laugh,” NBC’s “Friday Night Videos,” “The Mo’Nique Show”, Russell
Simmons’ “Def Comedy Jam,” his own BET “Comic View Grandstand Hour Special,” and “Comedy
Central Presents: Arnez J.” He was most recently seen headlining Showtime’s “Shaquille O’Neal
Presents: All Star Comedy Jam.”

Today, Arnez is widely considered one of the best working artists, with a polished and highly
entertaining standup routine that keeps his audiences entertained without having to use profanity. In
keeping with his plan, Arnez keeps up a dizzying pace performing for sold out crowds at arenas and
other venues across the country.
