About Carlos Mencia
As for the day, Carlos Mencia net worth stands at the impressive $15 million and I guess this tells you a little something about his professional success. But it is not only his fortunes that constantly draw public attention to this comedian. He is a controversial personality who has been involved in public conflicts with a few other entertainers (most notably, Joe Rogers) and has received some public criticism for inappropriate, insensitive and sometimes racist jokes. So in this article we are going to discuss both Carlos Mencia net worth (the sources of it) and the scandals he has been involved in.
The future millionaire was born in Honduras, in a family of 18 children where he was the 17th, so I guess there is no need to tell you that back in childhood he did not role in money. Besides, it was not his parents who raised him, but his Consuelo and uncle Pablo Mencia. The comedian has admitted that back in childhood he was pretty difficult to handle, but thanks to the caring family, he stayed away from gangs and even excelled at school. Mencia majored in electrical engineering at California State University, Los Angeles and who knows, maybe he would have spent his whole life working in this professional field if it was not for one successful performance at The Laugh factory during an open mic night.
His raise to the fame was really rapid and Carlos Mencia net worth grew accordingly. After realizing that electrical engineering is not really his thing, he started performing at The Comedy Store, L.A. Cabaret and even appeared on Arsenio Hall Show. I doubt that Carlos has ever regretted changing his career path, because to this day he speaks about his job with a certain pride that can be heard in the following quotation: „ In the end, I tell jokes. I make people laugh. I make sense out of ridiculous situations, but in the end, it’s all about laughter. It’s all about your cheek hurting, your stomach hurting” . Carlos‘ career in entertainment business reached the whole new level in 2005, when he started working on television comedy series Mind of Mencia.
Around the same time there was a scandal as Joe Rogers has accused Carlos of stealing jokes that were actually made up by him and other comedians. Of course, Carlos denied all such accusations, saying that “I don’t have the time to steal other people’s material even if I wanted to, … The reason why these rumors got started is that I don’t really contest them because I don’t believe they deserve contesting. I really don’t.” But still, could it be that Carlos Mencia net worth actually comes from the stolen jokes?…
