Re: Carlos Mencia confronted
as an avid stand-up fan, i have to tell you that not everyone can be original all the time. it is not unheard of to refine, even parrot old bits or stories that have been passed down through comedians. some use it as an homage, etc.
while some blatantly steal, others may twist similar words. this really doesn't surprise me.
not to mention the fact that if you're doing the material better than someone else can, by all means, take a shot.
i have to say that i do hate joe rogan though, as well as his seemingly self-appointed "celebrity police" role. what a smug fuck. the other day i was watching youtube snippets of him and the shit he remarks about drugs, life etc is just completely wacko. he ought to take some of his own advice on occasion.
