RENO, Nev. (March 4, 2019) — Carlos Mencia began his career doing stand-up on amateur night at the world-renowned comedy club, The 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 will perform live at the Silver Legacy Resort Casino at THE ROW on Saturday, Sept. 14. 

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”).  

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.   He is also working on a brand new comedy special, to be released in 2018.  

Tickets will go on sale Saturday, March 9 starting at $39.50 and can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com or by calling 775-325-7401.
