What’s Really on Mencia’s Mind?

Self proclaimed “beaner” comedian Carlos Mencia has a show on Comedy Central. In the second season of his show he started to throw in some drag characters. Is it all in fun or is there a hidden side to Carlos… named Carlitta?

The first time Mencia did drag was in a parody of the rap song, “It’s Hard Out Here For A Pimp”. Carlos walked the walk in three inch heels as a rapping prostitute whose message was that hookers didn’t have it so sweet, either. While his drag was good and his face was cute Mencia wore his skirt low so that his gut hung out. Sort of a love handle shield that allowed him to say he was just kidding.

After that appearance he would show up now and then as a female character but still strictly for yucks. In the opening filmed skits for is current season Mencia dressed up to parody several female celebs including Anna Nicole Smith and Britney Spears. And the drag was getting better.

This week he has gone whole hog. This week’s show featured a skit in which Mencia played a large breasted Latina participating in “minute dating”. He stayed in character the whole time dang, that girl ain’t bad lookin’. See what you think. Does Carlos Mencia have not so hidden desires?

    Kind of like “hiding in plain sight”? I doubt it.

    He gets “yucks” doing “drag”. He makes money.

    I thought he looked pretty damn good. That hairdo really works for him.

    That said, I don’t want to be the party pooper, but, if he is one of us, did you just inadvertently out him????
