NEW YORK, November 21, 2011 – Carlos Menci is back and is taking the COMEDY CENTRAL stage! COMEDY CENTRAL Records releases “Carlos Mencia: New Territory” digital album on Tuesday, December 6. The CD is an audio version of the “Carlos Mencia: New Territory” DVD released the same day by COMEDY CENTRAL Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment. The uncensored and extended CD and DVD include over 30 minutes of material not seen on COMEDY CENTRAL, including the bonus feature “Carlos Mencia’s Guide to Getting Fit.”
The all-new one-hour COMEDY CENTRAL Original World Premiere Stand-Up Special, “Carlos Mencia: New Territory,” Mencia’s third one-hour COMEDY CENTRAL special, will debut on Sunday, December 4 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Mencia is back and at the top of his game. As outspoken as ever, he brings fans into bold new comedic territory, using personal stories and an uncompromising world view to connect with his universal and diverse fan base. Filmed at the Pechanga Casino in Temecula, CA, Mencia’s latest hour special puts him in a new light while still showcasing the trademark “keep it real” attitude his fans have always loved.
Mencia comes from a humble background, born in Honduras, the 17th of 18 children. He began his career doing stand-up on amateur night at the comedy club, Laugh Factory, and was later showcased at The Comedy Store where he became a regular. Mencia has been a long-time network favorite, starring in the hit series “Mind of Mencia” and several COMEDY CENTRAL specials including “COMEDY CENTRAL Presents,” “Carlos Mencia: Performance Enhanced” and “Carlos Mencia: No Strings Attached.”
“Carlos Mencia: New Territory” is executive produced by Mencia, Lee Kernis, Tim Sarkes and Neal Marshall and directed by Marcus Rayboy. JoAnn Grigioni and Anne Harris are the executives in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
