His first stand up was on Comedy Central a few nights ago and it made me remember just how good he is. Whatever got to him, hopefully there is a cure because Carlos Mencia is just about the worst comedian I've ever heard.

my guess is drugs or alcohol that is usually the code they use in loonyland when they don't want to admit it.

Saw him live in Toronto last October. Hopefully that stand up bit gets released on CD.

Not even in the top 10. :roll:
Now here's someone who's firmly grounded in reality. :thumbsup:
Seriously..

Sure he's funny and his show had it's moments, but that doesn't make him a great 'comedian' by any stretch of the imagination. I consider him a naturally funny person who could say something that makes no sense and still make you laugh.

I disagree.
His whole routine is based on race and being racist. It gets old. Even Chappelle got tired of it, and admitted in a televised interview that his act was "socially irresponsible".

Shit, woman, Jesse Jackson is socially irresponsible. The Chappelle Show was a train wreck.

Can someone tell me what the hell happened to this guy?
drugs.
I heard it was World Of Warcraft that got him ;)

"You know what I've been playing a lot of?" the comedian reportedly asked the crowd. "World of Warcraft!" When a few cheers broke out, he reportedly responded, "I knew I had some geek brothers and sisters up in here!" Chappelle also was said to have expressed his amusement seeing WoW characters with names referring to his most famous sketches, including a rogue with a name inspired by the famous "I'm Rick James, B****" sketch.
