Someone told me that in America it's ok for comedians to steal jokes because they just do that for a tribute to the original artist. Now is that true, or is it just bullshit? lol!
I don't think stealing jokes makes a comedian bad, it's a little weak but as long as he does a great job at entertaining (and DOES have some own material) it's fine. I agree with Inkmonkey that Mencia's mostly just bad at preforming them (for what I have seen). Stealing racist jokes is also a bad idea, because the persons that came up with it do put in at least some of their own statements or points of view (that also includes being sarcastical about it). It's their personal toughts on stuff. That makes it a little more stupid. I mean a joke is a joke (like for example a simple 'knock knock' joke), but stealing some other guy's arguments to make people laugh is just bad. I don't know if he reguarly does that sort of thing 'cause I don't really know his work.
I do have to say that I find him quite a funny person now that I've seen him in that video, with his weak defending ;) You can't deny that he's at least a little interesting.
Chicks dig Dane Cook because he's a vomit dragon.
Now THAT is what I call a great preformance. It was hilarious :)
(by the way: if no one gives a reaction on this reply, you're all a bunch of racist scum!)
