    Why is it when someone remakes a song, it`s OK. When someone remakes a movie, it`s OK. But when someone remakes a joke (and makes it better by being more emotional, and a better style,) it`s not? Whether or not his spit is original, it`s entertaining and fun!

    and another thing, do you know why Joe Rogan doesn`t have to steal jokes to fill his 45 minute spot? Because he runs a joke to the ground! 10 minutes and is still on the same joke! Move on, and stop beating a dead horse already!

    when it comes to comedy, I`m a big fan.

    Before I even knew that CM stole jokes ect off other comedians, I found his shows to be rude, I mean, almost too rude and therefore will not support anything he does.
    He just trys to get a point over by swearing and blindin`, and I dont find that funny at all.

    Well first off, when someone remakes a movie people have a kicking, and screaming, "OH MY GODS NO!!" knee jerk reaction.
    Second, when someone remakes a movie or song they get permission from the studio and/or the artist who created it, they get credit and everyone knows it`s a remake.
    What Neddy boy does on the other hand is out right steals the jokes, passes them off as his, and lies about it. The comedian who came up with the joke gets no credit for it. It`s plagiarism.

    I would disagree with the perfecting the joke comment. I though that Cosby`s delivary was much better. It gives a better sense of the progress and effort in the training whereas Mencia`s simply conveys that he spent time playing catch and moving about. I feel that Cosby portrays the injustice better and gives a more realistic reaction to said injustice which is easier to relate to and thus is more funny.

    Jeezo peezo people, ok, here it is:

    A man working at a computer company develops this software that basically can do something never done before (pick something yourself, if you want). He works and SLAVES on this software, knowing he will probably get a promotion for it, and is helping people everywhere understand the world better. This stuff is his pet project, his baby, and finally he gets it just right. His company decides to give it to a few thousand people to test. The testers love it, they rave over it, the man gets promoted up 2-3 executive levels.

    Then, there is another man trying to develop software that can do what the first man`s does. He`s not very good at it, and he finds it frustrating that he knows other people are starting to succeed where he has failed. Finally, he manages to get his hands on the first man`s software, and he makes a cheap imitation, one where he can open his own

    business and sell this thing for half of the other`s price, even though it only works about 1/4 well. People turn, and because of the second man`s glitzy marketing and wonderfully charismatic image, they start to buy his product. The first man, although equally charismatic and working very hard, starts to lose money, as people use the cheaper imitation of his program just because it is cheaper and glitzier.

    Tell me, in this situation, are the second man`s actions legal or illegal?

    Take a minute to decide...


    If you answered illegal, you are correct, and can probably figure out that this is basically what Mencia has done. The first man is every comedian he has ever stolen from. The glitzier advertising is the image of "raw uncensored reality" he and his promoters try to put out there... He is a criminal, and should be brought to jsutice for his actions. The only problem is, nobody has taken him in yet... He must be really slippery.... Probably uses bribes...

    I never like that idiot. Not for a second. Even if that joke WAS his, how it supposed to be funny? The whole joke he was like "running" to the punch line, and when he gets there (and it wasn`t even a killer when Cosby himself did it) he screams into the microphone and beats a chair? Yeah that`s funny.. if you`re 14 years old I guess...
    All his `comedy`, his stupid political jokes, his jokes that`s supposed to make someone gasp say "oh no he didn`t!", his plagiarism.. all that out of concideration, he blows. His delivery, tone of voice, presense and his stage character just SUCK as far as comics go.

    Bill Cosby is a comedy icon. I know a lot of people will disagree with me on this, but it`s true. Bill Cosby has a way of being funny without being vulgar, which is a skill that is sadly losing popularity. And to see a Cosby joke used by someone like Mencia...it`s a sad, sad world.

    If you look at any comedian someone out there is saying that they steal from others. Maybe they do maybe they don`t. This is the only proof of it I`ve ever seen. And since its the only proof who says they didn`t just think of the same joke. I think Carlos Mencia`s awesome personally. Even if he did take one joke. After seeing this I didn`t think anyone didn`t like him. But IAB does have a lot of of losers so by now I`m not surprised.

    He is pretty popular among us teens as we haven`t really heard most of the jokes before.

    Bill Cosby is a genius, I love his work. His delivery of this joke was so much better...it flowed whereas ole ned is all stumblin to get the punchline outta his lyin mouth. bottom line...guy has plenty of "strings attached" every joke he does has ties to another comedians act. Ned u suck.

    i love cosby and mencia just took that joke, delivered it in his way-too-fast, out-of-breath manner, and wrecked it.

    now, personally, i think mencia is a little too comfortable riding on the coattails of others. from what i can see of his original stuff (besides being repetitive) he can actually be creative and funny all on his own. he doesn`t need to guarantee a laugh by ripping off someone else`s stuff. so why does he? i think he needs to take a break, work on some original material, and then come back into the game at a later time, because he`s just hurting himself this way.

    Who gives a f*ck! Jokes are recycled left and right. He`s not the only one that uses other people`s jokes; and like all of them he has original jokes as well.
    Have you ever made up your OWN joke? No. You tell your friends jokes that you`ve seen/heard elsewhere.

    It sounded like Mencia forgot the joke midway and just repeated the same sh*t till the end...

    And everyone who says "So what, he stole jokes the point is to be funny" I agree. If you take a PREMISE, as Dane Cook seems to have done MAYBE twice, and make it your own with different jokes about the same premise... that`s cool. Mencia does NOT do this as he steals entire jokes, some word for word, from greats like Bill Cosby and George Lopez AND he steals from not so famous comedians.

    The point is it`s not as bad to use premises but to take entire jokes? Come on.

    also, if he`s not stealing a joke he`s pretending to be mexican making racial slurs. He`s just one big walking racist joke, die.

    Carlos Mencia sucks. He`s very rarely original and thinks he`s the only person in the world to think and say what he does. OH MY GOD, DID HE JUST SAY THAT!?! Screw that, he doesn`t say anything that I haven`t/wouldn`t. Big effing deal, get over yourself Mencia. And also, f*cking stop with your annoying phrases that people have caught on to. Saying "dee dee dee" alone is a viable reason for me to kill you.

    I like comedians. A joke is a joke. I`ve heard several jokes before, all told in their own unique ways. Sex, for example, is one subject most comedians talk about, mostly about the same thing, but they put in their own unique perspective. For me, since I feel I`ve heard them all, is how its presented. As long as they make me laugh and have a good time, then all power to them. I like Carlos, Cosby, Murphy when he did stand-up, Chris Rock, George Lopez, and so many more. So everyone just get over it already.

    From the top of the screen-Here`s a list of sites for when you`re feeling bored. Updated constantly, so check back whenever you`re bored. If Mencia just played videos of the jokes he`s stolen performed by the original comedian, then you could compare the two without looking like a jackass. Compare Mencia to Ebaums World, then you`re onto something.

    ^^ Carlos Mencia DENIES that he`s stolen material.
    He behaves as though he wrote it.

    IAB, it`s usually evident that IAB didn`t "write" (or draw, video, create...) the material provided.
    You`d have to be a bit naive to think IAB was claiming true ownership of anything posted.

    the reason it is not okay to redo a joke, but movies and songs are more acceptable is this:

    a remake of a movie or song add different inflections to it that make it something new. however, in comedy, it`s the CONCEPT that is funny, so, even by nuancing a joke, if the concept is the same, it`s just a repeat. but, if it`s a new spin on an old concept, then it becomes your own.

    so, movies and music, it is HOW the story is told, but jokes, at their base, are the story itself, and how its told (as long as it follows the proper story line) is less important.

    Yeah, I believe Mencia stole his joke. Even though it wasn`t word for word, it had the same punchline.

    By the way, Bill Cosby "Himself" is CLASSIC! To me, it never gets old! I remember watching it when it was first shown on HBO.

    there is a difference between redoign songs. if even a melody or basslien is stoeln, a record company has to pay millions of dolalrs in royalties if they sue them. other times, they dotn sue them they just call them out disgusted. or they actually get permission.

    stealign jokes jokes like carlos mancia is doing, is straighot out stupid and he should not have a career.

    and it doesnt have to be word for word, in literature, an idea is copyrighted, you can chnage as many words as you want but if the foudnation of the writing is there, its considered a breach.

    therefore mancia shoudl eb shunned by everyone. but im sure mexicans wont, ebcause they coudl care less whats wrogn ro right a slogn as they support their mexican latino brother.

    Pfffft. Who hasn`t sat there as the football star said "Hi Mom!" with a big grin on his face, thinking "You know, I bet the guy`s Dad feels kinda left out; Mom probably wasn`t the one that gave the kid his first nerf ball."

    Really, people. It`s turning into a witchhunt. What`s next? Are we going to prosecute every guy who tells a joke about farts killing a romantic mood? Surely SOMEONE noticed that first, but that comedian was probably talking to his buddies about his date with Lucy the Australopithecus the night before.

    And its not about the same PREMISE of the joke, its about thenjoke hasving the EXACT SAME PUNCHLINE... *that* is stealing, its the same as if somebody took the "To be or not to be" monoglogue, moved a few words around, and claimed it as their own, braying meantime that Shakespeare never did it first....

    Scaryann: There`s a big difference between a generalization that comedians joke about and ONE specific joke that ONE comedian did.

    Stiletto: Yea you`re right, who has ever thought of stealing before? *shock*horror* Tons of people that`s why they have little things called Laws, look them up, I hear they`re the new `rules` in town.

    punk1n: "Have you ever made up your OWN joke? No. You tell your friends jokes that you`ve seen/heard elsewhere"

    WTF? Actually yes, people make up jokes all the time, just during conversation, not one with a set up and punchline. but if you do repeat one you say "hey listen to this joke Andrew told me..etc" or "listen to what I heard on Comedy central last night."

    So do you make up your own mind punk1n? NO, you regurgitate everything that you`ve heard from one side of the argument and call it your opinion.

    I agree with you on your second comment blues.

    The issue is he used the same base and just changed some words around, still defines it as a plagiarized statement.

    The other examples of jokes he stole are more "concrete" check out the youtube link someone left on here somewhere.

    OK LISTEN UP HERE.The reason we`re all pointing out when mencia steals and not other comedians is because there`s already been a big controversy over it.He`s acting like he wrote all his material.I watched his show a few times, gave him a chance..sitting there and making every stereotypical and racist joke you can is not funny.it`s just really,really annoying because after hearing 20 jokes about mexican people crammed into 5 minutes is just stupid after a while.Let`s not forget his real name is NED.

    there`s a learning curve here. like the one guy said, teens don`t know as much comedy, so they laugh at what they`re given. older folks have seen more comedy, and recognize the rip-offs.

    1. thank you IAB community, for recognizing that mencia is a hack

    2. cover songs are just that, and everybody knows. what mencia does is misleading.

    3. comedy is an art in which inovation is constant

    4. mitch hedburg, steven wright, bill cosby, bill hicks, richard pryor, eddie izzard, jerry seinfeld, red fox, chris rock, these are inovators and original minds (and just a few at that)

    so some research. defend comedy.

    Kudos Harskd. Cosby, Pryor, and many others were before my time, but yet I still recognize their importance. Not everything has to be new or remade, most times the classics are good just as they are.

    And there is a big difference between remaking a movie or covering a song and stealing a joke. They`re compensated for whatever is taken because their work is copyrighted. It`s not the same for up and comming comics. If someone steals their joke then oh well it`s gone. That`s basically money out of their pocket. Why should they have to come up with new stuff because someone like Carlos Mencia steals their stuff and gets the rewards?

    Lol oh wow boredered you really made me see the light. So you`re saying that since you find his way of telling the joke (in a retarded way) funnier, then obviously it`s ok for him to do that without crediting the origin of the joke.

    Well when (IF)you ever get to college , plagiarize a paper, and just change the "where" of it instead of New York it was Chicago, and make it "WAY FUNNIER" and I`m sure your prof. will understand completely.

    alot of you sit here and say "crusify carlos" the others say "we dont care if he stole he`s funny" but the truth of the matter is he IS stealing. the difference between redoing a song or redoing a movie or redoing a joke or redoing anything is that everyone else has to get the original creators permision its called copyrite laws.

    carlos mencia is violating those laws by taking other peoples work and putting his name on it without asking permision. this is illigle. he has been called out by more comedians then joe rogan as well, george lopez who actually is of mexican decent has filed a lawsuit against mencia (or holness if you will) for stealing over 18 minutes of his material.

    but it really comes down to how youd feel if you worked hard on a work of art, you busted your ass off, used the creative genious you were born with to create this wonderful thing and in one swift moment someone else grabs it from you switches a few things around and puts his name on

    this is all mute since his peers have calle dhim ou tnumerous times after rogan finally had the guts to do it. if his comedy peers know he is a thief thats all that matters.

    I voted for Bush because I thought,
    `Hey, there is NO WAY this guy is ever getting close to the white house again, so if I vote for him at least when the next guy f*cks up I can say it`s not my fault.`
    Time makes fools of us all. So the best I can figure is he became president by people like-minded to myself attempting to avoid future blame. The irony is almost delicious.

    But seriously, wtf does that have to do with anything, Mech? You`re not even in the f*cking country, so how in the hell do you turn something about a thieving comedian against the president of a place that you have no involvement in? Canadians live vicariously through americans because they only have ice? Oh, makes sense now, thanks for clearing that up.

    Reading through this thread, I noticed something interesting, and kind of startling. Obviously, the younger age groups (13-17) prefer Mencia to Cosby (in my opinion, a mistake), and the older groups prefer Cosby. The leading reason, I`ve noticed on the thread is "Mencia`s delivery was way better than Cosby`s!!!one!!!" It`s distubring that the current generation finds people acting in a retarded manner funnier than a comedian who delivers in a clean, class-act way. Something appears to be wrong there. That`s my two cents, anyway.

    Umm let`s re-think here. Listen to what they say, "Cosby- College game with 3million w/ a camera ""Hi Mom""
    mencia- Superbowl MVP, Hiseman, anything you want so say?- "I Love you mom" that bit never played cath with you

    rephrased, yes, stolen, no
    That`s a lawyer`s arguement, so say what you want f*ck heads not stolen
