I personally dont find Louis Ck to be all that funny, but find Dane Cooks stand up to be quite entertaining!
For Mencia... i think when you have a comedian like Bill Cosby, who has an entire premise, story and punchline to a joke... i mean, that joke IS bill cosby, that joke defines Cosby's humor... and to have this piece of shit Mencia, STEAL that joke... it was just low... and i mean, it is just blatent.. you get material from your life... Mencia has no kids... how could he have possibly thought that joke up??
(the joke in brief is, a father teaches his son how to catch a football, how to drive a car... the son goes to school, gets a scholarship to college, goes to the NFL, and when he wins the super bowl, the camera crews rush to him and what does he say "Hi Mom")! that IS Bill Cosby!
i dont htink the Latuino thing plays into it... i just think that he has ripped off SO many people in his career, and he has gotten FAME and FORTUNE off of the talent of OTHERS, lesser known people that deserve that talent.. that people lIke Joe Rogen had to call him out. Dont get me wrong, i think Joe Rogen sucks ass also.. but it is what it is! Obviously itr hasnt affected Mencia much, as his show is still on comedy central!
Well, I think Cook is terribly unfunny and so is Denis Leary and Bill Hicks too now that you mention it. In fact, even Bill Hicks was accused by Sam Kenison of stealing jokes. Louis C.K., on the other hand is fucking hilarious! "Suck a bag of dicks," is all I have to say. That joke premise alone is infinitely funnier than Cook's entire routine. And just to clear something up, Louis C.K. is not the only one that Cook has stolen from, lets be real.
As for Bill Cosby, well, he happens to be one of my favorite comedians of all time and I know "Bill Cosby: Himself" very well. And to be honest, it makes me sick that, what did you call him? Oh yes, "piece of shit" Mencia! It makes me sick that this piece of shit Mencia has stolen Cosby's joke, even if it was a weak premise, set up and punchline and probably one of the most forgettable jokes in his special. And even if Cosby himself has admitted stealing a joke and premise from George Carlin, himself, which Carlin never called him on nor made a big stink about. You're right in saying that Mencia is a thief. And yes, in my opinion and many others, he's unfunny. But why does he get so much hate when others have stolen jokes from better comedians also? Why do the others get away with it and he doesn't? And if Rogan is so concerned about the integrity of comedy then why does he not call out Dane Cook and Denis Leary and all the rest of them that steal material? Rogan picks on Mencia because he can get away with it.
