A revealing and surprising interview with comedian Carlos Mencia. Both news hole and 59 minute versions are provided.

Carlos-mencia_small Carlos Mencia is a major name in comedy. He's also one of the most reviled characters in the business among other comics. So, naturally, Marc wants to find out what makes him tick, what it feels like to be so controversial, and what he says in his own defense. This may take a while. Then Marc speaks with comics who have worked very closely with Carlos -- Willie Barcena and Steve Trevino -- and then gets Carlos to sit back down for a follow up discussion. Questions will get answered. Opinions will get shaped. Comedians will get serious.

best bit

Essence of the interview:
Mencia, "I know how people work."
Maron, "You know it too well, I think."

Mencia comes off like a clincialy diagnosable narcissist.
