Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Carlos Mencia, the comedian who headlines this show, often relies on racist jokes that poke fun at his own Hispanic heritage. He comes across as mean and uninteresting, and his one-liners are raunchy and inane. Some sketches are very violent, but it's not a constant theme.
Is It Any Good?
While adults may be able to watch Mind of Mencia with bemused detachment, the jokes and skits are too inane and nasty for impressionable youngsters. Only mature teens should tune in, if they're even interested.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
