Carlos Mencia Possibly Thief, Definitely Shitty Comic

So this clip of Carlos Mencia maybe possibly ripping off Bill Cosby has been making the rounds. It's also worth mentioning that the bit also bears some similarities with a Chris Rock bit from "Bigger and Blacker", one of the most famous comedy specials of all time:
Everybody takes Daddy for granted. Just listen to the radio: Everything's "Mama. Dear Mama. Always loved my Mama. Mama Mama Mama."
What's the Daddy song? "Papa was a Rollin' Stone." Nobody gives a fuck. Nobody appreciates Daddy. Now, Mama's got the roughest job, l ain't gonna front. But at least people appreciate Mama. Nobody ever tells Daddy shit. Nobody ever says, "Hey, Daddy, thanks for knocking out this rent." "Hey, Daddy, l sure love this hot water." "Hey, Daddy, this is easy to read with all this light."
So maybe Mencia's a thief, maybe not, I think the important thing to take from his clip is the fact that he has to scream at the top of his lungs, run around the stage, and practically throw a chair at the audience so that they know he's made a joke.
