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."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.
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."
