I don't know what the situation was. I think he got caught up with some illegals on accident or something. Im not really sure.
But even so, it wasnt a main subject on the show , as far as Ive seen. It was more based around family life.

Are we talking about the same episode?
I did hear George Mention on how him and Angies dad helped get her uncle into the U.S. I've never seen the episode though.

I disagree love Chappelle but love Lopez also.
Two diff types of formats/shows.

IMO both great. Just different.

------------

Mencia is NOT Mexican he plays it but he isn't. He is from Honduras . I guess you could say 1/2 Mexican.

His real name was Ned Mencia born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras . His mom Is Mexican but his father is Honduran and he was born in Honduras.


When you live in South Florida you learn these impt tid bits of info lol.

He's still Latino. I dont like Joe Rogan at all. Mencia isn't horribly funny, but Joe Rogan is a real hack. Its like he was relying on calling out Mencia to even get noticed.

I'd rather eat some of those giant roaches on Fear Factor than sitting through one of his acts.

Well I think it was his father or mother who is Messican. He also comes from a family of 18 kids.
