Comedian Carlos Mencia Squeezes In Visit To Syracuse On His Tour

Bridge Street

If you ain’t laughing, you ain’t living, according to funny man Carlos Mencia. The comedian is in Central New York once again, for one night only performing his hilarious stand up at Destiny USA’s Funny Bone.

It was important for Mencia to make a stop in Syracuse, he’s performed here consecutively for the past 2 years, “I’m pretty much booked for the rest of the year, and I had a weekend in Hartford. So I wasn’t going to be able to come here until next year. So I said ‘let’s do a one-nighter,’ so I’m doing a one-nighter here and one in Albany so I could perform here.”

Menica, loves tacos! So much so he has a show on YouTube called, Taco Love In America. He asks viewers in different cities to tell him where he can find the best Taco. The locals submit their opinions and Mencia heads to the restaurant for a taste.

As a surprise to Mencia, local Mexican restaurant Boom Boom Mex Mex stopped by with four of their tacos. The Honduran born comedian loved the tacos, “This is America, you make everything better,” he said.

Carlos Mencia is performing at the Syracuse Funny Bone, at Destiny USA, for one show only on Wednesday, September 18th, at 7:30pm. Tickets are $47 and can be purchased on

Boom Boom Mex Mex is located at 3263 Howlett Hill Road, Camillus. The restaurant is closing October 20, 2019 and will reopen for Cinco de Mayo. For more information you can call them at 315-673-7166.
