Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor will present Carlos Mencia on Monday at 8 p.m. as part of its Comedy Club series. A performance at an open mike night at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles launched Mr. Mencia on the path to a successful stand-up career, a popular series called “Mind of Mencia” on Comedy Central, comedy specials on HBO and Comedy Central, and film and television appearances.
Born in Honduras as the 17th of 18 children, Mr. Mencia was raised in the Maravilla Projects in Los Angeles. His comedy is often political and engages issues of race, culture, criminal justice, and social class. He has recently returned to his stand-up roots, touring the country with his newest material. Tickets are $69 to $89 and are available at the box office or baystreet.org.
