Spanish

Si hay algo en lo que los críticos y los fanáticos pueden estar de acuerdo es en que la comedia de Carlos Mencia no rehúye lo político, y esta política no es ni “correcta” ni endulzada, y nadie en la audiencia se escapa de ser sujeto de alguna broma. En una época donde se mantiene la paz siendo “políticamente correcto” (un movimiento esencialmente inclinado a atribuir atenciones deliberadas a un sinfín de individuos sensibles al lenguaje), Carlos Mencia no se ha visto tentado ni convencido todavía de diluir sus juegos verbales.

English

If there’s one thing that critics and fans alike can agree with, it is that Carlos Mencia’s comedy does not shy away from the political, and this politic is often neither “correct” nor sugarcoated, oftentimes leaving anybody in his audience vulnerable to being the pun of a joke. In an age of maintaining the peace by “keeping things PC” (essentially a movement towards attributing a purposeful attentiveness to a plethora of individual sensitivities via language), Carlos Mencia has not been tempted or convinced quite yet to euphemize his verbal shenanigans.
