Carlos Mencia

Comedy Is HARDER

When You Lose the Fat

Carlos Mencia knows that fat is funny -- and dropping 70 lbs can be a career killer for a comedian -- but this weekend, the comic found a way to make skinny work ... with the help of a little person.

A slimmed-down Mencia was telling us all about the weight loss at The Improv in L.A. ... when his former "Mind of Mencia" co-star Little Brad stopped by.

Mencia -- pointing to his pal -- told us, "We wear the same size shirt" ... adding, "I'll show you that I fit in a dwarf shirt now." The two proceeded to swap tops ... right in the middle of the street.

He added, "I don't know if this is cool or pathetic." Check out the footage -- you be the judge.

I guess when you steal most of your jokes it easy to find time to work out.

Comedy has always been hard for this guy because there isn't one funny thing that comes out of him.
He steals jokes and acts like he's hispanic when he is not.
The funniest joke this guy has is his career.

Ned wasn't funny when he was fat, and Ned won't be funny skinny either, no matter how many jokes he steals.

What he means is comedy is harder when you quit stealing jokes. The fight between him and Joe Rogan was amazing.

It's great that he lost the weight but he was never funny even when poking fun at his weight.


The same old fat jokes get old very quick.

Comedy is also harder when you have to write your own material.
