BYT Staff | Nov 30, 2012 | 3:00PM |

Brandon Wetherbee hosts the talk show/podcast You, Me, Them, Everybody at the Wonderland Ballroom in D.C. and in Baltimore, Brooklyn, Chicago and Philadelphia. Listen to it online at He’ll be hosting the three-year anniversary of You, Me, Them, Everybody this Friday at the Wonderland Ballroom with house band Night Rockers, comedy person Adam Friedland, gift expert Michael Foody, advice expert Sara Armour, life expert Jamel Johnson and music from DJ Mikhail Z. (TNT!, D.C.) and Mattie Valentine (Ghost Town Social Club, Portland).

It’s three year anniversary of You, Me, Them, Everybody Live. The first show was on November 30, 2009 at the Hungry Brain in Chicago. Beth Stelling was a guest. She was on “Conan” this summer. The other guest from that show has not been on “Conan.”

SIDENOTE: I love how this video has 208 likes and 86 dislikes. That’s funny. The 86 people that disliked it, or one one weird dude that disliked it 86 times, thinks that his (It’s always dudes) opinion on YouTube clips matters. Like the marketing team behind the video game “Hitman: Absolution” gives a shit what you think about stand up comedy.

The show has been recorded in Chicago, D.C., New York City, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Baltimore and other places with professional sports team. We’ve done it in places without teams but those shows do not count. SPORTS!

Carlos Mencia from Mind of Mencia @ Arlington Cinema N Drafthouse
$30 / $30
Carlos Mencia is undoubtedly one of today’s most popular entertainers and comics. Whether it is man-on-the-street interviews, studio comedy, commercial parodies, nationwide sold-out tours, or films, Mencia demonstrates an extraordinary ability to connect with a wide and diverse audience. Mencia comes from a humble background, born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the 17th of 18 children. His parents sent him to the United States when he was about three months old, where he was raised in Maravilla Projects in Los Angeles, California by his aunt and uncle. In his early teens, Mencia moved back to Honduras because his family wanted him to avoid the destructive gang culture of East Los Angeles. When Mencia later returned to Los Angeles, he showed such educational prowess that he was immediately promoted to the tenth grade. Soon after, he successfully graduated from Garfield High School. Mencia began his career doing stand-up on amateur night. After he found success on the L.A comedy circuit, Mencia was named “International Comedy Grand Champion” from Buscando Estrellas (the Latino version of Star Search). This led to appearances on “In Living Color,” “The Arsenio Hall Show,” “Moesha” and “An Evening at the Improv.” In 1994, he hosted the HBO comedy series “Loco Slam” and in 1998 he hosted “Funny is Funny!” on Galavision. Mencia released a comedy album in 2000 called “Take a Joke, America” that showcased his brand of humor. Mencia continued his journey up the comedy ladder by headlining “The Three Amigos” tour with Freddy Soto and Pablo Francisco in 2002, which sold out in record time around the United States. He was also featured in the independent films, “Outta Time” and “29 Palms” and starred in guest spots on “The Shield” and “The Bernie Mac Show,” among others. In 2002, he received a CableACE Award nomination for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special for his HBO special. That same year, Mencia was featured on “Comedy Central Presents.” Mencia remained busy and after the success of his solo dvd, “Carlos Mencia: Not For The Easily Offended,” “Mind of Mencia” went into development. The show was an instant hit and after the first season, Comedy Central signed Mencia back for his own original stand-up special, “Carlos Mencia: No Strings Attached.” The special was the first Comedy Central Stand-up Special DVD to achieve Platinum sales status. “Mind of Mencia” debuted on Comedy Central in early 2005. It became one of the strongest shows in the network’s history, averaging about 1.5 million total viewers. “Mind of Mencia” was executive produced by Carlos Mencia and Robert Morton (“Late Night with David Letterman”). In the summer of 2007, Mencia starred opposite Ben Stiller and Michelle Monaghan in the Farrelly Brothers’ hit feature film, THE HEARTBREAK KID (DreamWorks). In the fall of that year Mencia headlined a nationwide comedy tour titled “Carlos Mencia Live Presented by Bud Light.” The highly anticipated tour brought Mencia face-to-face with his fans from September 2007 through December 2007. Shortly thereafter, Mencia taped a new comedy special for Comedy Central, “Carlos Mencia: Performance Enhanced,” that aired in May 2008. Since 2007, every holiday season Mencia has embarked on a USO Tour to the Persian Gulf to entertain the troops serving overseas. For his 2008 trip, Mencia visited Kuwait to host “Operation MySpace,” an exclusive concert for American Troops in the Middle East alongside Jessica Simpson and The Pussycat Dolls. The special aired on FX in April 2008. Mencia’s 2009 USO tour had stops in Turkey, Kirkuk, Baghdad, Qatar, Afghanistan, and many other countries. In July 2008, Mencia began his tour, “At Close Range” at Red Rock Amphitheatre in Colorado. The tour was sponsored by Bud Light and co-promoted by Icon Entertainment and Live Nation. Larger than all of his previous tours, Mencia performed in 80 cities across the country. In the summer of 2009, he kicked off a nationwide comedy tour entitled “The Administration of Laughter” which brought him to excited audiences all around the country. In March 2010, Mencia starred in the family comedy OUR FAMILY WEDDING (FOX Searchlight) alongside America Ferrara and Forrest Whitaker. In the last couple years, Mencia chose to go back to his comedic roots, performing at a number of comedy stores throughout the country – allowing him to share his newest material with smaller and more intimate audiences.

I lost track of the show count over a year ago, once we hit 100. So we’ve done a lot of this. It’s neat.

You know what else is neat? Erotic.

Not erotic film or cinema, but the word. Erotic. Erotica sounds like you have to be between 42 and 54 to enjoy people doing stuff in/around stuff, but the word erotic just sounds funny.

-What did you get your stepmom for the holidays?
-Some erotica books. My stepmom enjoys reading erotica.
-Yes. Stepmoms do enjoy erotica. That is a very nice gift.

-What did you get your stepmom for the holidays?
-A book.
-What kind of book?
-An erotic book.

See? The word erotic is the best/funniest word in the English language. Unless you work in an office and Google (FUCK YOU BING!!! Sorry, Bing. I meant Bing.) Image search ‘erotic’ with Safe Search turned off. I just did that. It was not erotic. It was father-less.

I’ve been working on tonight’s show for a few weeks. We have a special music act, Mikhail Z. (TNT!, D.C.) and Mattie Valentine (Ghost Town Social Club, Portland) will DJ, a special poster by Ned Drummond was made and there are surprises for the audience.

I should be working on polishing my monologue and preparing more guest questions, but all I can think of is my gravestone. I want my gravestone to read “An Erotic Life.”

Hahahahaha! Erotic!

We’re going to have an erotic anniversary show. Hahaha! I’m literally LOL’ing about the word erotic because YOLO.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful night.

    I would like to express appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this type of incident. Right after researching through the internet and getting advice which were not beneficial, I figured my entire life was gone. Being alive devoid of the strategies to the issues you’ve solved by way of this write-up is a critical case, as well as the ones that would have in a wrong way affected my career if I had not encountered your web page. Your main skills and kindness in taking care of all things was crucial. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a subject like this. It’s possible to at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for this professional and amazing help. I will not be reluctant to suggest your web site to anybody who will need tips on this area.

    Absolutely amazing! I was thinking with regards to exactly this last evening, and I just stumbled through to it! – July 4. Statistics show that we lose more fools on this day than in all the other days of the year put together. This proves, by the number left in stock, that one fourth of July per year is now inadequate, the country has grown so. Mark Twain 1835 1910
