If you've ever watched Comedy Central, it's unlikely you've missed Carlos Mencia's show "Mind of Mencia." This weekend, get off your couch and see him live at the Hartford Funny Bone, where he will perform his politically driven stand-up. You'll still be able to sit back and laugh, as Mencia covers topics that will include social class, race, criminal justice and culture. Only you'll have to wear pants.
July 19-21, 7:30 p.m., July 20-21, 10 p.m., $30, Hartford Funny Bone, 194 Buckland Hills Drive, Suite #1054, Manchester, (860) 432-8600, funnybonecentral.com.
