Carlos Mencia lost 70 pounds, has a new standup special




You probably haven't seen a lot of Carlos Mencia since his Comedy Central show Mind of Mencia was canceled, and with good reason: There's a lot less of Carlos to see these days. Like 70 pounds less. But that's okay, because this weekend's new special will let you can see how much smaller and older-looking he is.

"A lot of stuff in this new special is about why I am the way I am," Mencia told Extra. "I started going to therapy, losing weight, being introspective." He also told the show his attitude has changed more than his eating habits. "I'm not the angry dude I used to be. 'Cause you can't be angry in a Mercedes."

New Territory will be on Sunday night at 10, but don't worry, there will be plenty o reruns if you missed it. And judging from that weight loss, you may end up changing the channel because you don't know who it is.
