February proves to be funny when the comedic geniuses of stand-up stars Carlos Mencia, Sinbad and Bill Engvall take center stage inside the Treasure Island Theatre. Mencia starts the laughter February 11-12, Sinbad adds his signature stories February 19, and Engvall continues the hilarity February 25-26.
Mencia began his stand-up career performing at The Laugh Factory during amateur night and quickly rose to superstar status. Buscando Estrellas (the Latino version of “Star Search”) named Mencia “International Comedy Grand Champion,” which opened the door to appearances on television shows including “In Living Color” and “An Evening at the Improv.” In early 2005, “Mind of Mencia” debuted on Comedy Central, which has since become one of the network’s strongest shows, drawing an average 1.5 million viewers. “Mind of Mencia” wrapped its fourth season in late 2008.
Sinbad is best known for his various television and movie appearances in the 1980s and 1990s, including several HBO comedy specials. He is coming back to the small screen, reality style, as a cast member of this season’s “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Sinbad’s comedy features stories more than jokes, basing his show on everyone he meets, everything he’s seen and everything he does.
What began as a shot in the dark at a Texas nightclub quickly launched funnyman Bill Engvall to comedic superstardom. The Galveston native originally aspired to be a teacher when he discovered his gift for making people laugh. Fans and neophytes alike know Engvall from his half-hour sitcom, “The Bill Engvall Show, ” the “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” featuring fellow funny men Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy, and his 1996 “Here’s Your Sign” comedy act.
