Here's an epilogue to my post about the tiff between Joe Rogan and Carlos Mencia that took place on stage at The Comedy Store a few days ago.
In a nutshell: Rogan and other comedians have been accusing Mencia of stealing material for some time, and the two men had a battle of words on stage with Rogan (and a couple other comedians) accusing Mencia of stealing material, and Mencia denying it.
On his Web site, Rogan wrote that he received a call from Comedy Store owner Mitzi Shore (mother of Pauly Shore), asking him to explain what had happened. Later, he received a call from the club's manager telling him he might want to take a break from the club because of the tension between him and Mencia. He also told Rogan they weren't happy about him putting the video of the fight on the internet. Bottom line: Rogan has been banned from The Comedy Store, and Mencia will continue to perform there.
If you're like me and don't tune into watch David Letterman much anymore, I've placed the video of Bill O'Reilly's latest appearance on The Late Show after the jump. I have no interest in taking sides in this particular debate, but I think what is clear is that as angry or annoyed as Dave seems, he loves to have someone on like O'Reilly who he can argue with rather than just lob softballs at some starlet who is there to promote her next movie. Dave's been doing this for far too long and he lives for these moments. O'Reilly isn't one to back down from a challenge, either, and despite their disagreements, the two of them are actually a perfect match. Unfortunately, the clip gets cut off at the end, and I couldn't find another one on YouTube. If anyone knows where a full clip can be found, let me know and I'll replace this one.
Full clip here. Thanks, Kristie.
