"Carlos Mencia: Performance Enhanced" is presented in 1.33:1 full screen. This is a stand-up special, so visual quality isn't the most important thing here. Still, despite some edge halos and noise, the transfer is more than decent. Mencia's fleshtone seems accurate, and color saturation - which really amounts to his red shirt and that gaudy purple background - look pretty good. Other than that though, not much to say here.

 

An English Stereo track is the only game in town. There's not much to say here either. Mancia is clear and easy to hear, while the audience laughter fills in often (which, however, does sound a bit hollowed out). Fidelity is high, though. In all, this track is probably what you expect. 

English closed captions through your TV are also included.

 

Two other Mencia appearances are included. First up is Carlos's segment on MTV's Cribs, where the comic shows off his Los Angeles home - complete with motorcycles, pool and home theater. There's also a "Dean Carlos" segment from his Comedy Central show, "Mind Of Mencia."

 

If you're a fan of the comedic stylings of Carlos Mencia, then this stand-up set is worth looking into. The special looks and sounds decent, and the supplements give more Mencia - and really, plugs for other Viacom-owned shows. I guess a rental would suffice for casual Mencia fans, or those only familiar with his show and not his stand-up routines.
