Weekend Watch: Carlos Mencia and Three Dog Night
Since Comedy Central canceled “Mind of Mencia” in 2008, the show’s star, Carlos Mencia, has kept a low profile. The comic makes his first regional appearance at 8 p.m. Friday at Dakota Magic Casino, Hankinson, N.D. We’ll see what new jokes the stand-up has up his sleeves, or if he responds to criticism that he’s plagiarized other comedians. Tickets are $30 in advance, $40 the day of the show. (701) 634-3040.
If you’re more into rocking out than laughing out loud, Shooting Star Casino in Mahnomen has a blast from the past 8 p.m. Friday night with the classic rock band Three Dog Night, but tickets are already sold out. (800) 313-7469.
