Comic Carlos Mencia to host Creative Arts Emmy Awards

Carlos Mencia and his feisty brand of humor will be front and center next month at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
The comic, who stars in Comedy Central's "Mind of Mencia," has been tapped to host the Sept. 8 event, the show's executive producers, John Moffitt and Lee Miller, announced Monday.
"Carlos will keep everyone in the audience on the edge of his or her seat _ especially the censor. We're thrilled to work with him," said the show's producer, Spike Jones Jr., in a statement.
Emmys in 75 categories, including art direction, costume design, makeup and guest acting, will be handed out during the ceremony at the Shrine Auditorium here.
The show is slated to air Sept. 15 as a two-hour special on the E! cable channel, a day before the Primetime Emmy Awards are broadcast live on Fox.
