We join with family, friends and fans in mourning the tragic loss of one of the Comedy Central family, comedian Freddy Soto. Freddy passed away on July 10th at the age of 35. From a memorial website for Freddy:

"Freddy passed away unexpectedly last Sunday. Only one night before, he triumphantly left the stage of the Laugh Factory to a raucous, standing ovation. No cause of death has been announced, and we join his family, and wide circle of friends, in mourning his untimely passing.

Those of us that knew and worked with Freddy for much of these past 13 years are devastated, as Freddy was very much a comedian on the verge. Freddy's work on TV, in films, on stage and all over the country gave us many laughs, many highs, and he will be missed so dearly. His "Three Amigos" tour with Carlos Mencia & Pablo Francisco, and nationwide tour opening for Marc Anthony, cemented his status as a tour de force comedian to be reckoned with."

We agree. He will be missed.

Can't get enough of Carlos Mencia on his new show? Here are links to exclusive video on our site:

Mencia Minute: Carlos goes off on popular culture

Animal Wrongs: Carlos says don't put your kids on the lunch tray.

The New Batman: Carlos prefers his Batman without nipples, thank you very much.

Jacko, Part 1: Carlos has a message for the Jackson jury.

Jacko, Part 2: The Jackson verdict gives Carlos an idea…

Potheads: Carlos has something to say about medical marijuana.

Reality Show Rants: Carlos reveals the secrets of reality show casting.

Ask Carlos: a new weekly feature where Carlos answers questions after the show. (But there will be no crying or hugging – this ain't Oprah!)

18 Years of Comedy: Carlos tells how he conned Comedy Central into giving him his own show.

From: Lt. Jim Dangle, RSD.

Apparently this week, the VULTURES at the Comedy Central Channel are airing another episode of HEROES ON PATROL! (They still insist on calling it Reno 911!, which is a ridiculous name).

I'd like to nip any controversy in the bud — the incident involving myself, Travis Junior, Garcia, and the Bachelorettes with the enormous dildo — was filmed in a way that makes it look like our deputies were somehow encouraging the inappropriate behavior and/or nudity.

This is hardly the case. Our deputies work hard day and night to keep Reno relatively safe. That's what we do. Period, end of story.

It's not our job to get every single dildo off the streets — and frankly, I'm not sure why we'd even want to.

God Bless America,

Lt. Jim Dangle
