It's a specific style of comedy all right. Basically, it's a Jim Carrey stand-up routine if Jim decided to take out all the jokes.


Now THAT is funny.

Dane Cook's first album was good. His second had some funny moments (ie, The Friend Nobody Likes, Creepy Guy at Work) but it was mostly just filler. And everything he's done since then shows pretty clearly that he ran out of material pretty quickly and has been phoning it in ever since. He hasn't been relevant since 2008 or so. Even the most ardent fanboys like you should be able to admit that.

This, however, did make me regain some respect points for him.


Pretty much this. The first album was new and different and I found myself laughing despite myself; second had some laughs, but they were few and far between; third was "...and that's all you have? No growth, no change in the routine? And your fan base gets even more obnoxious too."

Swedish Chef is funnier than Dane Cook.

/that's a little Scandinavian humor, there
//Dane Cook fans won't find it funny
///that's because they don't know what actual humor is

Icetech3: Although i hate dane cook, perhaps his sitcom was actually good and thats why nbc won't show it.


...or maybe Dane based the character on a real person and "borrowed" so much of the guy's act that NBC thought they'd get sued.

My exposure to Dane Cook has been entirely limited to five minutes of his standup that I watched on youtube, and three minutes in I was already thinking about what it would feel like to repeatedly superkick him in the face while wearing track spikes.

bump: When I was 19, I worked in a lumber yard just outside of Aspen/Snowmass. We'd pull the orders and band them together in the am, then do deliveries in the afternoon. One time, a glue-lam slid off the forklift and, in my zeal to not dent/damage it, I almost crushed my foot with the edge of this heavy piece of lumber slamming down on my toe. In the following days, the injured digit was swollen and began oozing this green/yellowish puss that had a funky odor to it. That odiforous puss was funnier than any Dane Cook routine.

Just sayin'...


Actually, if you stretch that story out just a few more minutes and repeatedly make weird sound effects with your mouth while describing how your foot got crushed, it WOULD be a Dane Cook routine.
