AverageAmericanGuy: The difference between Dennis Leary stealing from Bill Hicks and Dane Cooke stealing from Louis CK is that Dennis stole jokes from an unfunny comic and made them funny while Dane stole jokes from a funny comic and made them unfunny.


They both got big around the same time and had the same social circles. However, no one has sufficient proof that Leary was taking Hicks's material.

brianbankerus: Neondistraction: Sorry cracked, but I'd rather watch a half hour of Jeff Dunham than 5 minutes of Dane Cook.

And I don't care if Fall Out Boy are the most talented band of the decade (hint: they aren't), but if your hairstyle can be described as 'flock of seagulls without the hair gel/plaster of paris' you deserve whatever ridicule you get.

... Jeff Dunham being a no-talent hack who's been telling the same jokes for 20 years.


I totally agree with you. That's how much I don't like Dane Cook.

Gordon Bennett: [wa2.cdn.3news.co.nz image 600x400]

Neil Lennon


doesn't deserve death threats, but he is a 24-carat prat at the best of times.

And I'd have thought the Barry Bonds hate was beyond dispute though, even if Lance Armstrong has surpassed him.

plushpuppy: I know this is troll and yet are you farking kidding me, Shia Lebouf cannot act and he would be perfect is an insult to perfection and no one should play Yorrick because Hollywood would fark it up and take out all the best parts. See
Even though we mainly follow Yorrick around, every character is a women(besides the monkey, flashbacks, the baby boy and Yorrick, possibly also male astronauts, has been a while since I read the series) I cannot imagine Hollywood making a movie where almost every single roll is a female role. See The Extraordinary League of Gentlemen as to how they would fark it up. I think Hollywood would rather make a Maus movie.


It was almost greenlighted with Joel Silver directing, as a trilogy. (You can't do this as a single movie; too much there.) Are you saying that there aren't enough good actresses to fill the roles? That sounds a little sexist, actually.

And Shia was on the shortlist to star. Okay, maybe "perfect" was a bit too harsh, but I wasn't all up in arms just because he was going to star.

ZeroCorpse: Jeff Dunham IS worse than Dane Cook. At least Cook isn't a race-baiting sellout. The guy is actually talented, but sometime after 9/11 he decided to aim for the paranoid, xenophobic, redneck, racist crowd and he did it subtly at first, and then overtly, and finally just came out and said he'd suck their dicks for money.


My problem with Jeff Dunham is that I ask people why he's funny and, 10 times out of 10, I get "What? You haven't heard that 'I KEEEL YOU' joke?" Yes, I've heard it. No, it's not funny. It's on par with saying that I don't know Larry the Cable Guy is funny because I haven't heard "Git 'er Done". (Definitely a comedian I would have on a DIAF shortlist.)

Frankly, I don't get puppet humor. I think it's farking stupid and lame and belongs in the 50's. No, don't get out a goddamn guitar and start singing songs, either. Just get up on stage without any props and tell some farking jokes.

halB: And then she realized "Wow, gay people love my stuff. Let me pander to them IN EVERY STINKING SINGLE THERE IS."

Frankly, I find it insulting to gay people. They liked her before she started pandering. They liked her not because she talked about being "born this way" but because she just had fun.


Have you heard the kind of dance music gays listen to? Wow, it is bad. Imagine the worst possible house music you've ever heard, and then give it to some retarded monkey to DJ. There's a category for it: "Gay Techno".

(Sorry, gays, but generally speaking, your taste in music is horrible. And Cher sucks.)

I've heard from quite a few sources that Adam Sandler is just about the nicest person you could ever hope to meet. Sure, he plays the same "loveable goofball" character in just about every movie he's ever made, but as far as I can tell that's just because he actually is a loveable goofball.

And he was awesome when he took a somewhat serious role in Punch Drunk Love.

KingoftheCheese: I feel a list of unfairly disliked celebrities should always have the name Chad Kroeger on it. Ever since Nickleback came on the scene in 2001, people have needlessly felt that his musical talent should be questioned and rebuked. When you are with your buddies having a few Natty Lites and a Nickleback song starts jamming on your favorite Rock Hits of the 80s, 90s, and Today station, why do you all suddenly feel the need to shift the conversation towards how much of a group of no talent cock bags Chad and the guys are? Is it because you know you will never be that rich and famous? Or is it that you wish your High School garage band had actually made more than $15 at a bar and then broke up?

Maybe next time you decide to open your mouth about his "lack of talent", you should remember that Nickleback is the second best selling foreign act in America. Second only to The Beatles.

And in my humble opinion, The Beatles keep pretty damn good company.


Your gushing a little more than I would but I don't get the hate either. They make a decent stripper song even if their sentimental stuff is garbage and in every interview I've seen Chad pretty much admits he started a band to get laid and have fun and just got really farking lucky. If he tried to act like he was some misunderstood genius I could really see the hate.

2words1finger: Um no, people hate Dane Cook because he's a freaking douchebag. It doesn't have anything to do with him stealing jokes, because literally EVERY comic does that.


Same with Barry Bonds. We forgave alot of baseball players who did as much roiding up and lying about it as Barry . He is hated and shunned for decades of being a douchebag to fans his entire carreer

I disagree--I think he stole the good jokes from Bill Hicks that Bill Hicks was already telling well. Hicks did have his ups and downs, though.


But Hicks was trying to make you think more than laugh. Leary made the "Angry Average White Guy" act a little more funny by lightening up on the things that make you go "Hmmm?" He at least developed the act in his own direction and while he stole riffs from Hicks he added his own takes to them along the way.

Hicks was a smarter guy, Leary was a better comedian.
