Dane cook is a hack who steals 60% of his act from other comics. His own material is watered down to appeal to the lowest common denominator. Here is a link to his wikipedia entry, check out the bit on plagarism. I can't wait for this turds 15 minutes to be up. People are beginning to get wise to his schtick.

OK, to everyone who is referring to "HACK" as a tagging term. its NOT a tagging term. Hack is a term us comics use to describe a comic who is NOT original. someone who cant come up with material concepts on their own and have to use mundane ideas. i know cook and know he has been accused of it, but i think he is a genius in his own right and it was probably some envious comic who tagged up his sign.

Dane Cook is a total hack who surrounds himself with people less-funny than himself to appear better. Just because you can do a handstand onstage does not make you funny.

Dane Cook sucks. If you really listen to his jokes, they are lame. All he does is jump around like a ten year old on meth, and point out things like how guys like to watch girls give them oral. Patton Oswalt, the late Mitch Hedberg, Brian Posein, Sarah Silverman,Dave Attel all crap out giant turds that are funnier than his best material. His type of comedy is made for people that watch t.v. shows like A.I., and dancing with the stars. Did anyone see 5mins. of tourgasm? It was soooo bad. Him and bunch of dumb ass bostonians that think they are funny go around the country trying to squeeze laughs out of high schoolers and college freshman. Dane Cook, Carlos Mencia and Vince Vaughn should create a tour and name it " We are the bottom of the barrel when it comes to stand-up, but you dumb f*#&'s will still pay to see it because, well you are dumb fuxs.

I was at the Laugh Factory about a month or so ago when Dane Cook made a guest appearance. He was way funnier than Bob Saget and John Garland from Curb Your Enthusiam. Garland was pathetic.

Dane Cook also introduced me to Dane!!!
