Dane Cook Cracks Jokes

About 'Batman' Massacre

7/27/2012 8:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Dane Cook
is using the Colorado shooting tragedy as material for his standup act.

Last night, Cook took the stage at the Laugh Factory on Sunset Blvd. and began to talk about "Dark Knight Rises."

In footage, obtained by DailyCaller.com, Cook can be heard saying ...

"So I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into the movie ... And I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the movie is pretty much a piece of crap ... yeah, spoiler alert.”

Cook continued ... “I know that if none of that would have happened, pretty sure that somebody in that theater, about 25 minutes in, realizing it was a piece of crap, was probably like ‘ugh f*cking shoot me.’”

A bunch of people in the crowd laughed ... some people groaned.

For the record, the shooting occurred exactly one week ago ... 12 people were killed and 58 were injured with many people still hospitalized.

The first comedian ALWAYS pays! I'm a comedian, and I wouldn't do it, but somebody will eventually. I do, do the time thing, and wait, maybe others should too? I had my own cable access comedy show {9 yrs} and waited for SNL {they were the first ones, but after much time had passed} to make the first move... the show I did got plenty of laughs, and thankfully, no real criticism.

"..ugh f*cking shoot me" it's never too late. Arrogant white boy. Let's countdown for the obligatory media "apology"

How ironic that an unfunny comedian can call a good movie a piece of crap.


Dane you were unfunny before so you decided to change your hair color and throw on some trendy clothes and that somehow made you popular for 5 mins but you were still unfunny. Then those that actually did like you realized how lame you were and now you've become irrelevant.

this "batman shooting" is being blown way out of proportion, the 15 minutes are up, lets all just try to focus on the kristin and rob situation now... over 310,000 people died in Haiti... a guy got shot in the face in Chicago...

Dane Cook calling any movie a piece of crap is funny...considering all of his great cinematic contributions. How's this guy popular? Even before this, I never understand how people found him funny enough to pay money to see

Not, at all, a funny joke... but he has every right to say it. I expect other comedians to come up with other jokes about this in the coming week (pretty sure their materials will be funnier too.)

Oh, and Dark Knight Rise ain't even close to be a piece of crap. Now, if you wanna see a real stinker, go rent Employe of the Month or Good Luck Chuck - now THOSE films truly suck!

We may cannot all agree on whether the joke was appropriate or inappropriate.

But one thing is a concensus and that's the fact that DANE COOK IS CORNY AS HELL! SHIVERLING UP INTO BALL, CONTORTING YOURSELF, AND MAKE GOBLIN LIKE FACES IS NOT FUNNY, AND NEITHER WAS YOUR JOKE, ARS-HOLE.

Wow, how unpleasing, insensitive and rude to the victims, and their families. Cook, is an annoying, immature prick.

And again to the person who keeps checking the HATE button on everybody's comment. Dude you got issues. you need to tell your mom to get you some help. You are the exact kind of person that would commit this crime. Seriously get some help. Life is to short.

the movie is extremely over-rated... people were just hungry for a batman movie... nolan ****ed it up... batman could have been easily replaced with bruce willis and it could have just been a die hard movie easily... this movie was done gi joe style... just stamp the trademark on it and call it a batman movie... gotham city didn't even look gothic... and batman does all his **** at night, not during the day... and batman retiring after the joker for 8 years? seriously??? movie was super ****ty and cook was dead on.

"I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is and deliberately cross it." -George Carlin

Lighten up people. This tragedy happened and you can't change the fact that it happened. Tragedies happen every day and there are a large number you laugh about that aren't this public but just as serious to someone. He's a comedian. They make jokes about everything. Don't like it, then don't listen or get a ****ing sense of humour.
