    Default Dane Cook: "The Unfunniest Comic"





    April 1, 2008 -- THERE's nothing amusing about Dane Cook, according to fellow comics and two Boston radio personalities who are about to name him "The Unfunniest Comic" this afternoon.
    WBCN jock Fred Toucher, who co-hosts a talk show with Rich Shertenlieb weekday afternoons in Boston, says Cook is the overwhelming favorite in a tournament patterned after NCAA basketball's March Madness, where he's ahead of Jay Leno, Jeff Foxworthy, Carlos Mencia and Paula Poundstone.
    "We were talking about how people laugh out loud at nonsense and Dane is a good example of that," Toucher told Page Six. "We'd listen to him and at the end of four minutes he'd change subjects, and that was it. We couldn't figure out when the joke was.
    "And he's actually hated. People don't hate others they way they do him. At least Foxworthy panders to rednecks. Dane's stories are so weak you wouldn't want to hear them over lunch."
    Cook, 36, has been accused of stealing jokes by Louis CK, Demetri Martin, Joe Rogan and others. And the big-headed comic is also known for his huge ego and his diva-like demands.
    The star of such movie stinkers as "Employee of the Month" and "Good Luck Chuck" allegedly was also once tossed out of Smith & Wollensky steak house because he was so difficult. "His assistant ordered for him. He got a steak and sent it back three times," said one employee. "The chef was furious. Eventually we told him enough is enough."
    And one insider on the set of the TBS World Series commercials Cook filmed last year said he demanded blocks of tickets for postseason games in return for filming the commercials for free.
    "He doesn't recall ever being to Smith & Wollensky," said Cook's spokeswoman Ina Treciokas. "He did go to Houston's when he was in town a few weeks ago and ordered chicken, which he did not send back. As for the [baseball] campaign, he did it for free. In return, they gave him two tickets to any baseball game over the next three years, and he's been to five games so far." Treciokas added: "He is a triple-platinum artist who's sold 32,000 tickets on his last tour in Boston and 365,545 tickets in 25 cities over the course of the entire tour."

    I agree, this dude's fucking lame. One thing I hate about going to hang out with my guy friends, is they ALWAYS listen to Dane Cook on YouTube and think he's the funniest thing since fart jokes came to light.

    Not to mention, one of them keeps calling him "Dan" Cook and not Dane. I hate some of my friends, lol. But I hate Dane Cook more.

    I actually liked Good Luck Chuck.
    LOL.
    But I don't like his style of comedy. It's not funny to me.
    I have a friend, though, that thinks he is hilarious.

    This is the only thing by Dane Cook that I found to be the funniest thing he's ever done... Which says a lot, because it's not *that* funny.

    I know it's a bunch of Naruto clips, but it's Dane Cook audio...Some YouTube fad, I guess. _

    This made me hungry; I love Houston's grilled chicken salad... I'm drooling right now thinking about having one.

    Interesting. I remember seeing clips of him stage show for a movie trailer and I didn't think it was funny at all. Apparently a lot of people must like him as the place he was performing at was huge. Jay Leno's funny though, not necessarily as a "true" comedian but he is great at his timing especially when he does his little things at the beginning of the show.

    ^^ Yeah, I always enjoy his monologues, when I do catch them. I love his longstanding "Kevin is a pothead" joke.

    I was a huge fan when I saw his 30-minute comedy special years ago. I loved his first album and listened to it endlessly.

    When his second one came out, it was clear something in him changed, because he basically lost his "funny". It was a two-disc album, and the second disc was almost ALL crude sex jokes. Despite what he may believe, not everyone wants to hear his stories about receiving oral sex and spooging.

    I gave him a second chance and watched his HBO special. He's now dead to me.
    I saw a film today, oh boy.

    He used to be funny, and then he just stopped trying. Now his jokes have no punchline.
    Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

    The depth and substance of his jokes are like silly observations, but it's distracted really well by his physical movements and screaming.

    I've never found him funny. Not necessarily unfunny, just bland, no real personality, timing, inflection, or anything at all. I've never understood how he's supposed to be the funniest thing ever.

    Sounds like a lot of untalented "comedians." When all else fails bring out the 'F' bombs and graphic sexual talk. Ever watch Def Jam comedy show? Along those lines, I guess it's supposed to be "funny."
