How did Dane Cook get on a website about comedians?

I’ve given him so many chances to be funny. But he hasn’t. He laughs at his jokes more than anyone else. His joke was about how his friend got mad about a missing freeze pop. Really? He is just so awful.

Dane had promise early in his career. He has a very good delivery and a unique voice, but since his first Comedy Central Present special he has completely lost his ability to write and polish new material.

With each passing special, Dane further loses touch with his ability to determine which of his bits are funny, resulting in an unwatchable barrage of just noise, devoid of humor.

Fame has so completely destroyed his ability to tell when he’s not being funny, he once stayed on stage at the Laugh Factory for 8 hours! Can you imagine the arrogance of ANY comic to think they can do that and be funny the whole time? It takes comics MONTHS of constant trial and error just to work out a new 20 minutes and he thinks he can just wing 8 hours. Dreadful.

not too great. he was better when he was barely known. i thought i was the only who thought this too. it’s great to see that people know what real comedy is. but his animations and delivery is pretty awesome i have to admit.

By far, the most over-rated comic of this decade. He followed the classic flow of the American celebrity- come quickly out of relative obscurity, reach a crest of tremendous fame, and then fall fast and hard out of style, all the while continuing to crank out his product. Highly unoriginal, and obviously did a little more than ‘borrow’ from fellow funny-man Louis C.K. Very fad-ish.

This isn’t comedy it’s just story time with a guy who yells to much!!!

Dane is the equivalent of a rock band that can’t play well but puts on a decent show and has lots of fans.  Great energetic performer but his act lies on the annoying side and his material is rarely interesting though he can turn some into funny bits.

He is ONE OF THE WORST COMEDIANS OUT THERE. HE IS DENIABLE IN ALL WAYS! He is just a knock off of Nick Swardson (who is undeniable)  Dane Cook is just too animated to be in comedy. Go back to preschool Dane Cook.

He is the comedian everyone get’s into that has never been into stand up comedy before. He could be the gateway for average people who don’t know much about stand up comedy to get into other more talented comedians but Dane Cook just hype.

Overrated! Overrated!

Dane is average. He is very likable and charismatic but his material is pretty weak most of the time. He has a nice way of painting a picture, and he is animated in his story telling, but it is obvious he is trying to be cool. I would see him in person again for the entertainment value, but i would wait a year or two between shows for him to develop material.

Unoriginal, with very sloppy writing that typically fails to start a joke narrative, nevermind finish it strong. Delivery includes much phrase repetition with varying enunciations, like he’s constantly trying to create catch-phrases (fancy that). His popularity is due primarily to his devout “myspacing” when he started out. Accusations of joke stealing are the last nail in the coffin.

The first time I ever heard him I felt like I had a new friend.

Dane Cook is a fad, his fans love him, and most critics don’t.  And because of his enormous college-aged fan-base, he’s a bigger target of hate.

I have to give credit where it is due.  Dane Cook has some of the best, most energetic delivery in stand-up today.  His material on the other hand is severely lacking.  The joke listed on this page is about Burger King.  The only thing funny about it, is the way Dane Cook delivers it. 

Cheap laughs are still laughs, and Dane is laughing to the bank, so props to him.
