I love Dane Cook. The only point I could see that was valid is his stuff is a bit similar to Louis cks. Lack of punchline is a rubbish argument. I prefer comedians who just go off on a story. Like Billy Connolly. Legend.

5- He (probably) steals jokes

"Probably"? Fantastic job of crippling the point he`s attempting to make before he`s even had a chance to state it.

4- Lack of respect for other comedians

I couldn`t possibly care less if Robert Klein, the retarded goatboy from SNL, and David Cross don`t like him. Why the hell should I? I like/dislike based on my OWN opinions. Grats on being a tool though.

3- Dane Cook "Superfans"

If you don`t want the fans "picking fights" with you, then maybe you shouldn`t walk up to the fans and say poo like, "I just don`t think he`s that funny", and whine about it when they stand up for their own opinions. Douche.

2- No punchlines

If I wanted that form of comedy, I`d buy an F`ing jokebook. Few comedians use the standard punchline formula on stage. Get over it.

1- No relevance or longevity

"Catalog of classics"? I know I, for one, am definitely looking forward to Cheaper by the Dozen 3 with bated breat

Yeah, Dane Cook is not funny.

I hate Robin Williams way more though, but I can`t stand the constant mugging both of them do. That same smarmy kinda face. . .makes me wanna put fist through computer.

hmm pretty weak list. its like someone wanting to write reasons why they hate dane cook. but didnt spend much time or effort into their list.. when i got to the end firt thing that came to mind was...." was that it?" i could come up with a better list and i LIKE the guy! anyways it doesnt really matter what i say because there seems to be alot of dane cook haters. i cant change that. maybe there are people you really like, i might hate their guts?! maybe.. keep an open mind. thats why there are different types of comedians, different flavours of ice cream and different brands of tampons.

AGH. I hate Dane Cook. A lot a lot.

Garbage comedian with piles of mindless idiots for the most part as fans. Sadly though, because 3/4 of the population consists of idiots, he maintains a large fan base.

Almost as bad as the dummy guy.

farquaadhnch: Brian Regan Is funnier than Dane Cook.

I agree to that. I don`t like him that much. He has some funny material but the rest is just ways to get attention. Sex... oooo Swearing...ooo

Demetri Martin and Brian Regan are funnier than him.

Finally someone puts into words why I dislike him so much. There are many funnier and more talented comics out there to listen to so do your self a favor and go out and listen to comics like , George Carlin , Chris Rock , Lee Evans ,Gabriel Iglesias and Lewis Black instead of Dane Cook.

The reason why I hate Dane Cook is because HE IS NOT FUNNY AT ALL. The only mildly amusing "joke" he`s ever told was that one about the weird co-worker. I can NOT see why he`s famous, and even more so why he has annoying-ass superfans.

just pointing out the obviouse but reason 3 when he says that the super fans pick fights

Me: I just don`t think he`s that funny.
Fan: Whatever man he`s hilarious.
Me: I don`t think he is hilarious at all. He`s just loud to me sometimes.
Fan: You don`t like him because he is famous.
Me: No I DON`T! I just like other comedians better. Their material is stronger.
Fan: Psh. drat you. (Fan sticks up super finger)
drat me for having an opinion and listening to other comics. Geez.

he could have ended it after the whatever man he`s hilarious part and just said "well we both have our opinions."

From encyclopediadramatica:

Dane Cook made himself famous on the interbutts through his MySpace which now has over two million "friends". This alone launched his superstar "comedy" career. As such, he is the most successful attention whore the Informationweb Supernetwork has ever created.

Making a video about getting 2 million friends? If you think that this is a notable life accomplishment, then you should kill yourself.

lol

I really like how people hate Dane Cook because he has jokes that are on the same topic as a joke by other comedians (doesn`t every comedian have a joke that`s on the same topic as a joke by another comedian? If not, it would be impossible to get material.) and because he has a different comedy style as they`re used to. They just can`t get over the fact that he`s different, and is very successful without using a regular comic style, so they find reasons to hate him, like the joke stealing.

He can be funny sometimes, in small doses.

My favorite comedian at the moment is Brian Regan.

Dane`s a silly bitch. I`ve wanted to hate him ever since 16 year old girls started Sunday morning worship services for him. But after watching his latest "Live at Maddison Square Garden" set and laughing my lunch out, I`ve decided to stop trying.

Dane Cook isn`t that horrible of a comedian in my opinion, he`s just not that great.

I;d take Louis Black any day over him.

ive never liked him. i watched a old dane cook thing on comedy central a few night ago, he looked at least a few years younger. i laughed but not because it was funny. i laughed because he was talking about wanting to be a snake and have venom... the kind of laugh you supers win you see a retard fall down.

Talpa: Groogle sounds like a Lame Cook SuperFan.

And you sound like your father is your brother. I never watched the guy not even the first time I heard he was ripping off other comedians. Maybe I just dont care about comedy as much as you do.

If Dane Cook sucks it`s because he rips comedians who sucks too. Think about it, if those comedians would be so good they would make it so their jokes just can`t be reworded and unsed in different situations.

As for the arguments the guy who made that list presented they`re pretty weak in my opinion. If a joke deserve credits then it can`t be stolen... most of the jokes Dane Cook stoled are just sounds... lame jokes that are not even funny. The lack of respect is just a bunch of recordings of Dane Cook glued together totally out of context. A lot of people got superfans today ( Celine Dion, The Spice Girls, Madona, Britney Spears... oops, she did it again ) it`s not really that important, you just need to forget about the hype and just try to enjoy the artists for what they provide. If you say Dane Cook has no punchlines then you`re saying Michel Courtemanche has no punchlines.

I don`t like him, not because he rarely uses punchlines(George Lopez doesn`t use any either) but because at times it seems as if he`s not even telling a joke or a story he`s just running around on stage being loud.
Give me Pryor, Carlin, Louis C.k., and even Gilbert Gottfried(check out Gilbert Gottfried`s dirty jokes) any day over this guy.
I won`t hate on anybody that enjoys him.
Just don`t hate on me for disliking him.

Fine points yes, but when Mr. Cook tells a joke, he`s not JUST telling a joke. He`s telling a story. The entirety of the joke is contained throughout the story. He draws you in on a personal level, and invites self-mockery. He`s a riot. =D

Eh, that was a pretty weak list full generalizations and not very many facts. I really like Dane Cook; I can see why other people don`t, though. As for the whole "punchline" thing...since when did every joke have to follow the same formula?

I still think he`s funny. Maybe he doesn`t have punchlines to his jokes, but he gives me a chuckle every now and then and that`s fine with me.
