The popularity of Dane Cook is killing comedy
Asheville Citizen-Times - NC, USA - Where is the funny?

For most of my childhood, I wanted to be a stand-up comedian. No, seriously. Then I realized it involved being considered humorous by more than just your brain-dead friends and having the ability to tell jokes that had beginnings, middles and ends.

Then Dane Cook became famous, and I reconsidered my dream.

I’ve ranted on this moron before, but things are getting out of hand. Somehow this dork keeps getting placed in movies and selling out arenas to adoring dorks just like him. The only discernable characteristic of his brand of “comedy” seems to be volume. The louder he

Dane Cook Confident He'll Keep Marathon Comedy Record
National Ledger - Apache Junction, AZ, USA - Dane Cook is confident his marathon stand-up comedy record is going to, well, stand up. That's in spite of the fact that Dave Chappelle broke Cook's three-hour, 50-minute record at L.A.'s Laugh Factory in April last year. Then, after reportedly hearing rumors of Cook's intention to grab the record back, Chappelle added a six-hour, 12-minute run in December, only to have Cook best him with his seven-hour endurance joke-telling spree Jan. 1.

And yet, asked about Chappelle coming back again, Cook says, "It isn't something we went into competitively. If anybody could get up there and entertain people for more than

Dane Cook confident his record will not fall to Chappelle anytime soon
Punchline Magazine - Hackensack, NJ, USA - When asked about the prospect of Dave Chappelle breaking his current seven-hour stand-up comedy record, Dane Cook confidently but respectfully said he wasn’t worried.

“It isn’t something we went into competitively. If anybody could get up there and entertain people for more than seven hours, it would be Dave,” he adds. “But I think the seven hours will probably stand for some time.”

If you’re keeping track: in April of last year, Chappelle beat Cook’s former record of three hours and 50 minutes. Unanswered, Chappelle came back with a six hour, 12-minute performance in December. On Jan. 1, Cook did seven hours.

The Dane Cook Disease: Coming Soon to a Town Near You
Recorder - New Britain, CT, USA - I have listened to or watched every single Dane Cook album, DVD, movie and television special. After hours upon hours of listening to this supposed ‘comedian,’ I have come to an obvious conclusion: The man simply does not live up to the expectations set by his record sales, fans and hype. I realize how loyal the Dane Cook nation is, and I hope that the Cook masses can refrain from physical retribution. Verbal and literary reprisal is acceptable (and encouraged), but I’m not looking for a fist fight.

After much thought and observation I have composed a list of the five
