    Dane Cook funny?

    I'm in college so I deal with a lot of people who worship this unfunny hack. Am I the only one who can't understand why people think he's funny? He's good at presenting stories but his material is just appallingly mediocre for someone so famous. I'm living in a country where this guy and Carlos Mencia are among the top two comedians. This is really sad.

    ps beaner lol

    Not funny at all for me.

    In fact, most of the new comics these days aren't funny at all for me.

    Never heard of him. I still think George Carlin is funny.

    Dane Cook and Carlos Mencia are colorful story tellers. While I can laugh at either, its more of a "oh hey yea I heard this before" type laugh if that makes sense.

    And whats his face from Fear Factor is NOT funny, no clue where he came from with all this angst towards Cook or Mencia.

    Joe Rogan? From what I've heard and read, basically, he accused both Carlos Mencia and Dane Cook of plagiarizing material from other comedians.

    When I was about 7 or 8, I found him entertaining on "Mork and Mindy", but as I've gotten older, his schtick just annoys me, whether it's a standup routine or if he's giving an interview.

    Not a fan of Cook. Just not very funny to me. I saw Carlin live about a month ago; still amazingly funny and thought-provoking and relevant. A few months ago I saw the best live stand-up perfomance I've ever seen: Bob Saget. He murdered the crowd of 1,200 in a way that I've never witnessed first hand.
