WHET Dane Cook?

When I was in college, he was very popular. Everyone thought he was funny and I thought he was hot. I had a friend who looked like him who I think wanted to fuck me.

But anyways, WHET him?

Dane Cook became too popular, and that's when the backlash started. Fellow comedians accused him of plagiarizing their material and it became trendy to dump on him relentlessly. I think that affected him deeply and he scaled back his appearances. Plus, having your business manager brother and sister-in-law embezzle millions from you crushes your soul.

He was previously named to be one of the upcoming Jeopardy! guest hosts, but there's been no mention of him since.

R2, The fact that he HAD millions to embezzle is disturbing.

Well, he was accused of plagiarism because he was plagiarizing, so...

He's painfully unfunny but I've always suspected he has a fat uncut Irish schlong in his pants.

I always got him mixed up with Dax Shepard. Two unfunny obnoxious white guys.

by Anonymousreply 10Last Saturday at 9:47 AM

Carlos Mencia is another comedian who was popular at around the same time, and he too was done in by accusations of plagiarism. I believe Joe Rogan was one of the biggest critics of both Cook and Mencia.

by Anonymousreply 11Last Saturday at 9:54 AM

I never found him funny. His humor was tame and white bread. I want raunchy and unfiltered in comics.

He had a really fast trajectory to stardom, maybe for being one of the few "conventionally attractive" comics, but his 15 minutes were pretty short.

R9 wrong... this kid used to flirt with me constantly and couldn’t keep his hands off me. I just didn’t know how to play it right, and there were always too many people around.

2 things I never could tolerate with him. His lack of upper lip situation, and that obnoxious voice of his.

What's funny is that like Dane Cook Ike Barinholtz also used to be very hot, and has also since gone way downhill.

Dane Cook used to have a nice ass.

by Anonymousreply 26Last Saturday at 5:33 PM

He’s dating a 20 year old? Gross. His face looks like a big puffy mess. Getting Wayne Newton vibes. I can see why he’s not getting work anymore.

How can no one have mentioned yet that it was Dane Cook who originated the DL locution about "smelling cookies"? He's one of our patron deities.

by Anonymousreply 28Last Saturday at 5:40 PM

I thought he was the same person as Jamie Kennedy and Daniel Tosh.

by Anonymousreply 29Last Saturday at 5:46 PM

He was close to one of my brother’s friends 12-15ish years ago. My brother dealt drugs at the time, so got invited everywhere. They used to go to Vegas almost every weekend. Tommy Lee was part of that crew too. Dane was a major cokehead and fucked any female under 115 pounds and 25 years old. Tommy Lee would’ve fucked anything with a pulse. My brother got out of the game.

As that Ike Barinholtz bit shows, Dane Cook's whole schtick depended on his intensity and his vocal rhythms--it was never on the actual material being funny. He reminded me of that old SNL skit when Phil Hartman would be Joey Bishop telling jokes that made absolutely no sense and had no punch lines, but were told in the same Borscht Belt comic inflections as if they WERE funny.

The Ike Barinholtz bit also shows that Cook must have done most of his comedy completely coked out of his mind.

What was interesting about him is that Hollywood was DETERMINED to make him a big star, and gave him a number of starring vehicles that no one liked, like "Employee of the Month" and "Good Luck Chuck." Their thinking was that his comedy was popular with college kids and he had a great body (which they showed off quite a bit in "Good Luck Chuck"), so they thought he would be a comedy heartthrob. But he just wasn't very good in films. (Hollywood tried to do the same thing with Russell Brand, who didn't have a good body but who had a handsome face--and again, audiences just didn't take to him.)

Cook at least made so much money from those films and his comedy tours that he's still a very wealthy man, even though he's a total hasbeen and has lost whatever sex appeal he once had.

by Anonymousreply 31Last Saturday at 6:04 PM

He was never funny. At all. Girls like him just becasue they thought he was hot. His career ended when he attempted to star in movies.

by Anonymousreply 32Last Saturday at 6:09 PM

All my straight male friends thought Cook was hilarious. He was King Dudebro when dudebro culture was everywhere.

by Anonymousreply 33Last Saturday at 6:10 PM

"they" tried hard to make him a sex symbol and a movie star.

by Anonymousreply 34Last Saturday at 6:12 PM

R33, same. My friend played one of his clips and had me watch it. I just turned to him and said "this isn't funny". I think he was offended, but I should be offended he wasted my time with that clip!

by Anonymousreply 35Last Saturday at 6:14 PM

Repulsive and unfunny

But he did have a great body back in the day.

R31 hopefully all that money did not go to his brother or up his nose!

by Anonymousreply 38Last Saturday at 6:17 PM

I'm convinced one of the reasons Good Luck Chuck tanked is because the movie poster pissed people off. It was a rip-off of Rolling Stone's famous tribute cover for John Lennon.

Coke bloat. Coke plays havoc with your metabolism if you abuse it. While on it your body burns fat and calories like a mad man, but when you are off it your metabolism is out of wack and burning very few calories. Plenty of stars use it for a quick 20 lb weight loss but if you get on the regular, you have to do more and more and then when you come down your metabolism is pretty much gone.

[quote] Stealing other comedians’ jokes couldn’t have helped.

I never found him particularly funny, but I always found the plagiarism charges crazy. Stealing jokes is as old as comedy. If we did away with all the hit comedians that stole material, 99% of the ones who were stars would be cancelled.

by Anonymousreply 41Last Saturday at 6:20 PM

That's the film that was supposed to make him Cary Grant. All I could see were the acne scars and huge veneers. Not funny and not even cute.

R40, the same situation with Adderall. They lose weight quickly, but can’t take a week off.

I saw him on some show many years back. The camera did a close up of his face. The guy is pockmarked like the surface of the moon.

I remember back in his heyday watching one of his standup specials. I remember two funny jokes/stories: one about launching cashews into his mouth via his boner, and one about seeing his dad’s cock. Now I wonder who he stole those from.

What's also funny is Ike Barinholtz's comedy, thus him still having a career despite not having his looks anymore.

The reason they react that way is because they thought you were simpatico, and you're telling them at a crucial juncture--with humor--you're not. They shared it with you because they wanted you to enjoy it with them.

The only decent movie I ever saw him in was Mr. Brooks with Kevin Costner.

I was afraid of that, r43. My niece started taking Adderall this year for ADHD. She went from a D student to an A student, lost 20 pounds, and is dating a hottie. Her Dr told her to take the summer off the Adderall, and she is going to balloon up and be miserable.

Mary! He is not talented and he stole from other comedians. People stopped fucking hiring him.

by Anonymousreply 58Last Monday at 7:19 AM

If he stole from other comedians and is considered 'not funny', he must have been a terrible judge of material. Did he just steal crap? You'd think he'd be hilarious if he stole good material...
