|Dane Cook is easily one of the biggest comedians of our current time. In his newest stand up, Vicious Circle, it’s not hard to tell how large of a fan-base he has with a crowd practically the size of the Dodger’s Stadium. Yet watching him run around on stage, flailing his arms in the air to get his joke across to the 36,000 fans who saw him perform that night, is nothing short than a dull, humorless bore.|
But just because he has such a great amount of enthusiasts doesn’t necessarily mean he’s actually funny. It also doesn’t mean he’s popular amongst the comedian’s own “inner-circle.” He has been accused of stealing material on more than one occasion and is looked at by other comics as a pompous thief who lacks any actual material.
Dane Cook is nothing but eye candy. He pulls in his crowds with vivid actions, loud and obnoxious slapstick behavior, smooth talking, and good looks. I wouldn’t be surprised if 90% of his fans were unsavvy females. He is prone to consistently repeating himself and etching out into different directions with his erratic sense of comedy. Cook is nothing more than overrated and in his case he can walk the walk but he just simply can’t talk the talk.
Dane Cook doesn’t sell his jokes. Hell, he doesn’t even have jokes. He’s simply selling his edgy boy band-esque image.
