    Dane is much easier to take in movies than onstage for me anyway. Obviously, if it makes you laugh don't deny yourself - there's folks like me who almost lost a lung laughing so hard watching Borat then there's folks that walked out of the theater saying it wasn't even comedy at all... No accounting for taste..

    That's true, everyone has their own tastes. I'm not really familiar with Dane's film career. He had a small role in the movie Waiting... as a cook, and he was kind of funny I guess, probably because he was kept to a minimum. If the entire movie was just two hours of his character, that movie would have been terrible. I watched the Insomniac Tour on Comedy Central a few weeks ago, and didn't think he was that funny at all. His Vicious Circle special on HBO wasn't all that funny to me. The only thing that i've seen of Dane Cook that I thought was pretty funny was his Comedy Central Presents special, and that was before he became overexposed and his schtick became stale.

    Robin Williams is the best, but all the others named rank up there close.

    I thought Dane Cook was funny when people didn't know about him. His newer stuff isn't nearly as good. Like BigRed, I thought his original comedy central standup special was great.

    There are a lot of very funny, lesser known comics today. Anyone in Nashville ever go to Zanies? I've seen a bunch of people there. Sadly, knoxville doesn't have a comedy club, so I have to go without during the school year.

    Pablo Francisco, Stephen Lynch, Mitch Hedburg, Lewis Black, Gary Gulman, I've seen them all in person, and they're a lot of fun.

    I bet.

    I met a rep from Zanies earlier this summer, and bought some "supersaver" passes from him. For 20 bucks, I got 6 tickets to any non special engagement show between now and January!

    who cares..he sucked and BTW he will be in Nashville soon for a show

    to bad Comedians have to use lots of cussing to get folks to laugh. Guess that is why I liked the ones from yrs ago...Red Skelton, Laurel and Hardy, Three Stooges, Abbott and Costello (who's on 1st has to ranked as one of the best skits ever)
