I watched his routine when it aired on Sunday. Didn't even chuckle. Some of his material, like the segment about Catholics and all the actions we do in church, might be pretty funny if someone else tells it, but his delivery just ruins the jokes for me.

That's funny, I listened to his cd's for like 6 months before it got the least bit old to me.

Well when his CD first came out and I listend to it, I thought it was the most funny thing I've ever heard. But just like anything, after a while it just gets old. Except masterbation of course.

I like him. I don't know if he's the best act, but he entertains me when I watch him and that's all I'm looking for. I hate arguments about people being overrated because they always involve two groups that will never give way.

In other words, if you think he sucks and is overrated, great that's your opinion. A lot of people think he's hilarious though, and are you going to argue with his success? I'm sure Dane Cook will be laughing his ass off to the bank while you're busy scratching yours and arguing over whether he's too popular for his material.

I'd agree that there are better stand up comedians out there, but it all comes down to how many people actually like you.

Sure, Justin King is an amazing guitarist, but if nobody listens to him than guess what: IT DOESN'T MATTER.

If nobody watches some comedian, then they don't get popular, they don't make it, that's it. Dane Cook has a highly successful persona that he uses. Sure he comes off like a hyper frat boy, but he makes people laugh, and in the long run that's all that matters. Sure he get's old after a while, but so does every joke that gets told over and over and over again. That's life.

I agree, he's really overrated. Some of the jokes have the potential of being funny, but the delivery is terrible and it comes off bad. That and too much of his routine is based on over-the-top stage movement and stuff, like his Alien joke. It's just a terrible attempt at a joke.

My friend told me to watch some Vicious Circle video, so I looked a bit of it up. There was this one routine about Catholics vs. Atheism. The best part was when the atheist dies, he thinks he becomes a tree, but Dane thinks it would be awesome if someday he got cut down, turned into paper, and used to print a Bible. That made me laugh, but what I really didn't like is that he somehow went off into a little routine about windex lasers for about 5 minutes...

I doubt people have fought holy wars and killed millions of people in the name of the Beatles, either. So, yeah, Jesus probably was bigger than them.
