a new circle of hell

Dane Cook is the worst fucking comedian ever. He’s not funny. At all. I can’t imagine what this experience must have been like for the audience. Then again, who would go to a Dane Cook show in the first place? They deserve to suffer.

Dave Chappelle, on the other hand, I would watch for hours. I’ve gone to see Paul Mooney, who I think Dave would consider an influence, and watched him do a set that was over 2 hours. Very long for stand up. The club kept flashing the red light and eventually the house lights at him, but he kept going. It was fabulous.

LOS ANGELES — Dane Cook broke a Laugh Factory endurance record set less than a month ago by Dave Chappelle.

In what is becoming a heated battle between the two comedians, Cook told jokes at the Sunset Strip comedy club for 7 hours, beating the record Chappelle, 34, set at 6 hours and 12 minutes in December.

Cook went on stage Tuesday and continued until nearly 7 a.m. Wednesday, and at one point even sent out for food to keep the audience fed and happy.

“If this rivalry keeps up I’m going to turn the Laugh Factory into a bed and breakfast,” club owner Jamie Masada said.

Last April, Cook set a record with an act lasting 3 hours and 50 minutes, breaking a mark set by Richard Pryor in 1980 of 2 hours and 41 minutes. Chappelle broke the record later that month, then broke his own record in December.

Cook, 35, most recently appeared with Steve Carell in the film Dan in Real Life.
