Dane Cook Steals His Material From Funnier Comics

Everyone seems to love Dane Cook these days. His comedy shows sell out huge arenas full of backward-baseball hat wearing douchebags that love the way he screams his mediocre material so it's just 'that' much funnier.

Well, turns out a lot of his jokes aren't even his. They instead belong to much funnier comedian Louis C.K. Apparently Louis nearly sued him a while back.

And even though today's shitty culture we live in refuses to punish anyone for anything (Ashley Simpson, GW Bush, Larry the Cable Guy), it's nice that someone took the time to put Dane Cook's jokes side by side with Louis C.K.'s material from several years earlier.

Click here to hear the damning evidence.

P.S. Louis CK's show on HBO, "Lucky Louie", is the greatest live sitcom ever.

As a comedian I know the pain of never getting discovered for a few years. I also am the guy you see on the bus talking to himself or writing everything down. Those are jokes. Dane probably saw some comics on TV got jealous and took some jokes. Which is unfortunate because I knew a comic who stole a joke and used it in a competition. Last I heard he lives with Fred Savage and Scot Baio on a cowfarm in Iowa. Dane its really not hard to say your two cents, start easy make fun of everyday situations or politics.

Anyone that thinks Dane Cook is funny should have there head examined. This guy is a tool. He brainwashed college kids through his web site to believe that he was the MAN. Which is total bull. This guy has a huge data base of robot fans that will pay to see him , and they only pay $17 to see him , if you don't believe me check out any college he has ever played at, but he has absolutely zero talent. The last time I was in New York I hung out at the "New York Comedy Club" and saw a comedian named "Robert Bella" , a cross between Steve Martin and Rodney Dangerfield , the funniest comic I have seen in years !!!! You want to laugh , see this guy , believe me you will thank me for the rest of your life. Make sure you call to see if he is performing , that way you don't go there just to see the average comedians.

{much of the following post is IMO only, so remember that} First of all, for anyone to call this a direct forgery would be in error. Only one of the three jokes in question even come close to crossing the plagerism line. The car accident bit, I will admit, is suspiciously similar. Still, I don't find it similar enough to prove that he truly stole anything.

I know this is a tired point, but Cook's delivery slaughters CK's delivery in every way. When I first heard these jokes told by Cook years ago, I exploded in laughter. Just now, I still chuckled just a bit even after playing his CD out over a year ago. Louis CK, on the other hand, while obviously funny to some did not even make me crack a smile.

Another good defense for Cook is the difference in the bits. One could not say that Cook stole these bits word for word because this is just not the case for any of them. They all have their differences, and frankly I feel the jokes were improved upon by Cook. What does the future of stand-up comedy hold if no one can be influeced or inspired by anyone anymore. I know I am being extreme, but seriously, if Louis CK performs a joke poorly, why can Dane Cook not take the premice, style it as his own, stand up, and tell it? If it gets better laughs (and it will), what harm has been done?

In closing, the entertainment industry is filled with performers of all sorts who have almost always been inspired by someone else who came before them. Dane Cook did not steal any of the bits in question, although he very well may have seen CK's act and been inspired by those ideas. So the hell what? These jokes are just funnier coming from Cook.

Oh, and btw... F#@& Shoes!

It's just sad. My only hope is that you losers grow up to have something you create ripped off from you. It's great that you're gay for Dane, it really is, but even other respectable comic agree that what Cook did was way out of bounds. Following your logic, I should be able to read Ginsberg or Frost poems, and if people think I look cool doing it and wear a tight enough t-shirt, I should get to collect all the royalties for it.

plagiarism (n)a piece of writing that has been copied from someone else and is presented as being your own work.

I think we can assume that writing = spoken here. However, these things are far diffrent. First the bike incident, ummm...the other guy was jogging. Also, CK's focus is more on the amount of time with wich he had to say somether where dane's joke was focused more on teh runner and the witnessing of said event. They are close, but to say he copied I think is false. I made a joke the other day, completly on my own and when I said it someone had said they heard it before. When they showed me the comedian I was shocked. I never even heard of the guy.

Same could go for Dane. Danes jokes focus on everyday situations, something that MOST comedians of today are focused on. They lighten the mood of everyday events that are happaning the here and now. People, I believe are just jealous of his success. I mean seriously, I don't here car alarm manufactures complaining that he copied the sound of a mid 90's car alarm. Why? Cause they could care less. I like Dane, and he started in Boston, where I currently live. His jokes were funny than and funny now. He even has new matrial which is rare. The other comedian mentioned above, Robert bella, has been doing the same matrial for years now. but he is labeled by the author of that comment as "funny as hell". yeah I bet 3 years from now he'll still be a knee slapper! Or he might just drop off the face of the earth.

Dudes, in response to drew and anyone else, honestly have an open mind. YOu assholes couldtn't respect a good point if it came form your own mom. Ryan simply listened to the tracks in question then posted what he thought was the case and it makes alot of sense. The jokes are similar but only one is close to being a direct steal. But you jerks say hay what a fag and laugh it off. whats the point of arguing it or debating when all you are going to do is make fun of the other side and say fuck you not listening. you are supposed to listen then respond in the right way. if you have better evidence to disprove ryans theory do so, dont be a dick. As an overall Comedy fan i have listened to a crap load of stuff, and tons of comedians have same or similar jokes, yet noone complains. everyone telss jokes that they hear but some are funnier at doing so than others. plus eventually the world is going to run out of 100% original material, stuff has to be borrowed and modified. Dane is just better at doing so. Plus those were what 3 of his probably 100 or so jokes. tthe rest are his original ideas and stories and pretty funny or at least entertaining. Besides, admit it his sound effects are funny if nothing short of damn good. lets see you guys mimic those sounds.

Other comedians have been copied from. JEff Foxworthy had some of his stuff taken from some korean comedian from Nashville on a show of his i saw the other day, funny thing was FOXWORTHY EMDORSED the show. my guess as to why he didn't care is b/c one this guy made it funnier and 2, the jokes were from like 15 years ago. OR take for example Ron White he recycles his joke modifies them for new ones or just resuses them after a certain time frame has passed. all i say is either have an open mind or at least look for other examples to bitch about too. dont single out dane.

I would like to say however that after listening agian the ASshole joke is obvious and terrible, but its not funny in either case to who gives a shit. also, the guy edited out so much of Danes act, i takes hime like 10 min to get through all three of those jokes. and they are all laced with other funy completely original jokes.

Dane cook obviously stole these jokes, and to be honest i don't know why everyone thinks he is so funny. He doesn't even tell jokes, his act is just his over active delivery. I watched his hbo special. and didn't laugh once. Meanwhile Lucky Louie is one of the funniest shows i've ever scene in my life. Dane cook is like paris hilton, their famous, but no one's sure why.

i can definitely see the similarities between the two different acts, but even if dane did in fact draw some inspiration from this louis fellow, who are we to criticize dane alone. it goes on continuously in the entertainment industry. movies become cliche due to recycled plots and stock characters. plots of entirely different books seem to blend together until they become indecipherable from one another.

i personally believe that the subject matter that dane covers is not the most amusing part of the performance. what truly makes his work original is his facial expression, vocabulary and phrase choice, vocal tone, and body motion. anyone can recite the same old material, but it is the character of the performer that makes him a true comedian.

Ok,
I would just like to say that Dane Cook is the shit, and you people who think he steals material can get over it. Sure, the jokes have a similar aspect to them, but they are not the same jokes. Dane Cook makes them his own, makes them better. And considering the amount of material Dane Cook has, you can't base your preception of him on two little measly jokes.

Wow there's a lot of jealousy out there in Comedy land! I can see where somone might think that Dane may have "stolen" these bits from that other guy, whom I've never heard of and for good reason, he's horrible! Lame delivery and lack of emotion. Look me in the eye and tell me that you've never told a joke that you heard somewhere else? Haven't we all done the same knock knock jokes? You've gotta get your inspirtaion from somewhere, and that is all this was. Dane simply took this guys tired act and made it funny! I've heard his bits over and over again and laugh every time, when I heard the comparison to whats his face ... not even a lil chickle, nothin! Dane takes these jokes to a whole new level. You can't get mad at the guy for doing a better job! All comics will eventually run over some mutual material but that's just the way it goes, it's all been done, but each comic in their own right gives the joke a new twist, their own spin and delivers it in their own way, that's just how it works. So if you don't like Dane, fine, you are entitled to your retarded opinion, just don't knock the guy for being a comical genious and doing what he does best, he's just trying to make a living! So to all of you who still think that he is a douche bag and that he "stole" this other guys material I give a grat big SU-FI and shove it! Dane IS the MAN and I will not let you sway my opinion in any way! The Dain Train is in motion get off the fuckin tracks! SU-FI!!!!!!!

All of these jokes are just everyday social commentary. Of course their funny, but for how long? The jokes make us laugh a bit the first time, then we probably get over them. None of the three jokes listed, in my opinion, were that smart. You have two comedians telling similar clever jokes. Both the deliveries will apeal to different crowds and that's fine. The only injustices I witnessed throughout this blog was post after post of people claiming that their oppinions are truths.

First of all im not a big Dane cook fan. Although the topics are pretty much the same the jokes are not stolen. Dave Attell also talks about naming a child something weird that doesnt mean there all stealing jokes. George Carlin and Jerry Seinfeld each talk about flying on an airplane and similar topics about the flight but there not the same. and if a joke has a similar format to another joke its because its funny and it works its not nesseccarily being stolen

First of all, I have nothing against Dane Cook. Disregarding who wrote the jokes, I did laugh at his routine althouh it was a bit over the top at times. I think he describes himself best as a silly bitch.

Today I saw him on a rerun of SNL and he was telling a joke about asking for a certain size of shoe in a store. in the joke, the sales lady goes in back to get the shoe and then returns with a size 9 shoe (too small). Dane proceeded to joke about the situation. "oh thanks do you have a hack saw", "the shoes would have fit me in 7th grade". This joke caught my attention because there is one almost exactly like it on Demetri Martin's new CD: These Are Jokes (freakin awesome CD by the way). I was just kinda curious to know if anyone could tell me who had used the joke first or from where it originated. I'd hate to think Demetri stole material from Dane Cook.

P.S. Demetri's was funnier!

First of all, the majority of the people supporting Dane Cook on this page don't exactly sound like "frat boy nimrods". They sound like the only people that actually know how to use logic and reasoning effectively. There are only a few people that write brainless, idiodic shit that no one wants to read and most of them are the one's saying that Dane Cook stole his material. So you can suck my gooch, cock ass!

Oh and to all the people that are dogging on the people that like Dane Cook, why don't you grow up. Don't worry, it's not some big conspiracy that a ton of people like Dane Cook. You just have a crappy sence of humor and need to get over it. And whoever said that he "brainwashes" people into thinking he's the shit should probably be parking in handicapped spots cause they're effing retarded. Or as Carlos Mencia would say, they're dee de dee. Here, I'll make it really plain and simple for all the retards out there- the reason why everyone likes Dane Cook is because he's a good commedian. Get the fuck over yourselves and go back to playing with your nanopets.

I seriously cannot stand Dane Cook, and I actually tried to like him / give him a chance at one point, thinking that i was just "missing it" or whatever... if you think he's funny or entertaining, that's fine, but that he's regarded as a genius or as someone with something substantive to say offends me.

and for the people who say he wasn't stealing material from Louis CK, i would say, "well, no, he didn't quote Louis word for word, but notice that the same "oberservations" emphasized in Louis' bits are the same ones Dane Cook emphasizes in his" (ie, not knowing what to say when the guy was about to get hit, the naming your kid bit revolving around some name that can't be pronounced and then discipling her / giving her a command, and, well, the itchy asshole. arrgh, i could probalby rant on about this for way longer than appropriate so i'll just end this here.

And to the guy that says were being "brained washed" by his media and stuff that he does to make himself known, well that guy is a loed of BS. I bet you that this person that is making that accusation is not even in college let alone in their early to mid twenties! All i have to say to the guy that BLOGGED this is fiercely annoyed by the humor that DC makes and needs to go on vaca and get his head looked at cause dane is being ranked up there with some of the top comedians like Steve Martin, George Carlin, etc . . .
Plus this incident is reminding me of the damn Vanilla Ice and David Bowie music scandel. Seriously, unless you have written proof or something thats documented that DANCE COOK stole his material, then you got nothing. STFU. Dane Rocks. And the Louis guy isn't that well known anymore. You go and ask about 1000 people and take a poll and see how much more known cook is compare to this other guy(see if i don't remeber his name then he sure isn't that great then). ON TOP OF THAT Go do your fucking research about dane cook a little better and maybe take a stroll over to his actual sie and read his actual blogs that he has and maybe realize that he is in fact FUNNY and has his own material and doesn't rip off other comics stuff. okay i have spoken. peace.

Okay, so, everyone here is saying that there is no proof that Dane Cook stole the material. True, he might not have, and they are very similar, which probably happens more than we are aware, but in all honesty, Louis C.K. is, in fact, funnier. His delivery is subtle. That's what makes him better. There are only two comedians in this world who can slam jokes in our faces, and those two are Jim Carrey and Robin Williams, and that is because the two of them can also be subtle. Of every Dane Cook skit I've heard, he's yelling profanities. How is that funny in the slightest? It's not funny. It's pretty immature. He learned, from his possibly idiot friends, that he could get a laugh by yelling profanities, and the college crowd is really into that and finds that hilarious. That fact is rather sad because there are great comedians out there being skipped over because they don't fit this idiot, yelling-profanities mode that is becoming sadly dominant. Watch Jim Gaffigan, his delivery at times sounds like Will Ferrell, and he even says it during some skits, or it even sounds like Adam Sandler sometimes, which he readily admits in skits, but it's still his own delivery. Dane Cook has no delivery. He yells. That's not a good type of delivery when what you are saying cannot be understood, and I know that I have problems understaing with his lack of annunciation while yelling. Many of you think he is amazing, but I think it is because most of you don't want subtle humor, the kind that makes you think, so maybe one day you will be able to appreciate the subtle humor of the masters of comedy, and until that happens, comedians who lack any real substance like Dane Cook will continue to grace us with their presence, which we will just have to deal with because he won't be able to sustain himself on his act like Jim Carrey, Robin Williams, and other great comedians have for so long. He's a fleeting moment in the history of comedy, so it may just be best to let all of these people continue to think he is amazing until they realize that, in fact, he isn't, and there is much better comedy out there than his.

Loooook folks, here's the thing. Louis CK, funny on a show, on stage..get the hell outta here. One of the main facets in stand up is delivery and stage presence. Dane Cook has both. Dane Cook could read read out of a history book, put his own twist on it and have people rolling. oh and how many people come up with completely original thoughts or ideas? NONE. There is no original thought anymore, same in scholastics, you build off of others. This is provided Dane Cook even actually stole anything from anybody. You wanna talk about stealing material?

David Cross is pretty freakin bland to start, he is a genious in sketch comedy, but not stand up. Mitch Hedberg was good yes, but still kinda bland, but he had a very unique style. Dane Cook has his own too, and its not just yelling profanities. David Cross is very dry, thats his shtick, Carlos Mencia plays on the race and stereotypes cards, Mitch Hedberg plays the pot head/mildly retarded funny shit, George Carlin is an entropy fan/shock value/smart-logic/hard to deny comedian, brian regan plays the "i am and used to be an imbocile" card, Robin Williams- ADHD hyperactivity, Eddie Izzard - cross dress comedy. The thing is, they all bring something to the table and they are hilarious. Dane Cook, mixes witty, everyday life, and throws in some childish stuff and it makes you laugh. But you know what? Laugh at what you find funny!!! YOU FIND FUNNY! Not everyone has the same sense of humor. It DOES NOT mean they arent funny, it just means you should FUCK OFF if you generalize a comedian as talentless, not funny, etc. just because YOU dont find it funny...enough with that narrow minded bull shit. The philosophy professor was right, though it extends past the greeks. There is no original thought, which makes research papers pointless. Oh, I like Dane Cook...and i hate the idea of me ever being in a Frat, nothing against them, just not who i am. Who the hell is robert bella? If you want to hear funny, original, and obscure comedians listen to Jeffery Ross, The Amazing Jonathan, Lisa Lampanelli, Greg Giraldo, and Richard Jeni. Steve Colbert is another funny one, not a stand up. but he is funny...the colbert report.

Dane Cook aka Fisher Price, My first comedian. Anyone who is a fan of real stand up comedy can see through the karate kicks and exhuberant voices to see how shallow his act really is. And to compound that, he commits the cardinal sin of stand up comedy, stealing bits.

I'll give him credit for being a marketing genius. He's the michael bay of comedy. He can sell out a house to a bunch of slack jawed retards who are entertained like a baby giggling and squirming at an adult jiggling keys in front of their face. Dane makes you laugh AT him, not at his material. Some people like big explosions and special effects over a well told story. To each his own.

Really, there isn't anything we can do about it here on the internet. How many times has "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" been redone? Should we hear the song only by it's original artist and screw anyone who thinks they can make the song better? No, because there are many ways that musicians jazz it up and make their own. Same with jokes. Someone earlier brought up a good point... Haven't we all retold the same knock-knock jokes? Besides, isn't it likely that both these guys have seen someone get hit by a car, and have had an itchy asshole, and want to name their children?

Do you all realize that you are fighting over itchy assholes, fictional children's names, and attempted vehicular manslaughter? While you ponder this, realize that all comics are influenced by others and some do piggyback off the jokes of other comics. But what may or may not have happened doesn't matter because the joke varies in such a large degree that even if the premise is the same, the delivery separates them. I can see where the original confusion did surface because these are the only two guys that have ever had an itchy asshole before.

As far as no one punishing people for their stupidity, I think that someone who puts GW Bush, Ashley Simpson, and Larry the Cable guy in the same group needs a nice slap upside the head. I think I hear your mommy calling, dinner is ready.....

Dane Cook OBVIOUSLY stole those bits. They are so similar its sick.

Whether or not he made them better is arguable, I personally think Dane Cook is the sorriest stand up comedian ever to make it big.

Other big stand up comedians openly express their hatred for Dane Cook, how unfunny he is and how much of an unoriginal thief he is. But those comedians must just not have a good sense of humor, right? I mean, who doesn't find a jackass(Dane Cook) flailing around like an idiot on stage and talking about the most retarted !@%# ever(The parts that aren't so retarted are stolen from other comedians or can be directly related to jokes made on popular TV shows) to be the funniest thing in the world?

You have got to be kidding me. Yes Dane Cook is funny for the most part, but to say Dane Cook took those jokes and made them his own is fuckin STEALING. How the fuck can anyone say that those jokes arent the same? It's the same joke reworded. And once again that's stealing. Dane Cook watched Louis CK's act one night when he was performing and a few weeks later was doing the material. Louis CK didn't want to be a dick about it and ended up not calling Dane to put an end to it. But as a result they aren't friends. Dane Cook has stolen material from Joe Rogan and Rogan called him up and told him that shit isn't cool and Dane told Joe that his own lawyer made quit doing that joke. Dane is a known joke theif in the comic community. Dane is a self promoter and he does it well thats why he is so big. And someone like Joe Rogan who has had and has major success isn't jealous and he called him out. The proof is right there in those two bits. You all just don't want to believe that Dane Cook isn't the real deal. Learn the facts. It's over Johnny.

id say yes the first one he def stole its way to similiar the second maybe but the third def not its almost completly diffrent just because they were both about an ichy asshle doesn't make it the same. butstill he stoll a couple jokes one counterpoint is most people say he doesn't have jokes so how can he steal jokes if he doesn't tell them 2: it doesn't make it right but alot of hisd stuff is original and he's not really making money off of it no one's buying his cd's just for those joke's nor going to see him just for those jokes its the whole package and most of the package is in its original wrapping. 3: people who say your retarted for liking him is just rediculus sorry other people have oppinions. what are we 5 now? well sry im busy catching cooties from the girls, grow up thanks. 4:does he have to tell jokes to be funny, sitcoms like friends and seinfeld are funny do they sit there n tell jokes no it'sa story he's just a one many sitcom to argue it. maybe they should give him his own sitcom then you'd like him or maybe you would just call me a retard.

Who ever said comedians had to tell jokes with punchlines? A comedian isn't a joke-teller - (s)he is an entertainer who makes people laugh. Based on Dane's success, I'd say he's doing alright at being a comedian. If people want all comedians to have the same style, comedy would be boring. Dane makes it fun. And whoever said he "brainwashed" college kids...that's just ridiculous. Different people like different things. Just because I find Dane hilarious doesn't mean I've been brainwashed. I though he was funny way before he got where he is today. He's successful because people like what he does. No matter what you think that is, who are you to judge other people who like it?

This is the stupidest excuse for a comparison between these two comics that I've ever seen. Also pretty much everyone that posted here has very limited grasp of grammar and the English language.

"Their" shows possession of people
"his" is possession of a single person

"They're" means They Are. Leanr it- and you won't sound like an idiot when you type on the internet.

With that said, Dane cook talks about everyday things that everyday people think and talk about. An itchy asshole, a childs name, and a car accident are so commonplace that unless there was verbatim plagiarism on Dane's part- there is no way that you can ever accuse him of stealing the jokes.

Just dislike him because you dislike him, don't try to discredit him as an artist. You could accuse almost every musician of doing the same damn thing- if you've ever played an any instrument you know that every song on the radio uses the same 4 chords and we don't go and accuse every band of copying the other.

Go make fun of nickelback, or ashley simpson, or even emo kids. Just leave Dane alone.

First off, to those who say that Dane Cook must be a better comedian than Louis CK just because Cook is more well known- that'a a stupid argument. That's like saying the Dave Matthews Band is the best in the country.

Secondly, Joe Rogan told a story on the Opie and Anthony show about when, several years ago, Cook and Jim Breuer were performing at the same venue in Canada. During Cook's set, Breuer called Rogan to inform him that Cook was doing a bit by Rogan verbatim.
Rogan let it slide until he witnessed first hand Cook again doing the same bit at a later time. Rogan confronted him about it and Cook promised he would stop doing the bit- basically admitting it was stolen.

This is not just an isolated incident between Louis CK- who is hilarious by the way, as is Lucky Louie- but rather an ongoing think for Cook, who seems to be pissing off one comedian after another for stealing material.

To all of you kids that are saying, "Yeah, he ripped it off (you finally admit to it as the PROOF is on the same page)...
but he does it better and there's nothing wrong with taking someones material and doing better."
Do you know anything!?
Do you know what theft is!?
Now, I am not going to rack my brain over the brainless- I can see that you have never taken the time/effort/heart to write something that means a lot to you, (or work so hard on something that could be stolen)- so therefore you OF COURSE can not understand what this is all about.

(but dear God, I am trying to teach them).
What if you wrote a great... movie. Or a great song (no, not the justin timberlake or rap / image stuff)-
Then some asshead that had no talent but wanted to be popular just ... TOOK it - (but instead of saying, "wish she were here" says "wish she was here" (by the way 'were' is correct)- and then tells the world, "Yeah, I wrote this!"
(keep in mind, this is the 'thing' that you worked very hard on (heart/soul, all that)-
and this person that stole it all was raking in a million bucks from it, whilst you are stuck living with your parents or your stinky roommate "Vito".
I am just guessing... that you would feel different. I have a funny feeling that you would (then) stick up for what is correct- instead of admitting to a wrong (hey not your fault- you didn't know- didn't watch as many comedians (only what was popular on campus that month).

Personally, I used to like Dane Cook, now I don't. His jokes just got old and I don't care for him anymore. However, I still believe that he didn't nessesarily take CKs jokes. I think if he directly said them word for word that would be kind of nasty but there's no proof that he did. He could have easily come up with that shit (maybe?) I dunno...Some people have the same sense of humor (Ok, maybe I'm wrong on that, maybe I'm not) But if he did get the ideas for jokes from CK (ie: getting hit by a car, naming kids weird names, and itchy assholes) he didn't directly take any of his jokes.

For people who think Dane Cook is the greatest thing to come along because of his "delivery"..I'm sorry but jumping around like you've just sucked down 50 red bulls does not constitute a good delivery.

Steven Wright is 10 times funnier than Dane Cook could ever dream of being, and according to everyone's definition of stage presence, he would have none. Louis C.K. has more of that dry sense of humor that Dane Cook fans just don't seem to get. Also, just because you may not have heard of him doesn't mean there aren't millions of us (myself included) out there that haven't.

No I didn't find either of those jokes particularly funny, but I've laughed harder at 5 min. of Louis C.K.'s stand up then a whole 30 or 40 min. of Dane Cook. Yes, I did give him a chance, but he's just not funny.

i figure this is exactly what dane cook would be like if he had to write his own material. yes, dane is very good at delivering his jokes, but what good is a delivery if you can't take credit for teh actual joke.

a comedian who doesn't write his own jokes, is just as bad as a music artist who doesn't write their own songs, or a politician that hires someone to write his own book.

any1 who loves dane cook, in theory should love other fakes like any rapper whos name starts with "lil'" or "young", american idle stars, avenged sevenfold, and just about every other pop/rock/rap released in the past 5 years.

the truth is that for every 1 truly talented artisan in the media, there are 100's of fakes.

society has been dumbed down to a point that is downright pathetic. when you watch any modern comedian, good or bad, if you listen closely, the audience isn't even laughing at the joke. how many times do you hear a comedian get half way through a joke, not even close to the punch line, and the laughter begins to roar. its because they are laughing at the little things, like funny hand movements, or silly words like crap or horny.

EASY WAY to make people laught, jump around, flap your arms, say whatever the fuck u want just in a funny voice, and then fart into the microphone.

p.s. for those who didn't realize, dane cook also knows the EASY WAY

As a comic myself, I was On board the "Dane Train" for a while I was tellin other people who wasn't very familiar with Dane, (which is hard whether you like him or not) you know check out a Dane event, But I also found that Louis is one of the Funniest comics to ever grace a stage, and to hear these jokes that dane has stole, just makes my stomach churn, becuase i can't really stress how much a comedians (a serious comedian) material means to him or her, and that its a low down shame to just take some ones material, I honestly think if you get caught stealing another comics material you should be banned from comedy clubs across america, go to japan and do stand up, there is enough issues in america for every comic to pick one,

First off, this whole arguement you dumbasses are wasting your time on is all opinion. So whether you like Dane or not, just because you say he stole the jokes and then throw some insults to the Cook fans to help yourself sleep at night, doesn't mean he actually stole them. Like said before, comedians "piggy-back" off of each other countless times because they can make it funnier than before. So seriously guys, go get a fucking life and stop wasting your time on this blog. And Louis C.K. is a poor excuse for a comic considering no body knows who he is and based on the material provided by the blogger. Dane & Demetri can tell jokes that make you laugh. Unlike Louis.

There is really no point in me posting this since the people who need to read this won't listen to a word I'm about to say.

The thing about comedians that make people love them and laugh at their jokes is the reality of the material. If it wasn't a common theme to most of the population comics usually don't use the material. However, when it is a common theme within the community stand up comics run with it till their audience is blue in the face. The material isn't individualized because it has to work for a large group of people.
In essence then, I don't believe that Dane Cook stole specific ideas from Lous CK. He followed general topics, came up with his own shit to spew, and said it in a way that 1. works for his audience, and 2. creates the best possible image he can get as a stand up comedic.
While I do not condone plagerism in ANY situation, I believe people are making too big of a deal out of a small thing. Dane Cook is a relatively new comic, and from what experience I have with new people in any area is that their ideas are not always fresh. I am not a comic, however, I am a fledling writer. I see every day how ideas are used by one person, then another a generation later, and then again, a generation after that. yet, they don't call it plagerism. Why? Because it is not verbatim what the previous author had written.
so please, give both comics credit and if Dane Cook is really borrowing ideas then think of the honor he is giving Louise CK when he uses that idea in front of thousands of new people who havent heard it before.

Just some info I thought some of you should know. The three similar passages that have been heard are from a Louis C.K. ablum from 2001 and a Dane Cook concert from 2005. 3 bits from one album all end up on one HBO special four years later. That is beyond a coincidence. Dane Cook has opened for Louis C.K. around the country several times. He's heard this material and used it as his own. This is not repeating a joke you heard on the Chappelle show around the water cooler. This is standing on stage as an artist, being paid and passing off someone elses hard work as your own. These comedians spend months and years honing a set for a TV special or album and it violates every code of ethics for some talentless hack to the take the polished material and use it as his own. Even if he makes a funny face or wild hand guesture while repeating it. Dane Cook has been accused of stealing for the better part of a dacade. Joe Rogan recently told a story on the Opie and Anthony show of getting a call from Jim Breuer of SNL when Breuer was doing stand up in Canada. Cook was opening for him and doing Rogan's act verbatim. Cook had been opening for Rogan for several years whenever he did shows in Boston and was aware of his material. Rogan confronted him and told him to stop and Cook said he wouldn't tell the jokes anymore. I guess he thought "I'm in Canada, who'll know." Well, news travels fast in the small community of stand up. Cook is a wildly sucessful self promoter. His hard work and talent in this area is unquestioned. But he is a pariah is the stand up comedy world. All these guys have are their words and their integrity. Dane Cook has demontrated that he has neither.

not good enough. No doubt Dane heard this guy, but he definitely did his own thing with these jokes, and the other guy isn't even funny when he says it. Plus, how do you know for sure that this guy didn't steal from Dane. This is simply not conclusive and a petty excuse for "damning evidence". Get a life.

Anyone who thinks Dane is funnier than Louis should explain to us why it's funnier when screamed. Dane is for stupid people who are amused by funny noises and haven't gotten past the Ace Ventura stage of comedy.

Sorry faggots, thoughts and abstract ideas put in an ironic or sarcastic light make me laugh... of course delivery is a big part of humor, but no one can honestly say that Louis' timing stink.

Oh, here's something I love to do... ask a Dane Cook fan to list their 10 favorite comedians and see if they can even name 5 others (of course they'll name Bobby Kelly, Jay Davis, and the other dude because of Tourgasm).

Dane fans know jack shit about comedy except for "ha ha, his screaming and running around makes things funnier".

I definitely see the copied jokes, but Dane pulls it off far better (not that I condone the copying). People just hate the frat guy image that Dane portrays, and I think it biases their opinion of him because they think of every white-hat wearing frat boy that ever annoyed them in college. Let's shed the bias and focus on the humor.

Even given these seemingly blatant ripoffs, Dane comes up with plenty of his own stuff.

Everyone that is defending Dane Cook is missing the point. Sure, we have all told jokes that we have heard somewhere else. The difference is that we don't pretend to have created the jokes. The point is that Cook took somebody's jokes, changed them a bit and pretended that they were his. And then he collected the paycheck.

Danes skit: I heard skit last week for the very first time... And I'll admit I thought it was funny.. especially the guy on the bike skit and the itchy asshole bit. After hearing CK's, I can say that Dane is a douche. He obviously stole the jokes. For people saying theyre not the same or defending the theivery by saying anybody has the right to take a joke and improve on it is ridiculous.

I honestly heard the jokes when Dane told them and thought to myself, 'dam that was funny, why couldnt I think of an itchy asshole bit..oh well, Now its too late'... ANd now I learn that even he didnt.

What a loser. oh well, he still told one of the funnies jokes Ive ever heard in another special (now im wondering if he stole that one too)

The only joke of those I'd call plagiarism would be the itchy asshole joke. The other two Dane focuses on completely different parts and takes them farther, throwing his own elements in there. Besides, why focus on these three jokes? Dane Cook has numerous of jokes that are without argument his creation, and most of them are brilliant. If you can listen to his joke about the Kool Aid commercials and tell me it isn't funny, then anything you have to say really doesn;t matter to me anyway.

By the way, Louis CK is a great comedian too. There are also quite a few other comedians I prefer over both CK and Cook.

Steve Martin uses the same topic (names) which predates both recordings. This site compares all 3 jokes: http://www.dead-frog.com/archives/2007/01/steal_this_joke_louis_ck_dane_cook_steve_martin.php So, maybe Louie CK and Dane both stole their jokes from Martin? No, you can't say that. Comedians just observe everyday things and give their spin on it.

Comparing the two accident jokes is pretty sad, because they relate very little. The whole Dane joke isnt even there, the clip is missing at least two minutes, which goes on to teh main focus of the joke, THE MAN'S RESPONSE TO GETTING HIT BY A CAR. Also, a lot of dane's jokes involve car accidents of sorts, and just cars for that matter. And they're all very funny. Can you find a way to relate those to a guy crashing on bike too?

Overall, i'm not convinced Cook stole anything.

Hardly. Steve Martin also has a joke where he makes up a name that repeats one sound. Dane Cook's car crash joke isn't even entirely in the clip, the rest of it is the funniest part of the joke (and was entirely dane's creation), and the itchy asshole is a common topic, happens to everyone. Louie CK can't make a claim to the itchy asshole.

He isn't the best comedian. But definately not the worst. I wouldn't agree with "Dane Cook Steals His Material From Funnier Comics" though, because Dane Cook is way funnier than Louie CK. All of this Dane Cook hatred seems to be stemming from his superstardom. He won't last if he can't release new material fast though, because too much of his comic style relies on the delivery, it's tough to listen to his stuff a third or fourth time and get a laugh. He has his golden moments though, such as "well, what was she doing putting her face near tires?" or "Has anyone seen my shoes!?!? I kicked them off in a fit of joy!".

What am I hearing? Am I hearing it is okay for Dane Cook to steal the material of funnier comics because he presents it better than they do? What the hell is wrong with you people? Dane Cook is not only "re-doing" these skits, but claiming them as his own work! A) He is unoriginal, B) He is a thief. Needless to say, there is something fundamentally wrong about plagiarism, especially in the realm of the arts.

The life of comedian is not unlike that of any artist. Spending time with the craft of comedy (painting, music, basketweaving, whatever) takes a ton of time, effort and years to refine and perfect for live audience. Imagine spending all of your free time for 10 to 15 years, molding your act, for years upon years, working yourself from the ground up in small comedy clubs, to bars, to larger venues paying your dues and then imagine some shmuck coming right in, stealing your material and becoming famous for YOUR act? Thats disgusting. Its even more disgusting that this this type of behavior is so casually excused because of Cook's more enthusiastic presentation skills. It is nothing less than infantile to think this type of behavior is acceptable.

But i have always thought that mr. cook stole his material from other comics, face it material is hard to come by and even harder to work on. I think that the pressure became too much and he felt that he had to take other material and change it just enough so that most people wouldn't notice. I support both even though i don't like their styles-i would however just like to hear less about dane cook for a while, i can't stand listening to the same material people pirated online played over and over again along with the continuous streams of people who mimik his jokes.

If he did steal what was in the audio comparison, honestly, so what? It was like 4 topics out of, what, the 100 that Cook has talked about.

You know, the only thing I'm gonna say is gonne be short and sweet. Ever since the beginning, people take old ideas and reform them. As a writer, you see that a lot and those taking Humanities will see painters as wel borrow styles from the east, west and all kinds of other artists. Why? Because people want to be as good as others. Whether it was malice or not, I completely agree that Dane Cook didn't come up with those jokes on his own and it wasn't even inspiration, but a need to be accepted as a good comedian; in other words, what people expect is what they'll get. Back in the day, people only wanted to paint things that were human and religious. Now we paint all kinds of crazy things, BUT they follow a general idea. Dane Cook is doing the same thing and for it to be the SAME joke and be plagiarism, it would have to be the joke WORD for WORD, but he did indeed change it up. Do I think it's still morally incorrect, yes I do, but if he can put his own twist on it and make it funnier, then so be it. If anything the other comedian is just a tab bit jealous and is now trying to get what he can, but Dane Cook is young, funny and he has a voice that was made to tell jokes. A man works too hard because he has something to prove, so if it seems like he's trying to hard, let him. Obviously he's got something to gain. So leave it at that and you either love him or hate him. No one is forcing you to listen to him.

Does it really matter if some people think he sucks? Dane Cook is a marketable comic, and a lot of people think he's damn funny. Liking a comic is a totally subjective thing anyway, so if you don't like him, you don't have to watch him. He makes people laugh, and what's so wrong with that? I honestly think that other comics criticize him because they are jealous of his large fan base. Obviously, he's more famous than they are, and better looking too. As I said, he's totally marketable. You can't hate the guy because he's successful. So what if he has a big ego? He deserves it. He didn't get where he is today by sitting on his ass and bitching about how sucky some other comic is.

I loved that someone finally noticed that all of these people with Cook boners can barely spell, and if you want to watch a real comic then download one of Dave Chappelle's standups, he can deliver but his jokes are so good that he doesn't need to, he can stand in the middle of the stage and just tell his jokes and you still laugh your ass off, face it, Dane Cook is a MySpace creation and in the days of Richard Prior he'd be just another no talent hack, Dane Cook just stands jumps around and screams like an idiot until someone chuckles, it's nice to know that I am not the only person out there who loathes this tool, and for you robots who will just laugh at anything just think next time and don't laugh, he sucks, get him off the stage

I don't think it really matters the 3 jokes he stole.
Because those aren't his only jokes and obviously has to be some what funny seeing as he has a huge fan base. So saying he isn't funny doesn't make much sense. Also funny isn't always the same to everyone try taking into account that some people have a different sense of humor.

But what i personally get annoyed at is when people just say something rude with zero explanation. Also when people hate something just because its popular if it was more underground they'd like it just because less people know it... that really doesn't make much sense to me ignoring talent just because a lot of people recognize it.
