When self-described comedian Dane Cook made a joke about the Aurora shooting, actress Stevie Ryan tweeted, “What’s worse than a Dane Cook joke? Dane Cook.” Nothing’s changed since then.

Cook appeared at the Boston Strong concert to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

But those who weren’t at the live show quickly noticed that his set was missing from the live video and audio streams of the event.

Some wondered if Cook’s set was too dirty for the live broadcast.

But no. As he later admitted on Twitter, it was all about him.

Cook’s generosity knows no bounds. He’s all for charity … as long as he doesn’t have to let his precious new material (or newly swiped material) “hit the airwaves” before he’s ready.

The Twitter backlash was swift and deservedly brutal.

Boston Herald reporter Jeff Howe contributed to the sound thrashing.

But tell us how you really feel.

A preview of the welcome “Lord Douche” and his “new material” will get next time he wants to put on a show in Boston.

Cook claims he visited Boston for one reason: “The people.”

After Cook’s douche move, the people of Boston just aren’t that into him.

      personally i think blocking broadcast of his “material” is an act of mercy. He should block it forever, perhaps load up all transcripts and recordings of his act into large crates and store them deep inside some warehouse for eternity. Sort of like they did with the ark at the end of “raiders of the lost ark”.

      • Finrod Felagund

        Why just his material? Dane Cook himself should be bronzed at Warehouse 13 to spare us all.

    Aaaaaannnnd….BOOM!

      I was wondering who he stole from.

    Dane Cook is funny in the same way severing your right foot with a butter knife is funny.

      If I had to choose, I’d rather pay to sever my right foot with a butter knife.

        if that had been the plot to Saw it would have been over in 5 minutes.

    I hope he does not make a come-back or try to. He honestly is *not* funny.
    I always wondered why people paid to see him. I just don’t get it.

            Looks like you and at least 4 others took my comment to be a slam on Twitchy. It wasn’t; was one on Dane Cook.

          • TocksNedlog

            Dane Cook has a net worth of
            $30 million.

            Which is NOT to say that he justifiably earned it. But then, there really is one born every minute.

  • thomas moore

    OK guys help me understand the outrage here. First, I am NOT a fan of Cook. He’s the Nickleback of comedy. Still I don’t get why it’s so bad he doesn’t want to broadcast his stuff. After all, he IS helping by doing a charity gig that he didn’t have to doin the first place, right?

    Make all the digs you want about his act but he IS helping out. Honestly, the complaints here sound a lot like something you would hear from liberals.

    • algonquinmatt

      If you are going to entertain at some charity thing that is being broadcast live, it’s not good form to say “i’ll do it, just cut the broadcast while i’m on”

      • thomas moore

        So someone is willing to give of their time and help out but if he doesn’t do it exactly your way, or give what YOU feel he should give, then HE’s the douche?

        • algonquinmatt

          i didn’t call him a douche, but it seems like that’s the consensus of a lot of Boston people.

      He SHOULD have done an abbreviated version of his new act, just in case it’ll play in Peoria. Kinda like THE STONES performing @ToadsPlace to rehearse for the Steel Wheels tour.

    • Noah

      there is no universe, dimension, or reality in which one would call a hack comedian telling jokes that were pulled out of someone else’s wastebasket “helping”.

        I hear he’s got a great new bit about losing his one sock in the dryer, then he’s gonna do his new “you might be a” bit, then close with his signature “DUH, DUH, DUH!

  • John (it true me am)

    Dane Cook’s character in Mr. Brooks is one of the greatest in cinema. “Why?” you ask? Because Kevin Costner kills him. Or buries him alive. I can’t remember. Either way.

    What were you expecting from a ball busting comedian? He came to your city, raised money and made anyone with 1/2 a sense of humor laugh.

  • Bret Fredrickson

    Despite the well known consensus that Dane Cook is a little douchey and past his prime, I don’t understand the backlash. Dane is doing a show for charity, in which the material he’s presenting hasn’t been released yet. Blaring it over the airwaves would just make his material easily bootlegged to people who aren’t even contributing to the charity event in the first place. So to me, Dane is being a smart, capitalistic American. And this is just another Wahh wahh post to get page views. If you’re going to call people out Michelle, make sure their actions don’t actually align with your beliefs, as we might coherently conclude, you’re full of it.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      You couldn’t PAY me to see Dane Cook perform.

      Come to think of it, John Dennis couldn’t pay me to see DC perform either.

    • Jay Stevens

      “Dane is doing a show for charity, in which the material he’s presenting
      hasn’t been released yet.”

      Well then, the answer is simple: either don’t do the show or don’t do the show with new material. Otherwise, if you signed up to do a live-streaming charity show, do a live-streaming charity show.

      • Ken Alan Draper

        he likes Boston, just not enough to do the bits he just stole from much funnier comics.

  • Guest

    Dane Cook? Who ever heard of him? More importantly, who cares? After this, I’ll bet his mother would say she doesn’t know him, either.

    I think Dane cook blocked his act from local broadcast because he felt that Boston had suffered enough already. he’s the only guy that Mencia doesn’t steal jokes from for crying out loud.
