There must be a publication somewhere that has announced Dane Cook as the best stand up comedian of 2005 and a strong hopeful for 2006.
There isn't? Well... DANE COOK IS THE FUNNIEST COMEDIAN FOR 2005; with second place going to Flight of the Conchords.
The guy is so damn funny that I am ashamed of all who have yet to see any of his extended stand up performances.
Don't believe me? Check out a few clips of Dane Cook on stage below (opens in new window):
Cook on being Catholic
Cook on the DMV
Cook talks his first time (adult content)
Convinced? No? Wear the hell is your damn sense of humor?!
Just kidding, cause there isn't a person alive who can watch those without giggling.
Anywho, this incredibly funny comedian is getting ready to show off his comedic talent in his own film... and he already has help.
The Weinstein's Want Dane Cook
According to Variety, The Weinstein Co. will develop an untitled comedy feature for comedian Dane Cook to star in and produce. The project is based on a Cook pitch and is being kept under wraps by the Weinstein brothers.
I have always wondered if Dane Cook was somehow a long lost step-brother to movie funnyman Ryan Reynolds and am stoked to see the comedian finally get a chance to let the entire world know that he exists. Actually, Dane Cook recently had a role in a film starring Ryan Reynolds-- Waiting -- with Cook playing, well, the cook. However, this was only a minute role compared to what the Weinstein's are going to throw at him.
Dane Cook can also be seen in the upcoming comedy Employee of the Month from Lions Gate Films.
Seriously though, go buy Dane Cook's CDs, as each one (I think) comes with a DVD of his best stand up performances; all for a CD price!
Stay tuned for updates.
