Dane Cook: Isolated Incident Reviews

  • Apr 28, 2011

    This special shows a return to form for Dane Cook, with more thoughtful material. He no longer just tries to go insane on stage and hope that audiences will be fooled; he has the jokes to back it up. He's funny. He tells stories, he retains his earlier absurd scenarios, and he really wins the listener over. I was always someone who defended Dane Cook's earlier material despite the atrocious Vicious Circle, and this special shows that that faith was well-placed. Dane Cook has the ability to adapt and to remain relevant, and most importantly, make you laugh.

    Dane's observational comedy has always been edgier than, say, Jerry Seinfeld but this session turned his observations inward. Of course, he had his usual frenetic energy (somewhat caged on the smaller club stage) and his witty observations on relationships (did you know men & women are different?) but he also added in awkward and unfunny banter with the audience and bits about his parents deaths from cancer. More miss than hit from the gravel-voiced jokester. 7/5/9

    I wish he would give up the crude, sex humor and go back to his days of his Comedy Central special.
