    yeah, but that's not the main reason people don't like him. there are two main reasons:

    1) a lot of people are enchanted by his voice and timing of his jokes, but a lot of them aren't funny at all by themselves. personally, i think that's part of being a good comedian, but there you go.

    2) he's popular. a lot of people (green day haters come to mind) feel the need to dislike something because it's "mainstream." to them, hating dane cook raises them above the crowd.

    I hear this now and then about comedians - Carlos Mencia for example has also been charged with stealing jokes. My guess about Cook is that he doesn't write his own jokes, he hires people to write them, then he performs them. So, his joke writers may have sold the same or similar jokes to other people.

    Frankly, I don't find Dane Cook funny. Watch sometime his performance on Saturday Night Live - he starts off with about 10 minutes of his stand-up routine, and there is dead silence. Even the band behind him looks bored.

    Dude, ALL comedians steal jokes. That's a pretty standard part of that business. There are actually jokes about the fact that comedians steal other comedians' jokes. And THOSE joke often get stolen.

    Every comedian steals jokes. It's part of the industry. They also come up with new ones but every single one of them has used a joke they heard somewhere else.
