    shotty, I know we've got this whole "agree to disagree" vibe going, but Dane Cook is not funny, and that is not arguable outside shouting distance of a frathouse.
     
  2. Second that, too.

    You'll notice I hesitated before saying it. Because I felt the same way ... until I saw his HBO special.

    Which was painfully unfunny.

    Which parts didn't you laugh at, the parts where he didn't tell jokes and instead made goofy noises, or the parts where he didn't tell jokes and told emo stories meant to highlight nonexistent universal foibles of relationships?

    OK. I withdraw Dane Cook. But you all can put Sarah Silverman in the same category, then.

    I heart Sarah Silverman. Mostly because I talk like she does (not nasally, but topic-wise). I like a good crass woman who can still be hot.

    I heart her.

    I've only seen her in The Aristocrats; her bit about being raped by Joe Franklin was just dumb.

    Funny is in the eyes of the beholder, of course.

    That said, the Rolling Stone profile I read on Silverman did not leave me particularly floored with her insight on her comedy, or life in general. She seems pretty uncomfortable with any role outside of sheer pariah, which would explain her performance in School of Rock.

    I think IJAG sums it up well: People like the idea of her. Some cute, rich Jewish girl playing dirty. Comedy as an image. Interesting concept.
