Erick Lindgren Pwns Dane Cook

Erick Lindgren's bankroll > Dane Cook's?

Listen, nobody likes Dane Cook. That's pretty well established. With the exception Dane's turn in Dan in Real Life (something we like to call the Tom Arnold True Lies Exception), Cook hasn't done one remotely redeeming thing in his entire entertainment career.

Apparently Erick Lindgren agrees. From the 2+2 forum:

Erick Lindgren and some friends went to a comedy show with Dane Cook as the headliner. Ten minutes into the Dane Cook set Lindgren et. al left the building because they didn't really think that Dane Cook was funny. Dane from the stage, in a large building, says:

"Where the hell are you all going?!?"

"We're leaving because your show sucks and you're not funny," responds Erick.

"Just walk back out that door to the unemployment line!"

"You know what? I am unemployed, have been for a long time, and make more money than you do. If I had my own Showtime special then I might even be funny too."

Fucking Erick Lindgren.

While we're not 100% sure what Dane did after that, we are 100% sure (with apologies to Tami from Real World II) that "it wasn't NOT funny."

UPDATE: Confirmed to be Erick Lindgren. He left after 15 minutes, retorting to Cook that he and crew were going down the street to find a funny comedian (i.e. nothing about a Showtime special).

    Wicked Chops for Christ would you post something new so we don’t have to talk about Dane Cook. Don’t even know why that guy has a career.

    I happen to like Dane Cook and find him hilarious. The only reason people don’t like Dane Cook is because they choose not to.
    The times we live in have created people who will hate something simply because everyone else likes it.
    So to keep this short, all you who bash Dane Cook can go to hell because you are simply either to stupid to get the humor or are following the mainstream idea of being different.

    Or because he’s a tard, and a totally not funny tard at that.

    Maybe, just maybe, it’s you that is too stupid to recognize true humour when you hear/see/feel it.

    I agree. Same with almost all art and entertainment. Just ask yourself this simple question: is it a better feeling to enjoy or to hate something?
