Dane Cook Is Hanging Up the Mic For a While


You might not have noticed that Dane Cook hasn’t been performing or writing any standup since February, but it’s true. He says he’s “taken it everywhere I’ve wanted to take it” and wants to focus instead on projects like the dramatic indie film Answers to Nothing and, of course, his upcoming NBC sitcom premiering in the fall. Be careful when you read that profile if you’re committed to hating Dane Cook, though, because its description of his financial struggles after his parents both died and his brother-slash-business manager screwed him over might actually make you feel a little sympathetic for him. Just a little.
