Dane Cook Reviews
from Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Opening act and Dane were really funny but less than an hour and 15 min for both acts was really disappointing. At least 90 min or 2 hours would be better.

Ever since I bought my tickets last March, at $160 a pop,, my hubby, our two friends and I have been waiting with great anticipation for last night... The opening act was pretty good, but sadly, Dane Cook who was barely recognizable due to major weight gain, disappointed a lot of his fans by showing up on stage looking as he had just fallen out of bed, and by delivering a very short routine ( seemed like a very short show). While we had a Few good laughs, at $40/half hour, one would expect to have a solid energy packed good time without the mediocre bits... We came to see Dane Cook... and I’m not sure that’s who we really got... :-( I guess our expectations were high but the hot, energy packed dude who cracked us up non stop on TV just wasn’t there...The venue was good and we had a great view from the left side of section 11- row 9 or so.

My husband surprised me with tickets and I was really excited until..... let’s just say that the show starting 1/2 hour late was really annoying! The opening guy was ok, but Dane Cook was a real disappointment. I have been a huge fan for years but I’m looking at him a little differently now. Show was too short and it started too late. I try not to be too judgmental but we paid A LOT of $$ for that? Huh? I’m confused. Also the seating at the Chelsea was so tight I felt like the guy sitting next to me was sitting on my lap! Very very uncomfortable! Not having any Canadian whiskey was a real downer as well! Overall rating for the night “2”.

NOT THAT GREAT
The set was short, but what was really disappointing was the last bit which was 30 minutes long and not that funny. Sadly he went to low level sex jokes and stayed there after some good opening material. Too bad because there was a good size crowd Saturday night who were ready to get on board but it just didn't happen.

I THINK DANE WAS COOKIN'...!
I think it is a shame that fans from the Florida show felt the need to comment on Dane's weight, but everyone is a critic in this age of social media. I am a 60 year old female, who loved the 3/9/19 Boston show, do not give a damn how much Dane weighs, he still looks great...I was as impressed as I used to be by his comic timing / rhythm, his innate ability to rock the physical aspects of his show (he was bouncing back and forth from one side of the stage to the other, physical nuance is everything in comedy!) and his overall intelligence is enjoyable. He does focus on sex and semen a bit much for me, but his audience is mostly youngsters who appreciate that type of humor, so he is playing to his base, I can handle it, the positive greatly outweighs the negative...glad he is back and glad he is playing smaller venues, 'cause I ain't goin' to the Garden to see anyone anymore, not even the Great Dane! :) SueJ

DANE COOK - TAFT THEATER - 04/05/19
First off, Dane Cook was not old or fat, he looked good. As for the show, the guy that opened for him (Matt Rife) was pretty funny. I would recommend checking him out. Dane Cook came onto the stage and did not disappoint despite my expectations being so high. He was just as hilarious as he used to be back in the day (which was a Wednesday by the way). He was interactive with the crowd and done a lot of movements and sound effects with his jokes that always makes his jokes unique. He had a lot of new great relatable material with hints of his old stuff mixed in. It was an amazing show, and I'm so thankful after all these years that Dane Cook came out and did another tour so I could finally see him live.

DANE COOK MAY 4, 2019
I was disappointed in the Dane cook show at the Riverside in Milwaukee WI on Saturday night May 4, 2019. I watched almost every one of his online stand up comedy specials and have loved him for years. I was so looking forward to laugh my ass off. I looked around me and not many people were laughing that much or that hard. The first guy who open for him talked way too fast and I could hardly understand what he was saying. That was a Bore. I kind of wish I would not have seen the show because then I still would like Dane Cook. I’m not really that much of a fan anymore. When walking out hardly anybody was talking. People were not saying they liked it but they were not saying they did not like it. One would think if someone liked it they would be talking a lot about what they liked about it. I guess he’s older now so the material that he used to Touch On is in the past. I would not recommend going to see the show. I should have continued cutting my gras s I am doing my yardwork, instead of spending money on food and drinks before the show and spending the $55 for my ticket to see him. Sorry that I don’t have a lot of positives to say
