Dane Cook Cracks Joke About Colorado Shooting: Too Soon? Too Unfunny?

by at . Comments

Six days after the Colorado shooting in Aurora that killed 12 people, Dane Cook took to the stage at The Laugh Factory in Los Angeles and cracked a joke about the massacre.

An incredibly unfunny joke, no less.

"So I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into the movie," Cook said of James Holmes. "And I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the movie is pretty much a piece of crap...

"I know that if none of that would have happened, pretty sure that somebody in that theater, about 25 minutes in, realizing it was a piece of crap, was probably like ‘ugh f-cking shoot me.’”

Ummm... cue laughter?

What do you think of Cook making this crack?

23 JulDane Cook� Please help comedian Caleb Medley who was seriously injured in the Aurora massacre. His wife gave birth today. No one made a big deal out of all the tacky 9/11 jokes. Cook wears his ♥ on his sleeve


Ohhh.... so that's why he steals jokes from real comedians.


Yeah, joking about the Aurora shooting is totally a great idea. Especially because the youngest victim was like 6. That makes it even more hilarious, right? I think I preferred it when he was stealing jokes, if this is what happens when he makes his own material. :|


haha that was kinda funny


Shame on you Dane Cook. That's worse than Daniel Tosh's jokes about rape.


also...the movie was fucking awesome btw.


What an ASS!!! I have always thought he was not funny and now he really proves it!


Friends and families commemorated for what they figured would be an innocent and enjoyable trip to the movies. Instead, they were gunned down. Most are traumatized for life, others are maimed, and the rest will never see the light of day day again. That sure is hilarious, Dane...


I met this guy in peson once in Boston. Total douche!


omg he needs to think before he speaks that was way out of line. maybe people should get up an leave an ask for their money back. people like him have total lapse in judgement an need to think before he speaks really it was insensitive an just wrong. i bet if he had had family or friends there that were injured or shot he would not have done it. but since it didn't affect him he being the self centered not funny person he is decided to make a joke out of a very serious situation. no respect for him just saying i didn't like him to start with an like him even less now.
