Remember Dane Cook? He was the briefly popular bromedian who disappeared after being busted for stealing much of his act from other comics.
These days, Dane is launching a comeback (hopefully with original material), and he sat down with Andy Cohen last night to promote his upcoming standup special that we're guessing is titled Dane Cook: Still a Douche!
Years ago, there were rumors that Dane dated Jessica Simpson, but now it looks as though they were just co-stars on the justly-forgotten 2006 film Employee of the Month.
These days, of course, Jessica is married with two kids and a thriving fashion empire. But that doesn't mean she's above being burned by a prematurely washed-up hack she worked with eight years ago!
Asked by Cohen about "the dumbest thing Jessica said" on set (a leading question, in fairness), Dane responded, "She said one day, 'Are we making a movie?'"
Okay, that's a pretty dumb thing to say, but we have no idea of the context, and is Dane really in a position to be burning bridges?
Cohen then asked Cook how many college groupies he's slept with, and Cook replied, "I'd say a few hundred." Stay classy, Dane!
Of course, none of this is bad as the time Cook joked about the Colorado theater shooting. Or the time he joked about nude photos of an underage Vanessa Hudgens. Or even the time Joe Rogan caught him stealing the jokes that made his career from lesser known comics.
Sigh...Do we really have to endure an attempted Dane Cook comeback? Sure he's unintentionally funny, but who wants to pay to see that?
