℗ 2009 Comedy Central Records
ISolated INcident (Deluxe Version) Tracklist:
This is comedy at its purest! I'm a big DC fan and I've been listening to him for about 3 years now, and this stuff is hysterical. I couldnt breathe from laughter while listening to "Big Shot", I had to hold my ribs and everything to keep myself from dying of laughter, THATS how funny it was.
I'm a huge fan of dane cooks earlier stuff, but in my humble opinion, this album is horrible. He's lost the fun randomness that makes him great. This is more a cd full of stores which alludes to Dane's believe in his own superiority than it is a comedy album.
Dane Cook is one of my favorite comedians. He's is so random and thats what makes him funny. Some of his material may be inappropriate for a younger audiance. iTunes should put up a video version of these though because during his proformance he does gestures and such that isnt transferred well using just audio. Other than that though this is just great!
Whether you like it or not, Dane Cook has probably said 3 funny jokes in his life. He's not a real comedian and he will never be. You want your side split, listen to George Carlin, Jim Gaffigan, Brian Regan, Bill Cosby or maybe even some of the guys from the Blue Collar Comedy Tour. Anything beats this. Plus, dropping the f bomb just because you can isn't funny. George Carlin makes good use of it, and he's probably looking up at you with extreme dislike.
I think Dane's still got his stuff. The crowd could have been nonexistant, but otherwise i thought it was great. I lot of people would disagree with me but i'm pretty happy about this album.
I just saw isolated incident live in my home town last night. I didn't want to buy or even listen to this before having seen it in person because that would have taken a lot of punch out of his jokes knowing what he'll say next. I have to agree with some of the others that this is not of the same calibur we are used to from Dane Cook. He just doesn't bring the same energy anymore like he used to. As a big DC fan I would still get this but be ready to be dissatisfied since the spark and enery is missing. Everything he said was hilarious don't get me wrong, but he could have delivered with much more enthusiasm as we're used to. SUFI!
I think nowadays, all Dane does is rely on 'I'm dane cook, people think I'm hilarious, and women think I'm hot". That, and the constant swearing. The first half of the album, I admit, was quite funny, but once he started with the sex talk, it went downhill from that. It just isn't funny, the entire second half is just trash that I personally don't want to hear. It's not hard to joke about sex, but he goes way too far.
I can't tell you how excited I was to watch this when it aired on TV. I was waiting for months for this to show. After surviving the full hour I had never been so let down in my life. I pretty much have all of his material memorized and loved it all. But this routine is just awful. I am sorry Dane, but hopefully you come out with better stuff next time. I think you should give up the acting and focus on comedy...because since you took up acting both that and your material has hit an all-time low.
Ok i admit, DC is the best. Im a huge fan. But i think after watching and hearing this album, it made me lose interest in him. It only had a few funn jokes in it. The rest was just down-right inappropriate. Dane, really, u need to get back in the game. This album harmed u in some way.
To be fair, to each-his own. What makes 1 laugh may not seem funny to another. DC is like the show 'Family Guy',you either understand, not offended, and find that humor funny, or you hate it. And if DC has taken material from "older" comedians who aren't on the stage anymore, so what? The point is, he must be delivering it in a "dane" way that his fans find funny; some of which have only heard the material from Dane 1st time anyway, based on the average college-aged audience he appeals to. On the other hand, it is my opinion that he IS talented, he's just trying too hard. Retaliation and Vicious Circle were great. I'm a Family Guy fan but I think that he can be funnier by removing some of the trash from the act. BTW, I'll be watching ISolated INcident tonight on Comedy Central..I'll be back at 11pm EST to give my feedback....
I know Dane Cook isn't for everyone, however I find him hilarious! I just saw him about 3 weeks ago in Seattle and was far from dissapointed. He is crude and some material isn't appropriate for all audiences but if you understand that before you listen to him and accept it before hand then you'l go in with a better chance of enjoying it. I love Dane Cook and can't wait for more material to be released!
Dane Cook is funny - in every other comedy act but this one. I'm pretty sure I only laughed once and it was during the Obama segment. That's it. I don't know what happened, but Dane lost it here.
stand up in isolated incident was kinda weak. it was different than the square garden stand up, it just seemed like he wasnt hyperactive and energetic to make his jokes more live, but it did have some moments. dane cook still rules
Dane Cook is probably the best known comedian out there. He is the best and funniest. I do like this album but i think Vicious Circle is better. The B&E skit is the best! and the Kool Aid skit from Harmful If Swallowed.
I believe Dane has done it again. I had a parent that died of cancer, and the way he puts a twist on it, it's just great. You don't find too many people who can joke about death, and I believe he has done well. I'm not a fan of the W.W.Y.D.I.?? skit. None the less, I think he did great! Kudos to you, Mr. Cook.
I love Dane Cook.....or rather, I did....until this. I saw this routine on Comedy Central and I was SO excited! I usually laugh myself silly at his material, and even work out to his earlier routines because he made it easier to get through 45 minutes on the eliptical. But this? This is awful! I don't like comedians that make me feel uncomfortable, and this made me extremely uncomfortable. I don't get offended easily, but wow. This is Dane at his most bitter (at what?? who knows), his most angry (at what??), and his most vile. If you like that sort of thing, you'll love this. If not, maybe wait for Dane to go back to the humorous side of life, or.... find a new comedian. Which is what I plan to do.
isolated Incident was pretty good. it was orginal and of course: funny. but i thought tht there was to much jokes about sex and porn and tht kinda stuff. dont get me wrong tht stuff's funny but still, i think its a bit much. its no vicious circle but its good
A comedian with a unique view and interpretation about the world who can make the simplest of things entertaining and funny... but isolated incident seems like a rushed and uninspired show created simply for the purpose of being created... it exists without the heart, soul and energy of his early stuff and is simply not on par with his old work. I am a huge fan, and if your are, listen and enjoy. i personally look forward to more. But where his older work is on an epic scale that can be quoted and recognized by millions... there is nothing stand out about this one unfortunately... although it will still entertain.
i found a few parts of this to be funny. namely, the sections i preveiwed on iTunes, and the smaller crowd was a breath of fresh air.(i think what i appreciated the most was the absence of the thousands of screaming women!) but THEN i saw it on tv. he just kept goin about how great Obama is...... i didnt finish the special. i gave this an extra star cuz i laughed at the 8 minutes i previewed on iTunes.
