Calling Dane Cook a "comedian" is an insult to funny people worldwide.

I don't care how many people he "took care of," as you put it. I stand by my statement.

A great message would have been 20 years in prison or the death penalty. Guys do 5 years for stealing $80 bucks from a variety store.

Dane can now go and drop a bunch of F bombs and make more money. He is a nice guy but humor wise he is no big talent.

Dane is worth $80 million or so. He is a rock star comedian meaning he sells out concert size arenas. He doesn't play comedy clubs these days he plays places like the Boston Garden. He trusted this relative to invest etc. and I think that can happen to anyone.

RIP Knoxie. As far as the idea of somebody stealing from Cook, that's just karma.
