Less than a week after the Colorado massacre, comedian Dane Cook took to the Laugh Factor on Thursday night and cracked a joke about the shootings that left 12 people dead:
“So I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into the movie … And I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the movie is pretty much a piece of crap … yeah, spoiler alert.”
Cook continued … “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.’”
Too soon, Dane. Too soon.
Tragedy + Time = Comedy.
It also doesn’t help that nobody finds you funny in the first place.
