A few days back, my friend handed me back a Dane Cook album that I had lent her years ago. Thing is, I didn't really want it back now. I had discovered so many different comedians since I bought that album that I now found him obsolete. I don't know, I guess my comedic taste has changed over time (perhaps improved...)
I left the album at her place. I'm not entirely sure I could get even a chuckle out of his material anymore. At this point, I don't even consider him a comedian; an enthusiastic storyteller perhaps, the fun guy at a party, but lacking the wit and lateral thinking a comedian keeps in his holsters.
I think I'll just leave it over there.
