Product Description

Dane Cook receives a rock star's welcome from a packed arena in this stand-up concert originally broadcast on HBO. But the jury may still be out on whether Cook is phenomenally funny or simply a phenomenon. He is certainly a master of the new media. Cook has savvily marketed himself on the Internet to his target college-age audience, and they have embraced him as a fellow "bro" and "dude," who would seemingly be awesome to party with. In his timbre and physicality, he has the shaggy, likeable quality of Will Farrell, another frat boy favorite. Cook is a man of his people. At one point, he is interrupted by a drunken Boston Red Sox fan who wants to shake his hand. Cook then leaps off the stage and chases him up the aisle to give him a send-off hug, all the while being clapped on the back and offered high and low fives by the cheering audience. Cook comes complete with arrested development lingo, such as "Here's what drove me banana sandwich," that will no doubt be repeated around the dorm.

Don't look to Cook for satirical insights on politics, the war, or even pop culture. His world view is much narrower. In Vicious Circle he expounds on the pleasures and traps of lying, male crying, being sneezed on, his father's robe, bad relationships, and sundry sexual matters that cannot be printed here. Cook takes awhile to get where he's going, but his digressions are often funnier than the pay offs. He puts the brakes on one story during which he mimes driving a car to remark that if he were actually driving this way, he would be all over the road. During other bits, he parses the different spray modes on Windex, and takes the phrase "being cheated on" literally. And it takes some kind of associative genius to compare a certain female body part to a high school stage theatre curtain. The less than well received Employee of the Month aside, Cook is currently king of the comedy hill. Vicious Circle offers a time capsule look at these heady good times for the great Dane. As for where he goes from here, the good news is that Steve Martin once filled arenas like this. The bad news: So did Andrew Dice Clay. --Donald Liebenson

4.0 out of 5 stars Hardly "Vicious"--A Winning Performance By The Likable Dane Cook Oct. 19 2006
By K. Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
There's probably not a lot I can say about "Vicious Circle," Dane Cook's Boston performance in the round filmed for HBO. Whether or not you enjoy a one-man comedy concert largely depends on how much you enjoy the particular comedian. Dane Cook has obviously become huge in the last few years, and this concert showcase is very likely to please his fans.

Dane Cook is not the most cutting-edge comic, his material will never be construed as dark or dangerous. But what he has going for him is a real likability factor. He is a gifted storyteller assuming different voices and really throwing his whole body into the routine. In a goofy, non-threatening way--he's the guy you want to be your best friend, the class clown and the genial fratboy all rolled up into one.

The success of his comedy lies in the fact that he spins instantly recognizable scenarios. It is very easy to identify with him as a person, and it's easy to relate to his jokes. There is just something universal and true in most of his performance, so you can appreciate it and see yourself in his observations. Very watchable and entertaining, I enjoyed this concert. I think Dane is a great talent and my hope is for him to someday parlay his gift into making movies more worthy of his appeal (yes, I'm talking "Employee of the Month")! KGHarris, 10/06.

5.0 out of 5 stars You have to get this. Nov. 11 2006
By Stephanie Swist - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was at Dane's show and I suggest everyone should get this DVD. The 90 minute HBO special was hilarious, but you HAVE to watch the extended concert (the one I was at) because most of the funniest jokes of the night weren't even put in the 90 minute show. For example, the pumpkin bomb skit. So if you are a serious Dane fan, you have to get this, it's worth it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Eh, What happened? Oct. 22 2007
By J. Ryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Now, I'm not downing this man. Huge fan of the 1st CD... 2nd was okay. I've seen him live and he was hilarious, but this DVD is far from the top of his game. Only laughed at a few parts of the show. Maybe the main stream's bringing his game down, who knows, but I'm glad I got this as a gift and didn't pay for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dane Cook makes comedy worth watching again Nov. 8 2006
By C. Yang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I saw this show live when it was taped in Boston, and I can honestly say that Dane Cook never ceases to amaze me. It's easy to categorize his act as simply catering towards obnoxious frat boys, but Dane Cook has brought the life back to comedy with his unique approach and brilliant use of words. Not to mention that his delivery is always spot on. I had grown tired of the typical simplistic humor of the sort that has become the norm on SNL and other "comedy" shows. But Dane Cook's performances are refreshing to watch because he makes the act what it is; only he could perform his act and pull it off without looking like he's trying too hard. He is simply an amazing comedian and there is a reason why he was named one of Time's Top 100 Most Influential People and also one of Forbes' Top 100 Celebrities. This DVD is definitely worth the buy. He uses his classic material from previously released CD's (which never loses its hilariousness), but he also busts out a lot of new stuff that is just as good, if not better. So buy the DVD, see it in theaters on 11/27/06 if you can, and prepare yourself for non-stop laughs. Support the guy because he's awesome and he adores his fans! SUFI!!!
