Retaliation [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Dane Cook's Retaliation is a fantastic combination of this hyper, cutting comedian's talents and the Comedy Central record label's fantastic attitude toward packaging. Here, fans get "100 minutes of new material" on the audio portion (new to CD anyway, as some of these routines are already Cook classics for bootleg-trading fans) and just about every appearance the "Dane Train" has made on the Comedy Central network. The network's handling of the late Mitch Hedberg was a little better since the CD/DVD combo barely overlapped at all, but ingesting Cook's ramblings on his car crash fetish twice is no big deal since listening to him and watching him are entirely different ...

Dane Cook's Retaliation is a fantastic combination of this hyper, cutting comedian's talents and the Comedy Central record label's fantastic attitude toward packaging. Here, fans get "100 minutes of new material" on the audio portion (new to CD anyway, as some of these routines are already Cook classics for bootleg-trading fans) and just about every appearance the "Dane Train" has made on the Comedy Central network. The network's handling of the late Mitch Hedberg was a little better since the CD/DVD combo barely overlapped at all, but ingesting Cook's ramblings on his car crash fetish twice is no big deal since listening to him and watching him are entirely different experiences. He treats the stage like the Mick Jagger of comedy, strolling back and forth, flailing arms, and shaking his hips. His intense energy overshadows some of his most stinging verbal darts, making the two CDs included just as vital as the DVD. He's shocking, sometimes gross, sometimes cocky to a fault, but he's incredibly brilliant and takes observational humor in a vicious, cathartic direction that few comedians have attempted. The jokes seem like they're erupting out of him like the chest-buster in Alien and with so many stinging lines flying past the listener, Retaliation not only stands up to repeat listening, it demands it. Sometimes he repeats especially witty lines twice in a self-congratulatory way that undermines the punch, but this slight annoyance is miniscule when you realize 100 riveting minutes of one man barking just passed by like it was ten. The creepy guy at work with fat in all the wrong places, the one person in your group of friends that nobody likes, and the people you don't know who turn around in your driveway all get their due in a stinging way that should have them helplessly twitching on the floor for days. The audio would earn this collection a recommendation on its own, but add a DVD of Cook's appearances on Crank Yankers, Shorties Watchin' Shorties, and various other Comedy Central productions and you've got a fan's dream. Cook's in-your-face style is love-him-or-loathe-him, but if you love him, Retaliation is everything you could ask for and more.

    Amazing audio

    Dane Cook is arguably the most hilarous comedian ever. Granted to get the full effect you have to see his gestures and facial expressions. Nevertheless, his material is awesome. He'll keep you laughing every 30 seconds. Dane Cook's acts are rate R for vulgarity and lasciviousness, so bible thumpers beware. All others should buy it.

    how can't you like this??

    Dane Cook is comic genius. If this album doesn't have you in stiches, you're probably influenced by people who think anything that isnt indie isnt good. but Dane Cook is really... really good. and this is coming from a guy that is more indie than free money. buy this album so he can afford his dream house.

    You'll laugh so hard, it's not even "funny"!

    WHAT A GREAT CD! You have to get this CD. I don't care if you don't know who Dane Cook is, haven't heard his material, or don't think it will be funny. Retaliation is hilarious. It's a great 2 CD/1 DVD package for an incredible price! This CD/DVD will have you laughing so hard for hours upon hours. Dane Cook is an incredibly talented and incredibly funny comedian. He tells some of the funniest stories/jokes that I've ever heard. If you need some laughter and fun in your life, there is only one simple thing you need to do...BUY THIS CD!!!! IT WON'T LET YOU DOWN!

    The Dane Train's in Motion

    This is an awesome follow up to Harmful if Swallowed (which you should also get). Dane Cook is a comedian who never sticks to just one style. He's got variety and his timing is perfection. If you love comedy you will LOVE Dane Cook! SuFi!!!!!!

    Impossible not to enjoy

    I've been a Dane Cook fan for awhile and this CD is a fantastic addition to all the other BK Lounge stories. Don't listen to this while driving - you'll go right off the road!
