I know what you're thinking. It's a virtual laugh FACTORY so when you haven't said anything funny in 20 years, it's time to replace some parts on the assembly line. Turns out though, he's just an enormous ass. From the Daily News: Stand-up comic Dane Cook has gotten the hook from one of his longtime stomping grounds. The 43-year-old comedian has been banned from the Hollywood branch of The Laugh Factory for allgedly cursing out a waitress, Entertainment Tonight reported. Sources told the entertainment show that Cook became even more beligerent when he was confronted over his conduct by the club’s owner. During a heated argument, Cook was allegedly overheard screaming, “I own this place!” The real owner, however, apparently disagreed, leveling a permanent ban. The Laugh Factory has been the site of some of Cook’s most successful standup gigs, including his record-setting Jan. 1, 2008, stint when he performed onstage for seven straight hours. While Cook has been one of the hottest comics on the standup circuit since emerging in the ‘90s, he has been less visible in recent years on the big screen. Most recently, he’s loaned his voice to Disney’s animated “Planes” films and starred in a Showtime special in 2014. A rep for Cook could not be reached for comment.
