"Seriously, if you get this cd and you don't preview it before you take it for a drive in your car, there is a likely chance that you will get into an accident from laughing so hard. I had to physically turn off my cd player in my car because I was laughing so hard in the first 8 minutes of the performance. NOT SAFE! Hahaha. But it's completely worth 10x the pruchase price, its one of the funniest cds I've ever heard. I'd kept hearing how funny Dane Cook is but I hate buying into hype right away so I wasn't in a rush to buy it. I'm sorry I waited. If you have ANY interest at all in the art form of COMEDY, buy this CD immedietly, but be forewarned about listening to it for the first time while driving... it's a hazard!"
5 STARS?? HOW ABOUT 10!!!!!

"I first saw Dane Cook on Comedy Central like most people, and he won me over from the start. I immediately searched amazon to see if he had a comedy cd out. Once i saw "Harmful If Swallowed" was out i instantly bought it without hesitation.
The cd itself is absolutely hilarious!!! My favorite tracks are his rants on how uncool Kool-Aid is and the quiet pickles lady at the "BK Lounge" drive-thru. It's the best to listen to any time, anywhere. Especially when sitting in traffic, it'll put a big smile on your face. If anyone tries to cut you off you won't be cursing, you'll be laughing when u catch yourself saying "ummm... helllllooooo???!, ummm hiii???!!" as Dane points out on the cd.
I've demanded my friends to watch the dvd and every single one has cried from laughter. It's got an unedited version of his comedy central special, with ALOT of deleted jokes - which i was surprised were cut from the show b/c they are way too funny!! I, myself, can't sit through it without my stomach hurting by the end. Do yourself a favor and buy this cd/dvd combo. It's a great deal and the comedy never gets tired or old after a few plays! GO BUY IT!"
I'm not sure it's possible to put this cd into words...

"Dane Cook is the funniest man alive. That sentence pretty much sums up my feelings on this cd. Old fans and new fans alike will not be disappointed by this re-release. Dane's jokes never cease to make me crack up and the bonus joke had me laughing so hard I almost crashed my car the first time I heard it. The dvd does not disappoint either. The un-edited, hour long version of the Comedy Central performance was hilarious. It was worth the wait to see the whole thing but they should have given a genius like Dane a full hour special to begin with. The cd/dvd combo is modestly priced so everyone should rush out and buy it immediately!!!"
Going to buy it...

"I like to read user reviews before purchasing anything and I have to say, there aren't a whole lot here that I can really count on. You have two sides: those who LOVE Dane Cook and those who LOATHE him. The loathers of the group seem to think that all comedians should be insightful, political, have a real message. My love for comedy is complete. My tastes range from Dennis Miller, Lewis Black and George Carlin to Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and Dave Atell. I LOVE TO LAUGH. That's all that matters. I'm not the most intelligent person in the world, nor am I the dumbest, but I don't think that liking Dane Cook lowers my IQ in any way. And something I found that I do with Dane Cook that I don't do with other comics...I repeat his jokes in my everyday life. His observations about everyday, random things are so dead on that when I come across those situations, I have to laugh and repeat a Dane-ism. If you don't like Dane Cook, fine. But don't belittle and disparage those who do. Everyone's tastes are different.
Those who LOVE Dane Cook are biased. Dane could do nothing but hum on his CD and they will think he's a "Genius". Do I think Dane Cook is hilarious? Hell yeah! Do I think he's the greatest comedian EVER? No. Do I think he's the funniest comic right now? I'd have to say...yes. I have watched Vicious Circle about 8 times in two weeks, so yeah; he's my comic of choice right now. And because of that, I will buy his CD/DVD's. I will buy his book coming out and I will buy Vicious Circle when it's released. "
Your IQ has nothing to do with finding him entertaining...
"After reading quite a few of the negative reviews on here, I noticed that quite a few of them made comments that insulted the intelligence of the people that enjoy Dane's material. I find this to be very insulting. I may not be the smartest person on the planet, but I can guarantee you that my IQ does not fall into the "middle to low range" as one reviewer has suggested.
While Dane's comedy may not suit everyone, he sure does seem to entertain quite a few people. Is he the wittiest or most clever comedian out there? No, but he delivers some very entertaining routines. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because some(not all) of his stuff on the CD part requires you to actually see him to get the full effect, but again that's not really his fault since it is only a CD. Plus, I do think he overdoes it a little on some of the stand-up on the DVD.
Overall though, he is a really great comedian. The first time I heard this CD, I was on a roadtrip with some friends(I was the driver). Not the smartest thing to do. I was laughing extremely hard at times that it was hard to focus on actually driving. The first time I actually saw his standup was on the Comedy Central presents... The part that really did it in for me was the "why did you stop and let me hit you at a legal red light!" routine(not exactly verbatim but you get the idea). Once I heard the "that tire hunted Mary down!" track, I was hooked.
While the 1st few minutes of the CD start off kind of weak, Dane quickly picks up the pace and doesn't slow down til the end. I would highly recommend this CD/DVD for fans that like silly, non-serious comedy. If you try to overanalyze things too much, then maybe you should borrow somebody else's copy before buying it.
I am highly anticipating his new DOUBLE CD/ DVD coming out on July 26th. I have my standards very high and I believe that Dane will definitely let me write another good review.
Oh and I just remembered one more of the other negative reviewer's comment of how they can't successfully repeat a joke to a friend and get a laugh. My response: If you could deliver a joke as well as the actual comedian, then what is the point in the comedian actually being there. Very few comedians these days actually just stand there and tell a joke in a monotone voice. Most comedians do change their voices around and require you to actually see them before you can fully appreciate the joke.
Get over yourselves and thinking you are more intelligent than everyone that likes him just because you don't. Everybody is entitled to their own opinions and there is no need to insult them because they may not agree with you."
