Dane Cook on the Aurora Shooting
Never mind that gunman James Holmes killed 12 moviegoers and wounded 58 more during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, Colorado, on July 20, 2012 — the whole tragedy is just a setup for a gem of a Dane Cook joke!
The comedian spewed the misguided "humor" at a July 26, 2012, stand-up gig at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles.
"So I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into the movie. And I don't know if you've seen the movie, but the movie is pretty much a piece of crap. Yeah, spoiler alert. I know that — if none of that would have happened — pretty sure that somebody in that theater, about 25 minutes in, realizing it was a piece of crap, was probably like 'Ugh, f—king shoot me.'"
