But easing the pain of the Bluth family-sized hole in my life is the fact that most of the stars on the show have gone on to do hilarious and wonderful other projects. And, you know, the Arrested Development movie, will more...

It got me thinking about my own experiences getting into comedy under the shadow of Cook. Shortly after I started doing stand-up, I was talking shit about Dane Cook. It seemed, at the time, a rite of passage for new comics. It seemed that more...
