Dane in Real Life

Dane Cook has been, without a doubt, the most popular comedian of the past decade. No one else has the platinum records, the Hollywood roles, or the consistently sold-out arenas. His rowdy shows, filled with passionate, screaming fans, make him some cross between a rock star and a professional wrestler — who tells long stories filled with dick jokes. He’s also the most hated comic in America. There’s something about the mass appeal of his particular blend of physical comedy (some call it spasming) that just rubs some people the wrong way, be it the observational bathroom humor, designer T-shirts, self-promotion, or hair gel. Either way, you can judge for yourself at 8 p.m. at BankAtlantic Center (1 Panther Pkwy., Sunrise). The show will mark the end of his yearlong “ISolated INcident” tour and the last time he will ever perform this material. Tickets through ticketmaster.com cost $37.75 to $102.75.
