Victim of his own succes - Dane Cook - LOVED or HATED?

The famous comedian Dane Cook has become a victim of his own success.

The American stand up comedian and film actor, born on March 18, 1972, has released five comedy albums: Harmful If Swallowed, Retaliation, Vicious Circle, Rough Around The Edges: Live From Madison Square Garden, and Isolated Incident. Retaliation became the highest charting comedy album and went platinum.
Cook performed an HBO special in the Fall of 2006, Vicious Circle, a straight-to-DVD special titled Rough Around The Edges (which is included in the album of the same name), and a Comedy Central special in 2009 titled Isolated Incident.

As an actor, Cook has appeared in films since 1997, including Mystery Men, Waiting..., Employee of the Month, Good Luck Chuck, Dan in Real Life, Mr. Brooks (in a non-comedic role), and My Best Friend's Girl.

He is credited as one of the first comedians to use a personal webpage and MySpace to build a large fan base and in 2006 was described as "alarmingly popular".

Dane Cook has millions of fans, 3.5 million followers on Facebook, 2.6 million on MySpace and 1.5 million on Twitter.

But with so impressive numbers comes great expectations.Well almost too great.

Being so successful and also a charming handsome man, Cook always arouses envy around him.Even between him and other comedians.

Other comedians have accused Cook of stealing their material.

But Cook, who is delightful an open in conversations, pays no mind to the haters.

"It's always been there, it's always going to be there," Cook, 38, said of the pressure to succeed. "There's always going to be the people that embrace you and fill an arena, and there's going to be people outside throwing an egg at it."

Cook says he will produce film and TV for the first time next year, and expects to direct a series of short films. He will also make his Broadway debut next year, in a production of Neil LaBute's Fat Pig, without abandoning his career as a stand up comedian.

Oh dear God! I say this is going to bring him more "lovers and haters". I guess it is difficult being Dane Cook, these days!
