Entertainment Tonight reports that comedian Dane Cook has been permanently banned from Hollywood’s Laugh Factory comedy club – for life.
The source told ET that the ban comes after the 43-year-old used vulgar, offensive language toward a waiter and when the owner approached Cook, he yelled, “I own this place!”
Cook has been a regular at the Laugh Factory for several years and made it his home base to work on new material. Known for breaking records, on April 10, 2007, he set the factory’s endurance record by performing on stage for three hours and 50 minutes. Although fellow comedian Dave Chappelle broke that record five days later, Cook made history there again by performing on stage for seven straight hours on Jan. 1, 2008.
Cook’s camp has yet to respond.
