And the truth is finally REVEALED!!!

The Laugh Factory seems to be a dangerous place for a lot of comedians that have a tendency to stomp past the line of decency.
Back in 2006, Seinfeld's Michael Richardson went on an infamous racist rant at the club while responding to a heckler. More recently, Dane Cook received backlash from fans and comedians alike after a "vicious, misogynistic, cruel, and arrogant" set, but now it's Comedy Central star Daniel Tosh's turn to feel the heat.
The comedian apparently made some VERY insensitive comments about rape jokes always being funny last Friday and one woman spoke up by saying, "Actually, rape jokes are never funny!"
A Tumblr account, which details the offended woman's experience at the El Lay comedy club, explained:
Well someone's left hand is looking a little empty!
The 50-year-old actor was spotted on the California set on Tuesday with a smile on his face and later, laughing with the crew, all the time noticeably NOT wearing his wedding ring.
He'll be busy shooting the sci-fi flick in the mountains this week, which should provide enough beautiful scenery and hot temperatures to keep his mind off of his personal troubles.
The big budget movie
Dane Cook has conquered stage, film and might have a hit television series on NBC this fall. But before he becomes a misogynistic radio DJ in Next Caller Please, the comedian will return to the stage to make his theater debut as Franz Liebkind in The Producers.
In case you haven't seen Mel Brooks' comedic musical or any of the film versions (SHAME!), Cook's character is the deranged ex-Nazi who writes the titular characters' surefire flop, Springtime for Hitler: A Gay Romp with Adolf and Eva at Berchtesgaden.
He'll be joining other notable celeb cast members like
Sounds like Dane is gonna need get his PR people workin' overtime to clean up this mess before his comedy series hits NBC!
Two nights ago, Dane Cook performed an impromptu stand-up set at El Lay's Laugh Factory, and both audience members AND fellow comedians were NOT impressed.
Here's what comedian Daniel Kinno had to say about it:
We haven't heard from good ol' Dane Cook in a while, except his hilarious run-in with Louis C.K. on his show Louie, and that he tours a lot.
Well, it turns out that it's because Dane has been working his own comedy series, and he just ink'd a deal with NBC to bring it to the small screen!
Not much is known about it yet, but it's being slated for next fall. And, of course, it'll be a comedy. And he'll star in it. It'll be a half hour show, and it had interest from other networks before NBC put a ring on it.
Good luck Dane! We have
high moderate expectations!
We hope it doesn't have a laugh track!
