Who the hell is Dane Cook?

I don't know who he is, and I don't care. But he proves that it only takes a tad bit of talent to become a celebrity. Here is an article on the secret to his success:
Cook grew up with a brother and five sisters in Arlington, Mass., graduating from high school in 1990, skipping college to do six nights a week of stand-up in local clubs. Soon he was earning $100 a night. In 1995 his manager secretly invited ABC network execs to a New York gig, which led to a pilot for a hidden-camera reality show. It wasn't picked up, but Cook got $75,000.
