NEW YORK, January 14, 2008 – Dane goes digital! COMEDY CENTRAL Records releases Dane's Cook's “Vicious Circle” audio digitally on January 29th. iTunes and most digital audio providers will offer the uncut audio performance.
Superstar comic Dane Cook comes home to Boston in his first-ever solo HBO concert! Performing at the TD Banknorth Garden in front of 18,000 fervent fans, Cook delivers a hilarious, high-energy routine, touching on such universal issues as the therapeutic value of a good lie, the sincerity behind a post-sneeze “God bless you,” cheating and its value in relationships and the shock and awe of seeing your father's genitals for the first time.

Combining energetic physical comedy, clever wordplay and trenchant observations about human behavior, Dane Cook's unique brand of stand-up comedy and accessible guy-next-door attitude have galvanized audiences of all ages. Named a "comedian phenom and icon" by Entertainment Weekly, Cook has maintained his reputation as one of today's most prolific stand-up comedians while simultaneously distinguishing himself as a charismatic and versatile actor. In 2007, Cook starred in his first leading role as the likable slacker Zack in "Employee of the Month." After inking a multi-faceted production deal with HBO last year, he created, directed and starred in the network's nine-part comedy documentary series, "Tourgasm" and wrote, executive-produced and starred in "Vicious Circle." Recently, Cook entertained audiences in the romantic comedy "Good Luck Chuck" with Jessica Alba and in the thriller, "Mr. Brooks" with Kevin Costner, Demi Moore and William Hurt.
He began his career at age 18, honing his craft on the college and comedy club circuits and became one of the first comics to develop and maintain his own Web site to reach out to audiences. Among many awards and accolades, Cook was named Rolling Stone Magazine's "Hot Comic," Stuff Magazine's "Coolest Comic of the Year" and was the winner of COMEDY CENTRAL's "Stand-up Showdown." Last year, his arrival on the cultural stage was confirmed when Time Magazine listed him as one of the world's 100 "Most Influential People." He has appeared multiple times on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and "The Tonight Show." Last year, Cook hosted the season premiere of "Saturday Night Live," helping the program earn the highest non-sports ratings of any network that year.
