Named a "comedian phenom and icon" by Entertainment Weekly, Dane 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 a variety of film and television projects.
Dane will kick off the Under Oath Tour in Washington DC on September 12, 2013 and will wrap up in Dane’s hometown, Boston, MA on October 19, 2013. Dane will perform 18 shows at major venues across the country.
Dane will be donating 100% of his proceeds from the Boston, MA show to the Boston One Fund, www.onefundboston.org.
The “Under Oath” tour marks Dane’s first live tour since his highly successful “ISolated INcident” tour in 2009. Previously, Dane released seven comedy albums: Harmful If Swallowed; Retaliation; Vicious Circle; Rough Around The Edges: Live From Madison Square Garden; ISolated INcident; and Dane Cook: I Did My Best - Greatest Hits. Combining energetic physical comedy, clever wordplay and trenchant observations about human behavior, Cook’s unique brand of stand-up and accessible guy-next-door attitude have galvanized audiences of all ages. In 2006, Retaliation became the highest charting comedy album in 28 years and went double platinum, earning him a place alongside best-selling comedy vets Bill Cosby, George Carlin, and Steve Martin. After inking a multi-faceted production deal with HBO in 2006, Cook created, directed and starred in the network’s nine-part comedy documentary series, Tourgasm and wrote, executive produced and starred in Vicious Circle, a feature-length stand-up event.
Among his many honors as a stand-up comedian, Cook was named Rolling Stone Magazine's "Hot Comic," Stuff Magazine's "Coolest Comic of the Year," and the winner of Comedy Central's Standup 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."
