SAN FRANCISCO, CA, March 9, 2009—Fresh on the heels of the announcement of his Comedy Central special and comedy album, ‘ISolated INcident,’ comedian Dane Cook has now announced plans to take his material on the road with the ‘ISolated INcident - Global Thermo Comedy Tour.’ Touted as the largest comedy tour in history, Cook will travel within the US, Canada, Africa, Brazil, Australia, UK and Germany. A local tour stop will take place on May 31st at the HP Pavilion at San Jose. Showtime for this event is 8pm.
"Taking this new tour around the world is a desire I've wanted to fulfill for sometime now, based on the tremendous response I received during the select few dates I have done internationally. To travel the globe and see beautiful places, while entertaining fans from every corner of the earth is massive. I promise tons of special surprises while looking forward to pushing myself very hard, performing around 100 shows over the next year, and in the process I hope to bank up some serious frequent flyer miles," said Cook.
Pre-sale tickets will be accessible to fans via a special password on both DaneCook.com and Ticketmaster.com starting Monday, March 9th at 10 am and will become available to the general public at 10 am Friday, March 13th.

After proving his star power in front of a combined live crowd of 70,000 people with two highly rated specials, “Vicious Circle” for HBO and “Rough Around the Edges” for Comedy Central, Cook has reinvented himself with ‘ISolated INcident’, where he shares his stand-up insights with a more intimate crowd. Now, he will once again entertain the masses in large venues on a worldwide scale.
Previously Cook created, directed and starred in HBO’s nine-part comedy documentary series, “Tourgasm” and wrote, executive produced and starred in “Vicious Circle,” a feature-length stand-up event. Additionally he has proved a strong force in the industry with his debut CD/DVD release, “Harmful If Swallowed” which has been certified platinum, his latest CD, “Rough Around The Edges,” which recently has hit gold status, and his sophomore release, “Retaliation,” which debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 and has reached double platinum standing.
