NEW YORK, April 30, 2009 — Dane Cook is the quintessential example of someone who is never afraid to take huge risks when it comes to his career. COMEDY CENTRAL gears up for the highly-anticipated world television premiere of Dane Cook’s all-new stand-up special, “ISolated INcident,” debuting Sunday, May 17 at 10:00 P.M.
The world television premiere of “Dane Cook: ISolated INcident” will be sponsored by Dave & Busters.
In the unprecedented commercial-free COMEDY CENTRAL stand-up premiere, viewers will follow Cook on a unique comedy journey, as the performance was captured with a single camera, using only one, raw, unedited take. Coming off his last two highly-rated specials, where he performed in front of a combined 70,000 people, Cook reinvented his act and took it to the stage in the most intimate way in front of 400 people at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood on the Sunset Strip. The material that Cook performs in “ISolated INcident” is in a completely different tone from his usual performances and includes brand new, cutting-edge material that pushes the envelope to its highest level. Throughout the show, the audience was taken into a unique nightclub atmosphere while watching an authentic real-time performance. Get ready for a groundbreaking comedy event unlike any other!
Through COMEDY CENTRAL Records, Cook’s stand-up releases have achieved major success with “Harmful If Swallowed” certified platinum, “Retaliation” certified double platinum and “Rough Around the Edges” certified gold. The CD release of “ISolated INcident” will hit stores Tuesday, May 19.
