It’s been nearly two years, but he’s back. On Nov. 6, outspoken comedian and actor Dane Cook will bring his antics back to the Patriot Center with his ISolated INcident Global Thermo Comedy Tour.

Known for his outrageous observational humor, Cook has proven to be a smash hit among college students.

Starting his career in Los Angeles, Cook appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend in 1998. Since then, he has released five comedy albums and has toured successfully for each.

In 2004, his album Retaliation was the first comedy album in nearly thirty years to climb the Billboard charts, peaking at number four. This feat put him in the company of comedy greats like Bill Cosby. He is notable as being one of only two comedians to sell out the famed Madison Square Garden. For his latest release, titled ISolated INcident, Cook performed in front of a crowd of 30 at the Laugh Factory in Hollywood.

In addition to his successful stand-up career, Cook is also known for his acting. He has acted in over 20 movies, starring in such films as the cult classic Waiting…, Employee of the Month co-starring Jessica Simpson, and Good Luck Chuck. He also tried his hand at dramatic acting, starring alongside Kevin Costner in Mr. Brooks.

Cook’s live show is an eccentric and enthusiastic look at life. He is erratic and jumpy onstage, using body movements and noises to accompany his jokes.

In an interview, Cook said that he will go to great lengths onstage to make an audience get his jokes and laugh.

Tickets are available at the Patriot Center box office for $103, $63 and $33.

The box office is open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Tickets are also available at and by calling Ticketmaster Phonecharge at (703)-573-SEAT.
