Dane Cook 'Isolated Incident - Global Thermo Comedy Tour' Hits Sprint Center on May 16

Fresh on the heels of the announcement of his Comedy Central special and comedy album, ‘Isolated Incident,’ comedian Dane Cook brings his highly anticipated ‘Isolated Incident - Global Thermo Comedy Tour’ to Sprint Center on May 16. Touted as the largest comedy tour in history, Cook will travel within the US, Canada, Africa, Brazil, Australia, UK and Germany.

"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 and a show that pushes the boundaries of international stand-up. I’m 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.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, March 13 via Ticketmaster Outlets, or charge by phone at 800-745-3000. In the event tickets remain, tickets will be available at Sprint Center Box Office beginning Monday, March 16 at 10 a.m. Tickets are priced at $30, $50, $75, $100, with special VIP packages available.

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, as well as with his sophomore effort, “Retaliation, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 and has reached double platinum status, and his latest CD, “Rough Around The Edges,” which recently has been certified gold.
