So I had the idea to put together something that's almost like a collection of highlight moments, which also says to fans that have been with me for maybe even upwards of twenty years, ' Thank you for all the support -- here's a great gift for everybody.' I'm really, really proud of it; it's an incredible collection. I think one of the most jarring aspects was my voice has changed quite a bit in the last ten years: it's gotten a lot deeper, and my Boston accent was much more apparent ten years ago.
Us: So it's like a love mixtape for your fans? When you put everything kind of side-by-side, we've mixed tracks where it's like, okay, you can tell this one is a bit earlier because I'm ti-uhhed [breaks out Boston accent].
He is known for his use of observational, often vulgar, and sometimes dark comedy.
He is credited as one of the first comedians to use a personal webpage and My Space to build a large fan base As an actor, Cook has appeared in films since 1997, including Mystery Men, Waiting..., Employee of the Month, Good Luck Chuck, Dan in Real Life, Mr. He also provided the lead voice role in the 2013 family film Planes, and its 2014 sequel Planes: Fire & Rescue.
Cook was raised in Arlington, Massachusetts, where he attended Arlington High School.
Cook has described himself as being "pretty quiet, pretty introverted, shy" as a child, although he was a "wild child" at home.
Might as well have been literally.” And stand-up comic and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon writer Ali Waller provided a more specific appraisal, saying, “Glad Dane Cook stopped by the Improv tonight, otherwise I'd never hear the story about how he ‘chainsaw-fucked’ a ‘disgusting whore's cunt.’” (Aww, you missed that? It was more than I could believe, and it was due in part to him… Good Luck Chuck and Vicious Circle sealed his fate in contemporary culture.
Yes, you missed that.) But no one offered a more detailed—or more scathing—review than comedian and actor T. Miller, who spent last night and much of this morning unspooling his assessment not only of Cook’s set, but his entire career and current state of mind. You've been doing standup for so many years and you still believe it’s okay to bomb and talk about your issues? And then last night, he got on stage and was vicious, misogynistic, cruel, and arrogant. He talked about finding some whore to fuck to take out his anger at his ex-girlfriend.
And the way you talk about women is disgusting and pathetic, but really just hurtful. [You] need all the luck in the world to realize you need to go to therapy & figure out how to not be a hateful person.
With starring roles in "Good Luck Chuck"(2007) and "Dan In Real Life" (2007), Cook is no stranger to the silver screen. Today, he designs all of his merchandise and also made the cover for his comedy album "Harmful If Swallowed" (2003). "Harmful If Swallowed" was Cook's first comedy album and went on to become certified platinum. His first break came when he appeared on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend," a stand-up comedy series, in 1998. Cook's follow-up to "Harmful If Swallowed" was 2005's "Retaliation." The comedy album went double platinum. Crazier yet, it was the first time in 29 years a comic had an album at No. A year later, the comedian found himself hosting the show again for its Season 32 premiere. On November 12, 2007, Cook became only the second comic to sell out Madison Square Garden. Regardless, only months later, Cook broke the record yet again by performing on stage for a shocking 7 hours. Throughout all his success, Cook has been disliked by several fellow comics, who felt Cook was unfunny and has an inflated ego.
This summer, the comic/actor returns as the voice of Dusty Crophopper in "Planes: Fire & Rescue." From his superhero audition to his embezzling brother, here are 21 things you probably don't know about Dane Cook. Dane Cook was born March 18, 1972 in Cambridge, Massachusetts to Donna Jean Ford and George F. Worse yet, many people have accused Cook of stealing several comedians' jokes, such as stand-up routines from Louis C. This ultimately led to a hilarious and heartfelt appearance by Cook on Louis C.
Cook's half-brother Darryl was Cook's business manager until 2008, when it was discovered that Darryl and his wife had embezzled millions of dollars from him.
Both were convicted and sentenced to prison for the embezzlement.
