Today I am posting a blog on behalf of my favorite comedian, Dane Cook.
He has come a long way and worked hard to where he's gotten today.
I had the pleasure of seeing Mr. Dane Cook back in July in Columbia, SC. I finally got the nerve to purchase tickets to see him, and take my boyfriend with me, because he is my absolute favorite comedian. I missed him the past few times he was actually in town and so I couldn't pass up another chance. This was the closest place he was coming to me so I drove (or my boyfriend drove) 1.5 hours away. It just so happened on the way down there, we are informed of Michael Jackson's death. Everyone was talking about it in line, and some other interesting things happened in line, but then onto the show.
I was not let down. It was a lot smaller of a venue than I imagined, and I enjoyed the closeness everyone felt there. I didn't feel like I was in Madison Square Garden (although i'm sure that'd be quite an experience, one I hope to have someday), but I enjoyed not feeling so far off from someone I admired so and had followed so much. I felt like we were just in a comedy club like his old days. I know this was the purpose of the isolated incident tour but, I still make a point to share with people that experience.
The DVD is out and you should all check it out and you won't be let down. Not only does Dane Cook do comedy, but he's working with his own production company, and I'm sure you've seen him in his movies like Mr. Brooks, Employee of the Month and My Best Friend's Girl (my favorite!)
