DANE COOK (Franz Liebkind) has maintained his reputation as one of today’s most prolific stand-up comedians, while simultaneously distinguishing himself as a charismatic and versatile actor in a variety of film and television projects. Cook recently guest starred on Louie opposite Louie C.K. He next toplines the upcoming NBC series Next Caller, which is a sharp new comedy from producer Stephen Falk (Weeds) and Emmy-winning director Marc Buckland. Cook plays Cam Dunne, a galvanizing satellite radio personality who is forced into co-hosting his own show despite objection.
Cook is well known for his appearances on Comedy Central and HBO specials, and for his successful comedy albums: Harmful If Swallowed, Retaliation, Vicious Circle, Rough Around The Edges, Live From Madison Square Garden, ISolated INcident, and Dane Cook: I Did My Best - Greatest Hits.
Combining energetic physical comedy, clever wordplay, and trenchant observations about human behavior, Cook’s unique brand of stand-up and accessible guy-next-door attitude have galvanized audiences of all ages. In 2006, Retaliation became the highest charting comedy album in 28 years and went double-platinum, earning him a place alongside best-selling comedy vets Bill Cosby, George Carlin, and Steve Martin. After inking a multi-faceted production deal with HBO in 2006, Cook created, directed, and starred in the network’s nine-part comedy documentary series, Tourgasm, and wrote, executive-produced, and starred in Vicious Circle, a feature-length stand-up event.
His film credits include starring roles in My Best Friend’s Girl opposite Kate Hudson, Dan In Real Life opposite Steve Carell, and Mr. Brooks opposite Kevin Costner, among others. Cook currently lives in Los Angeles, where he continues to develop new comedy material and film and television projects.
