Dane Cook  Growing up against my will.

No press, no commercials, no hype.. just showing up and filling every size venue.. anywhere I play.
Thx to the Parx & Mohegan Sun Arena for making it loud with laughter.
My goal headed to 30 years of stand up was to get to The Rolling Stones mentality. We. Play. Anywhere. There. Is. Passion.
I don’t care if I’m playing a barn or colosseum I give it my all. No fluff, no half baked ideas.
I’m not saying where I will be next. You can ask around. I just show up and give you my best. Period.
I’m at my best.. only getting better and if you don’t show up that’s on you. If you do.. that’s on me. #spotlight #OGrockandrollcomedian #funnyaf

Sound check complete. #Philly

I’ve played every kind of venue massive and intimate. I always loved how The Rolling Stones would play where ever there was a crowd of fans regardless of the capacity.
This was a couple nights ago. 6000 comedy fans giving it up. I hope you get out to a show at some point. I’m better than ever and have so much more to express. 28 years this month doing something I did for free for so many years. Thx for the memories and the chance to make more!

There is nothing more gratifying than setting & reaching a goal. Dropping some weight while doing tour dates, prepping a film & some new surprises in their way.
When your moment arrives you need to be happy, healthy and ready for the rewards you will reap.

Thank you everyone that attended the two sold out shows in Niagara Falls & sold out show in NY! I can’t tell you how fucking cool it is to be out there entertaining everyone. #Danechella #danetrainisnowthedaneplane

11 years ago today my pops George Francis Cook made his transition to the next life.
I have so many memories with my dad that I cherish. He wasn’t without his faults but I think his missteps only helped to inform me how I wanted to live my life. Thx for that dad.
See you down the line pops.

Reading all of the wonderful tributes to Mitzi Shore who turned @TheComedyStore into a launch pad to stardom (or a gateway right back home if you were not passed). So many of the comedians I wanted to emulate made their start in that unique edifice. If those walls could talk they probably wouldn't.
There is a special energy inside @thecomedystore. It's magical & yet it's also stark. The Comedy Store has an essence all it's own and none of that would exist except for Mitzi Shore. I truly believe the "Store" was Mitzi. I have read everything and watched so much over the years celebrating the club, it's amazing family & of course the pioneer who turned a room with a mic in the middle into a legendary location.
In this moment of sadness there are so many smiles & laughs remembered. Rest in laughter Mitzi Shore.

Clearly this isn’t working out for us.

Hangin’ with my buddy @alwayschopper

Putting in the work since 1990. *everything before that was pre production prep & dress rehearsal.

Big thank you to everyone that came to the shows in Indiana & Michigan!
It’s amazing to be one of the few comedians selling out shows months in advance.
Rumor is I’m doing more in other locations. Hmm.. maybe.. ask the Internet and let me know! #comedy #mylife #haventseenanairportsince2005 #shows #redsox

I love this #Repost my sister @_courtneycook_ posted!
“Momma, you were always there for me when I needed you. I truly miss you more and more each day. Happy Birthday.❤️” Mom thank you for your energy, drive, wisdom & humor. You stay so close to our hearts because of your amazing spirit. We could not have had a better mom! You had so much more to accomplish and enjoy so Court and I continue to work hard and play often so we can celebrate you.
I love my mom.
