In 1994, Dane relocated to New York City and made his debut in comedy. He started performing and stayed there for two years before moving to Los Angeles where he has remained until today.
However, in 1998 he appeared in Premium Blend. He also did a half-hour special on Comedy Central Presents which has performed terrifically and even won twice. Dane Cook’s wealth started increasing as his career continued gaining ground.
In 2003, Dane signed a contract with Comedy Central which was followed by the release of his first CD/DVD, which has his appearances on Premium Blend and Comics Come Home 5. Thereafter, he released his second DVD/CD which garnered extensive appreciation from the audience.
It was certified by double platinum. With all these efforts, Dane Cook’s income increased and enabled him to build his empire.
Hard work pays, and Dane’s efforts have not gone unrewarded. In 2005, he released Retaliation. It was one of the landmark albums whose performance was awesome! It elevated his status very high and made him the first comedian to have an album on the Billboard chart top 5.
Later in 2006, Dave got a role in Employee of the Month casting alongside Dax Shepard and Jessica Simpson. However, the movie’s performance was dismal, and it failed at the box office.
Afterward, Dave starred in Mr. Brooks in 2007 – a thriller film together with William Hurt, Kevin Costner, and Demi Moore. Fortunately, he was among the entertainers who went to Iraq in 2008 to entertain the US troops stationed there. He went together with Al Del Bene and Robert Kelly.
The most remarkable works of Dane Cook include Retaliation whose performance was exceptional. It sold 1.26 million copies in the US, and that was good enough; because Dane was not a big name in the comic industry back then.
To top it all, his fourth album dubbed Isolated Incident which aired on Comedy Central in May 2009, did spectacularly well and garnered number 4 on the Billboard 200.
