Comedy Superstar Dane Cook takes over Madison Square Garden, closing the Third Annual New York Comedy Festival with Vicious Circle LIVE!. With a lead role in the new film Employee of the Month, his wildly popular HBO special Vicious Circle, the #1 comedy album in the country, Dane Cook: Retaliation, and his second appearance hosting Saturday Night Live, Dane Cook has solidified himself as today's most popular comedian. His widespread popularity stems from his electric style of stand-up comedy and his use of the Internet to reach out to fans. HBO has given Cook an unprecedented deal that includes multiple series, specials and other projects. Upcoming projects include the films Good Luck Chuck with Jessica Alba, Mr. Brooks with Kevin Costner and Dan in Real Life with Steve Carell. "Dane Cook is the hottest stand-up comedian out there today, and we're absolutely thrilled that he's going to be a part of our festival," says Caroline Hirsch, founder and owner of Carolines on Broadway. "Dane is by far the most popular and successful comedian of his generation - and he's only going to get bigger. This is going to be THE comedy event of the year!"
