June 27, 2009 Dane Cook brought his Globo Thermo Tour to Philips Arena, this being the third tour of his career. The Globo Thermo Tour accompanied the release of his latest stand up "isolated Incident" which aired on Comedy Central May 17, 2009. Comedy Central and Dane Cook go way back...all the way to the start of his stand up career when he got his big break with an appearance on Premium Blend. Following the success of this appearance Cook was asked to do a special with the network for Comedy Central Presents. As his success with Comedy Central grew, his career began to drift into the film industry as well. You may have seen him in flicks such as Stuck on You, Employee of the Month, Good Luck Chuck, and most recently My Best Friend's Girl.
