DANE COOK IS ABOUT TO MAKE HISTORY� AGAIN! ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 13 COMEDY CENTRAL RECORDS� RELEASES DANE COOK "ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES � LIVE FROM MADISON SQUARE GARDEN"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NEW YORK, October 22, 2007 -- Dane Cook is undoubtedly one of the hottest comedians around and he is coming back to COMEDY CENTRAL Records with a vengeance. His latest CD/DVD is Dane Cook "Rough Around the Edges � Live From Madison Square Garden." The full-length album with accompanying DVD showcases his amazing, hilarious new stand-up set recorded in front of tens of thousands of his adoring fans at the main arena of Madison Square Garden. "Rough Around the Edges" comes out on the heels of his two successful platinum-selling albums "Retaliation" and "Harmful if Swallowed." "The CD/DVD drops in stores nationwide on Tuesday, November 13 and will also be available at www.shop.comedycentral.com.

Combining energetic physical comedy, clever wordplay and trenchant observations about human behavior, Dane Cook's unique brand of stand-up comedy and accessible guy-next-door attitude have galvanized audiences of all ages. Named a "comedian phenom and icon" by Entertainment Weekly, Cook 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 2007, Cook starred in his first leading role as the likable slacker Zack in "Employee of the Month." After inking a multi-faceted production deal with HBO last year, he created, directed and starred in the network's nine-part comedy documentary series, "Tourgasm" and wrote, executive-produced and starred in "Vicious Circle." Most recently, Cook entertained audiences in the romantic comedy "Good Luck Chuck" with Jessica Alba and in the thriller, "Mr. Brooks" with Kevin Costner, Demi Moore and William Hurt.

He began his career at age 18, honing his craft on the college and comedy club circuits and became one of the first comics to develop and maintain his own Web site to reach out to audiences. Among many awards and accolades, Cook was named Rolling Stone Magazine's "Hot Comic," Stuff Magazine's "Coolest Comic of the Year" and was the winner of COMEDY CENTRAL's "Standup Showdown." Last year, his arrival on the cultural stage was confirmed when Time Magazine listed him as one of the world's 100 "Most Influential People." He has appeared multiple times on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "The Late Show with David Letterman," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and "The Tonight Show." Last year, Cook hosted the season premiere of "Saturday Night Live," helping the program earn the highest non-sports ratings of any network that year.

Some previously released recordings by COMEDY CENTRAL Records include: Grammy Award-winning, "Lewis Black: The Carnegie Hall Performance," Dane Cook's platinum-selling "Retaliation," "Steven Wright: I Still Have A Pony," "Michael Ian Black: I Am A Wonderful Man," "Mike Birbiglia: My Secret Public Journal Live" Todd Barry's "Falling Off The Bone," Mitch Hedberg's "Mitch All Together" and "Strategic Grill Locations," Dave Attell's "Skanks For The Memories" and Jim Breuer's "Smoke 'n' Breu" and many others.
