Arguably one of the biggest comedians on the planet, Cook put together a collection of his best and most popular material, spanning his five full-length albums which have collectively sold over 4 million copies in the US and Canada alone. In addition to favorites like “No So Kool-Aid,” “B&E” and “The Atheist,” the album features ten minutes of previously unreleased material, all re-mastered and newly cut together – a must have for longtime fans and those who want an introduction to Cook at his best. The double-digipak contains two full-length CDs of two and a half hours of Cook’s best jokes.

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, he created, directed and starred in the network’s nine-part comedy documentary series, Tourgasm and wrote, executive-produced and starred in Vicious Circle.
Cook 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 Stand-up Showdown. His arrival on the cultural stage was confirmed when Time Magazine listed him as one of the world’s 100 Most Influential People. In the past few years, Cook has hosted Saturday Night Live twice (including the season premiere) helping the program earn the highest non-sports ratings of any network that year. Cook has entertained audiences in various films including Good Luck Chuck with Jessica Alba, Mr. Brooks with Kevin Costner, Demi Moore and William Hurt, My Best Friends Girl opposite Kate Hudson and Alec Baldwin, Dan in Real Life with Steve Carrell, Waiting with Ryan Reynolds and Anna Farris, London with Jessica Biel and Mystery Men with Ben Stiller.
Cook catapulted to media headlines when his comedy CD/DVD, Retaliation, bucked industry trends by debuting at #4 on the Billboard 200. The album, which has hit double platinum, marked him as the highest-charting comedian in 27 years, earning him a place along with best-selling comedy vets Bill Cosby, George Carlin and Steve Martin. Additionally, Harmful If Swallowed and Rough Around the Edges CDs have appeared on eight different Billboard charts. Last year, his last album, ISolated INcident, was the highest-rated special on Comedy Central and became his second album to debut at number #4 on the Billboard charts, making him the only comedian in history to achieve that feat.
In November of last year, Cook also broke ground in the music industry with the release of his first rock single, “I’ll Never Be You,” and “Simon Said,” which he performed on this year’s finale of “American Idol.”
