Hilarious comedian performs in the Arena on Saturday, November 6th
Dane Cook, one of today’s most prolific stand-up comedians, will return to Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, November 6th at 8:00pm. 
Tickets are $100.00, $75.00 and $50.00 and go on sale Friday, August 20th at 10:00am through Ticketmaster.  Ticketmaster customers may log on to ticketmaster.com; call Ticketmaster’s national toll free Charge By Phone number 1.800.745.3000; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet.  Tickets may also be purchased at the Mohegan Sun Box Office starting Saturday, August 21st, subject to availability.
Cook’s numerous film and television projects include starring roles in Touchstone’s Dan in Real Life (with Steve Carell), Lionsgate’s romantic comedy, Good Luck Chuck (with Jessica Alba), MGM’s thriller, Mr. Brooks (with Kevin Costner, Demi Moore and William Hurt), and most recently My Best Friend’s Girl (with Kate Hudson and Alec Baldwin), through his production company, SUperFInger Entertainment.
Combining energetic physical comedy, clever wordplay and trenchant observations about human behavior, Cook’s unique brand of stand-up and accessible guy-next-door attitude have galvanized audiences of all ages. His debut CD/DVD release, Harmful If Swallowed, appeared on eight different Billboard charts and is certified platinum. A few years later, he catapulted to media headlines when his sophomore comedy CDx2/DVD, Retaliation, debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200, hitting double platinum, making him the highest charting comedian in twenty-nine years, and earning him a place alongside best-selling comedy vets Bill Cosby, George Carlin and Steve Martin.
In 2008, Cook again proved his star power in front of a combined live crowd of 70,000 people with two highly rated specials, Vicious Circle (for HBO) and Rough Around the Edges (for Comedy Central).  Last year, Cook teamed up again with Comedy Central with his new special, ISolated Incident –his most ambitious album and special to date, taped in an intimate comedy club setting rather than a arena. The album found Cook covering new kinds of material, from the personal to the political and it debuted commercial-free on Comedy Central in May 2009 and was also shot in one single, edit-free take from beginning to end.
Mohegan Sun Arena was ranked the 4th best venue in 2009 by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.” For more information on concerts and other great events at Mohegan Sun, visit mohegansun.com.  For information on this week’s schedule, call the Entertainment and Special Events hotline at 1.888.226.7711, ext. 27163.
