Popular comedian Dane Cook recently announced a large 2019 tour entitled Tell It Like It Is, and he is ready to get in his comfort zone again in front of live audiences throughout the nation. It will be the first live tour by one of the true comic stars of the early 21st century since 2013, when he embarked on the Under Oath Tour. This one will begin on the East Coast in February and wrap up on the West Coast in November after crisscrossing the nation for a few dozen live performances.
Playing ‘In the Round’
Cook has had a very interesting run that initially began in the mid-90s, when young comedians made their money and built their audiences on college campuses as opposed to the Internet. He performed to raucous crowds throughout North America and well beyond during years in which he was regarded as one of the wittiest and most daring comics in the business. He’s very physical on-stage, almost to the point of being in the realm of the great Jim Carrey, sometimes moving about his space like he’s got a pot of coffee in him. Fans love him.
Cook became known for playing “in the round,” which means performing on a stage that is typically circular-shaped and in the middle of a gigantic Stadium or auditorium. This takes an incredible level of confidence and a whole lot of skill, as there is no backstage and no angle with which the audience cannot see you. It helps if you’re in decent shape and have well-tailored clothes. Cook has cut a successful path as a legitimate dramatic actor in the last several years, and he is anxious to re-prove that he is still at the top of the wildly competitive comedic game.
Tell It Like It Is Tour
It is interesting to note that comedy has changed noticeably since last time Cook was at the top of the entertainment genre, as audiences are now typically looking to experience laughter in a less-extreme format that involves a mindfulness for not going overboard. This can be a very tricky line for modern comedians to walk, not that Cook is going to have any problems. His fans are naturally excited and anxious to see what he is ready to unleash come next year. Everyone interested in securing Dane Cook 2019 Tour Tickets now can easily do so to a run that will begin in Huntington, New York at the Paramount Theater on February 21.
The month of March is highlighted by shows in Chicago, Boston and San Francisco, as well as a March 30 performance at The Metropolitan Opera House in Philadelphia. April features just five shows spread throughout the Midwest and the South, and the month of May features just two. Cook has no June performances set as of now, but a July 20 show at the Neil S Blaisdell Concert Hall in Honolulu, Hawaii is going to be a big one.
There are sizable breaks in this tour so Cook can live up to other scheduling obligations, but September has a large handful shows that will be sprinkled throughout New York, Florida and Tennessee, including a performance at the Radio City Music Hall on September 14.
Tickets and Information
October will feature a total of nine shows, culminating with performances in Uncasville, Connecticut at the Mohican Arena on the 19th, and Shows in Austin and Dallas on the 25th and 26, respectively.
