DANE COOK’S “VICIOUS CIRCLE” GETS DANEgerous
ON THE BIG SCREEN WITH 40 MINUTES OF NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN FOOTAGE
One Night Premiere Event on November 27th in 200 Movie Theatres Nationwide to Celebrate the Launch of the DVD
Presented by National CineMedia, HBO, SUperFInger Entertainment and New Wave Entertainment in association with McGhee-Proffer Media
DENVER, CO (November 20, 2006) – Comedy star Dane Cook is back on the big screen and more DANEgerous than ever in “DANE COOK: VICIOUS CIRCLE,” featuring in an extended concert version of his hit comedy special with 40 minutes of never-before-seen footage to celebrate the release of the new collector's edition 2-disc DVD set.
If fans think they saw the “VICIOUS CIRCLE” show on HBO, they haven’t seen anything yet! Performing at the TD Banknorth Garden in Boston "in the round" in front of 18,000 fervent fans, Cook delivers a hilarious, high-energy routine, touching on such universal issues as the therapeutic value of a good lie, the sincerity behind a post-sneeze “God bless you,” cheating and its value in relationships and the shock and awe of seeing your father's genitals for the first time.
“DANE COOK: VICIOUS CIRCLE” will be presented by National CineMedia, HBO, SUperFInger Entertainment and New Wave Entertainment in association with McGhee-Proffer Media in High-Definition and cinema surround sound on Monday, November 27th at 8:00 p.m. local time in 200 select Regal, United Artists, Edwards, AMC and Georgia Theatre Company movie theatres located across the US. Tickets are available now at www.BigScreenBoxOffice.com or at presenting theatre box offices for $10.00 in advance and $12.50 on the day of the event. (For a complete list of theatres, please visit the web site. Theatres are subject to change.)
"This one-night event is a chance for my fans that haven't seen me live, to experience my show alongside other fans," said Dane. "Even people who have seen the Vicious Circle special on HBO are going to be psyched with how much new material they will see that hasn't been seen anywhere else."
The “DANE COOK: VICIOUS CIRCLE” collector's edition 2-disc DVD set, which includes the original 90-minute broadcast version of the concert, and 2-hour DANEgerous extended concert and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, will be released on the day after the event.
