- Fun Faith Fact!:
Gets his on-stage inspiration from his mom, who he describes as "cartoon-ish".
Dane Cook grew up as one of 7 kids in a big Irish Catholic family in Massachusetts. He described himself as quiet and shy in school, until just before graduation when he began acting and performing stand-up comedy. He studied graphic design in college, and now designs all of his album covers and merchandise.
Aside from his own stand-up comedy, Cook also has a number of screen credits, the biggest of which perhaps is his role as the voice of Dusty Crophopper in Disney's Planes, and its sequel, Planes Fire and Rescue. It's widely known that Cooke does not drink or do drugs, and its often this "clean" image that overshadows his use of vulgar or dark comedy in his routines.
