Dane Cook's Tourgasm
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Dane Cook, the hottest comic in America today, makes his HBO debut in a nine-part half-hour docu-reality series following him and three other comics Gary Gulman, Jay Davis and Robert Bobby Kelly on their 2005 sold-out Tourgasm bus tour across America. Each episode finds Dane and his pals at a new destination, as they travel to 20 college campuses from Seattle to Boston and perform their show in front of fervent audiences. In addition to performance clips, the series focuses on intimate, often-hysterical scenes of the quartet as they overcome cramped quarters, frequent misunderstandings, and a plethora of porno stories and fart jokes to deepen their ties and celebrate a once-in-a-lifetime journey none will forget.]]>

Now that you know I don't have an agenda against Dane Cook, you can take this review in the spirit it was intended or not. "Tourgasm" is a reality show broadcast in 9 episodes. It takes a look at Dane with three other comics as they traveled the country to perform for 20 shows in 30 days. On paper, this seems like a great idea--some great comedy, some backstage drama, some insight into the comedy process, a more personal look at Dane Cook. There was a potential for many things.
Inexplicably, however, nothing was delivered. The show has no narrative drive, no hook and nothing to invest yourself in. You want to hear great comedy? Not here. You get a couple of jokes from each show--but anyone familiar with Dane Cook's CDs and Gary Gulman's stint on "Last Comic Standing" will be familiar with the material. But trust me, this series is NOT about the comedy performances. Backstage drama, then? Absolutely not. We're treated to a couple of pranks, and an argument or two (mostly Robert Kelly picking on newbie Jay Davis). Not that interesting. Everyone keeps telling the camera how difficult this trip is, how revolutionary--and yet our view is so sanitized--if there was drama, I never saw it. At one point Gary Gulman actually leaves the tour for a while, I guess he's sick of it. But we see nothing leading up to it and the actual event takes place off camera.Read more ›
I haven't seen the DVD yet (it's still on pre-order). Hopefully the bonus footage captures some of what the show itself missed. If not, count this as a 1 star review.
