Dane Cook, one of the hottest comics in America, makes his HBO debut in a half hour docu-comedy series that follows him and three other comics - Jay Davis, Robert "Bobby" Kelly and Gary Gulman - on their 2005 Tourgasm bus tour across America.
Each episode finds Dane and his pals at a new destination, performing their show in front of fervent audiences. The series shows intimate, often-hysterical scenes of the quartet as they deepen their ties and celebrate a once-in-a-lifetime journey none will forget.
Stand-up star Dane Cook and three fellow comics - Jay Davis, Robert "Bobby" Kelly and Gary Gulman - set out on a customised bus from Burbank, CA (destination: Boston, MA) on a 30-day, 20-gig, sold-out "Tourgasm" of America.
Outside Bozeman, Montana on Day 5, the comedy posse saddles up at a dude ranch. Next stop is New Orleans (pre-Katrina), where Jay tests out a new joke at Tulane University, to decidedly mixed results. After a stop in Springfield, MO, the tour steams into Ames, IA.
Dane's latest malady, combined with a Madison Square Garden commitment, detours him from Chicago to New York for a quick visit with his doctor. The multiple-medication therapy works wonders but will Dane make it back to Central Michigan University in time for the gig?
Dane and the guys arrive at Kent State University, Ohio for Tourgasm's first show without Gary, rumoured to be in LA with his girlfriend. Despite Gary's absence, not to mention Bobby and Jay's backstage bickering, the show is a killer.
Watch Series Anytime, Anywhere
Despite concerns about his injured leg and limited mobility, Bobby performs at Syracuse University. The tour then winds its way through New York City and Philadelphia, where a clueless van driver nearly causes the boys to miss a live TV appearance.
In Charlottesville, VA the boys compete in a game of indoor paintball. Later, Dane's dizzy spell fuels speculation that the show at the University of Virginia will be cancelled, but Gary's "perfect" set, combined with the crowd's awesome support, pull the star through.
Before a gig at the University of Massachusetts, the boys unwind with a game of miniature golf. After the evening performance - the second-to-last show - the bus heads through Boston and on to Arlington High School, where graduate Dane is hailed as a conquering hero.
With Tourgasm in the can, Dane, Gary, Bobby and Jay turn back the clock to share details on how they started out, how they met, and how they overcame (in some cases) initial animosity to become true friends.
Dane and the boys look back at their Tourgasm experience, and take on a new adventure.
