Cook Lands Double Honours At New York Show

Funnyman DANE COOK was left speechless at his stand-up show on Thursday night (05Nov09) when he was presented with two top comedy awards.
The Good Luck Chuck star performed his new set ISolated INcident at his Dane Cook & Friends show at New York's Madison Square Garden, as part of November's (09) New York Comedy Festival, where he was supported by a handful of comedian pals, including Friday star Mike Epps.
But Cook stood stunned at the end of his encore when his manager bounded on stage to congratulate him on winning two special honours.
The actor was handed an engraved crystal prize naming him the only comedian in history to have two albums debut in the top five on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, and he was even more taken aback when he picked up the Billboard Touring Award for Top Comedy Tour of 2009. Cook was unable to attend the Thursday night ceremony in the Big Apple because of his stand-up show.
An honoured Cook said of the awards: "This is amazing, thank you very much.".
The star has scored huge success with his stand-up CDs, with 2005's Retaliation and this year's (09) Dane Cook: ISolated INcident both entering the chart at number four.
