Fans of Dane Cook don’t have to wait for the funnyman’s latest Comedy Central special and album “ISolated INcident” to land in May. The comedian will head out this spring for a 34-city North American tour circuit before taking his act on the international road.

The Global Thermo Comedy Tour launches with an April 25-26 stand at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT, and closes out June 27 at Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA. Performances are also penciled in for May 8 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, ON; May 22-24 at the Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas, NV; May 30 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA; and June 14 at the United Center in Chicago, IL, among other dates.

Presales for the North American tour began March 9, with public onsales following on March 13. Ticket prices start at $30, $50, $75 and $100, with VIP packages also available for each city on the tour.

Over the next year, Cook is expected to complete approximately 100 shows around the world. After touring the U.S. and Canada, the performer will continue on to Africa, Brazil, Australia, the UK and Germany.

“Taking this new tour around the world is a desire I’ve wanted to fulfill for sometime now, based on the tremendous response I received during the select few dates I have done internationally,” Cook explained in a statement on his Web site. “To travel the globe and see beautiful places, while entertaining fans from every corner of the earth is massive.”

Since his various appearances on Comedy Central and the 2003 release of his Platinum-selling album “Harmful If Swallowed,” Cook has become one of the nation’s most successful new comedians. His next television special, “ISolated INcident,” is scheduled to air on May 17, followed by a CD/DVD release on May 19.
