Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
Can four comedians on a 30-day tour survive the pressures of the stage, their audiences and, most importantly, themselves? Find out in this hilarious half-hour docu-comedy series that follows Dane Cook and fellow comics Jay Davis, Robert 'Bobby' Kelly, and Gary Gulman on their 20-show "Tourgasm" tour as they share meals, jokes, and a bus while waging friendly competitions and not-so-friendly arguments. Each episode finds Dane and the group appearing at colleges from Seattle to Boston where they perform in front of fervent audiences. In addition to performance clips, the series focuses on intimate, often-hysterical scenes of the quartet as they deal with cramped quarters, frequent misunderstandings, and a plethora of porno stories and fart jokes.
|1||Closed CaptioningVideoThe First Laugh||Stand-up star Dane Cook and three fellow comics--Jay Davis, Robert 'Bobby' Kelly and Gary Gulman--set out on a customized bus from Burbank, CA (destination: Boston, MA) on a 30-day, 20-gig, sold-out 'Tourgasm' of America. Highlights include: a rib-crunching scooter fall that nearly sidelines the headliner for the premier show at Sonoma State University; the first of many heated arguments between Jay and Bobby, this time over the fact that Jay won't join in the group's porn chats; a fish-tossing diversion with cutting consequences for Gary; and a trip up the Space Needle in Seattle before hitting the stage at Washington State University on Day 3.||28:08||$1.99||View In iTunes|
|2||Closed CaptioningVideoWorking It Out||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. Later, Dane and Bobby figure out how to lose a couple of female suitors on Bourbon Street.||29:50||$1.99||View In iTunes|
|3||Closed CaptioningVideoThe United States of Insanity||Dane's latest malady (a nasty cold), 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? On Day 12, Bobby follows Dane to the doctor in Kalamazoo, and the boys play ice hockey before a show at Western Michigan U. Later, in Cincinnati, Dane pouts after losing a go-cart race to Bobby, but recovers when his girlfriend arrives for some TLC before a Day 13 gig at Xavier.||29:09||$1.99||View In iTunes|
|4||Closed CaptioningVideoThe Best of Times...||Day 15. Dane and the guys arrive at Kent State University (Ohio) for Tourgasm's first show without Gary, who is rumored to be in L.A. with his girlfriend. Despite Gary's absence, not to mention Bobby and Jay's backstage bickering, the show is a killer, with Dane getting a standing ovation on a rock-concert scale. The next day, heading towards Syracuse, NY, the boys play a game of garment-tossing at Niagara Falls, then pair off for the 'Campground Gravel Pit Bowl'--a heated touch-football game that ends with Bobby in the hospital with a badly injured knee. Will he be able to continue performing? Only time will tell.||27:18||$1.99||View In iTunes|
|5||Closed CaptioningVideoDetermined and Injured||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 Baltimore, Gary relives one of his darkest moments: last night's heckle-ridden show. The bad vibes are only slightly mitigated by a 45-minute trip to a crab restaurant, where the consensus is that the meat just wasn't worth the work. Dane shows off his internet acumen to Jay, then spearheads a Terrapin prank on the injury-prone Bobby, who's been at the dentist after shattering a tooth on a crab shell. The boys' luck turns in University Park, PA, where they play the tour's biggest gig to some 7,500 raucous Penn State fans. Afterwards, Dane admits that this was one of those highlights when he can say 'I've made it.'||28:07||$1.99||View In iTunes|
|6||Closed CaptioningVideoCompetitively Speaking||In Charlottesville, VA, the boys compete in a game of indoor paintball that ends with the ultracompetitive Dane accusing Jay of foul play. 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 overwhelming support, pull the star through. Dane's competitive juices flow again during a heated poker game, followed by an exhilarating white-water rafting trip near Richmond. The tour then heads north to familiar territory: Massachusetts, where some frenetic 'original' fans at Fitchburg College welcome home their comedic hero.||26:42||$1.99||View In iTunes|
|7||Closed CaptioningVideoBeginning of the End||Before a gig at the University of Massachusetts, the boys unwind with a game of miniature golf. Gary prevails, prompting Dane to deadpan, 'It's one of the few times in my life I wish I was Gary.' After the evening performance--the second-to-last 'Tourgasm' show--the bus heads through Boston and on to Arlington High School, where Dane, a graduate, is hailed as a conquering hero. Standing again on the auditorium stage where he first performed, Dane gets emotional and reflective, realizing his career has come full circle. The utopia of his return is dulled the next day, when he must pack up his stuff before the tour ends. The final show, at Boston University, brings out the best in the comics--as well as plenty of good vibes at completing such a memorable journey.||27:54||$1.99||View In iTunes|
|8||Closed CaptioningVideoBack In the Day||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. This edition features plenty of revealing home movies and photos, including early comedy-club performances by each comic; home documentaries starring Dane's mom; a pantomimed performance special by a young Dane shot while taking a break at a pizzeria; an eye-opening look at how the comic's sense of fashion, hair and comedy has evolved through the years; and more. The episode concludes with Dane reading a graduation letter he'd written, at the request of his high-school writing teacher, to his biggest fan and best friend: Dane Cook.||27:13||$1.99||View In iTunes|
|9||Closed CaptioningVideoCurtain Call||In the series finale, Dane and the boys take on a new adventure: Fighter Pilot for a Day school. It's terrifying--and nauseating--but reliving the tour afterward is hilarious, especially with highlights like Jay's porn-filled hotel bill! They conclude that 'Tourgasm' has left them better friends--with most of their dignity and internal organs intact.||27:15||$1.99||View In iTunes|

Real World meets Comedy Central
I like reality TV but what I don't like is that the people are usually very dull. Tourgasm has all the in-fighting, bad manners, and BO of a typical reality TV show, but it also has lots of great comedy bits. I'd say around 20% of each episode is dedicated to stage time. Very funny show.
Gary Gulman fann... random?
Dane Cook's Tourgasm is SOOO funny. when i first watched it, i thought it was gonna be more about the shows, not what goes on backstage. but i was happy dissapointed that it wasnt about on stage laughs. most season i buy, i watch once or twice and put it on my shelf, but this one i come back for. Because its not scripted, its alot different from the jokes that they preform, but it shows the real them doing what they do best with comedy. making a laugh out of anything
Get this anyway possible...
...but if you can, get this on DVD, you will want to show you're friends and be able to watch it on something bigger that you're iPod. But this about the funniest thing I have ever seen. Dane Cook and 3 friends travle cross country doing 20 shows in 30 days, and what they do during the trip is no joke, some of the funniest things I have ever seen or heard. If you like to cry from laughing, this is just for you.(that is what happened to me when they played football, and someone got hurt. Comedy gold!)
