Dane Cook has performed his high-energy brand of stand-up comedy in some of the country's largest arenas including New York's Madison Square Garden, TD Garden in his hometown of Boston and the Staples Center, here in the city he currently calls home. On October 2nd the popular yet polarizing comedian will take the stage at one of Los Angeles' most historic entertainment venues -- The Greek Theater.

Cook, who has been called a "comedian phenom and icon" by Entertainment Weekly took some time to exchange emails with us. Our emails with the comedian, whose greatest hits album -- I Did My Best hits stores in November, covered topics like the upcoming show at The Greek, the rise to mainstream stardom of Aziz Ansari and Zach Galifianakis, the impact the internet has had on comedy, the backlash that came along with his success and much more.
