EP 203 - Dane Cook
Welcome to the Pretty Intense Podcast. Today on the show is Dane Cook. Dane is a comedian who is having a recreation in his career. Dane has a new show called "Above It All." He is also touring, and filming a documentary right now. This conversation did not go the way you would think it would go. It went in super fun and interesting ways. Yes it was funny, and yes he is interesting, but he is also so deep. He is actually a lot like me. He is on a mission for truth. We are both introverts. We also both like to go deep into ourselves, to figure life out, and make the most of it, and be happy. This episode is packed with life lessons. Dane tells us all about his childhood, and how that has made him the person that he is. We talk about what makes good comedy, the cancel culture, and failure. I set an intention this morning to have today bring me delight and surprise, and Dane Cook was just that. I hope you enjoy it, nearly as much as I did.
