Dane Cook, of playoff baseball commercial fame, (he said Seattle was for real) will release his latest album, a live recording from Madison Square Garden, early next month.

“Dane Cook is undoubtedly one of the hottest comedians around and he is coming back to Comedy Central Records with a vengeance,” the company said in a statement. “His latest CD/DVD is Dane Cook ‘Rough Around the Edges – Live From Madison Square Garden.'”

The full-length album comes with the DVD-video portion shot in front of a live crowd of fans in New York. Cook is coming off two platinum-hit comedy albums “Retaliation” and “Harmful if Swallowed.”

Cook combines physical comedy with plays on words and George Carlin-esque observation comedy. “Dane Cook’s unique brand of stand-up comedy and accessible guy-next-door attitude have galvanized audiences of all ages,” said Comedy Central. “Named a “comedian phenom and icon” by Entertainment Weekly, Cook has maintained his reputation as one of today’s most prolific stand-up comedians while simultaneously distinguishing himself as a charismatic and versatile actor.”

Cook has made several film appearances also, including the hilarious cook in “Waiting” and a part in the failed “Employee of the Month” with Jessica Simpson. His latest role puts him in the lead of “Good Luck Chuck.”

Cook also signed a deal with HBO last year, continuing his “young Carlin” parallels.

“Rough around the Edges” hits stores November 13.
