Cook's national comedy career has flourished since his move to Hollywood.

Cook has had several appearances on "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn," and "Comics Come Home" which is hosted annually by Denis Leary.

Cook's amazing comedy career blossomed into an acting career that has earned him roles in both TV and film. His most recent roles have been in the Warner Bros. action film "Torque" which will hit theaters next summer; "The Touch" directed by Academy Award winner Peter Pau, filmed on location in China with Michelle Yeoh, coming to theaters early next year; a lead role in the heist film, "LAX," and an appearance in the movie "Mystery Men" with Ben Stiller.
