Law & Order regular Bob Kelly, who’s also featured on Comedy Central, was Dane’s opening act. The tour will hit Britain, Australia and South Africa after wrapping its American dates. Here's a video of Dane in performance mode:

You’ll hear in Dane’s own words how he dealt with the loss of his parents from cancer in the span of a year and how his half-brother Daryl has been charged with siphoning off millions of Dane’s money. The 37-year-old comic admits to his audiences that those dark moments and a couple of box office flops came as a surprise, and here in Las Vegas, he didn’t hold back on the tales.
