Tourgasm is an American documentary television series that aired on HBO in 2006. The series follows the 2005 30-day 20-show stand-up comedy tour featuring Dane Cook and three of his best friends in the industry: Robert Kelly, Gary Gulman, and Jay Davis.
The documentary was created and directed by Dane Cook. Gary Gulman left the tour because of unknown reasons, but returned after a few dates. At each destination Dane Cook and fellow comedians play a game or do an activity before performing. Some of the events include horseback riding, riding Segway scooters, and visiting Niagara Falls.
Tourgasm is very similar in format to the Showtime/Comedy Central film and short series The Comedians of Comedy. The Comedians of Comedy consisted of comedians Patton Oswalt, Maria Bamford, Zach Galifianakis, and Brian Posehn. Although similar in format both shows differ in audience numbers. The Comedians Of Comedy mostly play to small rock club audiences whereas Tourgasm plays to mostly college arena audiences. Tourgasm also appeared in select theatres in Canada during the month of September.
