1. You know, I'm a member of the cooking club.

(What is the role of 'You know' in this sentence?)

    The comma you used correctly in #1 is because of rule #2c here. The words "You know" are just introductory; they indicate that the speaker assumes that the listener already knows the facts in the main clause of the sentence.

    Sentence 2 is stating what the speaker knows the listener knows; the only real difference is in pronunciation -- no pause after "know" as in #1.
