About Dave Attell

Born in Queens and raised on Long Island, Dave Attell got into stand-up comedy in the late eighties after graduating from New York University with a degree in Film and Television. Attell used this prestigious degree to land amazing jobs in the food service industry -- as a waiter. At night, he would hit the open mic circuit in Manhattan. After many years, Attell worked his way up through the club scene and onto the road, touring across America as a national headliner and developing a huge following with fans and the industry alike.

Most recently, Attell created and hosted "Dave's Old Porn " on Showtime, which featured such talent as Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler, Adam Carolla and Daniel Tosh.

Attell recently wrapped shooting on his new special, "Road Work," and his late-night comedy series, "Comedy Underground with Dave Attell," both for Comedy Central.

Born in Queens and raised on Long Island, Dave Attell got into stand-up comedy in the late eighties after graduating from New York University with a degree in Film and Television. Attell used this prestigious degree to land amazing jobs in the food service industry -- as a waiter. At night, he would hit the open mic circuit in Manhattan. After many years, Attell worked his way up through the club scene and onto the road, touring across America as a national headliner and developing a huge following with fans and the industry alike.

Most recently, Attell created and hosted "Dave's Old Porn " on Showtime, which featured such talent as Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler, Adam Carolla and Daniel Tosh.

Attell recently wrapped shooting on his new special, "Road Work," and his late-night comedy series, "Comedy Underground with Dave Attell," both for Comedy Central.

In 2004, he was named one of the 25 Funniest People in America by Entertainment Weekly. His caustic wit, rapid-fire delivery and choice of material, which can best be described as "very adult," have earned him his reputation as a comic's comic. But if you ask Attell, he'd say, "I'm just trying to get some laughs and sell some drinks."

In 2001, Attell used this love of booze and laughter to create and host the hit series "Insomniac with Dave Attell" for Comedy Central. A travelogue show in which Attell goes from city to city looking for late-night fun, the New York Times called the show "a doubly rare beast, a comedy without rancor and a travel show about the virtues of the American underdog." To Attell, "Insomniac" is more of a cross between "Girls Gone Wild" and "Cops."

After four seasons of "Insomniac," Attell taped several hour-long "Insomniac" specials overseas in Japan, Germany, England and Brazil. Once back in the states, he headed out on a thirty-five-city tour, which ended in Vegas. While in Vegas, he hosted a two-hour special for Comedy Central featuring Sean Rouse, Greg Giraldo and Dane Cook, some of the biggest comics in the country.

Attell has made numerous appearances on "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," "The Howard Stern Show," "Last Call with Carson Daly" and "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." He also appeared in Chris Rock's cult film "Pootie Tang." His other television credits include roles in FOX's "Arrested Development," NBC's "Ed," HBO, Comedy Central's "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" and his own half-hour stand-up special, "Comedy Central Presents Dave Attell."When he's not on the road, Attell makes regular appearances at the Comedy Cellar in New York City.
