Dave Attell is a COMEDY CENTRAL alum, having hosted four seasons of the hit series, "Insomniac with Dave Attell," where he traveled city-to-city in search of late-night fun. Attell was most recently seen in his HBO one-hour stand-up special, "Captain Miserable," that aired in December 2007. Named one of the "25 Funniest People in America" by Entertainment Weekly, Attell shot several hour-long "Insomniac" specials overseas and hosted a two-hour special for COMEDY CENTRAL featuring Sean Rouse, Greg Giraldo and Dane Cook in Las Vegas.
