Known as the host of Comedy Central’s Insomniac with Dave Attell and The Gong Show, Dave Attell is also a great stand up comedian, writer and actor. A New York native, he graduated from NYU in 1987 with a degree in communications. During the day, he worked crappy jobs and did standup at night. After getting national exposure courtesy of David Letterman, his career took off. The caffeinated comic has a rapid fire delivery that suggests he has trouble turning his mind off. He performs tonight at 7 and 9:30 at Hilarities, where he has shows scheduled through Sunday.
