Raunchy and Uncensored Dave Attell Live at the Borgata Events Center in Atlantic City, New Jersey on May 9th, 2014
Dave Attell was born and raised in New York City. He is a stand up comic, writer and producer known for his comedy work including Insomniac with Dave Attell, Dave Attell: Captain Miserable and Funny People. Attell is not a newcomer by any means. He made his television stand up debut in 1988 on "Stand-Up Spotlight" on VH1, hosted by Rosie O'Donnell and featuring up-and-coming comics like Jay Mohr, Margaret Cho and Lewis Black. A bigger break for Dave came in 1993 when he made his first appearance on "The Late Show with David Letterman". After seeing him perform stand up on the episode, producers approached him about writing and performing on "Saturday Night Live", which is still a no-brainer for any comic today, and Attell jumped at the the opportunity, writing for the duration of the 1993-94 season and often appearing in sketches as well.
