Fans and critics alike love comedian, Dave Attell . It's too bad Dave Attell doesn't love Dave Attell.

A New York native with a knack for self-deprecation, Attell has earned critical acclaim and an allegiance of loyal fans. Many of those fans got their first look at Attell from 2001-04, when Dave stumbled his away across the globe with a bottle of beer in one hand, a disposable camera in the other on Comedy Central's Insomniac . A former Daily Show correspondent who's resume also includes a comedy CD, Skanks for the Memories and acting roles in Pootie Tang and Los Enchiladas! (an independent movie that was written, directed by and starred the late great Mitch Hedberg ), Attell and his deadpan delivery thrived as everyone's favorite drunk tour guide on Insomniac. Although Insomniac might have never made it to LA, Dave finds himself here tonight at the Improv Hollywood .

Don't miss out on your chance to see Attell (one of Comedy Central's 100 Greatest Stand Up Comics Ever ) make fun of women, the audience and of course himself.
