Born in Queens and raised on Long Island, Dave Attell is known for his caustic wit, rapid-fire delivery and his choice of material, which can best be described as "very adult" and has earned him the 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." He has worked his way up through the club scene onto the road, touring across America as a national headliner and developing a huge following among fans and the industry alike.
Dave Attell is currently the creator and host of “Dave’s Old Porn” on Showtime. The show has featured such talent as Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler, Adam Carolla and Daniel Tosh. Season two will be airing this fall. He was named one of the “25 Funniest People in America” by Entertainment Weekly Magazine and has made numerous appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “The Howard Stern Show,” “Last Call with Carson Daly,” “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” NBC’s “ED,” FOX’s “Arrested Development” and more. He has also appeared in Chris Rock’s cult film “Pootie Tang” and starred in his own special on Comedy Central. When not on the road, Attell makes regular appearances at the Comedy Cellar in New York City.
