Dave Attell was named one of the “25 Funniest People in America” by Entertainment Weekly. His caustic wit, rapid-fire delivery, and his choice of material that can best be described as “very adult” 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.”

Over the years, he has built up a cult following through a relentless performance schedule and as the host of “Insomniac with Dave Attell,” which ran for four seasons on Comedy Central in the early 2000s.

He can next be seen in the Hulu series “Life & Beth” alongside Amy Schumer, Michael Rapaport, and Michael Cera. He can also be seen on “Bumping Mics” with Jeff Ross, currently streaming on Netflix, and HBO’s “Crashing” with Pete Holmes. His stand-up series “Comedy Underground with Dave Attell” and his one-hour special “Road Work” were featured on Comedy Central, and “Road Work” is now streaming on Netflix.

His film credits include Chris Rock’s cult film “Pootie Tang,” Judd Apatow’s “Funny People,” “Scary Movie 4,” “Los Enchiladas,” and the Amy Schumer films “Trainwreck” and “I Feel Pretty.” His television credits include “The Simpsons,” “Difficult People,” “Bob’s Burgers,” “Arrested Development,” “The Jim Gaffigan Show,” “The Jim Norton Show,” “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Louie,” “Ed,” “Everybody Loves Raymond,” “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,” and his own half-hour stand-up special “Comedy Central Presents Dave Attell.”

When he is not on the road, Attell makes regular appearances at the Comedy Cellar in New York City.
