Among the stand-ups other stand-ups frequently mention as the greatest living, Dave Attell is an anomaly: not as introspective as Maria Bamford, as sociological as Chris Rock or as philosophical as Louis C.K., Attell is probably best described as a joke guy, and many of those jokes are of the ever-popular dick persuasion. It’s no coincidence that Comedy Central’s Insomniac, Attell’s best-known work, isn’t an independent-cinema-inspired dissection of the heart and mind but a show where he goofed around with people in bars. Making drunks laugh seems like a simple skill, but to see a master work his craft is always a thing of beauty.
