"If you're already a fan of Dave Attell, I don't have to tell you how funny he is. He's a master technician of stand-up comedy and this is a must buy for any Dave Attell fan.
After seeing his half-hour special on Comedy Central, I was hooked. However, there weren't many live performances caught on tape. The performances that were available were so censored and rushed a lot of the jokes lost their impact.
Then came his CD release, "Skanks for the Memories..." which is probably the best Dave Attell set, period.
He also has a DVD available on his website called "Hey, You're Mouth's Not Pregnant!" which is a live club performance in the South. It's a good club performance with mostly new material and some cool DVD extras. The production is obviously self-produced, but it's still a solid and funny set.
I've seen Dave three times in the past two years. This latest release, "Captain Miserable," is comprised of about 85% new material. It's just amazing to watch this man work. He bounces from topic to topic; from drugs to anal sex to pedophilia. The jokes are constructed so perfectly and his delivery is unequalled.
There's a reason why other stand-up comics will end their sets early just to catch Dave do a midnight set at Caroline's. In short, he's the comedian's comedian. He was born to do stand-up comedy and this special really highlights exactly how honed his craft has become."
