Dave Attell's video travelogue of after-hour experiences around the globe. Attell sets out to explore the nightlife in Amsterdam, Las Vegas and Miami. Includes never-before-seen uncensored footage of scenes too racy for even Comedy Central to show.
Fans of comedian Dave Attell's charmingly seedy TV series Insomniac
will be pleased by this two-disc set, which features twice the episodes included in the previous set as well as some amusing extras. This time around, the ever-garrulous Attell visits nine U.S. cities for lowbrow fun after dark, as well as Amsterdam to commit each of the Seven Deadly Sins in a single evening. In addition to the usual bar-hopping, he also attends Miami's debauched FantasyFest, cruises with strippers in Las Vegas and deals with perpetual daylight in Alaska, all of which feature the nudity and strong language missing from the broadcast versions. However, the show's highlights remain Attell's repartee with people on the street, where his quick and salty wit takes center stage. Comedy Central's DVD set includes audio commentary by Attell and his producers on several episodes, a handful of inconsequential deleted scenes, and clips from some of the network's other programs, including Crank Yankers
