The audio commentary is pretty funny, gives you the background on what was going on off the camera. If you watch the show, and enjoy it, this dvd is a must.
while i loved both volume 1 and 2...i hate it when you advertise that the dvd is uncensored (it's even in the title!!) and then you go and censor it!! on the 2nd dvd it has deleted scenes "uncensored" and you censor a girl trying to show you how to easily get to her clit!! it should be called "the best of insomniac with dave attell : volume 2". saying it is uncensored is a bit misleading.
Part travelogue, part "how things work" program and part bar crawl, "Insomniac" follows the hard-drinking but ever-amiable comedian Dave Attell as he prowls various cities after dark. He hits nightclubs, factories, festivals, tourist spots - basically any place where people are doing stuff while the general populace is asleep.
"The Best of Insomniac Uncensored Volume Two" compiles some of the series' best episodes, visits to ten cities including Anchorage, Boise, Key West, Miami and Austin, Tx. In some of the shows' better bits, Attell clubs around Amsterdam with a cheesy old buddy (who has apparently become a huge TV star in the Netherlands), tours a bustling Las Vegas pawn shop and catches up with his sister, who fronts a rock band in New York.
The two-disk set presents the shows without the many bleeps and blurs that make the TV versions safe for mass consumption, and some of the episodes come with commentaries (with Attell and the show's producers) that reveal in humorous detail that the show is not nearly as easy to make as it seems.
The DVD is very entertaining and will not disappoint from a comedic standpoint, but, on principal, it should deliver what it promises and it does not.
The style is stream of consciousness - his comedy drawn from experiences in bar hopping after hours until last call, speaking with different people - he is sharp witted and is an acquired taste. But no matter how much alcohol he ingests, he is still as sharp as a tack.
I like him because he makes me laugh and that is the purpose of comedy - however, if you see him on Comedy Central, it is more subdued and it is still wild.
The reason I give him a 3 star rating is that when he runs out of comedic material, he just rambles about his observations, and that is a little slow. But when he is on a run I can't help but laughing out loud.
Just make sure you keep this hidden in your closet away from the teenagers - it is definitely adult humor and very graphic. But if I didn't like him I would not have purchased 3 of his CD, DVD's.
So if you like a sharp minded New York comedian, who will say anything that comes to mind, and will not screen any of his material for some raunchy material, then you will enjoy his "shock comedian" humor, that could make Howard Stern blush.

Great show - wish it was still going - Dave is at his best walking around from bar to barPublished 13 months ago by Gayle Miller
Several years ago I used to stay up late at night watching "Insomniac with Dave Attell." Eventually the series went off the air (or cable) and didn't get to see it again. Read morePublished on July 27, 2013 by bounzer
The Amazingly Hilarious comic Dave Attell's shortly lived Comedy Central travel show of city night lives was a unique show before it's time.Published on October 7, 2012 by Doctor Zaius
