This video travelogue of after-hours experiences has comedian Dave Attell again exploring local nightlife in all its raw and gritty glory in such cities as Amsterdam, Las Vegas, and Miami. Volume two gets even more twisted as viewers get a perverse peek into Attell's mind, with audio commentary from Dave on selected episodes, as well as never-before-seen uncensored footage. "Insomniac" continues to be one of Comedy Central's top rated programs; a critical and fan favorite. "'Insomniac' is a doubly rare beast, a comedy without rancor and a travel show about the virtues of the American underdog"--The New York Times.
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. --Paul Gaita

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.
