Insomniac with Dave Attell was a television show on Comedy Central hosted by comedian Dave Attell which ran from August 5, 2001 until November 11, 2004. [1]


Host Dave Attell goes through a particular city at night, usually close to midnight beginning with his performance at a local comedy club, then going to various bars, clubs, and city landmarks. He usually also stops at a restaurant that specializes in a local favorite and meets with someone that works a late-night job, typically a unique one. Along the way Attell cracks jokes with passersby and takes pictures with a disposable camera. Every episode concludes with the sun rising into the next morning and Attell saying his catchphrase "Get some sleep!"

The 30-minute program ran for four seasons on Comedy Central and continued with six one-hour specials that were filmed in Tokyo, Amsterdam, Rio de Janeiro, Dublin, London, and the Southern US. Two volumes of the show under the title The Best of Insomniac Uncensored were released on DVD.

The producers of Insomniac were Nick McKinney, [2] Dave Hamilton [2] and Mala Chapple. McKinney and Hamilton also directed all the episodes. The show's theme song and series composer was Bob Golden.
