Dave Attell's take-no-prisoners attitude has brought him a rabid cult following. Now, this hot stand-up comic returns to HBO for his first solo special on the network in more than a decade when DAVE ATTELL: CAPTAIN MISERABLE debuts SATURDAY, DEC. 8 (10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT). Taped before a packed house at the historic Lincoln Theater in Washington, D.C., DAVE ATTELL: CAPTAIN MISERABLE features his uncompromising observations on: global warming, pot smokers, female celebrities, psychedelic mushrooms and his personal porn collection, among many other topics.
Named one of the "25 Funniest People in America" by Entertainment Weekly, Attell is a "comic's comic" who's gained a devoted following through live performances and his cable series "Insomniac with Dave Attell."
