DAVE ATTELL:  CAPTAIN MISERABLE FEATURES THE OUTSPOKEN COMIC IN AN UNCENSORED STAND-UP COMEDY SPECIAL DEBUTING DEC. 8, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

LISTEN TO OUR DAVE ATTELL INTERVIEW

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."  After starting his career at open-mic nights in Manhattan, Attell made his HBO debut on "The 1995 Young Comedians Show Hosted by Gary Shandling" and starred in his own "HBO Comedy Half-Hour" a year later.

Attell's other credits include numerous appearances on "The Late Show with David Letterman," "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," as well as "Arrested Development," "Ed," "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn," the cable special "Comedy Central Presents Dave Attell" and the cult-favorite feature film "Pootie Tang."
