  Blue Glow: Insomniac with Dave Attell: Sloshed in Translation (Tokyo)
Attell has always been a better "on the spot" comedian than stand-up, at least if the clips aired on his show are a truthful indication.
Attell engages him in a match of "neck pong" -- ping pong paddles attached to the forehead -- but only editing can make it seem as if the ball actually moves back and forth between the two contestants.
Dave still seems to be a willing participant in the show, though the decreasing frequency with which new shows appear makes me wonder just how long Comedy Central will let him keep what must be one of the best jobs in television.

 Dave Attell's Insomniac Tour Presents: Sean Rouse, Greg Giraldo and Dane Cook | PopMatters Television Review
The Insomniac special takes its name from Attell's Comedy Central show, which aired from 2001 to 2004, ending at his insistence, after his popularity had compromised the premise, that he roamed the city streets all night, blending in with large and often bizarre crowds.
But this is a standard comedy concert, intercut with brief scenes of Attell and company eating at casino cafeterias or shooting craps, without the show's man-on-the-street interviews, not to mention the jokes at drunks' expense and stories of people who work the night shift.
Attell and Giraldo are recognizable to regular Comedy Central viewers, but they can't compare to the fact that Cook has more than one million friends on MySpace.

 DVD Verdict Review - The Best Of Insomniac With Dave Attell: Volume 1
Attell is gracious enough to bring the night to you—roaming the streets in search of people who'll talk to him, Attell is a friendly, sarcastic spud who has a knack for bringing out the wackiest in any local drunkard.
Attell himself is perfectly fitted for this series—while he's not some good looking beefcake who can easily score with women, his unfailingly funny personality draws people to him.
The great thing about this show is that there isn't some complicated set-up; it's just Dave running from place to place, drinking beers and messing around with folks who are just like you and I…err, only they have their private parts pierced, they love SandM, or they like to flash their breasts.
