Album Review

Dave Attell is best-known for his Comedy Central series Insomniac, where he tours and documents the nightlife of cities all over the United States and Canada, but he makes his living as a journeyman standup comedian. His CD Skanks for the Memories fully represents the years Attell has dedicated to honing his act. The CD is full of familiar bits from his television appearances and even more material that could not be experienced on broadcast or basic cable television. His wit is as sophisticated as it is sophomoric. There are enough jokes about private parts, sexual orientation, and drinking to satisfy any frat boy, but there are also insightful barbs at religion, politics, and relationships for the more cerebral. The golden age of comedy recordings is long gone and most comedians are not subtle enough to satisfy the format, but Attell is able to bridge the energy needed to entertain a visual audience and the wit needed for the aural. Overall this CD is hilarious and achieves the goal of any comedy recording, which is to induce the owner to reach for it again and again.

Customer Reviews

Over & Over Again!!

There is not many comedy albums that can crack you up every single time you listen to it... This is one of them. I'm a big fan of Insomniac & didnt think he was as funny in the openings of the show. But in the big picture, when your not just getting snippits... he is hilarious!! Dont laugh too hard because you might miss his next joke, his style of delivery is perfect to get you going one way & take you another. I recommend this one & hopes that he comes out with another!!

Still a classic

I don't know why there are only 6 reviews on this album...recommend highly. Very Very Very funny.

The jokes come faster than most can even catch them

Dave Attell is one of the greatest preforming comedians in the way he delivers the jokes. The punchline isn't at the end of the joke, it hits you in the beginning, swings a few times throughout the whole bit and that lands solid at the end. Lines such as "Have you ever slept in a bunkbed? It's great training for jail, isn't it?" and more are hysterical. This CD is worth twice the price it's listed for, get it today! "My weiner and hand are a' fightin, quick get some tissues, a hot towel and a burrito!"

Years Active: '00s

East Coast native and award-winning comedian Dave Attell practices a raunchy, old-school brand of standup reminiscent of Richard Pryor and Sam Kinison.
