Posted by: Cody Nelson (08/22/13)
Deepening his after-hours relationship with the network (which begun with his great series Insomniac), Comedy Central has just announced that comedian Dave Attell will be both hosting the network's first late-night uncensored stand-up show as well as premiering a new one-hour special of his own. Both projects will premiere sometime in 2014, and the press release can be found in the replies.

Press ReleaseNEW YORK, August 22, 2013 – Dave Attell and COMEDY CENTRAL will be keeping fans up late into the night once again as the #1 brand in comedy is back in business with the iconic comic, ordering its first-ever uncensored, weekly late-night stand-up series and a one-hour original stand-up special, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Content Development and Original Programming, COMEDY CENTRAL. The eight episode series and the one-hour stand-up special are executive produced by Attell and 3 Arts and set to premiere in 2014.

"When I was first approached for this, I thought someone said 'Dave Chappelle,' said Alterman. “I immediately said yes. I love Dave Attell, too, so it's fine."

The untitled late night stand-up series will be hosted by Attell and consist of eight half-hour episodes featuring him and his fellow comedians as never seen before: uncensored and unfiltered. The series will celebrate comics in their truest and most authentic form and will feature sets from up-and-coming talent as well as familiar faces in the comedy world as well as unscripted, interstitial moments throughout each episode.
In addition to the series, COMEDY CENTRAL has also ordered a one-hour stand-up special from Attell which will premiere next year.

Great news! Attell is easily one of my Top 5 favorite stand-ups of all-time. Been quite a while since he's recorded any new material...

I'm a big fan of shows with that format. Particularly for "newer" comics. Serves as a bit of a sampler.

They still censor their initial airings of stand up specials, and make you wait until the 1 or 2am airing for the uncensored one though, don't they? I've always found it weird that a network dedicated to comedy was censored at all. Basic cable sponsors and such, though.

I must of seen every episode of Insomniac like 5 times each. I loved that show to death. His stand-ups were hilarious as well. Great to see him back.
