Did You Know?


Due to budgetary constraints, composer/music producer Bob Golden had Dave Attell speak/sing the song's lyric for the demo recording. The network liked it so much that the demo became the final broadcast theme song with no revisions - Attell's original vocal performance remains. See more »

Dear Dave Attell, I miss you man please come back !
9 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ever since I watched this show I felt a kinship to Dave right from the get go. His booze and tobacco filled irreverent night time behavior is right up and down my alley. What a shame only 4 seasons were ever made. I personally feel ripped off by Comedy Central. This show was really good then Comedy Central pulls the freaking plug and Insomniac is not seen again except in Holiday Seasonal Marathons.

I wish and want Dave Attell to buy out the rights to this show and then start putting out straight to DVD and Blu Ray Box Set Seasons. With Straight To Video Episodes Dave Attell can step over the boundaries set by The FCC plus Comedy Central's Standards and Practices and really go for broke. This show is in my opinion better than what is being shown on Comedy Central save for South Park.
