Storyline

In this late-night traveling show, "Tour guide" Dave Attell visits late night spots (including bars, strip clubs, and clubs) and talks to whoever he finds. There's no home base for the show, as Dave is shown in different locations throughout North America each week. The average "guest" to the show could be naked, cross dressing, or just completely drunk. Written by kicking222

Trivia

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 »

Drinking????
8 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

Yeah there is some drinking in this show. OK it's all about drinking and a little sightseeing too, but my gawd how can one human drink yet still have the energy to go to all these places. Maybe I'm a bit of a wimp. This was a really funny show, Dave is funny and the concept of the show is great. No matter where you are in North America (and around the world) people all like to get drunk and make asses of themselves on camera. I think there should have been a few other cities that Dave could have gone to (Portland Maine for example, or just have a two hour special going thru New England, believe me there is a lot of drinking to be done up here) Maybe he can bring back the show in a few years or so, would be cool!!
