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 »

Brilliant
9 January 2003 | by unfoundSee all my reviews

This show is basically one giant tourist show, about one unofficial tour guide and his late night misadventures in different cities. Dave Attell has got the right persona to make the show entertaining for a half hour by going everywhere and anywhere. Attell seriously finds some of the most bizarre people you thought never existed, but he does. Very much an entertaining watch if you've got nothing better to do.
