Dave Attell is a true creature of the night. First, because of his much-missed show Insomniac, in which he roamed the deserted streets of heartland America looking for drunks or shift workers who were down to get weird. And also, perhaps, because of his recent project Dave’s Old Porn, in which he seriously screens organic ‘60s and ‘70s pornos for his comedian pals and then brings in the actual porn performers for a critical review. It’s all “hairy, dirty, filthy porn,” as he told Conan last year, and when Hurricane Sandy knocked out his power, he edited episodes together by candlelight. If it goes on after-hours and it gets a little X-rated, he’s your man. Catch him at a rare just-before-sundown set closing out his Irvine Improv run.
