Dave Attell’s New Stand-up Special “Road Work” Available April 15thth


Stand-Up Month rages on when Dave Attell returns to Comedy Central in a big way. Saturday, April 12 will see the uncensored premiere of Attell’s newest one-hour stand-up special, Dave Attell: Road Work at Midnight ET/PT, followed by the all-new uncensored stand-up series “Comedy Underground with Dave Attell” at 1:00 a.m. ET/PT.

“Dave Attell: Road Work” features multiple performances from the veteran comic’s last tour, shot in the style of a concert film.  Following him to Philadelphia, New Orleans, Minneapolis, New Brunswick, NJ, and Chicopee, MA, the special showcases Attell’s clever R-rated material. “Road Work” was shot in a guerrilla style with cameramen in the audience, and even features footage shot by the audience members themselves, resulting in what Attell calls “a filthy, dirty mess of a show.”

In “Comedy Underground with Dave Attell,” the network’s first-ever uncensored late-night stand-up series, Attell is joined by old friends as well as some new faces in their rawest, unfiltered state in New York City’s historic Village Underground. The premiere episode features Joe DeRosa, Jermaine Fowler and Jay Oakerson, with special guest Jeff Ross. Additional guests in the eight-episode series include Judah Friedlander, Ralphie May, Nikki Glaser, Ari Shaffir, Lil Rel Howery, and Ali Wong, plus special guest appearances from Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Amy Schumer, Artie Lange, Jim Norton, Ron Jeremy and “Teen Mom’s” Farrah Abraham.

New episodes of “Comedy Underground with Dave Attell” air uncensored on Saturdays at 1:00 a.m. ET/PT, and will be available two days after air in SD and HD on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Xbox Video, Sony Entertainment Network, Vudu and Verizon Flexview.

The “Dave Attell: Road Work” will be available immediately after premiere on CC: Stand-Up Direct, and April 15 on iTunes, Xbox Video, Sony Entertainment Network, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, and Target.

Leading up to the on-air premieres, Comedy Central Stand-Up and cc.com/Attell will feature preview clips from the special and series.  Fans can follow Attell on Twitter at @attell, and tweet using the hashtags #AttellUnderground and #RoadWork to join the social chatter around the special and series.
