Comic Strip Marathon: Post #9 Dave Attell addresses the insomniacs

Dave Attell took the stage at 3:50 a.m. and it seemed perfectly natural. The former host of Comedy Central’s Insomniac has the audience of about 60 fans and staff howling. "I’m so glad I got to be here the first night, before you get to reek and stink, and we’d owe the whole thing to Baby Wipes and Purel," he said, although I might not be exactly sure of the wording because I’m laughing too hard and long to get it down before he moves on to the next joke. Attell is mocking us for attempting a world record for a comedy show. You know, instead of doing something important with our time. "Global warming? F#%& that! Let’s sit in a comedy club for 15 days!" he said. Has it been that long already?
