Dave Attell: Captain Miserable
Starring: Dave Attell
Directed By: Beth McCarthy
Genre: Special

The New York Times calls him "the homely schlemiel with a deadpan zest for booze, porn and self-abuse." Now, New York-bred comic Dave Attell takes the stage for an adults-only, one-hour stand-up show in which he dissects his most recent phobias, failures and fantasies. Recorded live at the Lincoln Theatre in Washington, D.C., this special marks Attell's first HBO appearance in more than 10 years. Among the topics he covers: the problems with drinking too much Jagermeister; visiting the Middle East; why the death of "the Crocodile Hunter" was a murder; whether it's ok to start telling tsunami jokes; global warming, dinosaurs and pot smoking (there's a connection); and "fat dreams" about new soups.
