But this DVD gives us nothing new. No new footage at all, just the original shows uncensored. We get to hear the bleeped cussing and we get to see a little nudity. But, like another reviewer said, the show really isn't about that, and honestly, the nudity we do get to see is not really worth seeing (Okay, the chick in Montreal is nice, but otherwise it's nothing exciting).
I was really hoping for some behind the scenes stuff. Maybe bloopers, out takes, and deleted scenes, or stuff so shocking or sexy it had to be cut out all together on the TV edition. I was hoping to see Brian the cameraman. All you get on this DVD is the exact same show you saw on TV without the Bleeps and the Blurs.
And who picked these cities as the best of season one anyway? The New York episode on this DVD is from season 2, and it is the worst of the three times Dave has done New York. The two New York episodes that really were in Season one were both great, and where is Memphis. That was the best epsiode from season one, hands down!
Anyway, love the show, love Dave Attell, totally dissapointed in the DVD.
Dave Attell is the host and takes you on a journey full of booze, women, interesting people and wild parties. As soon as his comedy act is over, that's when he takes you for a ride you won't forget. And what's great is that this is an uncensored look, meaning that the language and other shenanigans that could never air on Comedy Central without being bleeped or blurred is here. Get ready to enjoy the nightlife as you cruise around with Dave in the cities of Chicago, Houston, New Orleans, New York and Montreal.
The show is very original and unique. It doesn't fail to entertain for a second. It's 107 minutes long, giving you tons of material to watch. Although it would've been nice to have the complete season of the show, this is still a nice thing to have. And you know there will be a Volume 2 coming out in the near future.
"The Best of Insomniac with Dave Attell: Volume 1" is more than enjoyable. It's funny, edgy, entertaining and memorable. If you've seen the show on Comedy Central or love Dave Attell, then check out this DVD as soon as you can. I can hardly wait for a Volume 2 and I would love it if a complete season would be released on DVD. Still, this DVD is not too shabby.
