Very Entertaining

"Dave Attell is very new to me, but after hearing his album "Sk*nks for the Memories...," I think he's a hilarious comedian who's not afraid to take his comedy to the limit. Chances are that you won't be believing some of the things that you hear. As I always love to experiment with new comedy albums, I am glad that this was one that I gave a chance. It was time not wasted, I assure you.He talks about it all on this album; drinking, drugs, women, fireworks, traveling... and a whole bunch of other stuff that I can't even begin to describe (just check out the track listing and look at the names). And he does a great job. He has a look and feel of his own, which enables him to stand out from others. He can even have a bitter and cold tone at times, which makes it all the funnier. (I kind of see a Bill Hicks influence in him, without the political material).My favorite bits are "drinking tips," "travel," "flying," "smoking," "bus station," "fun happens late" "religion," and of course, "find that smell." The whole album is entertaining and doesn't miss a beat for a second.Be warned, this guy's not for everyone. Some may find his material offensive and so on. (Again, look at the track listing). If you don't like comedians who swear and use very adult oriented material, then I suggest you steer clear from the album. If you love all that stuff (like me) then check it out!!All in all, Dave Attell is a very funny comedian who knows his stuff. I'll have to check out his show "Insomniac" now, as I am curious to see it after hearing the album. "Sk*nks for the Memories..." is an outrageously hilarious album that will entertain just about any fan of stand-up comedy. I'm very happy with the purchase."
One of the Few Comedy Albums Worth Buying

"I own thousands of CDs but only a handful of comedy ones. I find most comedy albums are either not very funny or just funny enough for me to listen to them about two or three times before getting bored. Dave Attell's album, on the other hand, is entirely different. I've listened to this non stop since I bought a year ago. I gave a copy of it to my brother recently and he, too, hasn't stopped listening to it. The album is just flat-out funny; what's more, Attell has the amazing ability to disarm audiences. He does a lot of "gay" jokes here, but, just as you, the listener, are starting to think, "what's up with all the gay stuff?" he exclaims, "Was that homophobic? ... I hear that a lot: 'Dave, you probably secretly ARE gay.' I say, 'Listen, voice in my head, I'm not.'" Sharp, hilarious guy."
