Dave Attell was born in Queens and brought up in Long Island. After graduating from New York University with a degree in Film and Television in the late eighties, he started working into stand-up comedy. Attell utilized this prestigious degree by getting astonishing jobs in the food service industry as of a waiter. He started hitting the "open mic" group in Manhattan at night. Attell worked hard for many years for getting his way up through the club scene onto the road, then travelling across America as a national headliner and developing a vast fan following among fans and the industry alike.

The New York Times called the travelogue show, in which Attell is going from city to city on the look out for late-night fun, as "a doubly rare beast, a comedy without rancor and a travel show about the virtues of the American underdog." Accoding to Attell, the Insomniac show is more of a traverse between "Girls Gone Wild" and "Cops". Attell taped various hour-long "Insomniac" specials overseas in Japan, Germany, England and Brazil after four seasons of "Insomniac". Once he was back in the states, he started out on a thirty-five city theatre tour ending in Vegas, where he hosted a two-hour special for Comedy Central featuring some of the biggest comics in the country, Sean Rouse, Greg Geraldo and Dane Cook.

Dave Attell's first plunge into stand-up comedy is ascribed to his doubtfulness as to what he should do after college. In 1987, like many other struggling comedians, he did normal jobs during the day and performed in comedy clubs at night. His first gig was at the Governor's in Long Island but which according to Attell, "totally bombed". Though the audience do not always play along and understand his up-front delivery, his colleagues in the same field are invigorated by his ability to be original.
