    Sounded like he was fucking with him about how rich he is(first class), how he's a closet gay(film festival) and things like getting laid. Loved it

    I sure as fuck hope so - Dave Attell and Doug Stanhope are two of the most insightful thinkers since Bill Hicks croaked.

    I don't know if it was just me, but the interview simply bored the shit out of me. For a comedian, Dave Atell didn't come across as being very amusing or interesting. Perhaps the fact that every Stern interview these days sucks donkey anus might have something to do with it.

    I caught 10 minutes of that last night and had the exact opposite reaction. DA comes across as funny the same way HS used to be: just discussing his life honestly. To me, it was amazing to hear the Wig say over and over how bad he feels for him and how talented he is when his show is in a coma and on life support when there's a talent like DA who'd kill to earn a decent living sitting in the studio being funny. Not a chance; the Wig's idea of "helping" someone out is giving him a free plug for his t-shirts.

    Yeah, the interview was a big downer, and the OP couldn't have been more wrong. If anything, Howard was fucking with Dave.

    Howard focused right in on Dave's pain, dysfunction, and monetary woes, but not in a funny way, and Dave just took it, and was on the defensive throughout the entire interview......................thus far. I've just crossed over into hour #4, where things are getting decidedly Jewish...................

    Dave: "you make it sound like it's a bad thing! (being with a Jewish chick)"

    :D

    One of Dave Attel's funniest interviews was when he was on after 9/11. He was talking about how he gets stopped all the time at airports, because he looks like a terrorist. And then he said that he was going to start carrying a balloon on planes to appear more friendly to people.

    I'm about as big an Attell fan as you will find, ever since his days on Comedy Central in the early 90's. Having said that, he does not bring his A game to morning shows. If you know anything about Attell, he hates doing them and he normally goes to bed around 5 a.m., so I don't think it's fair to judge him based on a morning drive appearance. I still wouldn't put him (and definitely not Stanhope) on the same level as Bill Hicks, though.

    Bill Hicks was like a moth to a flame when it came to career suicide, be it the way that he took on Leno when Howard was still making Tonight Show appearances or his falling out with Letterman just before he died. People like to remember him now as being a top tier comic when he was alive, but the truth is that he was always marginally on the national consciousness and his career was pretty well in shambles when he came down with cancer. Now, he was the man in the U.K., but his act was always a little bit too intellectually vicious for Americans to really accept en masse, whereas I think Stanhope and Attell are guys who would have done a sitcom or a buddy comedy for the right amount of cash. They're great, but Bill Hicks is the one guy who stuck to his guns until the bitter end (even George Carlin tried to get a sitcom, if you recall) aside from maybe Lenny Bruce, but I doubt any of us are old enough to have seen Lenny when he was alive.

    That is classic Attell.

    Howard manages to ruin every interview by obsessing on something nobody else cares about (this time it was money). The only good guests are the ones who ignore him or throw his stupid questions right back in his face.

    I take back almost every horrible thing I've said about you.
