Dave Attell

He may have put the kibosh on his travelogue/boozeathon TV show Insomniac long before the show’s creative last call (or before his liver self-destructed), but Dave Attell recently resurfaced as the caustic, somewhat lecherous host of Comedy Central’s revival of The Gong Show. And while it may come as a surprise that he’s been on the wagon nearly a year, the lightning-quick comic is just as dirty and debauched onstage as ever. He still relentlessly pummels the darkest crevices of society, without the booze crutch. Bottom line: He remains the same old down-and-dirty Dave, just with tighter focus and a smaller bar tab. Moore Theatre, 1932 Second Ave., 467-5510, www.themoore.com. $27.50–$32.50. 8 p.m. JULIE SEABAUGH
