Dave Attell and Chelsea Talk Golden Age of Porn And Too Much Hair (VIDEO)

Dave Attell, 'Chelsea Lately'While pornography may be as easy to find these days as typing in the wrong thing on Google, there was a time when it took work to procure those low quality tapes, and then find a way to watch it so no one would walk in on you. Dave Attell waxed nostalgic about 1970s porn on 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!).

But there was one aspect of that era that was a huge turn off for Chelsea Handler. "I just don't like a lot of hair," she explained. "I don't like it on women. I don't like it on men." And pornography of that era certainly had a lot more of that going on.

Dave Attel hosts The Gong ShowThe wackiest talent showcase (yes, wackier than America's Got Talent) is back with Comedy Central's The Gong Show. Hosted by Comedy Central veteran Dave Attell, The Gong Show will feature seven to ten bizarre acts each episode that will be judged by a rotating panel of celebrities. At the end of each show, the act with the highest score will be crowned the winner.

The premiere episode will be judged by Brian Posehn of Just Shoot Me, Steve Schirripa of The Sopranos, and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. Other judges include Adam Carolla of Drawn Together, Kate Walsh of Private Practice, Andy Dick of Less Than Perfect, Ron White, Dave Navarro, Greg Giraldo, Jim Norton, and JB Smoove of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Arrested Development: Motherboy XXX - VIDEO

Arrested Development: Motherboy XXX
Do not adjust your web browser. You are now entering the
Retro Squad, where we are reviewing past episodes of classic TV shows.

(S02E13) Originally aired March 13th, 2005 -- There are way too many great episodes of Arrested Development. I can't think of any other sitcom that has as much replay value as this show does. Maybe Seinfeld, but c'mon - Jerry, Kramer, George, and Elaine had a lot of stinkers. I don't think the Bluths ever disappointed. When we nominated Arrested Development to get the "Retro Squad" treatment, "Motherboy XXX" immediately popped into my head. It's one of my favorites because it blends so many different stories together and it includes what I think is quite possibly the funniest, and most important, inside joke ever featured on the show.

Comedy Central brings back The Gong Show

by Kristin Sample, posted May 6th 2008 10:04AM
The Gong ShowComedy Central is reviving The Gong Show. The original '70s variety show featured amateur acts who tried to impress the celebrity judges panel and avoid ... the gong.

The new show, which is currently casting for tapings on both coasts in Los Angeles and New York, will be hosted by Dave Attell. Yeah, remember him? The former stand-up comic from New York had his own show on Comedy Central called Insomniac with Dave Attell. I used to love that show. Attell would walk around the streets of different cities (mostly here in the States, but he went aboard too) and talk to people who were completely inebriated. He also occasionally talked to people who worked night shifts. I think he'll be a great host for this new project.

I think that because this show is on Comedy Central, it's going to be way more interesting and entertaining than the train wreck that is America's Got Talent. What do you think? Will you watch the new Gong Show?

Just to clear up any potential confusion, this post is not about traveling television sets, nor is it about fictional TV characters who happen to travel. This is a list dedicated to real travelers who have taken us on fantastic journeys in the form of their own television shows.

Short-Lived Shows: Insomniac with Dave Attell

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 20th 2006 10:48AM
dave attellWhen I first learned of Insomniac, I thought it would be a show from which to stay far away. I envisioned a show where some New Yorker would travel to other cities, delve into the nightlife, and ultimately compare everything to the dank Xanadu that is NYC. But then, a voice popped into my head and said, quite reasonably, "not all New Yorkers are like that, you narrow-minded bastard."
