Dave Attell and Comedy Central will be keeping fans up late into the night once again as the #1 brand in comedy is back in business with the iconic comic, ordering its first-ever uncensored, weekly late-night stand-up series and a one-hour original stand-up special, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Content Development and Original Programming, Comedy Central. The eight episode series and the one-hour stand-up special are executive produced by Dave Attell and 3 Arts and set to premiere in 2014.
About the deal, Kent Alterman stated,
"When I was first approached for this, I thought someone said Dave Chappelle. I immediately said yes. I love Dave Attell, too, so it's fine."
The Uncensored Late Night Series will be hosted by Dave Attell and consist of eight half-hour episodes featuring him and his fellow comedians as never seen before: uncensored and unfiltered. The series will celebrate comics in their truest and most authentic form and will feature sets from up-and-coming talent as well as familiar faces in the comedy world as well as unscripted, interstitial moments throughout each episode.
