Former 'Insomniac' host to also exec produce the series and special

The man who brought insomniacs to Comedy Central will be doing so once again in 2014.

A decade after “Insomniac with Dave Attell” came to a close on the cabler, Comedy Central has greenlit a latenight series with Dave Attell, along with an hourlong stand-up special, slating both for next year.

Network ordered eight halfhour episodes of the untitled latenight stand-up series, which will be hosted by Attell and feature him and his fellow comedians uncensored and unfiltered.

Additionally, his new stand-up special will mark Attell’s first one since “Captain Miserable” on HBO seven years ago.

Attell has worked on several projects at Comedy Central in recent years, including the revival of “The Gong Show with Dave Attell” and contributions to “The Daily Show.” It was his work on “Insomniac,” however — a latenight travelogue series that ran for four years — that cemented Attell as a cult fave on Comedy Central.

Both the untitled latenight series and hourlong stand-up spesh are exec produced by Attell and 3 Arts.

Attell is repped by 3 Arts and CAA.
