I don't get it.

I rather like Dave Attell, though anyone who says that he has the greatest job on earth is wrong (it's Kevin Brauch). He's reasonably funny and seems to enjoy life, which is a sadly hard-to-find trait lately.

But I don't understand the appeal of Insomniac. Watching other people get drunk and behave irresponsibly is not funny! Well, the latter can be. I mean, I laugh at Jackass when I'm not hiding my eyes or retching. But Dave Attell doesn't have a giant panda suit (that I know of) - all he does is visit late-night bars and the Real World houses and spill beer. Why is this entertaining?
