Yeah it was a borderline gag gift

Especially since, even though my sister's the *real* Spade fan (think she's seen him before- I also bought her "Just Shoot Me" on DVD because it's one of her favorite shows), she didn't get a ticket for herself so I would have just gone alone. But yeah, even back in the 90's, I never thought his standup was particularly good, so I wasn't really expecting much.
Attell is someone I've really warmed up to though. Back in the "Insomniac" days, I thought he was just a generic dirty alkie comic, but if you actually watch/listen to his full sets (which are maddeningly rare), it's clear that he can drive a crowd into hysterics like few other comics can. Very quick witted and a killer delivery- there's a reason so many younger comics site him as a major source of inspiration.
