Backstage at Bonnaroo: Dave Attell

It might be shocking to those of you who’ve never been, but the hottest ticket at Bonnaroo, at least in the two years we’ve attended, is the comedy tent. From the moment the festival gates opened on Thursday, fans formed massive lines to catch sets from Lewis Black, David Cross, Flight of the Conchords, and Dave Attell, who stopped by for a chat on Sunday. Watch and look out for great one-liners about masturbation in hot weather, drugs, and festival hygiene. Look out for Attell’s new comedy special on HBO, which was taped in D.C. earlier this month, and he’s heading out to do USO shows for the troops later this summer.
