10 modern comedy albums that are already classics
Dave Attell – Skanks For The Memories (2003)
Let’s just go on record to say that Dave Attell might be one of the most mimicked comedians out there. His mannerisms and style resonate so well with people that you almost can’t help but subliminally pick up on them.
Skanks For The Memories was an instant classic upon it’s release as it captured Attell’s razor-sharp wit, observations, and terrific ability to take any left of center idea and make it downright hilarious. Attell owns crowds and can take them on any journey he wants.
Though he’s worked on a ton of projects in the decade since Skanks’ release, Attell has yet to release a proper follow-up album. Rumor has it he’s yet to like anything he’s recorded since. If this is true he’s probably harder on himself than any of his fans ever could be. But if there were a tortured genius in comedy Attell would probably be it.
