The Stage Welcomes Dave Attell
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – May 18, 2017

Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico's Best Bet, welcomes world-renowned comedian and blue comedy pioneer Dave Attell to The Stage on Thursday, May 25, and Friday, May 26. Attell will perform two shows each night with the first beginning at 7 p.m. and the second at 9:30 p.m.

Although he had been performing stand-up comedy at open mic nights throughout Manhattan since the late '80s, Dave Attell's career as a professional comedian took off in 1993 when "Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels saw him appear on "The Late Show with David Letterman." Michaels recruited Attell as a writer, which led to on-camera opportunities and ushered him into the professional comedy scene. Over the next few years, Attell developed a close relationship with HBO, appearing twice in HBO specials alongside Louis C.K., Anthony Clark, Eric Tunney and Dave Chappelle and starring in his own 60-minute installment of HBO Comedy Showcase and an episode of HBO Comedy Half-Hour. Drawing on his New York roots, Attell's bold style of comedy is raw and highly original with a pronounced affinity for dark, off-color humor. Attell's other television credits include "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" where he was a writer and commentator, Comedy Central's "Insomniac with Dave Attell" where he would act as a "tour guide" exploring the late night happenings of cities around the world and "Comedy Underground with Dave Attell" which featured mostly uncensored stand-up performances and guest comedians including Amy Shumer, Ari Shaffer, Jeff Ross, Brad Williams, Nikki Glaser, Louis Katz and Ralphie May among others.

Tickets to Dave Attell's performances at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino range between $20 and $50 and can be purchased online at www.thestageatthestar.com. Attendees must be 21 years old or older. For more information, please call (505) 771-5680.
