About Dave Attell:

Born in Queens and raised on Long Island, Dave Attell got into stand-up comedy in the late eighties after graduating from New York University with a degree in Film and Television. He is the creator and host of Dave’s Old Porn on Showtime, which has featured such talent as Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler, Adam Carolla and Daniel Tosh. His stand-up series, DAVE ATTELL’S COMEDY UNDERGROUND and his one hour special, ROAD WORK were featured on Comedy Central and ROAD WORK is streaming on Netflix now!

He was named one of the “25 Funniest People in America” by Entertainment Weekly Magazine. His caustic wit, rapid-fire delivery and his choice of material that can best be described as “very adult” has earned him the reputation as a “comic’s comic.” But if you ask Attell, he’d say, “I’m just trying to get some laughs and sell some drinks.” In 2001, Attell used this love of booze and laughter to create and host the hit series, Insomniac with Dave Attell for Comedy Central. A travelogue show in which Attell goes from city to city looking for late-night fun, The New York Times called the show, “a doubly rare beast, a comedy without rancor and a travel show about the virtues of the American underdog.” To Attell, the Insomniac show is more of a cross between Girls Gone Wild and Cops. After four seasons of Insomniac, Attell taped several hour-long Insomniac specials overseas in Japan, Germany, England and Brazil. Once back in the states, he headed out on a thirty-five city theatre tour ending in Vegas, where he hosted a two-hour special for Comedy Central featuring Sean Rouse, Greg Geraldo and Dane Cook, some of the biggest comics in the country.

Dave Attell has made numerous appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Howard Stern Show, Last Call with Carson Daly and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He also appeared in Chris Rock’s cult film Pootie Tang. Other television credits include FOX’s Arrested Development, NBC’s Ed, HBO, Comedy Central’s Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn and his own half-hour stand-up special Comedy Central Presents Dave Attell.

Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Extends Long-Term Partnership with Mohegan Sun

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

SAN ANTONIO, TX (April 1st, 2018) – Yesterday at the NCAA Men’s Final Four in San Antonio, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced a ten-year partnership extension with Connecticut-based entertainment venue Mohegan Sun. The Hall of Fame and Mohegan Sun have enjoyed an 11 year partnership and this announcement will continue the relationship for the long term.

“We are very appreciative of our partnership with Mohegan Sun and the memories we’ve been able to create together over the years,” said John L. Doleva, President and CEO of the Basketball Hall of Fame. “Our partnership with Mohegan Sun has been a game changer for the Hall of Fame and we very much appreciate Mohegan Sun’s desire to remain a big part of the Hall of Fame family for many years to come.”

The partnership will continue to include several annual college basketball events at Mohegan Sun Arena including the Tip-Off Tournament in November.  Mohegan Sun will remain the exclusive sponsor of Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement weekend, hosting the Class of 2018 for the annual Hall of Fame Induction Celebration and Ring Presentation at their resort in Uncasville, Connecticut.

“In the many years of working with the Naismith Hall of Fame, Mohegan Sun has helped host annual enshrinement ceremonies, honoring some of biggest legends in the game of basketball. The partnership has also grown to routinely showcase incredible basketball games and tournaments at the highest collegiate level inside Mohegan Sun Arena,” said Ray Pineault, President & General Manager of Mohegan Sun. “We’re proud to have been a part of so many of these great memories and are truly thrilled that it’s going to continue well into the future.”

In addition to their partnership extension, Mohegan Sun has made a significant contribution to the Basketball Hall of Fame’s capital campaign to support complete renovation of the museum. With the donation from Mohegan Sun, the Basketball Hall of Fame has surpassed its $30 million campaign goal; the Hall’s campaign will continue however until its scheduled end date of December 2018.  In acknowledgement of Mohegan Sun’s generous gift the organization will receive prominent recognition in the newly renovated guest welcome center at the Hall known as ‘The Tip Off Pavilion.’

“Three years ago, we set out on a capital campaign to financially secure the Hall’s endowment and renovate our museum to the level of quality our Hall of Famers and fans of the game deserve,” said Jerry Colangelo, Chairman of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Board. “Through the generosity of our incredible partners like Mohegan Sun, I’m happy to say we have exceeded our goals. As a team, we won’t let up. We are going to continue forward with our fundraising until all who want to participate have that chance by year end. Mohegan Sun has allowed us to dramatically achieve our initial goal and for that we are very grateful.”

The capital campaign has been silently making headway over the last three years with generous backing from many in the global basketball community including Junior Bridgeman, Jerry Colangelo, Grant Hill, Mannie Jackson, Michael Jordan, Phil Knight, Nancy Lieberman, George Raveling, Adam Silver and Elaine Wynn, as well as several NBA ownership groups. Notable coaches that have already stepped forward to support the cause include, Steve Alford, Geno Auriemma, Jim Boeheim, Larry Brown, Jim Calhoun, John Calipari, Rick Carlisle, Billy Donovan, Mike Krzyzewski, George Raveling, Bill Self, John Thompson, Roy Williams, Jay Wright and others.
