A quick guide to what's happening in nightlife each week

Comedian DAVID ATTELL popularized his roaming comedic antics in the hit Comedy Central show "Insomniac with David Attell." The show combines demented travelogue with an absurd pseudo-documentary approach to the after-hours experience in America's so-called coolest nightlife spots. You could call him an anthropologist of insanity. Amazingly, he finds time out of all that drunken debauchery to still do his foul-mouthed, subversive stand-up, which he performs NOV. 8-9. $22.50. Fri.-Sat., 7 and 9 p.m. Punchline, 280 Hilderbrand Drive. 404-252-LAFF. www.punchline.com.
