Host Dave Attell goes through a particular city at night, beginning with his performance at a local comedy club, then going to various bars, landmarks and clubs. Along the way Attell cracked jokes with passersby and took pictures with a disposable camera.

The 30-minute program ran for four seasons on Comedy Central and continued with six one-hour specials that were filmed in Tokyo, Amsterdam, Rio de Janeiro, Dublin, London, and the Southern US. Two volumes of the show under the title The Best of Insomniac Uncensored were released on DVD.
