Thread: Dave's Old Porn

    Dave's Old Porn

    I've been meaning to make a thread. Dave's Old Porn is basically MST3K but with Dave Attel and other comedians and sometimes porn stars sitting on a couch and commentating on old 70's and 80's porn. So basically Dave made a show based on the RSP demographic. Only downside (maybe?) is that each episode is 30 minutes and they rarely cover just one film and go for an array of pictures and no hardcore on display.

    Best episodes have been the ones where a legendary porn star has been a featured guest which includes Ron Jeremy (of course), Robert Kerman and Vanessa Del Rio. Unfortunately it's on Showtime so no Netflix/Amazon Instant Video options as of yet. A season 3 has yet to be decided upon and Dave Attel spent a small fortune to do the show and will likely not recoup the costs involved.

    Awesome show. If you have a chance then watch it.

    Sounds interesting...I guess the 30 mins time limit keeps it from getting boring....

    Will have to check it out somehow....

    The show is great. When we had a free Showtime weekend, my wife and I caught up on the first two seasons. Hilarious watching "new" porn star guests like Jesse Jane gawk at the missionary camera angles and lack of endless penetration shots.

    Didn't it get canceled?

    I enjoyed it for what it was. I understand why some fans were irritated, but imo it's too much to expect a show like this to be Inside the Actor's Studio for porn. It was occasionally painful when the comedians didn't demonstrate respect or made played out jokes about bush (which happened a lot), but when the chemistry worked with the guests (as in the Seka episode) it was kind of lovely.

    I always got the impression that Dave respected the performers. The Robert Kerman and Amy Schumer episode was great too. It seemed like Schumer really liked Rob and wasn't condescending about it.

    ^ I got that impression also. I also noticed Dave seemed to get irritated with some of the comedians douchey behaviour and called them out on the slick, which was satisfying. The worst was Adam Corolla. God what an asshole.
