Dave Attell Wife, Marriage
There is a paucity of information on his private life due to his excessive reserve and the desire to keep his private affairs secret from the media.
Although he has not confirmed his current relationship status, it appears that he is not seeing anyone at the moment.
Sarah Silverman, herself a comedian, was the woman he was most publicly linked to. They had a brief romance in 1989. Their personal lives never interfered with their job at Saturday Night Live back in the day.
Amy Schumer, who is close friends with Dave, honored him by giving her baby the name Gene Attell Fischer. Dave dated Sarah Silverman in the late 1980s.
The fact that Gene Attell sounds like “genital” prompted her to rename her son David at a later date.
