A hilarious and biting memoir from the actor, comedian and Saturday Night Live alumni.

David Spade is best known for his harsh “Hollywood” Minute Sketches on SNL, his starring roles in movies like Tommy Boy and Joe Dirt, and his seven-year stint as Dennis Finch on the series Just Shoot Me. Now, with a wit as dry as the weather in his home state of Arizona, the “comic brat extraordinaire” delivers a memoir.

Spade takes fans back to his childhood as a wannabe cool younger brother and recounts his excruciating road-tour to fame—when he was regularly mistaken for a fourteen-year-old. He dishes about his time on SNL during the beloved Rock/Sandler/Farley era of the 1990s, and brags about the ridiculous perks that fame has brought into his life, including a crazy assistant who attacked him while he was sleeping, being threatened on the street in Beverley Hills by Eddie Murphy, and being one of the shortest guys at the Playboy mansion (the views weren’t bad).

Sometimes dirty, sometimes just plain silly, David Spade reminds us what made him one of our favorite funny people.

Quotes & Awards

  • “No one but David Spade should narrate his memoir—one of the funniest in years. You can almost see him wink and smirk as he talks about his six-year stint on Saturday Night Live, his fear of Eddie Murphy, and life on the road as a stand-up comic…But fame did not come easy to the fair-haired Arizona boy, who often found himself way over his head but who succeeded through his charm and quick wit. Listeners will enjoy the time spent with Spade. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    AudioFile

  • “In his first book, Spade details the years before the fame…[and] educates readers on the mechanics of putting together a weekly, ninety-minute, live comedy show…He barely mentions his nominations for several industry awards. He does, however, provide copious, often crude accounts of his disappointments with his early sex life—and his successes later on. Some vulnerability mixed with crass, frat-boy humor.”
