A hilarious and biting memoir from the actor, comedian and
Saturday Night Live alumni David Spade.
David Spade is best known for his harsh “Hollywood” Minute
Sketches on SNL, his starring roles in movies like Joe Dirt
and Tommy Boy, 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” tells his story in Almost Interesting.
First Taking fans back to his childhood as a wannabe cool
younger brother and recounting his excruciating road-tour to
fame—when he was regularly mistaken for a ten year-old,
Spade then dishes about his time crisscrossing the country
as a comedian, for low-paying gigs and dragging along his
mother’s old suitcase full of props. He also covers his
years on SNL during the beloved Rock/Sandler/Farley era of
the 1990s, including his close working relationship and
friendship with Chris Farley and brags about the ridiculous
perks that fame has brought into his life, including the
constant fear of being fired, a crazy ex-assistant who
attached him while he was sleeping, a run-in with Eddie
Murphy on the mean streets of Beverley Hills, and of course
an endless supply of hot chicks.
Sometimes dirty, always funny, and as sharp as a tack,
Almost Interesting reminds you why David Spade is one of our
generation’s favorite funny guys.
