About David Spade:
Nominated for an Emmy Award for his memorable role as Dennis Finch, the wise-cracking, power-hungry assistant on Just Shoot Me, David Spade became a household favorite during his five-year stint as a cast member on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. He was also nominated for a Golden Globe in 2000 and an American Comedy Award in 1999 for his work on NBC’s Just Shoot Me. Spade continues to be a box office draw and continues to do stand-up tours nationwide. His most recent stand-up special Nothing Personal debuted on Netflix in April. Spade can currently be heard co-hosting his podcast Fly on the Wall alongside fellow SNL alumni Dana Carvey. In each episode they interview cast members, hosts, writers, and musical guests as they share never-before told stories about their careers; including how they made their way to the show and how being a part of SNL’s cultural history has impacted their lives beyond the show. The podcast premiered #1 in the comedy category and in the top five overall on Apple’s podcast chart. The podcast has since been renewed for a second season and has included interviews with Sir Paul McCartney, Lorne Michaels, Nick Kroll, Maya Rudolph, Jimmy Fallon, Martin Short, Molly Shannon, Tom Hanks, Tina Fey and many more. New episodes are released every Wednesday everywhere podcasts are available.

He starred in the Netflix original comedy, The Wrong Missy, which was the number one movie on Netflix in the days following its release on May 13th, 2020. The film was also announced as the eighth most watched Netflix original movie in the company’s history. That same year, Spade also hosted his own late-night series Lights Out with David Spade on Comedy Central.

In 2015, Spade reprised his role as the hilarious and endearing “white trash” misfit, Joe Dirt, in the sequel to the cult classic, Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser, directed by Fred Wolf, with whom he also co-wrote the script. The film has been streamed over two million times, making it Crackle’s most watched original movie to date. Later that same year, Spade also released his memoir, Almost Interesting, through Dey Street Books, which went on to become a New York Times Bestseller.

Other popular film credits include Sony Pictures’ Benchwarmers and Paramount Pictures’ Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, the latter which he co-wrote with Fred Wolf. Both opened number one at the box office and enjoyed critical and commercial success. Spade also co-starred with SNL alumnus Chris Farley in the films Tommy Boy and Blacksheep, the former for which the pair won a 1996 MTV Movie Award for “Best On-Screen Duo.” He has also appeared in Reality Bites, Light Sleeper, Coneheads, and Lost & Found (which he also co-wrote the screenplay).

Born in Birmingham, Michigan, and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, Spade began his career by performing stand-up comedy in clubs, theaters and colleges across the country. He made his television debut on SNL and was soon after named the “Hot Stand Up Comedian of the Year” by Rolling Stone Magazine. As a writer and a performer on SNL for five years, he is best known for his memorable characters including the sarcastic “Hollywood Minute” reporter on “Weekend Update” and catch phrases like “And you are…?” and “Buh-Bye!”
