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 attacked him while he was sleeping, a run-in with Eddie Murphy on the mean streets of Beverly 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.” Kirkus Reviews
