A hilarious and biting memoir from the actor, comedian andÂ Saturday Night LiveÂ alumni David Spade.
David Spade is best known for his harsh âHollywoodâ Minute Sketches onÂ SNL, his starring roles in movies likeÂ Joe DirtÂ andÂ Tommy Boy, Â and his seven-year stint as Dennis Finch on the seriesÂ Just Shoot Me.Â Now, with a wit as dry as the weather in his home state of Arizona, the âcomic brat extraordinaireâ tells his story inÂ Almost Interesting.
First Taking fans back to his childhood as a wannabe cool younger brother and recounting his excruciating road-tour to fameâwhen 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 motherâs old suitcase full of props. He also covers his years onÂ SNLÂ during the beloved Rock/Sandler/Farley era of the 1990s, including hisÂ close working relationship and friendship with Chris FarleyÂ and brags about the ridiculous perks that fame has brought into his life, including the constant fear of being fired,Â 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. Â
Sometimes dirty, always funny, and as sharp as a tack,Â Almost InterestingÂ reminds you why David Spade is one of our generationâs favorite funny guys.
