Publisher Description

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.

Funny stuff

David Spade has always been a funny and sarcastic dude and it shows here. Funny and entertaining read. A couple of parts had me rolling on the floor.

Laugh-Out-Loud Biography with Heart

This book made me so happy! I have been a fan of Spade and the gang ( the gang being literally every comedian he was on SNL with) since I was a little kid. I’m 23 and my mom raised me on a hearty diet of her VHS copies of Tommy Boy and Black Sheep and I always watched Joe Dirt when it came on tv.

For me this was a fun romp into not only David’s life, but also a timeline for so many of my favorite comedians turned actors. I watched so many SNL clips while reading this book it’s not even funny (but it was!)

David Spade has always been special to me and I love everything about this book. A must read for any fan of him or comedy in general. Thank you so much for all the laughs you’ve given me over the years David!

Best book ever

This book was seriously my favorite book I’ve ever read. It made me laugh, I got a little teary-eyed at points, and Spade is just an all around fantastic storyteller. 100% recommend.
