We all know David from his years at Saturday Night Live, his movies Tommy Boy and Joe Dirt, but his stand up comedy chops are underrated. He is sensational.
In this candid interview, we talked about just that: the night he came back to host SNL, when he was scheduled do an opening bit with Adam Sandler. Sandler was a no-show and Spade was forced to do a monologue on the spot. Great story.
We addressed his public persona, too. After talking with a pretty sweet guy for 10 minutes, I told him I’d been wary of our interview.
“George Segal on Just Shoot Me said that 90% of the people that talk to him say, ‘Hey, how is it working with David Spade? Is he a real dick? He’s a real a**h***, right?’ ‘Actually, he’s not bad.’ They’re always shocked.”
I caught David on his cell, going into a meeting on the Sony Pictures Lot in L.A. You won’t believe one of the possible movie projects they were going to discuss. Enjoy. And, go to his show. Tickets here.
