9780062376978: Almost Interesting: Everything You Didn't Want to Know About Me...and More

A hilarious and biting memoir from the actor, comedian and Saturday Night Live alumni.

David Spade is best known for his harsh "Hollywood" Minute Sketches on SNL, his starring roles in movies like Tommy Boy and Joe Dirt, 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" delivers a memoir.

Spade takes fans back to his childhood as a wannabe cool younger brother and recounts his excruciating road-tour to fame—when he was regularly mistaken for a fourteen year-old. He dishes about his time on SNL during the beloved Rock/Sandler/Farley era of the 1990s, and brags about the ridiculous perks that fame has brought into his life, including a crazy assistant who attacked him while he was sleeping, being threatened on the street in Beverley Hills by Eddie Murphy, and being one of the shortest guys at the Playboy mansion (the views weren’t bad).

Sometimes dirty, sometimes just plain silly, David Spade reminds us what made him one of our favorite funny people.

Book Description Dey Street Books, United States, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. I ve learned over the last year that books are a lot harder to write than Twitter posts. (free plug)Welcome to my book, guys. Here are 200 pages of my blood, sweat, and jizz. It took a long time to write, and I hope you think it was worth it. These are the stories I tell to my friends or at dinner when I m drunk and everyone darts their eyes around and squirms in their chair hoping I ll finish soon. Others I ve told on Stern or Ellen or anyone else I can name-drop.It s me telling you about my fake problems in life and a few real ones (my neck is actually really a disaster). It is a book about comedy, and how I came up from the dusty roads of Arizona with my OP shorts and my blond fluffy hair, to the mean streets of Beverly Hills, with nothing but a few props in my mom s old honeymoon suitcase and a few dry jokes. I blather on about how I got into stand-up, how I lost my virginity, and meeting Johnny Carson, to my years on Saturday Night Live (I couldn t write decent sketches for shit for a long time), to making Tommy Boy with Farlz, to the time I got the shit kicked out of me by my assistant while I was wearing a Coneheads T-shirt . . . this is my memoir.So, anyway, take a minute . . . to buy this, you don t even have to read it, just gave away all the good parts, anyway. Who reads books, right? Fuck this, let s go do molly at Coachella!. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062376978
