Publisher's Summary

A hilarious and biting memoir from the actor, comedian, and Saturday Night Live alumnus.
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 14-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 Beverly 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.

Very interesting and transparent and crude.

I have to agree with some reviews I read about the end kind of dying off. I really enjoyed the stories and I love the way David delivered them. I know for many the fbomb is a normal part of their language, but for me, I don't care for it from overusing it as a teen. I am a married mom of 3 and felt guilty listening to some parts because of their raunchiness. But being a huge fan of both him and Chris Farley I wanted to finish so I could really hear what life was like during that time knowing that David must really really miss his good friend and how sad it is that this duo is not able to entertain us anymore. I just love when celebrities openly share their heart because it makes them seem more real. I loved this book, just not a fan of the fbomb being used constantly as an adjective or the c word which I hate even more. And I'm sure most of you reading this will call me a prude and
should be done rolling your eyes by the end of this sentence.

Better than expected

First off, I literally laughed out loud throughout the book. I love his humor and the delivery. He's so candid...It's surprising and entertaining. He sounds like a super down to earth celeb. Like fame never changed him.... Took long enough and he is an oak for withstanding it all and keeping at it. He is really funny.
I like him more now than before yet I always found his subtle humor really funny. It was worth every penny FOR ME. I realize everyone's humor is different....but the title is a little off. It wasn't almost interesting. It was quite interesting... But he would never call it that because he's super humble and he doesn't want to seem pathetic. But for the record, you're not!! You're really funny :)
