David Spade: Just A Preview Of What You'll Be Seeing

Posted: Updated:

David Spade loves his fans...but that doesn't mean he's not going to make fun of them. Spade talked to Steve and Maria Monday about his upcoming gig at the Fonda Theatre, which will be recorded for a special on Comedy Central. Tickets are on sale now for both shows on the night of December 5th. Spade joked about the pressure of performing without a net while cameras role.

"It's regular people, I thought it was hired extras like 'Price is Right', like they would just applaud at everything but now they want me to work a little harder and get real people to laugh..."

Spade talked about the love he has for his fans and joked about how they can be pretty nasty...

"If you're out with a Sean Penn or those guys, people give them some room. Not me. It's headlocks, they shake my hand when they're drunk like 50 times...and they're all sweaty, it's like shaking hands with a shamwow, it's gross....they're all nice...when you're a comedian, they just picture some comedy movie and the nice part is it make 'em happy so they're in a good mood when they see you."

Sometimes fans of certain movies tend to sound off during his shows...

"Everyone gets some loud mouth soup into them, they need to get some points across...a lot of Joe Dirts too. They yell Joe Dirt jokes right in the middle."

The funnyman also agreed with Maria that his friend, the late Chris Farley, would have killed it doing Toronto Mayor Rob Ford on SNL.

"It's such a fastball, it would have been real fun. He would be funnier than the real guy...the real guy's pretty funny though. It's hard to add to that...he would add falling through a wall or something."

Spade also talked about the possibility of "Grown Ups 3", working with Farley, and the pilot he's writing about a burned out band manager from the 90's whose only clients are a Vegas DJ and a Christian boy band called "The 5 Commandments". He'll be performing at the Fonda Theatre at 8PM and 10PM on December 5th.

Fun Facts About David Spade: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) He is an American actor, comedian, and television personality. He is best known for his nasally and high pitched voice and his use of cutting and sarcastic one liners and his sometimes childish stage personality.

2) He rose to fame in the 1990s as a cast member on Saturday Night Live, for co-starring in the 1995 comedy Tommy Boy, and from 1997 until 2003 when he starred as Dennis Finch on Just Shoot Me!. He also starred as C. J. Barnes, along with Katey Sagal, James Garner, and Kaley Cuoco on 8 Simple Rules. He starred as Russell Dunbar on the CBS sitcom Rules of Engagement. He also is working with TBS on an animated series based on his film, Joe Dirt.

3) With the help of friend and fellow comedian, Dennis Miller, he joined Saturday Night Live in 1990 as a regular cast member and writer. While there, his well-known sarcasm became popular, and his smart aleck characters in a number of sketches were hits. Some of them include: a flight attendant who bids a perceived-as-unpleasant "Buh-Bye" to each passenger upon disembarking; a receptionist for Dick Clark who, as a matter of policy, asks people indiscriminately "And you are?"; and the sarcastic "Hollywood Minute" reporter who communicates with celebrities by means of one-liners. Other characters include Christy Henderson from the Gap Girls, and Karl from the Karl's Video sketches. He also has done impressions of famous celebrities, such as Brad Pitt and Michael J. Fox. According to interviews with Spade, most of the material that he wrote early in his time at SNL was given to Dana Carvey to perform on the show. Due to his relatively low work rate, he was in danger of being fired as a performer, until the Hollywood Minute segment secured his position.
