Nominated in 1999 for an Emmy Award for his memorable role as Dennis Finch, the wise-cracking, power-hungry assistant on Just Shoot Me, David Spade became a household favorite during his five-year stint as a cast member on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. He was also nominated for a Golden Globe in 2000 and an American Comedy Award in 1999 for his work on NBC’s Just Shoot Me. Spade continues to be a box office draw and continues to do stand-up tours nationwide. This past spring, Spade starred in the Netflix original comedy, The Wrong Missy, which was the number one movie on Netflix in the days following its release on May 13, 2020. The film was also announced as the eighth most watched Netflix original movie in the company’s history.

Other popular film credits include Sony Pictures’ Benchwarmers and Paramount Pictures’ Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, the latter which he co-wrote with Fred Wolf. Both opened number one at the box office and enjoyed critical and commercial success. Spade also co-starred with SNL alumnus Chris Farley in the films Tommy Boy and Blacksheep, the former for which the pair won a 1996 MTV Movie Award for “Best On-Screen Duo.” He has also appeared in Reality Bites, Light Sleeper, Coneheads and Lost & Found (which he also co-wrote the screenplay).

Born in Birmingham, Michigan, and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, Spade began his career by performing stand-up comedy in clubs, theaters and colleges across the country. He made his television debut on SNL and was soon after named the “Hot Stand-Up Comedian of the Year” by Rolling Stone Magazine. As a writer and a performer on SNL for five years, he is best known for his memorable characters including the sarcastic “Hollywood Minute” reporter on “Weekend Update” and catch phrases like “And you are…?” and “Buh-Bye!”
