Almost Interesting: The Memoir

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: David Spade

Narrated By: David Spade

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: October 2015

Duration: 7 hours 20 minutes

Summary:

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.

    I am not sold as a fan of David Spade and never seek him out in movies or comedy etc. I am a huge fan of autobiographies which is why I purchased David’s book. It is a good book I like it he is relatable and not trying to impress. It made me laugh a few times (which isn’t easy). I will listen to it again.

    If you enjoy comedy, love SNL, or David spade this is the book for you. Funny, heartfelt, and definitely real is what this book is. Definitely worth the listen!

  • Casey Maher

    This book was so hilarious. I listened to it twice, and could probably listen to it again (I probably will down the line). I've always been a fan of David, but this made me love him even more. It's great being able to actually HEAR him read this, too. I think it gives it a little something extra, (as opposed to just reading the book). Especially love the anecdotes about his life with Chris Farley.
