Almost Interesting: The Memoir

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: David Spade

Narrated By: David Spade

Date: October 2015

Duration: 6 hours 32 minutes


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

David Spade is best known for his harsh “Hollywood” Minute Sketches on SNL, his starring roles in movies like Joe Dirt and Tommy Boy,  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” tells his story in Almost Interesting.

First Taking fans back to his childhood as a wannabe cool younger brother and recounting his excruciating road-tour to fame—when he was regularly mistaken for a ten year-old, Spade then dishes about his time crisscrossing the country as a comedian, for low-paying gigs and dragging along his mother’s old suitcase full of props. He also covers his years on SNL during the beloved Rock/Sandler/Farley era of the 1990s, including his close working relationship and friendship with Chris Farley and brags about the ridiculous perks that fame has brought into his life, including the constant fear of being fired, a crazy ex-assistant who attacked him while he was sleeping, a run-in with Eddie Murphy on the mean streets of Beverly Hills, and of course an endless supply of hot chicks.  

Sometimes dirty, always funny, and as sharp as a tack, Almost Interesting reminds you why David Spade is one of our generation’s favorite funny guys.

    I thought this would be funny but I was not prepared for just how funny this was! Spade is hysterical--I was laughing out loud throughout--but also a great storyteller with an interesting life story and a self-deprecating manner that showed a level of vulnerability I wasn't expecting. I'd recommend this to anyone but the most prudish.

  • Daniel R.

    That was soo real and great! David Spade is truly a one of a kind. I loved how he incorporated all of the aspects of his struggle to the top while keeping it real. The friends that were true or not. He showed a classical respect for the business and in turn proved his superior talent! Dan Richter

    Spade definitely has a face for audio books. I kid of course. his voice is good for this, I fully enjoyed this book, and his way of reading it to me. I would put it on a timer, and listen as I was going to sleep. he basically tucked me in. I really appreciate that

  • Alisha L.

    very hilarious and informative. I cant believe the things he used to do. awesome book

  • Troy F.

    Loved the book. Great meaningful stories with signature Spade humor. Audiobooks read by the author are often hit or miss because good authors aren't always good voice talents. In this case, it was perfect.
