David Spade should have the patent on sharp-tongued sarcastic humor. His no-holds barred comedy routine spares no one, including himself as he draws from personal anecdotes about his life and latest escapades with celebrities. And you can see him tear into the rich and famous and poke fun at himself this Friday, Oct. 5 and Saturday, Oct. 6 at the Venetian Showroom.
David Spade ventured into the world of comedy more than 20 years ago when he began introducing his dry humor and sarcastic wit at comedy clubs and college campuses across the country. In 1997 a casting agent watched one of Spade’s comedy routines at “The Improv” in Los Angeles and immediately offered him a role in the film Police Academy 4: Citizens on Patrol. But it wasn’t until 1990 that Spade really hit it big when he became a regular cast member on the sketch comedy show “Saturday Night Live.” It took an entire season for audiences to fall in love with Spade’s sarcastic tongue but when they did a slew of smart-alec characters were created including the rude flight attendant who said “buh-bye” to guests leaving the plan as well as Spade’s “Hollywood Minute” reporter bit, which took stabs at tabloid-worthy stars.
After six years of making fun of celebrities and cracking us up with his thick sarcasm, Spade ventured into films with slapstick comedy, most notably with his wild friend and former SNL star, Chris Farley in “Tommy Boy” and “Black Sheep.” He has since gone on to appear in such comedy’s as “Joe Dirt,” “Benchwarmers,” “Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star” and “Grownups.” He has also enjoyed a successful run on sitcoms earning an Emmy nomination for his role as Dennis Finch in the long-running sitcom “Just Shoot Me!” and filling in on ABC’s “8 Simple Rules” after the death of John Ritter.
In 2005, Spade resurrected his sharp-tongued tone from the old “Hollywood Minute” on Comedy Central’s “The Showbiz Show with David Spade” where he hysterically lashed out on celebrities. He has also co-starred in the sitcom “Rules of Engagement.” Recently, he lends his vocal talents in the #1 movie in America this week, Hotel Transylvania, with Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, and Andy Samberg.
Since becoming a regular to Las Vegas, Spade has evolved his show to poke fun at The Entertainment Capital of the World and the people who visit it. He even makes fun of himself, repeatedly pointing out his lack of “coolness” when it comes to staying up late and partying in one of Vegas’ many nightclubs.
To see who Spade will make fun of next don’t miss his show this Friday, Oct. 5 and Saturday, 6 at the Venetian Showroom. You can find discounted tickets right here on Best of Vegas.
