Why see David Spade?

Don't Miss David Spade Live

A natural prankster most of his life, Spade was pushed immediately into stand-up comedy by friends and appeared in nightclubs and college campuses all over the country.

In 1990, the diminutive, flaxen-haired comedian finally hit the big time as a regular cast member and writer on "Saturday Night Live". Slow at first in gaining acceptance on the show, his razor-sharp sarcasm eventually caught on by his second season, when he played a number of smart-aleck characters in a variety of sketches, including a highly disinterested airline steward who bids each passenger adieu with a very sardonic "buh-bye" and an irritating receptionist for Dick Clark Productions who greets each huge celebrity with an unknowing "And you are . . . ?"

A master of the putdown, Spade's "Hollywood Minute" reporter also took cynical advantage of tabloid-worthy stars. Spade impersonated such luminaries as Michael J. Fox, Kurt Cobain and Tom Petty during his tenure.

Television has been more accepting over the years, with Spade earning an Emmy nomination as the droll, skirt-chasing secretary Dennis Finch on "Just Shoot Me!" (1997) and filling in after the untimely death of John Ritter on ABC's "8 Simple Rules... for Dating My Teenage Daughter" (2002) as Katey Sagal's unprincipled nephew.

David Spade is HILARIOUS!

The show in Chicago was amazing. David has the best comic timing and he is an awesome storyteller. I could not stop laughing. There was a blizzard and he still made it in and gave the very best performance. I can’t wait to see him perform again in the future. 10 Stars!!! ⭐️ ... Read more

"You Can Tell a man...

... by the relationship he has with his mother" (as my own mom used to say). It's endearing that you can tell he truly respects and adores his mother. We had a fun evening with Spade at The Cove. He was brilliant-- seemed so comfortable and at ease with himself. He certainly did not disappoint! Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves quite immensely. He's a sweetheart. His delivery is what cracks me up, and his facial expressions. I like that he's not too raunchy, and has enough good material that he doesn't feel the need to have to pick the lowest hanging fruit, like so many other comics usually resort to. His slightly self deprecating and semi-clean humor is what's won the hearts of so many... young and older, alike. Our only complaint was the line at the bar(s). That has to change. Thanks, Davey, for a great evening. Come see us in Tulsa again and again! ... Read more

Great show

The 2 preceding comedians were excellent even though the show didn’t get started until close to 7:30 and was finished by 8:50. Spade’s show consisted mainly of his Nexflix show and gave no encore!! We would have loved to have heard some of his older stuff too! ... Read more
