David Spade has had a long and incredibly successful career in film and television comedy, and the famous funnyman brings his A-game to his run of residency shows in The Sands Showroom at The Venetian in Las Vegas.
Spade has been performing comedy since he was in is 20’s, and he became a permanent cast member on Saturday Night Live in 1990. During his six seasons on SNL, he created many popular characters, such as the snarky flight attendant and one of The Gap Girls, but he was perhaps best known for appearing as himself in his Hollywood Minute segments during Weekend Update. He also met Chris Farley during his time on the show, and their onscreen chemistry was so strong that the hilarious duo went on to star in the comedy classicsBlack Sheep and Tommy Boy. Spade has also had a successful TV career that continues to this day, spending seven seasons on the hit sitcom Just Shoot Me on NBC, three seasons as the host of The Showbiz Show with David Spade on Comedy Central, and seven seasons as one of the leads of Rules of Engagement for CBS.
Many SNL cast members have a history in improv and sketch acting, but Spade is one of the rare pure standup comics who made the transition to cast member on the show. That explains why he’s so comfortable picking up the microphone for his performances at The Venetian, where he brings the same verbal wit and sarcastic attitude towards celebrity that made him such a hit during his wildly popularHollywood Minute segments.
The king of the sarcastic zing, the David Spade Live residency shows at The Venetian showcase the hilarious skills that have made the star an enduringly popular and incredibly successful comedian across a number of mediums during a career that has spanned two and a half decades.
