Schaumburg, IL (February 10, 2017) – Spade can be seen in the cult classics “Joe Dirt” and “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser,” directed by Fred Wolf, with whom he also co-wrote the script. Spade reprises his role as the hilarious and endearing “white trash” misfit. The film premiered on Crackle’s streaming service on July 16, 2015 and has been streamed more than 2 million times, making it Crackle’s most watched original program to date.
On the big screen, Spade continues to be a box office draw. He was seen in Sony Pictures’ “Grown Ups 2” alongside Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, and Kevin James. The film is a follow up to the 2010 hit comedy about a group of childhood friends who reunite years later. Both movies were a financial success, each earning over $200 million dollars worldwide at the box office.
Other popular film credits include Sony Pictures’ “Benchwarmers” and Paramount Pictures’ “Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star”, the latter which he co-wrote with Fred Wolf. Both opened at #1 at the box office and enjoyed both critical and commercial success. Spade also co-starred with SNL alumnus Chris Farley in the films “Tommy Boy” and “Blacksheep,” the former for which the pair won a 1996 MTV Movie Award for ‘Best On-Screen Duo’. He has also appeared in “Reality Bites,” “Light Sleeper,” “Coneheads” and “Lost & Found,” that latter for which he also co-wrote the screenplay.
Born in Birmingham, Michigan, and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, Spade began his career by performing stand-up comedy in clubs, theaters and colleges across the country. He made his television debut on SNL and was soon after named the “Hot Stand-Up Comedian of the Year” by Rolling Stone magazine. As a writer and a performer on SNL for five years, he is best known for his memorable characters including the sarcastic “Hollywood Minute” reporter on “Weekend Update” and catch phrases like “And you are…?” and “Buh-Bye!”.
