David Spade is the kind of comedian you never forget, no matter how long it’s been since you last saw him. Thanks to roles in hit movies like Tommy Boy, Black Sheep, and the criminally underrated Joe Dirt, Spade has been a permanent fixture in American pop culture ever since he arrived on Saturday Night Live in 1995. But in his new Netflix special, Nothing Personal, Spade reminds the audience that before he became one half of comedy’s most beloved duos (R.I.P. Chris Farley), he was just another circuit stand-up trying to make it in the big leagues.
Fresh off his guest hosting duties on Bachelor in Paradise, Spade is in a fun and feisty mood on Nothing Personal as he uses his signature sarcastic wit to poke fun of everyone from Dr. Fauci and the Moderna vaccine to Sylvester Stallone and his mom’s beloved aging dog. But true to his tendency to self-deprecate, Spade also puts himself under the microscope, allowing the audience to laugh at him as well. In the combat sport of comedy, Spade’s style of stand-up is a reminder that in order to dish it out, you have to be able to take it too.
Nothing Personal is available to stream globally on April 26.
