Spade Turns the Joke on Hollywood
August 17, 2005

Few could forget David Spade's "Hollywood Minute" on "Saturday Night Live," and if you liked that, you certainly won't want to miss the actor as he sticks it to Tinseltown once again as the host of Comedy Central's, "The Showbiz Show with David Spade."

"I used to do a lot of that kind of stuff on ‘Saturday Night Live,'" Spade said. "I think it's kind of my thing."

The new show will spoof entertainment news shows, like for instance, "Extra." It's kind of like a Hollywood version of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

"Definitely, whoever's in the news, I've got to say something about," Spade insisted.

Except there's one big difference -- some of the people who Spade will make fun of on the show are going to be his friends. "Yeah, I just had a birthday with a bunch of these people, and I was like, ‘This is the last time they all get one room,'" Spade recalled. "But it will be tricky."

As for other projects, with comedies like "Wedding Crashers" doing so well, Spade is talking about doing a mullet-loving sequel to "Joe Dirt."

But Spade's life may get a little lonelier once "The Showbiz Show" debuts in September. Although the actor said, "I don't have any friends, and I'm not going to have any after this, so it doesn't matter."
