The Ice House in Comedy Club has just announced that Saturday Night Live favorite David Spade will perform two special event shows on Friday, November 22. Tickets are $35 and are available through the Ice House website at www.icehousecomedy.com or by phone at (626) 577-1894. Cocoa Brown will be rescheduled to a later date.

Nominated for a 1999 Emmy Award for his memorable role as Dennis Finch, the wise-cracking, power-hungry assistant on Just Shoot Me, David Spade became a household favorite during his five-year stint as a cast member of NBC’s Saturday Night Live. The comedian was also nominated for a Golden Globe in 2000, and an American Comedy Award in 1999, for his work on Just Shoot Me.

In addition to SNL, Spade has guest-starred on the critically acclaimed The Larry Sanders Show and appeared in HBO’s 13th Annual Young Comedians Special. In 1999 he headlined his own HBO special, David Spade: Take the Hit. Spade has also appeared in numerous films, including Tommy Boy, Joe Dirt, Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star, Benchwarmers and Grown Ups . He has also done voice work for the animated films, The Emperor’s New Groove, Racing Stripes and Hotel Transylvania.

On the small screen, Spade was recently seen on the seventh and final season of the CBS comedy Rules of Engagement. The show was produced by Sony’s Happy Madison Productions and centered around three men, in different stages of  relationships: married, engaged and single. The half hour situational comedy stared Spade as the content bachelor and serial dater, as the comedy follows this unique friendship. The show enjoyed excellent ratings throughout all seven seasons.

Most recently Spade reunited with Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, and Kevin James in Sony Pictures’ Grown Ups 2. The film is a follow up to the 2010 hit comedy about a group of childhood friends who reunite years later. The film was released on July 12, 2013 and grossed $42 million opening weekend.

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 named the “Hot Stand-Up Comedian of the Year” by Rolling Stone magazine. Some of Spade’s memorable characters on SNL, where he served as both a writer and a performer, included the sarcastic “Hollywood Minute” reporter on “Weekend Update” and he also started the catch phrases “And you are…?” and “Buh-Bye!”.

David Spade will perform two (2) shows at 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on Friday, November 22. Tickets are $35 and are available at www.icehousecomedy.com or through the Ice House box office at (626) 577-1894. This is special event show.
